Hello and boo, spooky babies! We are here with another stall to add to the All Hallows Bazaar. We are continuing the trend of smelling amazing and this time there is a story to go along with it. I would like to introduce Wylde Ivy! The thing I love about this company is that every collection comes with a story. Definitely check out the video review below for the full story time…. It’s very dramatic. Let’s head into Jack’s Woods in the All Hallows Bazaar: Wylde Ivy 2020 Jack’s Woods Collection stall.
We want to send a huge thank you to Wylde Ivy for sending this collection to share with you. I loved being able to share the scents and the story of Jack’s Woods in the video. This is a wonderfully autumn-themed collection, and can I touch on how beautiful the packaging is? Let’s get into some details of the All Hallows Bazaar: Wylde Ivy 2020 Jack’s Woods Collection stall.
Mists and Moonlight: This perfume is made for the vanilla lovers. The first thing that you smell is the sweet, smokiness of the vanilla, but this isn’t just your run of the mill vanilla perfume, nay nay. This has notes of vanilla, white amber, benzoin, aged cedarwood, pink peppercorn and tonka beans. The wood adds the smokiness while the pink peppercorn gives it a bite and the tonka adds depth. This is a perfectly warm vanilla scent with a smoky, peppery kick.
Jack’s Woods: This perfume is known formerly as Friend of Jack. It has notes of pumpkin, autumn grasses, charred wood, black peppercorn, ginger, smoky nutmeg, allspice, amber musk, tobacco leaves and the smell of a bonfire travelling in the autumn breeze. This is a wonderfully balanced fall scent. You smell the sweetness of the pumpkin and the spices but you evenly smell the charred wood and smoke. The smell of smoke in perfumes can tend to smell a bit like Band-aids, but here, it is so perfectly balanced between sweet and smoky with no strange after smells. Love this scent.
Gingerbread Cottage: When I hear gingerbread, I don’t usually think of Halloween, since it tends to smell a bit more like Christmas. However, this one from the All Hallows Bazaar: Wylde Ivy 2020 Jack’s Woods Collection changes the game in terms of gingerbread scents. This perfume takes the scent to darker places with notes of fresh and warm gingerbread, weathered wood, astringent clove, tonka bean, vanilla, black peppercorn, corn husks and sugar musk. This isn’t your average gingerbread! While you can smell the notes of your typical gingerbread, the pepper adds intense spice and the corn husks add an earthiness you wouldn’t have otherwise. This is a great, warm perfume that can transition easily from fall to winter.
Stone Circle: This scent is unlike anything else in the All Hallows Bazaar: Wylde Ivy 2020 Jack’s Woods Collection and one of my favorites. This is truly unisex and such a clean scent. While this doesn’t necessarily smell like Halloween, this is a perfume/cologne that you can use all year long. It has notes of black amber, aged sandalwood, dried vanilla, plus moonlight and some magic. You wouldn’t think given the scent notes that it would smell as clean as it does. Sandalwood is one of my favorite scents and it tends to have a warm smell, but I maintain that this is just a brighter scent than you would expect. Love this one.
Dead Woods Bonfire: In my opinion, this one smells fairly similar to Jack’s Woods with a few differences. Jack’s Woods actually seems a little smokier than Dead Woods Bonfire, and this one is a bit sweeter. I believe that is because of the addition of amber, which tends to have a heavy sweetness and you can really smell that amid the smokiness. This perfume has notes of pumpkin roasted on an open fire and dusted with cinnamon and clove, charred oud, sandalwood, molten amber, sweet wood ash and aged leather. The leather is very slight and thankfully so, as leather tends to take over whatever smell it included in. You can slightly smell the pumpkin and spice, but this perfume is mainly charred oud and amber. It’s splendidly sweet and smoky.
That is all for the All Hallows Bazaar: Wylde Ivy 2020 Jack’s Woods Collection stall! My favorites are Stone Circle, Mists and Moonlight and Dead Woods Bonfire. All of the full size perfumes are $30, but there are smaller sampler sets so that you can try the whole collection and pick your favorite. But remember, this is a limited edition collection for Halloween, so if you want to travel into Jack’s Woods, you best do it before the end of the month. If you would like to look at their other collections, you can look through them HERE and I recommend that you do! Even though this collection was sent to me, I was not paid for this review, and all opinions are my own.
