How Doth the Little Crocodile Perfume Oil

$4.60$19.75

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!

Chocolate peppermint, mint-soaked vanilla, pistachio, oakmoss, and green cedar.

The Dodgson Collection.

Scents inspired by the madness of Alice’s sojourns to Wonderland.

++Moral Hymnody and Nonsense

Lewis Carroll used the Looking Glasses and Rabbit Holes of his fantasy world to mock many contemporary conventions and demonstrate, through nonsense, the strangeness of the human condition. The madness of Wonderland illustrated the absurdities he perceived in the strict, orderly world he lived in.

In the first perfumes of this subseries, our scents parallel the poetic parodies: Lewis Carroll versus Isaac Watts.

    For those saying it smells like pencil shaving … I did agree at first… wait let it age and then it is what it is suppose to be -absolutely wonderful! perfect balance of foody and woodsy.

    Simply delectable! BPAL’s scents are so complexly layered- chocolate and mint of course, with gorgeous woody, nutty undertones. Very warm and soothing, forest-y and sweet, with just a hint of something smokey.

    Love love love love LOVE love. Woody chocolate, a hint of crispness, a hint of mossiness. It’s reminiscent of more recent 13 blends. Nothing at all like a crocodile, and everything like perfection. Can’t stop sniffing and I need a bottle!

    Where I’d wear this: Dry summers, grabbing an icecream

    This comes out far more woody on me, although the faintest hint of chocolate and mint linger, after half a day of wear the cedar scent has faded away almost entirely but the ghost of chocolate and mint is still on my skin. I was dubious when I smelled it in the imp, because it smelled oddly dusty, but on my skin it is a very warm scent that I enjoy enough to have bought a full size bottle.

    I’ve just recently discovered BPAL and this was sent as a frimp with my 2nd order and I loved it. In the bottle and wet on my skin it has a strong chocolatey smell with just a touch of mint coming through, but ooh when it dries it is just gorgeous, it becomes lovely and subtle (not overpowering or cloying which chocolate scents can be) with just a hint of cedar and moss. This is definitely a keeper and I’ll be adding a bottle (or 2) to my next order

    Smells like chocolate Greed (lol!) Mint, moss, cedar and a hint of chocolate – foody and woody all at once.

    I’m not usually into food smells but PBAL’s gourmands are the best. Its melted chocolate, mint, vanilla and pistachios. I smell like an amazing melted ice cream cone but with a depth that makes it more then just sweets and candy.
