    Default Anyone know JC Brosseau's Violette-Menthe?

    Here are the notes from OsMoz:

    Top note: Bergamot, Wild Black Currant, Peppermint, Mint Leaves, Melon

    Middle note: Parma Violet, Peony, May Blossom, White Flowers, Rose

    Base note: Sandalwood, Oak, Sweet Notes, Musk

    It comes in the Ombre Rose frosted octagonal bottle but with a purple cap. I'm so curious about this one. I'd love to hear from someone who has experienced it - good, bad or indifferent. Thanks! :-)

    I ordered a sample from Ausliebezumduft (First-in-Fragrance) of this one, since I love Ombre Rose, but I must say I was very disappointed. To my nose it was such a cold, strange scent. I could smell violet in the top notes, but as soon as they were gone, all I could smell was a greenish mix, dominated by pepper mint. Maybe others would experience it totally different, but I recommend you to send for a sample, before you go for a whole bottle...

    All those notes make it sound VERY nice for hot, humid summer days! Now if summer would just come to New England, I'll have an excuse to try it.

    I've had this thing for violets lately - I'm craving them, and I love mint. I thought this one sounded nice for summer too. :-)
