I’ve been really impressed with the indie brand, House of Cherry Bomb. You guys already know this. I went on and on about this brand in my review of Tobacco Cognac, a musky tobacco fragrance.
Violet Green Tea Honeysuckle (let’s abbreviate it as VGTH) opens as a green grass and cool violets. With wear the violets get more tangy, like unripe raspberries. This bitter fruitiness mingles with a sheer, airy honeysuckle. It wears exactly as the name implies – violets and honeysuckles. VGTH dries down to powdery woods which reminds me of a vintage dressing table – violet powder and lacquered woods.
Notes listed include green tea, violet, honeysuckle, lily of the valley and woody notes. Launched in 2014. PERFUMERS – Alexis Karl and Maria McElroy
Give VGTH a try if you like honeysuckle scents or tea florals. Or if you like perfumes like aroma M Geisha Violet, L’Artisan Verte Violette, Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl, Lili Bermuda Petals and/or Marc Jacobs Blush. I’ve really enjoyed wearing this one in the warmer weather.
Projection and longevity are below average for an EDP. I think it wears more like an EDT.
The 1 oz retails for $55 at House of Cherry Bomb. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Cool violets and honeysuckle. Another great perfume from House of Cherry Bomb!
