Violette Fumee EDP Intense
Mona di Orio
Notes of : lavender, bergamot, oakmoss, violet leaves and flowers, turkish rose, vetiver, clary sage, opoponax, myrrh and cashmeran .
This scent was personally created for Jeroen Oude Sogtoen by Mona di Orio whom is remembered with great fondness and love by the perfume community .
In a nutshell-Violette Fumee is a beauty.
It's very strange - all the reviews I have read of Violette Fumee so far have described progressive single notes as the perfume opens and unfolds. Having worn this for a little bit - I get no distinctive notes standing out ( apart from the obvious - violet ) but instead I get a really very blended distinctive aroma.
Papery small violets and light woods . Aromatic , diffusive, elegant.
On my skin, it is not especially sweet nor especially tart in any way .I get no smoke at all .
There is a fragility about this scent - a wispiness and yet also a feeling of quiet strength . Very yin and yang- masculine and feminine. Very balanced.
It's absolutely gorgeous .Violette Fumee just simmers gently on my skin with good longevity and average sillage I guess but the quality is just superb.
Many thanks to Joreon Oude Sogtoen for making Violette Fumee available for us all .
