La Violette by Annick Goutal
Notes: Violet, violet leaf, rose
I hadn't worn a violet scent in awhile, so I wanted to wear this one today! It's really lovely and gentle. It's a soft blend of sweet, candied violets and a bit of powdery rose. It doesn't last ages and it's not terribly strong, it's just a nice little scent. Vaguely aquatic and green from the violet leaf but all in all it's just a simple violet scent with a bit of rose for some depth. If you like violets - which I definitely do - this is a pretty safe bet. And I say this as someone who doesn't typically like rose. The rose adds texture, softness and powder but there's not strong rose scent. Definitely no sharpness or bitterness in this scent. I don't wear this one often, but I am glad to have it.
