Violet Leaf is a top to middle note and should be valued for its fleeting yet seductive introduction to a perfume.

Per Actander:
In Perfumery Violet Leaf Absolute is utilized in very expensive perfumery for the 'green violet note'.
However, per Battaglia: The pleasant fresh green note of Violet Leaf Absolute may be of benefit
for improving mood and reducing the symptoms of stress-induced disorders such as anxiety and depression. 

Energetically:
Worwood states:
violet leaf absolute may be helpful for those who are shy and timid. Enables and gives them courage
to speak and be heard.
She further explains, that this material offers understanding and empathy and a way into the
great open void of love.

Blends well with:
Bergamot, geranium, lavender or sandalwood.
In Perfumes it blends well with rich florals and also compliments fresh citrus oils ie:
lemon, cold pressed lime and grapefruit.

Thoughts by Gail Adrian:
This absolutely scrumptious Absolute is subtle and cool. Upon first sniffing, it immediately calls to mind lakes, watercress, and cucumber.

SunRose's Violet Leaf is particularly lovely. In addition to these light green qualities, the overall impression of this Violet Leaf is gentle and soft. There is no trace of sharpness, only a gentle shading of vegetal softness.

For anyone who has clients that ask for culinary scents like pear, or peach, Violet Leaf offers a natural alternative to these synthesized fragrances.
