There is no real Violet flower essential oil. The elusive and evocative fragrance of the flower simply will not be captured. There are Violet leaf absolutes, but they do not smell like the flower. So we must rely on a synthetic approximation for perfumes.
This Violet fragrance oil is a typical mid-grade product, and really does smell a lot like the flower. It has a retro, old fashioned effect, and it is a very witchy, becoming personal scent. It is quite powerful, so use it delicately in blends.
