Patricia de Nicolai has launched two fragrances for this Spring (2009): Violette in Love and Week-End a Deauville.

Violette in Love is a fresh modern luminous violet scent unlike the powdery sweet violets from the past. The note of violet slightly spiced with pink pepper and touched with sweet raspberry, is resting over the light musky base.

The notes are: essence of Italian lemon, blackcurrant bud absolute, raspberry, essence of Turkish rose, a violet-iris accord, coriander essence, pink pepper, black pepper and musk. The fragrance is available in 50ml eau de toilette.

Perfume rating: 3.58 out of 5 with 61 votes.

a beautiful and unassuming summer fragrance with notes of lemon, rose, and violets. So refreshing and pleasant!

This is a very pretty scent, but I was hoping for a more prominent violet accord. To my nose, the rose and berry initially steal the show, and then it becomes lemony. Unfortunately, I don't really care for citrus much on myself. I gave this perfume 4 or 5 wearings, but it never quite settled on my skin. I think on the right person it could be a beautiful and light summer scent.

I'd call this perfume Lemony Rose in Love, very pretty, but there is just a homeopathic dose of violet in it.

Strange name because (on me at least) this is far more a rose scent than a violet one.

It opens with a beautiful rose, dry but not powdery. Hints of raspberry sweeten the deal, but never too much. After about half an hour, I start to catch whiffs of a very haughty violet and it compliments the rose beautifully.

Then, an hour later, it's gone. An hour and a half, that's it, that's all I got. It was beautiful while it lasted, but I'd be mad if I paid far less for a perfume that only lasted this long, there's no way I'm paying these prices for one.

Niche houses really need to work on their longevity issues because this is far from the only one with this problem. They must test these frags before they put them out for sale. The fact that someone has realised well in advance that customers will get barely any time out of wearing a perfume and still choose to sell it anyway is downright disrespectful.

Violette in Love opens on my skin as a sweet, fresh violet. Unfortunately this does not last. The violet note is followed by strong lemon, then by an overwhelming musk note. Then raspberry comes in and the fragrance smelled really strange on my skin with violet, citrus and raspberry fighting each other for about a half hour. I was ready to wash off the fragrance until the lovely orris root came in to save the day, giving a bit of balance to the fruity sweetness. At this point the fragrance is nice, smelling very much like Violetta di Parma, but unfortunately this is where the similarity ends. The drydown of Violette in Love is not nearly as good or as complex as Violetta di Parma.

In the final drydown of Violette in Love all the nice notes vanish from my skin. What remains is a very powdery barely there scent after only an hour and a half. Unfortunately as more time passes the powdery remaining scent begins to smell like musty musky ambrette, one of my most hated notes in perfumery. Needless to say, this one is definitely not for me.

This is a very pleasant perfume. On me the raspberry note dominates. I don't get any of the musk base. It's just raspberry that fades. As others have noted, it doesn't last long. Three hours under the best conditions. Reminds me of Miss Charming, with violet replacing Miss Charming's rose. I prefer Miss Charming though it too doesn't last.

On my skin, more raspberry than violet. There is also a sweeet ingredient which is not listed.

Nice fragrance but instead of floral green I would categorise as floral fruity. Probaly created this Nicolai for the younger, careless generation. Her other scents submit more maturity, elegance.

I am impressed with this fragrance--it's an interesting and successfully blended mixture of sweets, powder, and herbs.

It reminds me of the smell of Walgreen's/CVS/Rite Aid during Valentine's Day when they have out those boxes of chocolates contrasting with the smell of mouthwash in the next aisle over. I love that smell.

Violette in Love reminds me of romance in a very approachable, realistic, "brushing our teeth together" kind of way, rather than a lofty, Hollywood, "love at first sight with our hair blowing in the wind on top of the Eiffel tower" kind of way.

For me this was bitter. A strange smell on my skin, could not smell the violets. I would not sugest buying this one blind!

Charming, simple and innocent:)Pleasantly sweet violet with slightly green nuances.Soft, romantic, delicately feminin...and...mischievously playful.:)one of the best violet I've ever smelled..

Mostly peppered violet dominant on me with iris, musk and rose...true clear beauty..touch of the Spring.:)

Otherwise Violette in Love is a quiet, simple fragrance but it has enough sillage to recognise around you.:)I just simply love it!;)

My husband, who hasn't personally chosen a fragrance for me since 1997 (Chanel Allure), recently purchased Violette In Love for me, and I'd never smelled it before. I was thrilled the first time I wore it, because I found it so flattering to receive this exquisite scent. While Violette is much more indicative of my husband's fragrance taste than my usual choices, it's touching that he thinks this suits me. Violette is an airy light scent, unmistakably violet, but not powdery or innocent. I agree with the reviewer who mentioned how well this would work on a bride. It has the joyful radiance of a bright bouquet. It doesn't smell like En Passant or others, but it has that magical diaphanous quality usually found in the works of Olivia Giacobetti. Violette is pure prettiness, feminity, and happiness, and it's romantic in an iconic, luxurious way. Unfortunately, its lasting power is remarkably poor.

This is my first green fragrance of any kind. I've tried greens before and they invariably failed on my skin. But this one is truly a beauty that is beholdable by most Violet lovers.

Violette in Love is a violet perfume adorned by a most juicy-sweet raspberry note. I cannot think of anyone who would not like at least a whiff of it from the bottle. The only downside is that, because it is an EDT, it has a lasting power of 2 hours the most. So if you love it on your skin, you'd need to keep re--applying throughout the day and eventually go broke because it is SO expensive. LOL! Then again my skin doesn't emanate perfume - it DRINKS it. So maybe on someone else's skin, it might last twice as much if they are lucky. I just feel lucky to have found this delicate little gem and will keep it in my collection for those special occasions.

Honestly, I didn't think was a particularly "modern" interpretation of violet. First sprayed, it's a blast of pure lemon juice. Then, the sweet, sweet sugared violet develops and the fragrance turns into violet-flavored pez, at least on my skin. You know the smell of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C tablets)? This smells like that, combined with violet candy. Not my thing.

(Previous review pulled)

I circled back to this one when I saw it was released mass market. My previous sample was from a limited edition Paris only, and I was curious to see if the scent had changed.

I believe it has. My previous review pegged this as a nice 'green take on a purple note'. Now I'm getting something different: a nice pepper take on a purple note.

This opening had me dancing on my tippy toes, literally. I LOVED it. I don't detect straight on violette, but a full bodied grape note. With pepper. Made me add a little cha cha to my dance.

As a diffuse halo this is just awesome. Can't get enough of it, actually.

I have one complaint: I"m not liking it so much when i stick my nose against my shirt. The drydown is a bit 'laundry detergent' on me, and something isn't meshing well. I'll try it again on a different occasion, but the wafting halo is the key to loving this.

Overall, a standing ovation of Rockette kicks!

To me this is a violet in sugar. But sweetness is not sticky and syrupy as has been mentioned - it is rather a sweet crystallised sugar. Slight hint of citrus juice there as well. The whole impression is clean, crisp, but also with certain simplicity and innocence. Very evocative of a bride in a white dress.
