On the 7th day of Violet perfume….
God created Bois de Violette. Serge, Sheldrake, God, whatever — God made them, so he gets credit, mostly because it is just heavenly. This is violet perfection, created by Christopher Sheldrake.
Cedar, violet leaves and violet flowers, it is a sparkly violet confection with that Cedar engine powering its composition. It starts out a little sweet, but on me it immediately goes to that wonderful deep woody violet that feels like you have just laid down in a violet patch in the middle of the woods in your best dream.
My all-time favorite violet. The only thing that compares for me, but is different because of the rest of its notes and it doesn’t concentrate quite so much on the violet, is Ormonde Woman.
