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.
