Soft violet complemented by iris, cedar, vetiver, violet leaf, a touch of rose, myrrh, and tonka bean. Not a traditional sweet and powdery violet, but an unconventional violet fragrance with fresh aspects from the green violet leaf and woodsy additions from the cedar, vetiver, and tonka.

Perfumer's Comments: One of my earliest perfumes as a girl was a violet soliflore housed in a pretty little ceramic bottle hand-painted with violets. It was an intense violet scent with a hint of green. I'd often remove the stopper, perched above a pretty lavender satin ribbon, just to sniff the contents. Now and then I'd dab it on my hand and sniff on and off for hours. I didn't grow scented violets until many years later (I had only seen the scentless varieties when I was young), but I loved my early bottled introduction to violet fragrance. I wanted Voile de Violette to be a soft violet with a touch of green, similar to my memory of that long-ago scent but softened with gentle woods.
