White Rabbit - Enchanticals

White Rabbit
Enchanticals Perfume

The frantic little fur ball...always running around with that over sized pocket watch. What was he in such a hurry for down in Wonderland? This perfume is in homage to that cute little fella with a blend of white things like white gardenia, a hint of fluffy coconut, then I added some fresh orange essential oil, dark juicy berries, tree barks & mosses and ancient ambers. Subtle, fresh and super alluring while being completely enchanting and fit to be adored by all on both sides of the Rabbit hole. Fragrance Family: Modern/Floral, Feminine.

In the vial White Rabbit smells foody - I can smell the orange and the berries, but applied to the skin the white floral comes out and it's quite potent.  It's sweetened by the coconut, which I took for vanilla until I read the notes and then realised immediately I was going up the wrong path there. This is a heady, 'perfumey' perfume - I was right on the edge of a headache with it for the first half hour or so. Once it dries down it softens to a smooth, foody floral, but it still has a fair bit of throw. Longevity is medium - I reapplied after about 5 hours. The moss and amber were lost on me - this was straight up floral gourmand. 

2/5 Meh. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. 

Day 138! 


  1. Another rabbit! I'm a bit put off by the idea of berries to be honest, although one of my favourite recent scents was Cassis Rose (The Body Shop) - worth trying you think or go straight for Twyla fur ball Beatrix?

  2. I have this one and I love, love, love the smell in bottle. But same issues here on the dry down though. Almost every one I own from Enchanticals ends up smelling like a white floral or aldehyde of some type on the dry down. I do not know if it is a fixative they use or just my skin. It is a mystery to me, because they surely do not smell alike in bottle or even close (like DC can to me).

    And, is it just me or does Enchanticals and BPAL have a perfume name war going on? I swear the two have identical names for so many scents. Sort of funny.

    1. There do seem to be similarities, but to be fair, Alice in Wonderland was a bit of a craze a couple of years ago and every indie seller seemed to have a collection based on it (not to mention Urban Decay and the like).
