La Violette Perfume by Annick Goutal, La Violette is a beautiful homage to the delicate violet flower. The perfume, released in 2001, makes lovely use of natural ingredients that let the violet shine.
The youthful, flirty flower is the top note and is freshened with aromatic green notes. Violet leaf gives off the clean, herbaceous scent of a newly mowed lawn. Turkish rose adds a fullness, intoxicating the senses with its rich aroma and exotic hint of spicy clove. Youthful and sweet, the perfume is the perfect accompaniment for a romantic date.
Model and pianist Annick Goutal discovered her passion for fragrance while collaborating with designers on the development of a facial cream. She opened a boutique and introduced a collection of scents in the early 1980s. Today, the company is run by her daughter, Camille, and perfumer Isabelle Doyen. The brand has released dozens of fragrances since its founding. Each fragrance is meant to elicit memories and emotions.
