    This is the year of the violet. Misia, Kerbside, now this one.

    Violet and leather was the basis for the wonderful, and now reformulated, Jolie madame. This one is not going to be like it (given also that Duchafour's style is quite different from the fauvism of Germaine Cellier). But one shall smell nonetheless.

    I think they could have selected a better name for their newest fragrance, but.. Oh well.

    Agree the name could have been better construed but the fragrance seems very much sample worthy.

    I love iris-leather scents, but in some ways this sounds like an expensive Grey Flannel. :\

    Not a fan of the name but since Heeley's Cuir Pleine Fleur in 2008 another violet-leather is perhaps long overdue. Created by a talent like Duchafour no less!

    Haha calzim, no doubt lovers of Grey Flannel could be stoked at a high-end violet leaf scent

    Diamondflame, I do love the Heeley--we shall see how this new one stacks up!

    Always enjoyed the cedar violet des sens et bois. Different perfumer of course but I thought the ouds Duchafour made were excellent .

    This one is a winner! I've been using it since Esxence... It's a gorgeus boozy violet from the master of boozy scents Bertrand Duchafour.

    Sounds interesting (except for the worrying mention of an 'ozonic note'). It's going on my to-try list.
