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.
