Eat Me from BPAL

Recently I had a care package from my parents in the States, and part of what they sent me was perfume from Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs. I ordered Eat Me and Alice, both from their Mad Tea Party range. I love going to bed smelling like vanilla cake, fluffy white frosting, and blackcurrant jam…it’s lovely and warm and it makes me feel good.  :)  When you first put it on, it smells a bit more like cake batter than cake, which is slightly disconcerting until it warms.  But after that, it’s a sweet, lovely scent.

From their site:

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.
