Details and Care
Violette de Parme from Institut Tres Bien is very upfront about what to expect. Released in 2016, this is a very violet perfume. However, the fragrance house was careful in its blending to provide you with dimension and various notes that blend nicely with the violet so it is not one-note.
Rather Violette de Parme is a complex fragrance. It has woody undertones and the violet mixes with galbanum to produce something light and pleasing to the nose. This perfume is surprising in that it is obviously crafted with an expert hand to produce something that lingers on the mind of anyone who smells it.
Top Notes: violet leaf, galbanum, lemon, bergamot, lavendin
