Bois de Violette


Pin It Fancy

Release Date:  1992
Perfumer:  Christopher Sheldrake
Description:  Bois de Violette is one of several variations of Serge Lutens' most celebrated creation, Feminité du Bois. The fragrance was created by utilizing a technique known as overdosing, in which one of the background components of a fragrance is amplified by greatly increasing the proportion of that material in the subsequent fragrance. In most cases, this results in an interesting variation on an original theme, but in the case of Bois de Violette, the result was far greater than the sum of its parts: shimmering, radiant, and one of the most beautiful fragrances ever created.

Notes:  Cedarwood, violet leaf, candied plum, peach, orange blossom, rose, violet, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, musk, vanilla, honey
