Details and Care
Versace Couture Violet is a violet-based floral perfume launched by the design house Versace in 2014. Versace's Couture collection features specialized fragrances that don't necessarily fit within any Atelier Versace fragrance collection, but rather embody a specific floral note favored by Dontatella Versace. Versace Couture Violet showcases the mysterious and rich violet floral note, while the other two Versace Couture perfumes feature tuberose and jasmine florals.
The fragrance has a simple composition that highlights its violet, which comes in a pure and high-end concentration. The only accent notes are a hint of powdery musk as a base and two adjacent spring florals: heliotrope and mimosa flower. Lovers of the unique scent of violets and subtle, fresh spring florals should try Versace Couture Violet.
Top Notes: heliotrope, mimosa flower
Middle Notes: violet
Base Notes: white musk
