More like Voile de Paint Thinner, on the opening salvo.

Turns into Voile de Pulp Truck, complete with diesel fumes and wet sawdust.

Settles into something that smells like khus khus.

Nary a whiff of violet in this thing.

....commences to scrub.......

I finished up a 5ml travel size of this perfume some time ago, but found that I still had a sample lurking in my decant collection.

I love violet perfumes. From the candy-sweet versions to the powdery, cosmetic-type scents to those which are fresh and green. Give me all the violets!

Voile de Violette is quite different from other violet scents I've tried. There's …

A soft, pretty violet with just a bit of greenness. There might be a touch of cedar and other flowers, but all I smell is violets. I don't find it too sweet, and I have a strong distaste for sweet perfumes. For example, I find Opal, another perfume from this brand, to be far too sweet for me. It's a very charming soliflore, and I can't stop sniffing when I have it on.

Voile de Violette is a light, soft violet. There seems to be some other flower with it, a touch of lily perhaps? or the merest whisper of a wood or incense? The drydown is a clean musky violet

Ooooh, the drydown.

A softer, almost translucent take on violet, somewhat reminiscent of Guerlain's Meteorites (but w/o the powder). This one has an almost watery quality to it - it's almost like smelling water scented with violet petals. It's very fleeting but also it's pretty when you can still smell it. Lasting power is below average. Notes: violet/iris accord, musk, sandalwood, ambrette seed …Read more
