Reviews of Bonfires at Dusk by Arcana

Bonfires dot the rolling hillsides
Figures dance around and around
To drums that pulse out echoes of darkness
Moving to the pagan sound

Somewhere in a hidden memory
Images float before my eyes
Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires
And dancing till the next sunrise

So first off this is not "Stale campfire smoke on your clothing" There is no food roasting, but plenty of green wet wood burning hot. Eventually.

There is a really big bonfire, in a clearing a little way down the path buy you're still on your way.

It starts out with the lavender and beeswax creating a deceptively sweet accord for the first few minutes, but as those settle, the smoke comes out, brightened by juniper and supported by the sandalwood. That progression (more resinous woods and less lavender) seems to remain pretty steady after the first 30-45min (depending on application).

This one lasts and lasts (2 days plus on a strip, longer than I want to test on skin) but eventually the smoke falls away and you're left with a slightly woody beeswax.

I like this quite a bit but might look for a smoky Incence type of fragrance to layer it with.
