Vanilla Craves Terror

Desperately ISO 2 bottles of Vanilla Craves Terror. By the time I received my decant and realized I loved it, it was all gone!

Any chance Julia might make more available on eBay? If anyone has a bottle (even decants) they're wanting to sell, please let me know!

halloween decant circle

I've got a decant circle up for the new Halloween scents right over here! I'd like to order by Tuesday, so please get your requests in over the weekend. :) thanks!

Vintage Hallowe'en

Before Hallowe'en debuts at Arcana (very soon), here are some Vintage Hallowe'en perfumes and a very few left from last year. If you're looking for Apples Crave Vanilla, it's in the Apples Crave section and also in the Arcana Classics section. If you're looking for Holy Terror, it's in both the Vintage Hallowe'en section and the Arcana Classics section.



Many kisses,

justice decant circle!

I'm closing this up and placing my order Tuesday morning, so you've got a little time if you're intrigued! Decants are $3.50 each and shipping starts at $3.

Justice decants.

Winternights (2014)

Is anyone looking for a bottle of Winternights?

The ancient pagan Norse revels of Winternights and Walpurgis once marked the beginning and ending of a long and frozen winter season. Feast, give thanks, ward off Frost Giants, or just frolic with this mirthful Northern mix of three vanillas, frosty peppermint, a dab of white musk, and a hint of ripe young berries encased in ice.

This bottle is completely fresh and totally full, tested cleanly once, and comes from a smoke-free home.  We have bunnies and cats, and even though the cats aren't allowed anywhere near the perfume, you should still know.  ^.^

My wife got me this bottle for Christmas in 2014, and I hate giving it up because it always cheers me up to smell.  :)  But sadly, vanilla never gets along with my skin...

$17 for the bottle + $3 shipping inside the US.  If you're outside the US, I might have to look up shipping rates...^.^;;

8/28/15: Sold! I hope it gets lots and lots of love in its new home.  :)


Lady Justice!

Hello sweetlings!

When I was little, my ever-restless dad bailed out of his career in Political Science to announce he would become a lawyer. It couldn't last and didn't: he quit law school in his final year. But what I remember from this period is begging for (and getting!) kittens. Miranda was a soft grey kitten named after Miranda v. Arizona, and Gideon was an orange tabby named after Gideon v. Wainwright. These 2 legal cases relate to the rights of the accused, rights my dad held very dearly. As he said, we're all a heartbeat away from needing them.

Then, this summer, an Ecuadoran friend was arrested in our tiny, 99% white town over a conversation about marijuana. In the ensuing comedy of errors, the police seized a bottle of pure, triple-distilled peppermint oil and labeled it, "Suspected LSD: Sent to Lab for analysis." (Peppermint Candyflip HAD to happen!)

The Lady Justice Collection is a benefit for our innocent friend. 100% of the profits are being donated to his cause.

De Minimis Non Curat Lex:  The law does not concern itself with trifles. AKA Circus by the Sea. A cool blend of saltwater, ocean air, rain-soaked blackberries, neroli, coconut, and a hint of green cognac absolute.

Gideon:  Inspired by a spunky orange tabby kitten named after Gideon v. Wainwright. Apricot, golden amber, and a saucerful of cream.

Miranda:  Inspired by a soft grey kitten named after Miranda v. Arizona. Pink tuberose petals, tropical Monoi de Tahiti, pearl musk, strawberries, and sugary watermelon.

Peppermint Candyflip:   A psychedelic blast of cold peppermint dries down to a trippy candy center of blue frosting, sugar cookies, pink musk, blueberry candy, bakery vanilla, bergamot syrup, and lemondrops.

PLUS, 2 new limited edition Layering Notes.

Garnet Grapefruit:  The simple scent of refreshing, citrusy red grapefruit.

Grapefruit Rouge:  A green, sweetly radiant grapefruit, softened with fruitiness.

And the return of an old favorite.

Latitude:  Coconut husks and a honeyed mix of tropical flowers: Tahitian tiare, Lady of the Night, pink phlox, columbine, night-blooming boneflower, magnolia, and Angel's Trumpet.

Sales! Summer Constellations!

Good morning, beloved Arcanians,

I've been soooo super busy that I'm only just now getting a chance to post about this delightful summer line.

Summer Constellations

Cygnus:  The Swan. Of all the myths surrounding Cygnus, our favorite is that he is vain Queen Cassiopeia's pampered pet. Soft, antique amber, rose petal syrup, rose-infused cupcakes, and fluffy white frosting.

Delphinus:  This matchmaking dolphin convinced beautiful sea-nymph Amphitrite to marry Poseidon. Peach sorbet, sugared coconut milk, and a tiny drop of Key lime.

Draco:  The bold dragon who stood sentry over Hera's golden apples in the garden of the Hesperides. Crisp apples, black amber resin, pineapple, black tea, and cognac absolute.

Lacerta:  The Lizard. Ancient Greeks identified no constellation in this spot, but Native American Chumash astronomers saw a lizard, while Chinese astronomers recognized Tengshe, the flying dragon-snake. Cassis, strawberry, watermelon, blackcurrant, opium, white musk, and a hint of luminous green scales.

Lyra:  Containing the bright star Vega, Lyra represents the enchanted lyre of gifted, tragic Orpheus. Smoky oudh with cool vanilla,
caramelized apricot, golden woods, rich musk, and honeyed osmanthus.

Ophiuchus:  The snake-handler holds the constellation Serpens in the night sky. Blackest vanilla, sweet cream, and patchouli wind around mandarin, tangerine, petitgrain, ginger, citron, and bright frankincense tears.

Piscis Australis:  The Southern Fish gulps water flowing from the urn of Aquarius. A clean, airy handful of acacia blossoms, neroli, tuberose, asphodel, and native gardenia petals are scattered over banana fruit and white amber. **almost sold out**

You'll find these at places Arcana is sold:

Alec d'Urberville, At Last!

Hello darlings! Here is all of my news:

Although Alec d'Urberville is a very beloved Arcana Classic, it hasn't been available in over a year! At last!


Another Arcana Classic which hasn't been available recently is the beautiful Aestas:


Persephone's Flowers will be permanently discontinued in just under 5 days, so if you love it, please get it now: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Arcana-Perfume-Oil-Persephones-Flowers-Unopened-Straight-From-Arcana-HQ-/121672707480

And, finally, this is for a very good cause:
