Nocturne Alchemy: Tibetan Crystalline and Moonstone

Moonstone by Nocturne Alchemy- Notes: African white vanilla and Crystalline (a Nocturne Alchemy vanilla accord). $27

Inhaling Moonstone from the bottle reveals a soft woody vanilla marshmallow musk. Layered on the skin, gauzy vanilla lace billows forth, edible and both creamy and chewy. It vacillates between an airy cottony vanilla and a chewier mallow nougat vanilla. I love how is wears on my skin, all creamy and shining with vanilla bliss. 

Tibetan Crystalline by Nocturne Alchemy- Notes: Indian nag champa, Indian sandalwood, benzoin, henna, Mesua Ferrea absolute, aged Crystalline absolute, Tibetan musk and bergamot leaf essential oil. $27

 Fresh from the amber vial, a serene and whisper soft nag champa emerges with facets of velvety flower petals, plush herb leaves and a breath of neroli. Once applied to the wrists, creamy sandalwood and sweet benzoin flesh out the earthy yet refined incense of the nag champa. It dries into an elegant fleecy nag champa blend that I adore.

Both of these scents are sold under the Studio Limited line of Nocturne Alchemy. These scents are limited in the fact that there are limited resources for some of the ingredients so once they are out, they may potentially be out for a long while. If you are a vanilla lover or nag champa lover, either of these could become fast favorites.
