I adore powdery fragrances, so naturally, Naughty Alice is a fragrance I admire. It's not really baby powder to my nose, in fact it's more floral, juicy and sweet.
I swear I can smell pear in the top notes of Naughty Alice. The scent is very feminine, luscious and smooth. If I had to describe the way it smells to me, I'd say sugared pears, sweet ylang ylang and powdered roses.
Although the name Naughty Alice is somewhat misleading, do not be swayed into thinking that this fragrance isn't sensual, it's just not outright sexy or 'naughty' as such. It's a shy scent at times, but it's also very playful and captivating.
The cute Alice in Wonderland reference suits the composition well, with the scent resembling that sweet, childish curiousity. I tend to get a lot of musky vanilla towards the drydown, which is pleasing and of course, inoffensive. It's a nice, subtle fragrance that can be worn almost all year round.
The longevity is quite impressive on my skin, lasting a good full day. I haven't really had a chance to be exposed to many Vivienne Westwood perfumes, only admired the bottles from afar. But truth be told, Naughty Alice is far more than just a pretty bottle. There's a beautiful scent inside that is just waiting to be discovered.
