06 November 2009 - 07:32 AMall the notes in this sounded so great except for the coconut, which is something i can never deal with. i eventually got an imp from a swap gave it a try. i was hoping for the best and really wanted to like this one, but once i opened the imp i got a blast of coconut.. suntan lotion super sweet coconut. i couldn't bring myself to even dab it on to see what would happen. coconut is the one smell i just can't do (that and nag champa).
14 May 2008 - 05:26 AMBruised Violet Compound turned out just as I feared it would.. it was all patchouli with no violet at all.. it was kinda sweet ..but still patchouli which i hate.
Violet Ray is a lot like Faith but with more depth, still very soft. it's hard for me to pick out the different notes at first but it smells exactly like something from my childhood that I haven't figured out yet. hrmm.. the mint is barely noticeable, just enough to make it more interesting and the sandalwood makes it a bit earthy. i'm really glad this works better on me than Ultraviolet did.. the mint scared me a little. uh oh. i think skunk smell from outside is invading my room.. kinda ruins the smelling process. .. or at least I hope thats skunk and Violet Ray turning on me.
25 April 2008 - 03:26 AMI can't wait for Bruised Violet Compound and Violet Ray! I have imps of both on order.
is patchouli root similar to regular patchouli (leaf?). it's scaring me away from Bruised Violet Compound a little bit.. but the red currant and spanish moss sounds nice.
and i'm hoping that Violet Ray doesn't end up like Ultraviolet with the mint. ultraviolet was instant headache on me.
20 April 2008 - 06:15 AMi couldn't smell much in the bottle so I just slathered this on my wrists. took a few minutes for anything to surface but now im smelling it. a base of slightly sweet vanilla and amber which is getting stronger by the minute. i can also smell a little bit of honeysuckle and violet popping out here and there. i don't smell any lily which is great for me, but i think im getting a bit of a headache which usually happens with it. after a few more minutes the rose is coming out (but not too sharp thankfully) and the jasmine is just barely noticeable underneath. still no lily, honeysuckle is getting stronger. awesome. i'm not a HUGE fan of florals but i'm warming up to them more because of blends like this. this one really morphs a lot and gets stronger over time, really cool. it doesn't have a very strong throw but this is wonderful and very wearable, glad i have a whole big bottle of it.
17 April 2008 - 08:35 AMi recently discovered my love for violets because of a frimp of Sybaris. its so sweet and rich and the clove never gets too spicey. since then ive been on the hunt for more violets and found a couple...
Ultraviolet - eucalyptus and mint made this too strong and headachey.
Queen Gertrude - the wisteria in combination with violet is really nice, neither get too strong, just a soft sweet purple floral. a bit old lady-ish.. but thats okay with me.
Faith - soft lightly sweet violet. maybe a little too light, but very pretty.
Morgause - i get a little violet, but this is more incense, white floral with some fruits.
Antique Lace - violet isn't listed, but i definitely smell them. its like a sweeter more feminine version of Dorian with a good amount of violets! love it!
I'm really wanting to try the Raven, Le Serpent Qui Danse, Marie, Nocturne, Ephemera and Melisande the Puppet Mistress and Purple Phoenix and the Darkling Thrush.
