Tell the Muse (she promises not to judge).
I seen this randomly when looking at the Sephora V.I.B. page.
Kat Von D will introduce two new scents in August! w00t! Very exciting. I’m a big fan of the Kat Von D Collection and adding scents to the collection will be incredible. Kat Von D Saint and Kat Von D Sinner are the names of the fragrances they are planning. If I hear further word about these I’ll let you know.
Long ago I introduced you to Black Phoenix Alchemist Lab
and my slight obsession with the brand. I’m still quite in love with BPAL but I discovered Arcana a few years ago and it’s since been as desirable as BPAL.
If you love perfume oils, Arcana will be a fab beauty discovery for you. Jump ahead to learn more.
Why perfume oil?
Perfume Oils are enriched with a heavy dose of fragrant oil making them stronger and long wearing. When blended correctly they allow for a greater throw and linger than regular perfume or toilettes. Oils are normally sold in 5-10ML bottles due to the nature of the product and expense. A little goes a long well so a smaller size will last you a very long time.
If you like a little bit of a Gothic romantic Victorian packaging Arcana perfume oils are sure to please. Housed in a small 5ml alchemist bottle with aged yellowing labels they look quite old worldly. Available in a variety of scents that are rotated constantly with limited edition scents these are truly little treasures that are easy to become addicted to.
I decided to do a Beauty Discovery on Arcana as I recently ordered a few new blends for my collection and also felt that so many people are probably missing out on the joys of perfume oil especially such unique blends as the ones Arcana creates.
Two delightful scents I hauled recently are Arcana Poison Candy Perfume and Underpinnings. At $14.95 per a 5ml bottle these are a tad more costly than the normal bottles which are $7.95. The uniquely high ingredient costs push the price a little higher but truly it’s well worth it as the throw and linger on each is incredible.
Poison Candy comes housed in green alchemist bottle much like what…well…what poison might come in. With a aged yellow tag embellished with a creepy little coffin indeed ones does worry how poisonous this candy could be! But one sniff and you’ll realize that poison never smelled so good. Ripe strawberries, rich cream, cinnamon, sugar, and honey make up a unique foody scent that smells quite like some sort of rich, decadent cake. Wonderful!
Velvet Underpinnings also priced high at $11.95 contains ingredients that are unique and high in cost but again well worthy of the extra few dollars as the scent lingers long and has great throw. Made up of chocolate, sweet cream, vanilla, sugars, spice, and everything nice, these Underpinnings are good enough to flaunt.
With a wide variety of fragrances available and an ever evolving catalog of limited edition fragrances, Arcana has my vote for a great way to indulge in small amounts of unique and interesting blends of fragrance.

Holy cows and moons! Sephora has the 0.33oz size of all the Harajuki Lovers Fragrances for $15 bucks! That’s 50% Off!
Go hauls peeps, go hauls! Before I gather them all up for myself *insert evil laugh here*
Whoa…anyone see the new Bath and Body Works Fragrant Waters? My sis and I were at BBW last Saturday morning and ran across a slew of new items one of which were these huge, super size elegant bottles of Bath and Body Fragrances.
Jump ahead for a peep!
These are incredible. 10oz size but they seem even bigger to me! Housed in a chunky, fun glass bottle each fragrance is $18.50 each and available in a variety of Bath and Body Works scents, new and old classics. These are rather ideal for Summer as they really bring to life the sparkling splash that Bath and Body is so well known for but in a quirky, clever packaging. I was pleasantly surprised that the scents last considerably longer than the normal body spray range and linger quite long.
Normal body splashes cost $12 and are 8oz in size so these aren’t much bigger for the price but as I mentioned the scent seems to linger a good deal longer with a nice throw, could be they are using more fragrance oil in these. Quite nice really and pleasantly got me back into enjoying Bath and Body Works scents with this new style packaging.
Regular splash versus Fragrant Waters
If you’re not willing to dish out for a large bottle you can indulge in the new Bath and Body Works Fragrant Waters Roller Balls. These are equally as cute and $7.50 won’t break the bank. These are ideal for throwing in your purse for a quick roll on of your favorite BBW scent. Cutes!
The scents available in the splashes and roll ons are:
- Wild HoneySuckle
- Black Amethyst
- Butterfly Flower
- White Citrus
- Japanese Cherry Blossom
- Sweat Pea
- Dancing Waters
I got mine in White Citrus, remember how I was all about the scent of White Citrus a few weeks ago? White Citrus is a fresh crispy citrus with lemon, orange and bergamot. Very refreshing and tart for the Summer weather!
With is super cute packaging I’m enjoying the reinvention of Bath and Body Works fragrances. Loves ‘em! Although they have a Summer feeling about them I’m hopeful Bath and Body Works will embrace the line and continue releasing other scents in the Fragrant Waters line. I’d love to see some Fall blends!
Muse Approved for purchase!
