Reviews of April Violets

Powdery parma violet scent. Very light, easy to wear. Sweet but not overpoweringly so. I would have enjoyed this in my younger years.

Violet, jasmine, muguet, vanilla, and musk. Not a huge fan of this combo, but it is nice. I think the musk is a bit overpowering. It drowns the violet. The vanilla is barely there. Not all violet perfumes are the same. In this case, it is definitely true.

I got this because I love the scent of violets. It's not as simple a violet as one would think from it's name. It's layered with neroli I think. But I just can't wear violet! It's OK if I buy violets to spray round the room but on my skin violet develops a horrible odour within a short space of time. It's indescribable and I can only say it's like raw meat. I've tried samples of other violets , Violets de Toulouse, Boise de Violettes which promised much and ended up the same way. What's wrong with me?

This lovely scent indeed smells of fresh violets. Fresher and not as complicated as Violetta di Parma by Borsari which is more sublte, layered as it is with rose, orris and jasmine. Great for after a shower before bed when some other fragrances like Baby Doll are too sweet, the fruity florals are not what you want. Sometimes I spritz the sheets to lie in violent violet. Bliss. Compared to Bulgari's Viole de Jasmine, the scent is clean, strong and lasts. Worth very much more than its modest price tag suggests.

Funny I just love this stuff, sure it smells a bit old fashioned I refuse to say "old lady" as it's so judgemental and is often used in reference to perfumes that are not classified as great, it's not a scent I really wear out of my house but I spritz it on nearly every night after a shower before bed sometimes layering it with other single flower scents, its "clean" smelling and relaxing, and has become like a well worn crisp cotton night shirt I also own ....comforting.

One of my favourite scents as a child- I still have a bottle for nostalgic reasons but do not wear it. I adore violet perfumes but this one is too sweet and simplistic to my adult nose. Beautiful to sniff unexpectedly but not complex enough to keep my senses enthralled.
