Here's what other people are saying about De Profundis...
Yea it's deep. No emotional connection here, but there's some really compelling liquid dark notes in this. I would not describe it as "wonderfully bright," on me it was more syrupy. Like cough syrup but not awful. Also in the sample it's a fun purple color, too bad the bottle looks opaque.

Definitely lives up to the description. Very fresh and green but there is an unmistakable violet note. Unfortunately is just a tad soapy on me. I'd likely prefer this scent on a man but there's nothing that says this can't be unisex.

Love that fresh green hit, then the caress of beautiful soft notes. Really like this one, a lot! Almost a sexy scent. On me, it left town rather quickly, however.

Writing a review based purely on emotional merit is a risky venture, I'm aware; what touches me might repulse the next person. But I truly can't think of a better way to open this review: De Profundis remains the only fragrance I've encountered that has ever moved me to tears. Such a heartbreaking, tender arrangement of chrysanthemum and violet kept grounded by a plush swell of green notes and incense. In the hands of a lesser perfumer, this might have been as stodgy and depressing as a funeral parlor but I must tip my hat to whoever kept this scent planted firmly in the realm of ethereal melancholy. Deep, moving, introspective. Not exactly a going-out scent, that is. Save this for a quiet, misty day. You might just hear the angels sing...
