I'll be reviewing Bloody Orange first, and as described on alicepeter.com:
You won’t resist the passion of this orange! Lively and bubbly citrus fruits merge with a mischievous carrot. A magical explosion ensues, blasting a fresh bouquet of water flowers through the air. The aftermath is an inevitable swirlNotes listed are:
of amber and caramel. As these forces flare, an earthy yet potent patchouli is wrapped in white musk, for a subtle relief.
Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Bergamot
Carrot, Cyclamen, Lotus, Jasmine, Cumin, Saffron, Cinnamon
Amber, Cedar, Patchouli, Leather, Vanilla, Caramel, White Musk
Clearly marketed towards younger women, Alice & Peter perfume bottles are in the form of cupcakes. Personally, I love the whimsical nature of these. But the real question is, how does Bloody Orange smell?
The downside? I did not find Bloody Orange to be very long lasting, and I wanted it to be. After an hour or so, I can still smell it by sniffing, but it is definitely close to the body. I know that citrus based scents can be a bit ephemeral, so it will be interesting to see the lasting power of the others. Bloody Orange is $49 for 1 fl.oz and can be found at Urban Outfitters, Henri Bendel, or Alice & Peter. Next up in this series of reviews will be Cheery Cherry!
Disclosure: I purchased this.
