L’Artisan Parfumeur Verte Violette EDT Perfume Review

L'Artisan Parfumeur Verte Violette EDT

Purple Flowers Week – 2012

“Purple” florals are my favorite florals in perfume. Give me violet, hyacinth, lilac, heliotrope or iris and I should be happy. This week on EauMG, I’m focusing on purple flowers for spring. I think L’Artisan Parfumeur Verte Violette is one of the best fresh, green violets on the market. However, it doesn’t last on me. I want to have a conversation with Verte Violette but all she wants to give me is a salutation.

Verte Violette is a green violet. It opens up with fresh violet leaves and carrot greens with a fresh heliotrope. When I sniff Verte Violette, I feel like I’m close to the garden floor. Since bunnies love to eat our violas, violets and strawberries (all share the same bed in a shady spot), every time I sniff Verte Violette, I think of cute, wild baby bunnies in spring. The scent gets greener in the heart. It becomes a cool, green violet-rose.

My only problem, which is a big problem, with Verte Violette is that it lasts for a very short time on my skin. My skin eats it up like baby bunnies eat up newly bloomed violets. It’s frustrating.

Notes listed include violet leaves, raspberry leaves, rose, heliotrope, cedar, iris and white musk. PERFUMER – Anne Flipo

Projection of this scent is average. Longevity is below average. I’m lucky to get an hour of wear out of this. In the winter, I can get about an hour and a half.

A 3.4 oz EDT of Verte Violette retails for $145 at MiN NY and Harrods (UK).

Victoria’s Final EauPINION - A green violet just like the name implies. I enjoy this fragrance but I would never buy it because of the longevity issues. Like I said, I want a conversation with Verte Violette, not a salutation.
