Thisbe gave us the notes already and I will not duplicate that. First and foremost, I am a violet lover and adore it in all of its incarnations. This is not a lady-like violet. This is coarser, fruitier, greener, and ends with candied vanilla-violet dry mid-note. The drydown reminds me a bit of Mure et Musc. It is a loud, boisterous violet. This is not a shy woodland violet, but what you would imagine a big, showy, double-bloom African-violet to smell like. I know they have no scent; I am talking fantasy here. Like most Carons, this has good sillage. The lasting power is good, not great.
