Violette in Love


The arrival of spring and the new garden is an important event in my life every year. I love the anticipation, the planning, the great relief of getting outside, and I love the colours, the sounds of the birds, the smells – always the smells….wet dirt, compost, mulch, twigs, flagstone, green buds, new blooms. Like violets. Violets bloom in late April and May in Toronto, depending on the weather, and they’re one of my favourites.
Violette in Love, a limited edition launched in 2009 by Patricia de Nicolaï, takes the green and purple of the violet and mixes in other colours, making the palette much brighter and vibrant – yellow citrus, pink pepper, red raspberry, in the top notes, red rose and pale iris are add to the violet heart notes, and black pepper, coriander and musk add spice and fullness to the base. 
I’ll wear Violette in Love when I want to feel younger, hip, and slightly flirty.
Notes: lemon, pink pepper, raspberry, blackcurrant, rose, violet-iris accord, coriander, black pepper and musk.
