Dark Violet & Vanilla by Express Cologne. Dark Violet & Vanilla is a sensual fragrance for men that was released in 2019.
Ideal for evening events, this masculine fragrance builds upon base notes of patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla. This combination grounds the fragrance in subtle woody and herbal accords to soften the floral heart notes of ylang ylang, violet and musk. Top notes of bergamot, pink pepper and cinnamon add a fresh spicy accord with a gourmand undertone. The overall effect is a
masculine fragrance that is smoky and sensual with a few fresh citrus notes mixed in to brighten the aroma.
