Another scent from the Mad Tea Party line, but I’ve always giggled at the title and then chose another of my go-to scents over even testing it prior to this project.
Scent Name: Eat Me
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – Mad Tea Party
Scent Description and Notes: “Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words ‘EAT ME’ were beautifully marked in currants.
‘Well, I’ll eat it,’ said Alice, ‘and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door; so either way I’ll get into the garden, and I don’t care which happens!’
She ate a little bit, and said anxiously to herself, ‘Which way? Which way?’, holding her hand on the top of her head to feel which way it was growing, and she was quite surprised to find that she remained the same size: to be sure, this generally happens when one eats cake, but Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way.
Three white cakes, vanilla, and red and black currants.
BPAL’s Eat Me is not for eating. Please use common sense, and remember: perfume oils are for external use only.” – BPAL
Oil Color: Brassed oil.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The label wrapped around the bottle features an Art-Deco inspired Phoenix with the the name of the company at the bottle of the image. On the other side, the title of the scent written in large, clear black font outlined with red on the front.
- In the Imp (ITI): Very strong notes of white, fluffy cake infused with vanilla. I don’t smell the currants, yet.
- Wet: Hmm, the cake has turned a bit like fruit cake for me, and I think that might be due to the currants. There is a little undertone of toasted coconut for some reason as well. I think I liked it better in the bottle.
- Dry: The fruitcake aspect has died down and now I smell vanilla and a hint of white cake. It’s sweet and foody, but not my style.
