It's the first and so far only time I can really appreciate violets (in a dark and dusty kind here).
I agree with this.
Only i would also suggest that you try most of the many violet scents available and then choose what you liked best. Violet is one of the notes that evoke that feeling of melancholy to many people.
The feeling could also be created by smelling a scent from your personal past, something that your mother wore for example, that would make a close connection to the past.Balenciaga's Le Dix
(in any concentration) is of course a great scent, and a good alternative to search for that feeling, i also think Guerlain's Parure
evokes that as well.
