Tom Ford Violet Blonde Fragrance Review

Share This:

I don’t know a girl who’d say she has too many perfumes. I’m a sucker for the oriental, floral, woodsy variety – the ones people call “exotic”, “intoxicating”, or “heady”. Even gourmand fragrances can get me going; so long as it’s not too fruity, I’m in.

I got to try the Scentbird fragrance service which has a personalized scent recommender, and it spit out Tom Ford Violet Blonde for me. I wasn’t familiar with the scent, but I figured I’d give it a go.  (Besides, where else can you get the highest-end fragrances for $14.95 a month?)

tom-ford-violet-blonde-perfume reviewViolet Blonde is based on powdery notes of violet and iris, and it’s exactly what I love: feminine, a bit old fashioned, unique and shamelessly romantic.  Glamorous and sophisticated, Violet Blonde opens with violet leaf, Italian mandarin (which I don’t get at all from this) and pink pepper. Tuscan iris absolute, Tuscan orris butter, Sambac jasmine and sampaquita compose the fragrance’s centerpiece. Found at the base: elegant and sophisticated notes of musk, suede, cedar, vetiver and benzoin.

If that isn’t poetry, I don’t know what is.

Aside from how addicted to this perfume I am, I’m totally loving Scentbird’s service which is a novel idea I never would have considered. Fifteen bucks a month for a brand new designer fragrance? I’m all about that.  I can’t wait to see what my new favorite fragrance is next month!

Thanks to Scentbird for providing the fragrance for this post.
