The delicate purple and white flower known as violet grows in the Mediterranean and Asia Minor.
This lilac beauty is known for its wide range of therapeutic properties including helping with colds, asthma, rheumatism and infections. Violets have also played a role in history. A stunning violet was the symbol of ancient Athens and Nopolean Bonaparte’s signature flower.
Violet flowers have a soft woody floral fragrance with a slight powdery aroma. Contrastingly, the leaves of the violet lend a freshly cut grass freshness to fragrances. During the 19th century, violet based fragrances were immensely popular. In 1893, Kruger and Tiemann discovered ionones found in the violet flower. Ionones enable the production of a synthetic violet scent identical to the expensive and precious natural oil.
Euphoria by Calvin Klein is a sensual, yet sophisticated scent and many women name this fragrance as their signature fragrance. Euphoria’s violet note gives the blend a woody floral sweetness, beautifully complimented by a creamy vanilla base that will take you to new heights.
Burberry Sport for Men is designed for an energetic, motivated, successful and fashionable man. He is inspired, active and keen to impress. Violet leaves lend this fragrance a sliced cucumber freshness.
The violet flower is more than just a pretty face. Its chameleon-like versatility makes it an essential note in the fragrance universe.
