Star Notes


Retro glamour is found as iris is scattered with a small hint of sweet violets...

Violet Ida is a fragrance that evokes confidence in 1930's Britain, where Ida Arnold, a heroine of Graham Greene's iconic novel Brighton Rock, wears violet in her hair and represents goodness, tenacity and morality. An era of feminine confidence and inspiration. The fragrance opens with a sweet fresh citrus and herbaceous note of bergamot and carrot seed, but the dark heroine is brought instantly to the fore with a deep exclusive presence of Orris butter from Tuscany. Vanilla and amber bring a modernity and smoothness to the rich,evocative scent, evoking a contrast of old and new and polished refinement.

Head Notes: Italian Bergamot, Carrot Oil
Heart Notes: Orris Beurre, Heliotrope
Lasting Impressions: Vanilla, Liquid Amber

Perfumers story

Inspired by Graham Greene's “Brighton Rock”

Inspired by the Graham Greene novel “Brighton Rock”published in 1938, this scent was always set to be a star. Set in Brighton in the 1930s, the heroine of the tale is Ida Arnold, a singer who wears violets when she performs and can be seen as quite a feminist role model for the time. The heavily orris-based perfume was created to bring modernity to the classic floral notes of Iris and Violet and finds a retro 30's seaside glamour for the 21st century Customer. A great choice for anybody seeking something confident, that leaves a scented memory behind, perhaps for the special occasion. A bold scent for a bold, glamorous wearer. Violet Ida is a great progression on from Peau Santal and Powdered Veil for customers who like powdery scents.
