I love chocolate violet creams and I was kind of hoping that this would smell a bit like those so, initially, I was a little disappointed when it didn't. This is not the sweet confectioner's violet - no Parma violets here but what we do have is something rather more interesting. This perfume seems to represent the woodland floor where the violets grow - there's a fresh, mossy green-ness going on and the violet scent itself is delicate, ethereal - it comes and goes like the scent of the flower itself. Its all rather clever. The only downside is that it didn't last long on me - two to three hours at most.
I found it quite wearable and I think I could wear it to work. I liked it very much.
Pros: Interesting take on violet
Cons: Didn't last long on me
