Let There Be Violets!!!
Aesthetically related to BVLGARI POUR FEMME, Histoires de Parfums BLANC VIOLETTE ups the violet ante, boasting a triple dose of one of my favorite floral notes. Yes, violets, violets, and more violets are found in the top notes, the heart, and the base notes of this scrumptious composition (according to the house's literature...) This means, of course, that I, a certified violet 'ho', cannot really claim to offer anything even approaching an objective review of this perfume. It's beautiful, it's splendid, and full-bottle worthy for any lover of violets!

In a side-by-side comparison with BVLGARI POUR FEMME, I confirmed my initial sense that the compositions are similar. Basically, if you replaced the rose and other non-iris, non-violet notes with violet, then you'd have a gorgeous perfume closely related to BLANC VIOLETTE. The main distinction I see is that rice and musk notes substitute for the benzoin of the Bvlgari, but the overall effect is very similar. Very beautiful, very glamorous, very appealing. The longevity and sillage of this creation are both excellent, and I'd love to have a bottle of this!

Postscript: I have zero idea why “professional perfume reviewer,” as TS refers to herself in The Holey[sic] Book (believe it or not, in her review of Ellie parfum) labels this beauty “harsh violet”. Aucune idée. Keine Ahnung. Ninguna idea. Another great example of why to me it's really “The Antiguide”...
