Violet Blonde has the spirit of a classical, European fragrance. it is formal, polished, and yet draws you in closer and closer, like a beautifully dressed woman whose refined presence charms, then fascinates, and ultimately seduces you.
I don’t know how he does it – but whatever Tom Ford touches he makes incredibly sexy. He just knows and understands women and how they should look and smell. I normally love trying fragrances but burn out quickly from disappointment. When I was offered the chance to try Tom Ford Violet Blonde I was excited because what Tom does, he does well.
Violet Blonde juxtaposes the lovely Violet with notes of Orris, the precious root of the Iris flower and infuses it with the lush, erotic energy of Jasmine Sambac. These three precious ingredients harken back to the glamorous days of perfumery whne the most expensive ingredients in the world were crafted into signature scents. Violet Blonde does exactly that.
The sample came in a mini-version of the fragrance itself – no sample vial here but a proper box and mini bottle. When I read the description of the scent I was worried that it may be too floral – don’t get me wrong I love the way flowers smell but I personally don’t want to smell like a bouquet. The moment I experienced Tom Ford’s Violet Blonde any fear of smelling like flowers disappeared. The scent is very sensual – it’s a bit sweet and musky at the same time. I don’t know the technical terms for how it smells but I do know that I like it!
Those of you who know me know I’m a Chanlephile but I look forward to wearing Tom Ford Violet Blonde. It’s really lovely, isn’t too harsh and just smells sexy. I have a feeling that I’ll be going through the sample pretty quickly and purchasing a full-size bottle. Next time you’re at Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue or Neiman Marcus you definitely need to stop by the fragrance counter to try this out – you will not be disappointed!
