Summary: This is the third of the three single note florals I purchased through Amazon. I know that buying a fragrance you have never smelled before can be risky, but with a single floral you should be pretty safe; I was not disappointed in any of my 3 purchases. This smells just like the tiny sweet violets that grow wild and bloom early in the springtime. I know the spots where they grow locally and always seek them out on my dog walks to enjoy the incredible scent.

Summary: I always used this lovely perfume (and soap) in England and brought some with me, Unfortunately,when it was finished ,I couldn't get any more and was told Yardly had stopped making it. Imagine my delight when I found it on your web-site and was able to order it again. It smells wonder ful and makes me happy, MLL.
Summary: Violet is a favorite scent of mine. I was always looking for a violet similar to the Violet Water made by Crabtree and Evelyn in the 1990's. This is the closest I could find that was not also expensive. I asked for and received it as a birthday present last month, and I'm happy with it. It's rather a one-note fragrance, but that note is lovely -- a very Victorian, but not "old-ladyish," violet scent.
Summary: The reasons for loving perfumes are many, but my primary reason for delight in April Violets is that it renews my memories of a very lovely woman who used it all the time. She and her husband were friends of my parents. When she visited and they used the guest room, I used to go in and sniff the pillows after they left! Delivery of this spray was prompt, and I've been using it for some time now; my husband likes it too!
Summary: I do like this fragrance but it was not what I was hoping for. I was looking for a stronger violet note then this has. I want as pure of a violet sent as I can find. I found one years ago in a shop. It was a small bottle and smelled just like the violets I had picked from Great Grandmothers yard as a child. Call me old fashioned but I like the old fashion fragrances.
