A Violet Concerto
A sample came in the mail today and I opened it not really expecting much, but this turns out to be a dreamily heady floral. Blackberry and orange create a fresh, controlled, but inviting top note, rousing curiosity. Then all at once the alluring heart florals sing like mezzo violins and then the musk base throbs and with the raspberry a triangle pings. What a surprise to find a near concerto in this fragrance's simple notes, but that's the rub, isn't it? Common notes that anyone might play, in the hands of a maestro become song. Bravo to Fragonard for a spring/summer fragrance that can hold its own in the cold. No wish list for this, straight to FB for me.
