Alkemia Carnival of Illustrious Hearts Oil has notes of French sugarcreams, candied orange blossoms, raspberry cotton candy, rosewater torte filling, and Bourbon vanilla amber.
"This carnival of illustrious hearts
Like butterflies, errant and flamboyant,
In the cool decor, with delicate lightning in the chandeliers
Crossing the madness of the twirling ball."
- Charles Baudeleire.

Reddit - "I love Carnival of Illustrious Hearts. Yes, it's sweet, but it has an incense/amber base that rescues it from sickening candy. I smell rose, some neroli, perhaps, cotton candy & marshmallow & it smells divine on my skin. Try it! Definitely a fall/winter fragrance."
Reddit - "Calliope, but make it sweeter. If you've ever smelled that, tart, perfumy cotton candy, this is pretty much what you get. Extremely sweet, extremely gourmand. Very, very, very pink."
