Beautiful bottle and packaging but I find the fragrance way too sweet, even for a violet. I get the mandarin/citrus topnote but there is also a strong whiff of ethyl maltol which skirts Angel territory, imo a far too often plundered field. The drydown is violet and sandalwood which berdoues reckon makes for arridity - not for me, far too sugary. If you mourn the demise of Angel La Violette then there is a good chance you will like this one. I like my violets straight up and sugar free. Nice staying power and good bang for your buck though.
