The company says:
Red Queen is a rose fragrance made specially for Michelyn Camen, founder of the fragrance community ÇaFleureBon, for its 9th birthday. It's inspired by Alice's Adventures both in Wonderland, and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll.
Michelyn doesn't particularly like rose fragrances, nor incense, so our challenge was to create one that she could fall in love with. It has many of our our favourite materials including, labdanum and opoponax, raspberry leaf absolute and bergamot. It sits on several mattresses of musks, and calms with wafts of frankincense.

Latest Reviews of Red Queen
On the one hand, it's bright, fresh, and fruity; on the other, it has some other character with incense, pepper, and patchouli. The whole experience leans toward the fresh, fruity, and rosy, though, so it's really an apt wear in many situations. In some ways, Red Queen is the summer to White Queen's winter, though both are really very versatile with respect to season and occasion.
It performs well, too, as with most of Sarah's creations, albeit not quite as strongly as White Queen or some others in the collection, but as one of only a couple of 4160 Tuesdays perfumes that I own and would describe as more warm-weather-friendly, it makes sense that it's not going to be as boastful as, say, Over the Chocolate Shop. Still, I'm very content with the way it projects for the first couple of hours and lasts thereafter.
Red Queen is available at Perfumology at $120 for 50ml, very standard pricing, and I know I'll need a backup bottle as I've already put a significant dent in mine several months into owning it. I'd highly recommend fashioning a sample if you've not yet tried it.
