“Violet Biscuit Dough”

CARON : N'Aimez Que Moi

by Daltroff (1916)

Created for soldiers to offer their faithfulness to their girls.
 

Very warm and comforting scent, almost dough like. Sweets, then some violets and fat orris. 30 minutes in thick oily lemongrass; juicy petitgrain; warm aromatics (star anise, but sweet and wrapped in lemon oil); neroli and carnation. It sweet; slight leather and heaps of dripping wood. After 1 hour it still has this distinct oilyness, Christmas market and lemongrass. Cookie dough big time! Violets surprisingly tame.
