This is on my skin intense in violets from the first moments until the drydown. Unfortunately, i'm not so enthusiastic of violets and few really win me. I wanted to like this one, but i can't, altough i see that this violet doesn't smell like deodorant. It opens with a violet impression which is both sweet and fresh. Something on it smells like melon to me, so it's like candied violets and fresh melon with citrus essences. The violet loose part of it's sweet floral side and turns into a dry, leafy violet, more masculine and this is the part that i don't like so much. It finishes with the leafy violet impression and a transparent woody luminous impression, not so distant of Eau de Cartier. In fact, this could be seem as a more intense, sweet and floral Eau de Cartier, not bad at all, very decently done. If you like violets, try this one.
