This fragrance is perfect on its own or for blending with other fragrances. I have used it in several melt and pour projects and it always works out beautifully.
Mix with Litsea Cubeba or Valencia Orange ESOs and that takes the mix to a new level. I used on its own in a lotion and it is very nice. This is a more than decent violet and quite a good strength.
Like the description says, this is a simple, violet scent. To add a woodsy note that evokes more of the type of natural setting violets grow in, I added a tiny bit of Tobacco and Bay Leaf FO. (Thank you BB for free samples!) The result is a combination that people absolutely love--including my grandmother. :-)
It might be English grandmotherly for mature adults, but for big kids like me, it smells like Mr Bubble! The description doesn't lie about it moving quickly--you might be able to manage a quick swirl, but don't plan on anything intricate.
