    Default Violet Blonde and L'heure Bleue

    Does anyone else find Violet Blonde to be almost a modern L'heure Bleue?

    They both have violet, rose, jasmine, iris and musk.

    I think L'heure bleue was much more complex, powdery, and with a gourmand note all of its own. Violet blonde seems to me a more straightforward violet-floral. But reportedly HB has been reformulated (I have not smelled), so it might well be the case for the current version.

    I find the two miles apart from each other.

    Not at all, never would associate them in a million years. I do love them both though.

    No, I don't find the connection to L'Heure Bleu, but I do see that Violet Blonde could be a descendant cousin of Apres L'Ondee, with it's violet mid-notes and sunnier disposition than LB.

    No, nothing alike. For me L'Heure is rich in heliotrope almost narcotic like.
    Violet Blonde which I do own is violets and wood.

    Hmm, maybe it's just my skin then. On me they smell remarkably alike, with VB being more fresh with much less powder.
