Frigging Uh-oh
When I first learned about Vio-Volta and read its notes, I thought, "Uh-oh. Amber Xtreme? What is that?" I pictured noxious chemical wolves disguised as natural lambs, assaulting my nasal passages and closing my nose. If this is D.S. & Durga's first full excursion into the aromachemical badlands, I beg them to turn back. Yes, this "fragrance" has a pleasantly bright electric air, like the smell of ozone after lightning strikes, Heedlessly I slathered on the sample that arrived with Radio Bombay, determined to give one of my very favorite perfume houses the benefit of the doubt.

Ohmigod! Why did I do that? As I type, breathing is harder. My nasal passages are tickling. I feel a sneeze coming on and...if I don't wash this off pretty darn quick...a headache.

I HATE Vio-Volta! How have we allowed nature's bounty to be supplanted by these chemicals? Do our noses no longer function, do our lungs no longer want air?

Please D.S. & Durga, whom I adore, whose perfumes are usually celebrations of the natural world, PLEASE save us and yourself. Turn back from the badlands! Paint thinner is not a perfume.

Your admiring customer, owner of your beautiful Boston Ivy, Durga, Foxglove, Radio Bombay, Silent Grove, Sir (which I gave to hubby), El Cosmico (which hubby also bought), and your splendid achievement, White Peacock Lily.

p.s. Two washings and it still lingers. Sneezing has begun. Trying to overwhelm it with an actual perfume Ex Idolo Thirty Three.
