    I preface this by saying my skin chemistry frequently does not work well with sweet scents. They become cloying and sticky. Unfortunately for me, Alice is no exception. I had hoped the Bergamot note would rescue it for me and it smelled nice in the Imp. Then I put it on.. and unfortunately within about an hour it turned into the kind of smell associated with cheap, bubblegummy toilet fresheners. Not a good scent for me. I will give it another try after resting it several weeks but for now, this is one to stay far.. far away from.

    Since perfume is so subjective, my 5 stars are based on the scent lasting through the day and not irritating my sensitive skin or giving me a headache. This scent is Alice reading a book and daydreaming beneath a tree before she climbs down the rabbit hole and gets into all those wild adventures. If you’re looking for a light and subtle baby soft fragrance, sweet but never obtrusive–Alice is the innocent girl in a blue dress for you!

    I initially loved Alice in the bottle, but when applied it turned powdery on me. I let it sit for about three weeks, and tried it again. It is one of my favorites now. I do still get a powdery scent, but it is not as much as when I first received the imp, and the other notes can come through. There is a full size bottle on order, and I can’t wait until it gets here!

    I think that this is the most perfect Alice in Wonderland scent. It’s proper and girly, but also unusual in the best way. Dry carnation with a little spiciness, creamy milk and honey, and a bergamot tea. It’s dry, warm, floral, creamy, and slightly gourmand. One of my favorites.

    This smell is accurately described. It is an intoxicating smell, and the dry-down is very interesting for a gourmandy scent. It reminds me of Indian rice pudding with cardamom. I LOVE this, I ordered the imp’s ear and will definitely be getting a full size. It is a scent for people that love gourmands but has a dry-down that is a bit more grown up.

    “Alice” is like a powdery, delicious turkish delight. Or honeyed milk with rose jam on warm spice cookies served in the garden. It isn’t altogether childlike, though it is very sweet, and it isn’t old-lady-floral scented, but definitely rose-y. Comforting and decadent, it has replaced a similar scent from a popular British line that I enjoyed but was discontinued. “Alice” is much better in my opinion and doesn’t have that alcohol/petroleum smell the British perfume does and, a big plus, it doesn’t give me a headache! I love this so much, it makes me ridiculously happy! My new beloved favorite, too!

    Initially when applied it’s very flowery yet spicy (bergamot?). I can smell lots of honey too. It’s a strong scent, not a bad thing! After about 12 hours I can detect a hint of milk. This is a good perfume if you like flowerly, powdery, sweet scents.

    This is a very, very warm smell. On me, it’s very spicy, which I guess is the bergamot. It smells almost like a milky chai tea, but sweeter. I absolutely love it.

    Definitely warmed up to this. It’s soft and smells really good on.

    “Curiouser and curiouser. Milk and honey with rose, carnation and bergamot.”

    I was a little wary, as floral scents have the tendency to turn into lavatory air-freshener on me.
    In the bottle: Very spicy and floral, like stuffing fresh flower petals up your nose. Something soft and sweet lingers behind, though; perhaps that’s the honey.
    Wet: Still very spicy, to the point of making my nose burn slightly. There is a very faint Earl Grey scent to it, like flowers anointed with bergamot oil.
    Dry: Delightful! It settled down into a muddled bouquet of carnations and roses, faintly sweetened by the honey and spiked with the citrus-y scent of the bergamot. Overall, I could definitely see this being a young Victorian maiden’s perfume. It has enough throw to it for passersby to comment on it, and is subtle enough not to irritate others. One of my new favourites.

    Carnation is the primary note on my skin, but I love the lightness of this blend. Every time I catch a whiff of it it makes me smile.

    It smells like a high-quality marzipan cookie one might eat with a perfectly brewed cup of tea. A very light scent, on the skin it turns somewhat powdery but also cookie-spicey and clean. It’s a very light-hearted scent!

    Alice smells clean and creamy. Light enough for daily use but not overtly flowery.

    One of my favorites. I put this on and I’m instantly happy. It’s just perfect.

    This is a clean blend, with forward notes of carnation and bergamot.

    By my wife: No wonder Alice is in beloved favorites! It was frimp from lab and I just fell in love with that scent! For me it smells like rosewood – not fresh cut rose – but a smokey one. Maybe like wild rose? And that’s great! I also sense some creamy flowers and something like spices. It reminds me of winter or Christmas. It all blends smoothly together – that makes Alice perfect! I’m definitely going to buy a bottle next time!

    Alice is as described: milk, tea, bergamot. Its a lovely milky scent that balances well with the tea. A great scent. Yummy without being foodie.
