DSH Perfumes Celadon EDP Perfume Review

Celadon is a velvety smooth violet fragrance with enough greenness to keep it from being too powdery and sweet while remaining soft.

Immediately with Celadon, I get crushed violet leaf. It’s fresh and green without all of the astringent bitterness associated with it. I then get cucumber and green grass. The grass reminds me more of fresh sweet grass than a freshly mowed lawn. Celadon gets smooth. I’d say it was “powdery” but at the same time it isn’t. Like the company’s description, Celdaon is velvety, not powdery. It’s the orris. Lots of orris. Earthy. But, soft thanks to an old-fashioned and pleasant edition of tonka bean and fresh moss. The smell of Celadon reminds me of walking through a spring forest.

Notes include: clover leaf, lime peel, cucumber, green grass, liatrix, orris, orris root, balsam fir, hay, narcissus, tonka bean, and violet leaf.

Give Celadon a try if you like earthy or green violet fragrances or perfumes like aroma M Geisha Violet, Atelier Trefle Pur, Nasomatto Hindu Grass and/or Miller Harris Fleurs de Bois. At this time, I can’t think of a fragrance that is very similar to Celadon. It’s unisex and a must try for those that like grassy, orris-violet or slightly earthy-fresh fragrances. Actually, I would say that Celadon leans more towards the masculine end of the spectrum.

A 1 ounce spray retails for $80. This and other sizes are available at DSH Perfumes website.

Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Truly a velvety violet with green freshness and earthy orris and moss. This is the type of green scent that I feel comfortable wearing.

  1. I liked the description when I read it in Bridgit’s blog, I like it in your interpretation as well. Now I need to finally get to testing DSH’s perfumes. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

    1. I hope you find something you like! I love so many DSH perfumes that it is almost embarrassing. I start rattling them off to people every time they ask for a suggestion.

  2. Your review is so lovely, I’m now wishing I still had my sample 😉

    I’ve always loved with violet fragrances, but then – POOF – out of nowhere, I found myself getting irritated by the note.
    I sent Celadon off to someone who could appreciate it more than I could at the time.

    Then last week I tried Balanciaga Le Dix, and fell in love with violet again! I’ll be ordering from DSH soon, so I should grab another sample of this.

    1. I have had my sample of Celadon for some time. One day it was the best fragrance ever, a few months later it seemed difficult to wear because I thought it was a better masculine. My final opinion is that it is very well done. This isn’t some girly sweet violet that goes out of its way to be pretty and dainty. This is a very interesting violet. And it really does remind me of lush green forests and little flowers on the forest floor. It’s another good one by DSH.
