Perfume word of the week: Viola


Viola sniph
The viola, a flower loved all over the world. With a flower family of 400-500 different varieties, the uses are many. In Sweden, it is used as a garden flower, as a medicinal plant in Greece, and is grown for perfume production in the Mecca of perfume - the French city of Grasse.

Named the flowers greatest flirt, it is known to fatigue the nose so that soon, you won't smell its scent. But then suddenly, it pops up again and disappears two seconds later - again.

But there is also a difference between viola and viola. What is still unknown to many is that the viola flower actually smells completely different depending on which part of the flower you are extracting. The viola leaves give off a strong green scent, more to the earthy and leafy direction. Actually, it isn't very nice in itself. But, in small amounts, in a well-composed composition, it gives a comfortable green violet. The viola flower, on the other hand, turns sweet and powdery. Almost a bit spicy. A clean floral scent, unlike the leaves. What they have in common is that they are both very difficult to extract, it takes a lot of flowers and leaves to get together just a little bit of perfume. And the two variants fit very well together with other flowers and spices.
