64: arcana mcnaughty nog


mcnaughty_nogNext up, and officially catching me up on my review-a-day posts, is another nog-based scent: McNaughty Nog.

Exclusive to The Rhinestone Housewife! Eggnog, Arcana’s beloved yellow cake note, rum, fresh milk, nutmeg, and a drizzle of toasty caramel.

In the bottle, McNaughty Nog smells abrasively sweet. It’s like a slap in the face. It’s actually kind of hard to pick out any individual notes, it’s just searingly sweet and a little spicy. There’s definitely cake in there somewhere.

Wet on skin, it’s sweet, spicy yellow cake. Rich, with lots of nutmeg and a drizzle of cream.

After a few minutes the spiciness softens a bit and the cake becomes more dominant. A few minutes later, a toasty caramel note joins the party.

It stays like this as it wears – rich, spicy yellow cake with a hint of cream and toasty caramel.

I like this one more than Krampus Nog – it’s sweeter, so of course I do, plus cake – but I do still with it was less spicy. That’s my skin chemistry doing its usual thing, though, so your mileage may vary. Thankfully it does get slightly less spicy and more creamy as it wears.

Elevator Pitch: Rich, spicy yellow cake with a hint of cream and toasty caramel. Definitely one for the gourmand lovers.
