Wicked Good Perfume "Witches Cauldron" Review October 2020
At the top of our box, we received a little welcome note. I have actually been reviewing this subscription for a year now and here are a few things to note about these fragrances:
- They are formulated without phthalates, parabens, or petroleum
- These are vegan and cruelty-free and they use sustainable ingredients that are responsibly sourced
- I am not a huge perfume lover because they usually give me headaches, but these unique, handcrafted fragrances do not!
This month's theme is "Witches Cauldron" which is fun and fitting for October. On one side, this card lists the products, the scents they contain, and their retail value, while the back has some information about their box review contest and some savings for scent club members.
To go with our Halloween theme, we also had a fun little surprise in our box. These black spider rings made for a very nice presentation!
Wicked Good 'Root of Hemlock' Bamboo Charcoal Incense
Our first item is a tin of bamboo charcoal incense. These little cones burn well and fill the entire room. My husband actually walked in and said "it smells like church in here" (he grew up Catholic), however, I think it reminded me more of a hookah bar! The smell is sweet and smoky with just a hint of the clove and amber followed by notes of black sandalwood and I think I even get some of the Haitian vetiver. The other scents to note are black pepper, which didn't stand out much to me, and incense. I thought it was a great blend for fall!
Wicked Good 'Slip of Yew' Gloss Dry Oil Spray
I really love the dry oil mist that I have received before and this spray is very similar, although the spray is a bit more concentrated than the mist. These oils are hydrating and soak into the skin so nicely leaving behind a lovely scent. This blend is crispy juicy apples, autumn sweet melon, and sugar crystals. Honestly, this one smells just like it sounds! I note the sweet melon which blends nicely with the fruity burst of juicy apple. It's a great fall scent, but also one that I think would work any time. My skin is loving the blend of organic coconut and argan oils that this has in it along with meadowfoam seed oil.
Wicked Good 'Wing of Fairy' Perfume Oil Roller, 10 mL - Listed Value $18.00
Our perfume roller this month is a blend of quince, lotus, muguet, peach blossom, hawthorn, orris, and cedar leaves. This is a good balance of fruity and floral notes. It is fresh and vibrant although the cedar leaves seem to add a bit of a musky scent to it at the finish for me that I really enjoy after the burst of fresh fruit at the front. Wing of Fairy is actually a very fitting name for this scent!
Wicked Good 'Wool of Bat' Perfume Spray, 1 oz. - Listed Value $29.00
Our perfume spray is a blend of labdanum (I had to look this up – it should give an amber scent), patchouli coeur, guaiacum, pepper bourbon, vanilla absolute, and black styrax. I like the scents of patchouli, bourbon, and vanilla a lot usually, but for some reason, I do not enjoy them all together here. I don't know how to put it without being rude or politically incorrect, but it has a scent that feels a bit too mature for me. It's not unpleasant, but it just doesn't appeal to me. As I mentioned, I have been reviewing this box for a year now and in that time there have been very few scents that I weren't fond of and it's bound to happen at some point. Maybe I just have an aversion to bat wool? 😜
Verdict: I thought this month's box from Wicked Good Perfume was a lot of fun. The spiders and the theme made it feel like an experience and the sweet, smoky incense provided a nice ambiance to go with it. While I love the dry oil spray and the roller, this month's spray was kind of a miss for me, but since I have been happy with 99% of the scents I've received over the past year, I don't think it's a big deal. I still feel like it's a great value for this box and I look forward to seeing what new blends they will include each month!
