Violet Blonde is the essence of glamour. It is a formal, polished fragrance that draws you in closer and closer, like a beautifully dressed woman whose presence charms, then fascinates, and ultimately seduces you.
- Top Notes: Violet Blonde opens with a sparkling expression of glamour. Violet leaf, an ingredient that is intimately connected with the land and history of Southern France and Northern Italy, is supported by Italian mandarin and baie rose to create a green-citrus first impression. Violet leaf's open, bright character has a floral delicacy and a tremendous diffusive effect.
- Middle Notes: Then, two extremely valuable forms of tuscan orris, which is aged and distilled in a years-long process in the hills of Florence and Siena, are introduced. Rarely used in modern perfumery due to the cost and complexity of attaining it, natural orris is luxury incarnate: a captivating note of silvery-violet elegance with a grounding, earthy pull and a voluminous sensuality. It infuses cool perfection and starlit sensuality to the Violet story, while a third prestige note of jasmine sambac adds an entrancing, floral support.
- Base Notes: A medley of creamy woods, including benzoin, cedarwood orpur, and haitian vetiver wraps this elegant heart in skin-warming softness. Musk and soft suede impart a sensational texture and depth to the drydown. This sumptuous and soft base allows the violet-orris relationship to deepen and evolve as the fragrance is worn. This base also gives Violet Blonde its delicious comfort.
