On the Second day of Violet perfume, it is Caron Violette Precieuse.
Not sure what that means exactly, a Precise Violet? Okay. Smelling Caron Violette Precieuse in the sample vial, I have been beyond apprehensive. It smells like violet gym socks. But with Caron, I know to never judge them in the bottle. True to Caron, this is what happened as well. Violet gym socks turned to…
Velvet Violet. Sweet, but not overly so, woody, a little green. Is this the perfect Violet? If not, it’s darn close to it. Amazing perfection, this is how I think of violets, little perfect blossoms that are shy, but seductive and heart-breaking in their beauty.
So what’s with Caron Violette Precieuse being discontinued? How can that be? Now I have to go hunt down a few bottles! Samples of Caron Violette Precieuse is available at Surrender to Chance.
It IS the perfect violet!
March, I think it has more, but in that deeper Caron way. Aimez Moi seems lighter and sweeter. Not sure that makes sense even to me.
They discontinued it, Margi? Have you checked ebay to stock up or longlostperfumes.com (they do dupes of things that are discontinued), or other dupe places? If you can’t find it, we’ll just have to find you a new one in time for the baby!
One of my pet peeves. I’ll find a scent I absolutely adore (and it’s always one that I ADORE) and it will be discontinued.
Yves Saint Laurent did that to me with “Champagne.” I have to be damned careful with scents because my chemistry will sweeten one to the point of nausea. I’m okay if I stick to light orientals or woodsy scents — I’ll sweeten those up naturally. Champagne was awesome. Not a sweet note anywhere. It would mellow down to a powdery softness on me and I looooooved it!
Well, this seems to be one of those love it or hate it frags… BTW I’m guessing Precieuse means precious, but what do I know? How would you compare it to Aimez Moi? More or less of the Caron base?
