Nothing to write home about
This fragrance has a “drugstore perfume” vibe at first. Not necessarily a bad thing, but somewhat joyless and hangs a little heavy around your neck. That must be the violet because that’s the read I get with most violet fragrances. The middle notes seemed to miss me altogether. But the dry-down is rather nice and clean. For me, I don’t think the initial bouquet is worth wading through to get to the pleasant final hours. It didn’t wow me. I prefer my fragrance with a little more substance.

Simplicity at its best!
This is a deceptively simple perfume; while it does not have a deep, multilayered profile neither is it a "one note" or flat scent. Its lack of "complexity" is actually what makes it shine and makes me love it so much! The top notes are obviously, but not overpoweringly floral, with the lotus and violet coming out distinctly. Below that notes of very light musk and bright, crisp tea provide a perfect base that gives this perfume some strength without overwhelming the delicate florals.What I enjoy the most about this perfume is that unlike most floral scents it was not sweet/warm, nor was it citrusy/clean. Often heavy floral is mixed with heavy musk/ patchouli and it becomes too cloying to wear everyday or is only right for dates and special occasions. Other times I have noticed florals blended with citrus and clean notes to make them more summery; I have found these to have little silage or staying power, and are pretty basic... Not so with this perfume!! Uncommon floral choice of lotus and violet paired with the tea make it a standout!This is a perfect scent for the spring!

The scent was way too light. I could barely smell it. I felt like I had to use a whole bottle to be able to notice I’m wearing it. I’d be mad if I paid for a whole bottle of it, especially because it’s an expensive fragrance.the scent was alright, just light floral, kind of watery. Underwhelming. I really wanted to love it.

Vibrant take on a violet
Violet is one of my all time favorite floral notes, and I love that it's being displayed here as something watery and truly botanical rather than the powdery version in most violet scents. The tea and berry notes keep this one pretty bright, but the subtle musk and cedar help to ground the scent and improve its longevity. A must try for any floral lovers.

Lasts for About Two Minutes
I love violet perfumes, so I was very excited about EB’s version, especially with all the hype around this house. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a watery green violet with an unfortunate peppery note that reminds me of old cut flowers in stale water. Evidently lots of other users love it, so maybe it’s just not my style. If you want a light, fresh violet, Nicolaï’s Violette in Love is a better choice (and I would love to see some perfumes from the house of Nicolaï here at Scentbird)! Two stars for lack of performance, originality, or interest—Fragile Violet isn’t unwearable, but it isn’t worth the 20 bucks unless you plan on respraying all day every day. Too fragile for me.

I thought it would come in the original bottles, but instead scentbird poures each scent into its own plain bottle. I think i enjoy collecting the bottles more than actually wearing the scents. so this took my enthusiasm away justt a little, besides that scent was ok, and delivery was on time and its all good. This scent only getting three stars because it reminds me of another perfume, maybe clinque happy or someone old in my life. but its still nicer than not wearing perfume. I do like that its very very floral. no hint of alcohol or baby powder.. just intense floral

Lotus Doesn't Disappoint!
I love just about anything with Lotus in it and this combination of Violet and Lotus hits all the right olfactory notes for me from top to base! It goes on clean like most varieties of lotus fragrances typically do on me, then there's a pleasant, but not overpowering, sweetness that settles in and I imagine that's the Violet finding a happy meeting of the minds with the Lotus. All in all, a nice, sweet, clean fragrance that plays well when layered with citrus or more woodsy scents.

I’m not usually a fan of floral scents, more of a fan of earthier, spicier fragrances, but the notes of tea and musk along with the unisex branding drew me into this one. It’s a bit overwhelming with the lotus at first for my taste but as it dries down it has a pleasant spicy edge and is much more enjoyable. Only complaint is that it wears off quickly

I like unisex colognes, and this one heavily leans into the more feminine lane; but I'm not mad about it. It's really intensely "dark floral" and occasionally I'd catch a more masculine note. Conversely my husband hated it and said it smelled like something an old lady would wear. I'd recommend giving it a chance if you're into unisex colognes. Just don't fall in love, this stuff is impossible to find online outside of $300-$400 a bottle on eBay.

Initially I thought this was a bit powdery and feminine, however over a few hours the scent grew on me, and I can’t get enough. The mix of floral notes and an almost musk base are perfectly balanced. At the end of the day it lingers, and you still get a hint of floral and it reminds me of fresh denim. This is rather potent and only a single spray lasts me the whole 8 hour workday. Will certainly be ordering again.

This scent is a very different scent from my normal. Very long lasting and has a strong floral scent. My first though was this was too feminine, but others didn’t share my view. I’m giving it a few more days and letting the idea sit in my mind. Either way a strong start to my subscription.

Flowers and musk
Fragile Violet has a very unique floral fragrance that smells great on my skin all day long. It is soft and the fragrance is consistent for hours. It also has another undertone that I cannot identify but it has an odor reminiscent of ‘musk’ or the smell of the sun on your skin at the end of a windy day. It is not offensive, but it is definitely there. And at the end of the day, I enjoy the lingering floral of Fragile Violet as I relax and prepare for the night.

This was love at first sniff. Sweet, yet floral, delicate and relaxing. The dry-down isn’t my favorite as it becomes... I don’t know the right description for that smell. Maybe sharp? If you’ve smelled Giorgio Armani Aqua di Gio (men’s parfum), then you’ll know. Salty? I still like it, but my ex wore the Armani scent, so it turns me off. I love everything except the ending of this perfume.

Fragile violet was met with many different reactions. On one hand my gf loves how it smells on me(age30). My students (age12-13) however seem to think it smells a little grandmotherish. It’s sweet yet strong with nice notes of lavender that wafted through out the day. Speaking of that it was very long lasting as I would get compliments way into the evening after early morning application.
