Right-o, thekelleybelle, this is a dirty, animalic violet. I don't get any sense of wetness that would call up the Dead Marshes, but if we are going for LotR's reference, I'd say Frodo and Sam resting on the rock outside of Mount Doom, the fumes of a molten ring of power still clinging, old sweat washed off by new, and contrasting with their natural hobbit freshness.

There's a great deal of settling down in the first 30-45 minutes, and by an hour and half the startle factor recedes to reveal a warm and comforting base--Aha, the eagles are here.

I call it absolutely masculine, too sexy for church, and I have a specific image of the wearer-- late spring, suited up for the office, but reminding everyone there's muscle under that gabardine. I give a wholehearted thumbs up.

The first spritz of Vio-Volta brought with it the acrid smell of a green weed coated with Roundup right after it's been pulled from the soil. Not fresh garden soil, though, more like a dank, overly moist soil infected with bacteria. The dry down smells like what Frodo probably smelled like after he fell into the Dead Marshes, but after his clothes dried and stiffened.

Way too dirty for my taste but could work for either gender if this is your kind of thing.

EDIT: After testing Mona di Oro's Violette Fumée, I think Vio Volta is basically a rancid, almost metallic VF. Worth trying if you appreciate a challenge, but you've been warned!
