I haven’t tried anything from Nomenclature, and I haven’t tried a lot of Aedes, but I liked Iris Nazarena.
Favorite violet fragrance: This is also a note that I don’t have a lot of but have wanted to explore more. I guess if I had to pick one I’d go with Equistrius.

Favorite violet fragrance–this is tough! My favorite violet right now is Haus of Gloi Splendiferous, which smells like sugared violets and lemon cake.
Thank you for the giveaway!
In the US and you can use my email. My favorite violet scent is Bois de Violette. Thanks for the drawing!
Oh nice, thanks for the giveaway! I do live in the US. ????
My favorite Aedes scent is their signature EDP, with Copal Azur in second. I haven’t tried Nomenclature yet.
I live in the US. I like the scent of violets but don’t have a favorite violet perfume. I really like wearing Lush’s Sunny Day in my hair for the violet scent–but don’t particularly like Kerbside–so go figure. Today I am wearing what is called a neon violet–DSH’s Quinacridone Violet–which is fun.
Thanks for the drawing!
I live in the U.S. I tried a sample of Iri_Del and really enjoyed it while I had it.
I am in the US. My favorite violet is probably Sous Le Toit de Paris by Atelier. My favorite Aedes is Oeillet Bengale…or at least it’s the one I own. Thanks!

I love all the Nomenclature fragrances, but my favorite is adr_tt since I’ve been seeking out musk fragrances lately. Clean or filthy, I love them all.
Thank you for the draw!

One memory association with violets – my first trip to London with my grandmother; she purchased a violet soliflore in a hand-painted bottle for me as a momento. Still have the bottle to this day…
I’m here in the southwest US. We’re having a cool spring day, and I’m grateful for that.
I’ve been wanting to say that perfume bottles without caps make me pause. I adore the minimalism, but I’ve managed to yank the spritzer off a bottle of Eau des Merveilles several times. My hand automatically tries to take off the nonexistent cap before I spritz!

I wore Violet Blonde Tom Ford yesterday, and like it a lot.
I’m in the U.S.!
I love violet scents and my favorites are probably CBIHP A Room with a View, L’AP Verte Violette, and Guerlain Apres l’Ondee.
I’ve yet to try Nomenclature but would love to.
Ooh, fun! Thanks for the draw. I looooove Violeta! Bois de Violette is my favorite violet perfume. ❤️
Thanks for the draw, Robin! I live in the U.S.
I am binge-watching Designated Survivor and wonder how close to reality the set is?
Fun! I’m in the U.S. and I’ve sniffed this line but have yet to live in any – this looks interesting!
My favorite violet is vintage Caron N’Aimez que Moi. So tender. I love it in lighter formulations and the parfum.
I live in the US. I like Après l’Ondee for a straightforward violet and My Queen from Alexander McQueen for a more complex violet scent.
I live in the U.S.
The fragrance that started my love affair with violet as a scent note is still my favorite: vintage Balenciaga Le Dix parfum.
Thank you, Robin!
I live in the US. My favorite perfume is Apres l’Ondee Guerlain. Thank you for this awesome giveaway. <3
I live in the U.S.
Favorite violet in my collection right now is Gucci EDP II. Enjoy the way it weaves violet through its layers of bitter orange, blackberry, and cedar.
When in the mood to toss a violet hand grenade in the air, I pull the cap off of Guerlain’s Insolence edp and fire off a couple sprays.
I live in the US and have a US mailing address. You may contact me via email should I be the lucky winner. My favorite violet fragrance is Balenciaga Paris. Just wore again yeatserday and it’s delightful to wear. Thank you for this giveaway
I live in the US with US shipping address. As for violet scents..if i’m not mistaken JPG Le Male top notes are violet and lavendar, again…if I am not mistaken. They otherwise completely make a historic product that would otherwise just end up being a deep musky blend of little notice. As it stands they launched an empire (Terrible JPG is best). So I guess that’s my violet(lavendar?) pick.
I have a U.S. mailing address. I like a lot of violets, but I guess I’ll go with SL Bois de Violette. Though I also like Violette Fumée and FM Lipstick Rose. Also a fan of A Room with a View.
Favourite Aedes: Love Iris Nazarena and Oeillet Bengale.
I am in the US and you can use my email. I am just discovering violets, but am a huge fan of Aedes. Two tabs – Iris Nazarene and Copal Azur
I live in the US.
I love the smell of real violets. I have yet to find a scent that claims to be violet that can remind me of the plants I grew up with. Many scents get into violet leaf from what I have seen but I must not perceive that well, I only noticed the flowers on real plants and that has not caught my attention in any scents to date. A sample of vintage apres l’ondee was a great try though. Not that I have exhausted that hunt
I have a U.S. mailing address. My favorite Aedes fragrance is Iris Nazarena. And I’m dying to post that I’m very happy to participate.

Fave violet: L’Artisan Vert Violette
Ooh, exciting giveaway! I do live in the USA and my email address is valid.
Violet is one of my very favoritest smells, so it’s hard to pick just one. Since I have been wearing Apres L’Ondee non-stop all this past week (including today) I must go with that as my top pick.
One of my favorite violet scents is TF’s Black Violet. I only have a sample but definitely think its FBW. The violet is quite green and the overall effect is rather mossy. I live in the US and my email address is valid.
I live in the US. Feel free to contact me.
I have a weakness for rose-violet combos: Guet-Apens/Attrape Coeur, Lipstick Rose, and Beloved are all faves!
I live in the US and you may contact me by email. I think my favorite violet right now is Chanel Misia.
I live in the US. My favorite violet perfume is Bois de Violette.
Thank you for the giveaway!

Favorite violet: Guerlain’s Meteroites.
You can most definitely contact me by email
Thank you so much for this giveaway!
Thanks, Robin — I live in the US, and will be happy to be contacted by email! I haven’t smelled all the Aedes scents yet, but my favorite so far is the first one, Signature by Duchaufour (not the L’Artisan).
Live in the US, and you have permission to use my email.
My favorite violet perfume is Misia… that’s my name!
Oh yay! I live in the US! Don’t hate me – but – my all-time favorite violet scent is Choward’s gum/candies. Why hasn’t Demeter done this yet so I can wear it!?!?!?! Thanks for the shot! This is the first perfume blog I discovered and the one I visit most, though I lurk and rarely comment <3
I live in the USA & you can email me.
My favorite violet is none other than “a violet that’s been hit by a meteorite”, aka: Comme des Garcons + Stephen Jones. I wore this a few days ago; I forgot how much I liked this one…..it’s so dry and funky.
I live in the United States and can be contacted through my email. I don’t have much experience with violet scents. I do like YSL Parisienne very much.
I live in the USA and my favorite scent that has violet note is Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio for men!
Hi! I am in the US and have been investigating violet fragrances lately as it is my friend’s favorite and I have realized I am sorely lacking in violets.
I live in the US.
