Arcana Blossoms Crave Porches

Disclaimer - all products were purchased by me. 

One more addition to the Porches lineup that was released late this summer...

Blossoms Crave Porches

Old garden cultivars - magnolia, wisteria, verbena and lilac - at dawn. Espresso, fir and earth. 

 This starts out smelling like fir and wet dirt. It's cold and kinda clean smelling, but also fresh. I swear I'm getting lime in here as well, and that must be from the verbena. It reminds me of The Bathing Garden's Netherworld Zombie wax, which is a dirt and lime smell. Once it dries down, it's all florals. I'm mostly getting the wisteria and magnolia with a soft, creamy lilac underneath. It's kinda sweet and very clean smelling at this point, but it reminds me of fabric softener. Total wear time was around seven hours with a moderate to strong sillage.

Final thoughts - a pretty, unique blend but I'm content with a sample vial. The dirt note had me worried, but that combined with the citrus-y verbena ended up being my favorite part. I grabbed a sample through Ajevie, but you can find full bottles through the Villainess website and also through the Pretty Indulgent website.
