Essence D'Violet instead
This is a flanker that reminds a lot of the original one.

The main difference is a orange note that was added - a shy orange note that's very weak by the way. The violet is still the main player.

It's a bit powdery in the drydown.

Lasting power, sillage and projecion are low-medium.

Good choice for summer, but i'd stay with the original one.

Orange-scented Violet Leaf
I arrived fashionably late to the violet leaf party, but Cartier is making it possible to catch up quickly. EAU DE CARTIER ESSENCE D'ORANGE is a flanker of the original violet leaf eau, and also of the CONCENTREE, which I own. I think that if one removed above half of the violet leaf from the CONCENTREE and mixed in some orange, this would be the result.

It's nice, if you like violet leaf and are looking for variations on that theme. So, yes, this really is a flanker which makes sense as a flanker. As an orange eau, ESSENCE D'ORANGE has some stiff competition (chez Hermès and Bond no 9) and must also surmount the preconceptions set up by those much stronger and declarative orange compositions.

EAU DE CARTIER ESSENCE D'ORANGE is much closer to another light orange scent I recently tried, The Different Company SIENNE D'ORANGE. Both of these creations may seem orange deficient next to the Hermès ORANGES VERTES or LITTLE ITALY. They are also neither very citrusy nor very bracing and aromatic.

I appear to be developing an addiction to violet leaf, so although I was initially disappointed by this flanker, having myself found it to be too light on the orange and too heavy on the violet leaf, I have to admit that I enjoy wearing it! The bottle design is also beautiful--the same as the others.
