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.
In Spring/Summer I love to wear a Violet fragrance. In the quest for the perfect Violet scent I have tried old/new/obscure Violet fragrances and have found that Violetta is the most perfect of them all. I hope Penhaligon's will keep this delightful fragrance available.Would you recommend it? : Yes

This fragrance far exceeded any expectations I had, I will be using this until the day I pop-off. The violet smell is gorgeous, then, as it wears into the skin it becomes this beautiful fresh fragrance, I would make everyone wear it if I could so that I could smell it everywhere all the time. Don't ever stop making this perfume, and it would be nice to have other body products with the Violet fragrance.Would you recommend it? : Yes
