Violettes du Czar Eau de Parfum
Violettes du Czar Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Oriza L. Legrand. The notes of this fragrance are Violet leaves, wild violet, violet from Nice, iris, heliotrope, tolu balm, leather, amber, and gaiac wood.
Of the many honors bestowed upon the legendary perfumers of France, only Oriza L. Legrand was ever given the title of?Purveyor to the Russian Court.?? As the standout fragrance from the ensuing royal collection, Violettes du Czar caused a sensation across the Courts of Europe, thrilling the men and women noble enough to wear it with its audacious fortitude. Now, Oriza L. Legrand has brought back this classic fragrance, and we’re delighted to report that this violet-and-leather stunner is every bit as head-turning as it must have been 100 years ago.
Much of Violettes du Czars’ distinctive character comes, unsurprisingly, from the violets- specifically, the distinguished violets found in the south of France. Violettes du Czar showcases these prized flowers in all of their complexity, opening with the energizing sharpness of green violet leaves and earthy wild violet flowers before the sophisticated, lightly woody sweetness of the prized violets of Nice takes center stage in the heart, supported by iris and heliotrope. A virile yet silk-smooth accord of Russian leather anchors the base, adding power without sacrificing an ounce of sophistication. The days of the czar may be long gone, but his royal fragrance is back and better than ever.
