This smells like minty and cinnamon-y cedar mixed with violet candies left in the sun to melt. Not terribly unique, not enchanting, and not very pretty. Very synthetic. And you know what's...

Of all the violet fragrances out there, I believe this one is my favorite. While many go sugary sweet or too powdery, Bois de Violette tempers those tendencies, allowing the violet to take center...

I like this fragrance, but do not need to own it. As I have discussed, wood notes go bonkers on my skin and this has cedar notes in it (Well duh, it's BOIS de Violette!). The violet is gorgeous....

This is one of the best of the Bois series, IMO . Bois de Violette is sweet violets and cedar on my skin. However, it isn't sickly sweet. The cedar is only very evident in the opening (the cedar...

Sadly, the base just about takes over any of the scented-violets-emitting-from-the-earth notes I read about and was looking forward to. I was tempted to rate BDV as a 3-lippie, but sometimes I do...

Pure Perfection. A breathtaking combination of feminine and masculine sides of life: tall and strong cedar followed by some tiny fragile violets. I love it to death, and it's one of my 5 all time...
