The violet was picked...
I have loved the Lehmann violet for many years and have commented on it in 2013 under the Tonis fragrance 37, because at that time this entry did not yet exist. My bottle is running out and I have ordered a new one from Lehmann. The shipment arrived today. And I'm really upset. I was expecting a reformulation because of oakmoss. But not with such a different scent. The new violet is only sweet, flowery and powdery. The liquorice note of violet pastilles can still be sensed in the middle. But that's all there is to it. The unconventional, dark green, strong note, which reminds me of essential oil from the violet leaf and which made up the fragrance, is completely gone. The strong top note is missing. The green bed for the violet has disappeared. I hardly smell the woody base any more, the scent is now sweet and powdery. I only smell sweet flower powder, which also has its quality, but does not suit me very well. Before I smelled violets in green moss in the forest, now only a picked flower in the vase. So sad...
