Rock'n Roll Elf Scent
Vivacious opens with a dive into freshly cut green hay.
You can literally hear them giggling, the wild little elves and the goblins.
Make a mess of everything and you only notice them out of the corner of your eye.
Evening sun beams through the boards of the wooden hutch, bathing everything in magical warm golden light, in which the dust motes dance, stirred up by the happy little magical creatures playing frolicsomely and throwing little flowers at each other.

Soundtrack to this high-spirited frolic is the old Queen song...
... Fairy dandy tickling the fancy of his lady friend....
Wild and boisterous, joyous, magical and, above all, naughty!
I can literally see them chasing through the meadows, singing, dancing in a roundelay, tussling, making mischief, and then plopping down in the hay in the old barn, tickled and giggling.
Wrapped in a soft, lumpy amber snuggle blanket, they eventually come to rest with happy smiles.

The fragrance exudes this joie de vivre. And although I have with the complexity of clove so my issue and violet fragrances actually want to find boring, I can not help but be drawn into the confetti-joyful rush. The combination of the bergamot with the florals and the soft amber base takes away the tuffy powderiness of the violet, and the violet disarms the clove and its quibbles.

What a quere fellow.
__________________________________________________________
Hiram Green's Vivacious actually refers to the Victorians' love of violets, jazzed up into a cheerful 21st-century good-time scent.
I've got sassy fairies and perky pixies twirling exuberantly to The Fairy Feller's Masterstroke. Times a different fairy scent, only very discreetly powdery, rather rock'n roll. I like very much.

(with dear thanks to Violett)

Purple Gingerbread Leprechaun
Vivacious, which means "full of life, upbeat, fun-loving". So the fragrance should awaken fun and joy and / or express. Well. Vivacious is a violet fragrance .And if the scent of this small purple-blue flower something normally does not radiate , then that is pure joie de vivre.
Enchantingly beautiful they smell admittedly, the small violets. However, their fragrance is always a certain melancholy, coolness and darkness. The other fragrance aspect of the violet in the perfume is the very delicate, silvery-cool-sweet, girlish violet powder. The little flower rarely smiles in olfactory terms, in fact sometimes looks directly venomous ! For a long time, I've tended to avoid this little flower, as far as perfume is concerned. But now that I've spontaneously christened myself "Violet" on "Parfumo" for lack of a better idea, it's only right to get to grips with my new namesakes a little more intensively. Even if they are a bit difficult.
So how has Hiram Green, the perfumer with Canadian roots, it for unknown reasons in the Dutch Gouda (otherwise rather known for cheese ;-)) has taken up the challenge to give the purple problem child positive charisma ? He gives him spicy reinforcement from the garden, in the form of clove. This smells, however, as if it came directly from the Moluccas ( Spice Islands) .Will mean, this garden carnation smells quite clearly like a clove. I smell this one pretty strong at first. Together with a good shot of bergamot, it's almost a bit penetrating at the beginning. But soon it unfolds with its unmistakably enchanting, serious, aromatic, gingerbread-spiced aroma. Et Voilà ! While violet usually tends to spoil the scent mood, here it stays artful, taking away the severity of the carnation and giving it more florality and depth. Ultimately, this melange creates a new floral scent that I haven't smelled like this before. Extremely cheerful it is not. (But it's fine.;-)). Rather pleasant, serious, spicy. And he has something radiant .
The scent plays on a slightly sweet velvety base. Not the usual powdered sugar amber, thank you Mr.Green ! It smells of amber and a bit of honey, possibly vanilla too.
All muted, pleasantly warm, full and soft. So similar I already know it from Voyage, another perfume by Hiram Green (now discontinued )
A special, idiosyncratic, original fragrance. It is warming and radiant, yet has depth. From the Sillage her it is very moderate and on the skin still very long, (after about 8 hours still) perceptible.
Despite all the positive things that can be said about Vivacious, I am missing something. I know, I behave here perhaps like the famous" national coach on the couch ", but I have the feeling, would be this perfume still a little tick more sophisticated, it could have been in my nose a much more magnificent, really noble fragrance. As it is, it feels somewhere between "rough-hewn, simple and natural" and "radiant and classy". As an image, perhaps a compartment of the Trans-Siberian railway fits for me. Old-fashioned, perhaps a little kitschy, nobly decorated, partly painted gold. But no matter how chic it looks, it remains a train journey with the corresponding discomforts, but also the adventure that a journey brings.
So,after I digress now already to Siberia, is now but also really good ! my personal conclusion : A violet does it good if you spice it. For in this fragrance at least, I like the purple namesake leprechaun times quite gladly.

Violet & Carnation over a creamy ambery iris
Nice flowery perfume. The notes are very representativa: Violet, Carnation and iris... This is vivacious! Very bright fragance subtle and elegant. The smell is very natural. The only issue i find maybe is the performance since It is not very good. It lasts for hours but with a very moderate/soft projection. The dry down has for me some cola drink vine. I think vivacious is a fantástico fragance for daytime use in spring and fall. Unisex but leaning maybe a bit more the femenine side fue to the softness It has...

Vivacious (NKNN)
• HIRAM GREEN VIVALICIOUS •

What's a new release that you're excited for? If you've been following my journey, you'll know that I love what Hiram Green is doing and I love most of his fragrances. Now Vivalicous is one that I honestly had concerns for (as far as my personal taste goes), because I love florals, but not often green and/or indolic ones and this seemed to go in that direction. Dilettante and Moon Bloom from the house are hard to wear for me, but I'm glad to say that Vicalicious was a pleasant surprise and I love it.

So it sounds like a Destiny's Child song, but it smells like violet, or at least, that's the note that Vivalicious is built around. If that would be all to it, I probably wouldn't love it. As with all of Hiram's works, it's all natural and that's also how it smells. The violet is slightly bitter and sharp, almost spicey for a moment (it also has carnation, which I think can get quite spicey), but turns soft and powdery. It's a bright opening, with some bergamot and I get a hint of an orange-y scent. What absolutely steals the show for me is the orris butter. Despite the powdery texture that I also get, it's such a smooth fragrance. Combined with an amber accord, it has a warmer, quite sweet base. It's almost a honey-like sweetness (a more conventional synthetic honey, rather than the honey that is used in Slowdive). To my nose the overall composition has a sweet hay-like or even woody scent. It's a bit grassy, ever so slightly vegetal, but not nearly as green or indolic as either Dilettante or Moon Bloom. The sort of gold color of the juice represents the scent well for me.

Powdery Violet & Carnation over a creamy and ambery iris. The drydown has for me some cola drink vibe. Very natural. Perfect spring scent

A slightly spicy, yet very fresh and clean powdery-floral Mid season fragrance, balanced by a gentle earthy-resinous base. More feminine.
