Created in 1976, Violetta is a dark, dusky and mysterious fragrance suffused with the achingly nostalgic purity of violets. Surprisingly green and sharp to begin with, it becomes lush and velvety as it develops. The sweet violets are complimented by green notes of garden geranium and supported by subtle woods and musks at the base. One of our most surprising fragrances, it captures the elusive violet with incredible clarity and potency.
I fell in love with this scent the moment we met. It is not like any 'violets' scent you have ever smelt before. This is the real thing. It is now my signature perfume and I am never without it.
Would you recommend it? : Yes

This is the most gorgeous fragrance! I love the scent of violets, but there are very few violet perfumes, and this one is so beautiful full-scented. It's a huge shame that Penhaligon's don't make the Violetta body lotion any more - I'd love it if there were plans to bring it back!
