Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. Whoever gave the moniker "candied violets" a bad name? These violets are rewardingly sweet and sucrée, laced with a hay quality that's even more hay-ey than FOIN FRAICHEMENT COUPÉ. Chalky iris, an aromatic wintergreen and a subtle anise give the feeling of oldschool "sherbet" candies, like NECCO wafers. Mercifully, no girlish muguet, modern "berries" or funky earthiness distract from your tête-à-tête with this winsome confectionary. Seated on a dignified English equestrienne's leather, of the Chanel CUIR DE RUSSIE variety. Intimate, toothsome and nostalgic in the very best way.

Gorgeous. Totally not my style but making me rethink the utility of a style that doesn’t encompass this beautiful, unique, dazzling fragrance. Violets don’t have a scent, do they? But they have a color that makes you want to lick them, a texture that makes you want to wear them.... and this scent captures the color and texture of a violet petal closely enough to create a sort of synthesia. Fresh, and again utterly natural smelling, effortless, with a warm smoothness that never slurs or turns to powder. The leather is not smoky or assertive - it just provides depth and richness to the otherwise delicate, but resilient, violet. (slurs was supposed to be sours - but actually works pretty well, too)

Wonderful wonderful discovery. The opening is a bit sharp and smelled a bit like spearmint to me, but that quickly dissipates and rounds out to the most lush leathery violet. If you like Jo Malone's Peony and Blush Suede, this is something you should try. It's like a nice lush leather sofa with wooden arm rests with soft violets pillows around it. It smells like luxury. This is one you have to try on your skin and don't rely on the scent from the sample bottle - they are night and day difference. The longevity on Violettes du Czar surprised me too.

I always knew there had to be a respectable non-Parma violet out there. Turns out that leather is the ticket to making the usual candy-sweet note (I see you, Swan Princess) interesting -- still delicate and pretty but in a regal fashion, with a nice assist during drydown from an unfolding amber I’d be happy to encounter again. A luxurious unisex fragrance in the Jicky style and that much more fascinating for it.

Made for MOI! The initial medicinal blast was a harsh kick to the head. The ghostly violet note floats away from the body and later settles onto the skin, mingling with the antiquated leather note of a menacing-looking doctor's bag. This is not a prissy violet scent, by any means. Dare I say, I loved it so much, I splurged on a full-size bottle after a happy and rather fulfilling sampling; I bought the soap, too! :D
