Arcana Sturm und Drang
Big bold candy grapes face off with an ecstatic blend of apricot, caramel, sugary coffee, three rich ambers, and a pinch of dark patchouli.
I, like many others, have a weird dislike of all things grape scented. For me, it reminds me too much of cough syrup. Because of that, I was hesitant to try this scent, but the notes sounded so weird that I had to get a sample. Grapes + caramel + coffee? Will it work? You can buy this scent from Arcana’s store when it is open for $19 US, or on Pretty Indulgent’s website for $25 CAD.
In the bottle: Really yummy sweet coffee with a hint of caramel. Not grapes so far, but I’m not mad about that.
On the skin: The coffee and caramel remain the strongest, but I think I can detect some amber and a touch of something fruity. Not sure if that’s the apricot or the grapes. I honestly don’t get any grapes, and that’s okay. I really like this, but it seems to fade very quickly on my skin, which is disappointing.
TL;DR: Sweet coffee and caramel with a little amber and the tiniest hint of someting fruity. Yummy, but does not last long. 3.5/5.
