Januaryâ€™s Olfactif collection brought Violette Fumee, from Mona di Orioâ€™s Les Nombres Dâ€™Or collection. This is a scent that reminds me of a breath of fresh spring air. Considering the hellish winter weâ€™ve had, it couldnâ€™t have come at a better time!
Violette Fumee opens with a fresh green violet and citrus scent. It feels smooth and relaxing, like sunshine on an early spring day. The dry down brings a warmth and sweetness, less green, and with a whisper of lemon. My favorite way to wear this lovely scent is just a very light spritz on my wrist. Iâ€™ve found a full spray or two a bit overwhelming with violet, though I do get a much longer lasting time. A pretty scent, but with the high price tag, Iâ€™ll just be savoring my sample vial from Olfactif!
Have you tried Violet Fumee? Are there any scents you are loving for spring?
