    Blanc Violette by Histoires de Parfums

    This violet has the dubious distinction of being soft and shrill at the same time. All things violetty have been thrown at this perfume – including the green of its leaves (supported by a touch of anise) – but to little avail. There is a roughness to the composition which is surely unintentional, making it more suited to a product like washing up liquid. It’s powdery like a violet scent should be, but somewhat lumpy about it.
