Arcana Apples Crave Cider
Bright, spiced apple cider drizzled with honey and a small wisp of smoke.
If you follow this blog, then you know that I have this weird thing about apple scents. While I love the smell and taste of apples in real life, I can’t stand apple-scented things. I have no explanation for this. Because of that, take this review with a grain of salt.
In the bottle: Well, those are definitely apples! This is a very realistic apple note too, and very much a red apple note specifically. The cider is very distinct too. Not getting much smoke yet.
On the skin: The spices of the cider come out more on the skin, and I’m getting some nutmeg and cinnamon, with maybe a tiny hint of clove. At first, it threatens to go into Yankee Candle territory, but it never goes there. I’m getting more of the smokiness and less of the actual apples. As a result, I like this more than I thought I would! It’s still too apple-y for me, but it’s probably my favorite apple scent that I’ve tried. It’s really perfect for autumn. Throw is low.
TL;DR: Spiced apple cider and a touch of smoke. Not too bad actually. 3/5.
