Nocturne Alchemy: Eternal Luxor Summer and Eternal Egypt Vanille



Eternal Luxor Summer- Notes: Glorious white amber, Egyptian lemon sugar resin, Nile reed, Egyptian white tea leaf, black coconut, coconut cream, white fig and a drop each of blue and black peppercorn. 

In the bottle, Eternal Luxor Summer smells of lemony coconut treats underscored by vanilla musk. I have not sniffed the original Eternal Luxor perfume that this one is a flanker for but it is on my long list to try. Applied to the wrists, a delicate arc of curled lemon peel nuzzles against the skin. Sugary amber chips imbued with subtle coconut and vanilla paste comprise the foundation of the perfume. The fig adds the milky coconut tones. Eternal Luxor Summer's mellow coconut hue does lend a summery beach feel to the scent. 


Eternal Egypt Vanille- Notes: Crystal absolute, vanilla musk, Bastet's ice cream accord, Bourbon Vanille absolute, Crystalline, vanilla beans and white amber absolute. 

I love this shimmery pearlized blue bottle. The perfume inside is pretty amazing too. A feast of vanilla to delight the nose. Fluffy peaks of vanilla meringue, airy and crisp, dot the skin with fragrant bliss. There is a sweet candied tobacco and almond current running beneath the vanilla from the Bourbon Vanille absolute that is toothsome in the heart of the scent. It creates a shift from crisp meringue to chewy vanilla with a hint of caramel. It wears easily and for a long duration. It is one of my favorites from my summer order. 

These two scents were part of Nocturne Alchemy's Summer Release. They are no longer on the website but may return next year since this was their debut release. They also can be found from time to time in the NA Marketplace on Facebook. I have two more scents from my summer order to feature soon. I tried to keep my order small. There will be a Bastet Bazaar opening up this weekend with various limited edition perfumes, body care, home fragrance and ephemera. I love seeing what is on offer in the Bazaar. I usually end up picking up a crystal sun catcher. I gave one to each daughter. 

Do you like vanilla scented things?
