On the 4th day of Violet perfume…
I know, I know, two today, but I missed on the 25th, so I need to catch up.
Penhaligon’s Violette is the tester on the other arm (this makes today very interesting because I’ve spread Fumerie Turque all over everywhere else but these two arms).
This one goes on greener smelling, not particularly sweet, but not dry either. Not very complex in the drydown, but it stays very nice, a green, creamy violet. It doesn’t appear to be staying with me very long. Poor shy violets want to poke their heads back under their arms.
That’s why Bois des Violette is the Mother Ship of violets, it goes on big and stays big. More on that later.
