Interesting Facts

The fragrance was launched in 2017 as part of the "La Collection Privée" series by Caron. On the basis of the information available, it is not possible for us to clearly prove whether it is just a re-release of the fragrance or an actual adjustment of the formula by the house perfumer at the time, William Fraysse.

Halls of mirrors, big as a heart.
Like when the
for two hours
approaching thunderstorms
with a slight,
velvet-warm breeze
just barely
would have moved
and the coloration
of heaven
from the lead grey
slides over again
into a gentle
cosmeen -
scabioses -
lilac -
iris -
violet -
violet pale coloured

It's this staining,
that your soul
Look, the sun is laughing;
also a little gold,
so on the edge.

The flashes save on,
and the thunder is silent.

Further over,
beyond the pastel woods,
a harp sounds
You turn
about yourself
and at this very moment, you're
more understood
than in all
February months
of your life.

This beauty
is almost impossible to name.
It echoes in you
like mother of pearl,
in the wide spaces
of an airy castle
in the evening twilight hours
of the upbeat dance.

Halls of mirrors,
big as a heart,
Air painting
and the greeting
of the rainbow.

This jubilation is nothing
to add.

That's how
further up,
you who are unbiased
and free.

The ones you childlike
Be of good cheer
and get yourselves knocked over
of an elegance
and a sigh
Your wages
is a basket
full mildness


The floweriness and freshness ,
the late, tender raspberry,
the amethyst coloured elegance,
the charming old-fashioned,
the powdery...
all this is accompanied by
the little animal,
which all the time
is in on it.
Racy, refined and romantic

A fragrance like a love letter,
written on thinnest paper,
so that the
seven thousand
two hundred
all have space as well.

I walked in the woods, I saw a flower standing in the shade
I feel reminded of Goethe's poem by the precious violet. A violet found in the forest, dug up with all its roots and replanted in the garden.
In Goethe's time, there were probably more violets in the forest, when you were still allowed to do that.

I have this association on the one hand because Caron's violet reminds me of a real fragrant violet in the garden. Years ago, I ordered a selection of three varieties that do not propagate, but come back every year and bravely stand up to the competition in the bed.
On the other hand, I find "Violette Précieuse" slightly spicy, which makes me think of forest. But so that no misconceptions arise: The perfume smells only of violets and not of forest
In fact, even without knowing the scents, I smell nothing but violets and musk.
Since there is no pyramid at Parfumo yet, here is the one from ALzD:

Top note: violet and iris
Heart note: musk and lily of the valley
Base note: sandalwood and raspberry

With this knowledge I say to myself:
Yeah, the creamy stuff must come from the iris,
the serious, unsweetened lily of the valley.
And now I also perceive the delicate touch of raspberry, it supports the authenticity of the violet fragrance. There's no sandalwood
I think this violet soliflor is a complete success. Nothing reminds me of violet pastilles. The precious violet is also the complete contrast to the power of Insolence. Instead, Caron's violet has much elegance and little sweetness. This makes it look fresh and natural.

Among the other fragrances from the Collection Privée that I know of, "Violette Précieuse" has an exceptional position because it is actually rather reserved. This also goes very well with a violet for me.

Nevertheless, the scent lasts for more than 6 hours and is very clearly perceptible in the first few hours. For me Caron's precious violet makes the blue ribbon of spring flutter very skilfully.
