Skin type: Dry
Unfortunately this perfume smelled amazing, but is just way to feminine to be called unisex. I gave it away.

Love the smell
Loved the smell, but didn't work well with my skin. Very flowery.
Age: 35 to 44
So many compliments!!
This was light and floral enough for spring but really stuck around with just one spritz. Had so many compliments. Definitely getting this one again!!
Age: 35 to 44
First heard of this scent when I went looking for another one in Las Vegas. Instantly became a fan of this particular perfume line when trying another fragrance of his. Fragile Violet is very different from what you’re used to wearing. It’s a memorable scent that remains as the day progresses. If you’re interested in trying out floral scents, this one is a very good introduction them. You get the tea notes along with mulberry, and as the fragrance settles, the violet and hints of musks come through. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone.

Good first scent
My first time trying Scentbird and out of my recommendations I chose this scent for my first month. It's very flowery, yet musky, not sweet. It's a very nice scent and meshes well with my natural smell, but I don't love it.

Better than expected
I thought that this cologne would be significantly different than what i am used to but i wanted to try something new. I personally prefer clean, more subtle scents and this is a bit stronger than my normal comfort zone but fantastic nonetheless. It is also a scent that i find stays with me all day and does not wear off quickly. I highly recommend this to people that prefer a clean, fresh scent.

Changes on you
When first applied I get more of a sweet scent mixed with the black tea. Then it settles to the tea and floral scent with the sweet in the background. I kind of like it as an everyday but do not think I will where it out on dates where I prefer sweeter scents. It is different and takes getting used to. I may later it.
Age: 25 to 34
Skin type: Dry
Kind of strong mulberry
I don't dislike it but it is not my favorite. I tend to like cleaner scents and I knew this would be a deeper scent but it smells mostly like pepper and you dont really get the rest of the notes coming through after it sits for 5 minutes.

Very Mature Scent
While I do like this scent, it is very mature. It has a powdery scent to it, slightly musky but all around good. My husband thinks it smells old lady
good, if subtle
Liked the scent. Seems to be on the lighter/more subtle side. Fresh and floral.
Exactly what it says
It smells exactly like it says it does. I was hoping there would be some other complimentary notes in there, too, but I don't think there are.
Its very light
Pleasant, but so light it reminds me more of a body spray, not very complex, does not develop into anything special, although the name is precious ,
Pretty, delicate, floral
This is a soft violet, I can definitely smell the violet and I like that they used the entire flower and not just the petals or just the leaves but both. It brings out the violet nicely - like a real flower. I can smell a little citrus too.
This scent is so gorgeous that you feel it...
You feel as beautiful as you smell when wearing this fragrance. I loved it the minute I tested it. You can't imagine this scent till you smell it. So beautiful and special.
Nice day time winter time
Smells good stays on long, like wearing on a crisp winterdays in mn.
I love the scent. Very floral and amazing.
Pretty generic floral scent. Nothing special
Noticeable Scent! Lasts Long
People Notice this scent because it is different! Lots of compliments! The scent will last long. It took me a day to get use to it but it does really smell nice..
Love the sweet fragrence of this one!
I enjoyed another scent by this brand and thought I'd give this one a try. So glad I did. If you like florals, violets take a chance on this one. You will not be disappointed.
A great and long lasting floral scent!
I reallly like this perfume. It’s long lasting and not too strong. It’s definitely one of my favorites!
The tea note saves it.
I liked this ok. I hated it freshly sprayed, it was so old-lady strong that I gagged. I wanted to wash it off immediately, but them my 2-year-old needed attention and I had to endure it while I helped her. But after it settled on my skin, the dry down was quite nice. The black tea notes came forward and it rounded out and softened. I think it's actually very nice for a violet fragrance. I like the smell of real violets so I keep trying perfumes with them, but the truth is, synthetic violet smells like sticky-sweet poison - no matter how you cut it. I personally will stay away from all violet based scents, I've learned my lesson. But if I had to wear one, this would be it.
Florals by Eric Buterbaugh Fragile Violet
nice scent. doesn't last as long as I hoped but still good.
Interesting yet overwhelming
EB Florals is a very interesting scent. It's pleasant at first, but becomes overwhelming as it lingers throughout the rest of the day. It reminds me of a mix of CK One with a strong touch of violet, flowery scent.
I'm not sure what note it is in this fragrance, but it smells very generic and reminds me of a middle aged elementary school teacher and there's something about this fragrance that makes me think of j'adore by dior which i'm not a fan of. Both fragrances smell strong to me and make me feel like i[m being punched in the face by scent.
Similar to other florals
The scent is middle of the road for me. While the listed notes are different from the other floral perfumes I've tried, this is hitting the same notes for me. I can't pinpoint the dominate scent coming through. It's not bad, but it isn't the best.
Long lasting scent
It goes on strong and then is a lighter scent, which is nicer. I wanted to smell more violet.
Such an interesting scent. Definitely buying another.
Lasts all day!
This scent is long lasting and makes me feel sophisticated. I get a lot of compliments on it. It has a strong floral scent, and is slightly "mature" in my opinion.
My lady friends told me that they would wear but if they smelt a guy with it on, they would say "yummy". It is a bit feminine but I wear it very often, it's fresh, light and very trendy. Not to mention, it's not a popular scent so you won't smell like every other lame out there.
I love this scent, you almost think the scent doesn't' last but it does. I have people all the time tell me just how good I smell even after I have had this on all day without reapplying. This fragrance dries down to a very beautiful smell. :-)
Sorta linear, not long-lasting
I was expecting more. This is a pretty basic, linear violet with some musk. It's not even a great violet. After a few hours, I smell a little violet but that's it. For the price, i was expecting less ordinary.
There's Nothing Remotely Violet-y About This
This was such a disappointment. It's that kind of generic, overly-strong, cheap-smelling fragrance I'd expect to find in the discount bin at a department store. It's not fragile (it's a olfactory sledgehammer, actually), and it's definitely not violet.
My Favorite Scent Yet
I've been using scentbird for a while and I've found some scents that I enjoy but this is the first time I've literally had to drop everything and go out and buy (an unfortunately expensive) full sized bottle of perfume. I wear it all of the time, its so light and fresh, and I swear it's the only scent I've ever worn that people feel the real need to talk about, everyone always says I smell amazing! Do yourself a favor, specifically if you like the smell of violets, and add this to your queue
BEST ONE YET
This scent is so unbelievably delicious! I cannot stop smelling it. I just wish it came i a full size!
While I don't consider myself very masculine. This scent was just too much on the feminine side. It actually reminds me of a perfume my nana used to wear. Smells like withered flowers.
I love this one, it took a couple days to grow on me but is one of my go to scents...I keep checking the bottle to see how much I have left. It’s a little sweet but still fresh doesn’t have a true violet smell though
This is a heavy sweet floral scent. There is nothing unisex about it.
This cologne/perfume claims to be unisex but it looks and smells more feminine than manly. I gave it to my wife. The scent is perfect for a women. It smells great.
Every time I wear this scent I get complimented. It’s beautifully floral n sweet the edge of violet in the scent makes it very unforgettable!! It’s not overpowering in the least. I don’t want my scent to arrive before I do!! I love light floral sweet scents so if that’s your cup of tea then by all means buy this!!!!
My favorite so far
This fragrance is AMAZING! I love how vibrant it is but not to overbearing, just perfect.
I absolutely love this scent. I mostly chose it because I love violet and the color purple. Though the perfume itself is less pigmented than the photo, the scent is what matters and it won't disappoint. The violet wasn't as strong as I thought it would be, but it blended perfectly with the other notes. This is a perfect scent for spring. I mat even buy the bottle.
I am a true violet lover. I'm not so sure i pick up any violet in this, but i love it. It's a great mix of freshness and woodsiness. This is the first perfume my boyfriend has immediately complimented me on, so it's a keeper. Update: still love the fragrance but if you have sensitive skin, use care. I have dealt with two really severe rashes on my face when some accidentally sprayed on my cheek.
Floral and light but pleasant.
Take it or leave it
I guess you either love it or hate it! Not my favorite as far as every day, but I really do enjoy this one when I do wear it! It's unique amongst any Violet perfume I've worn. I LOVE the scent of Violets, however, plain violets as a perfume is just too floral/sweet to me. This fixes that and has many layers.
Almost as bad as anything from Estee Lauder.
Like something you know very well.
It smells like popular Kenzo Leu'par and Armani Aqua Di Goi for me. Powdery, fresh and floral, cedar, water lily.
Beautiful Floral Scent for Everyday!
This is a wonderfully light and floral scent for everyday. It is not overwhelming at all, and is more subtle than described.
Love this scent. Smells clean and sassy.
Very floral, but without any sweetness or powdery notes that usually accompany a floral. Ive been wearing it daily and the dry down is goegeous. Lasts a long time. I already purchased another! I'm obsessed!
Was good ,lasted a long time
Smells awfull. Cant describe the smell but so not my taste.
It's definitely an androgynous scent. Not sure why it's called fragile violet, as that implies a delicate, floral, feminine perfume. This has a clean, water scent to it. I enjoy it. It's neat that it's blue, too.
It’s shipped very fast and it lasted all day long it smells really good and it’s very strong
Really strong, lasted a long time....it smelled gross.
Gross smell...really disliked
Gross...smells like a lead pencil sharpened
This fragrance is very light and floral. It is quite airy, light and not meant to be masculine at all. I'd dare to say that although this is offered as aneeded unisex fragrance, it's probably best for a young woman. Great for a teenage girl, not meant for middle aged men.
As my first scent, I have to say that I enjoy this so far. It’s really perfumy and florally in the beginning, however the dry down is very, very nice and soft. It reminds me of Prada’s Amber Homme (which ends up smelling the same). I sprayed it on at around 2p this afternoon and it has lasted until now, so that’s some longetivity that it has. I would rank it higher if it wasn’t so florally.
I get so many compliments on this fragrance! love it
It's a pretty strong scent and it always makes me sneeze but once it settles OMG it smells SO good. If you like mixing scents I would spray la vie est belle by Lancôme and then spray this on top and it makes the most amazing sweet floral scent. I looooove this perfume. Wish it wasn't so expensive otherwise I'd buy the full size bottle
Beautiful perfume with distinct violet notes. Great for the summer. Doesn't stay long.
I loved the floral fruity woodsy scent & I think it stayed on for quite a while
It is OK. Despite of All the good reviews, i was slightly disappointed... as it smelled not so unique. But my favorite part is it reminds me of light 90's popular scents. Nice that i was able to receive this before Summer ends.
It's for women. And it didn't last long.
nice scent. Not too overwhelming. Doesn't last that long.
I love this scent! It smells sweetly floral without coming off as "old lady"ish like certain strong florals tend to be. I especially love that the spray is a dark purple so I've been keeping it outside the container because it's just too pretty. Definitely a good summer or spring scent so I'm trying to make it last til the end of summer!
I absolutly love this scent. It smells so good and got alot of comments on it when i wore it
Love this! It's a strong scent but it's nice. Stays on all day. I get compliments every time I wear it. I immediately added his other fragrance to my queue.
Awful...it does not even smell minutely like Violet..it smells like a freshly sharpened pencil. I cannot help but this one is totaled two thumbs down
I really enjoyed this fragrance. It is a nice light scent that stays with you. It's the kind of perfume that you can wear anywhere.
This one is a little too "heavy" on the floral for me. It's just ok.
I don't know how to feel about this one..... its okay. However, I get A LOT of complements on it.
Very subtle and beautiful. Enjoying this one a lot!
Love, love, love this scent! It is as lush and beautiful as it looks in the bottle, but is veiled by a delicate, bittersweet quality that makes it "fragile." If poignancy had a smell, this would be it.
This is my second delivery, and my fav so far. Strong and long lasting.
It's okay, but s bit harsh and hard on my nose. It's just too "perfumy" of a scent for me, if that makes any sense. Not a favorite at all and would not elect to purchase s full size.
Honestly my favorite scent ever. The scent is a slightly sweet floral with a slight musk and it just works so well for any occasion. I wish I could get this every month!
This scent needs to be removed from the Cologne list. This is not even unisex. Smells like my grandma would wear. One month of subscription just went to waste.
I loved this sent even more than my first months!
I absolutely love this perfume the best out of all the ones I've received. I will defined order again. Love love love!!!!!💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
Smells hood really stong every time I wear it I get a migraine, smells tarty to me
I liked this fragrance this month. Fragile violet is a true Violet scent. I think it's lovely. It dries down it's very soft.
This is definitely not for a guy, not sure how it got mixed in as a man's cologne
I love this scent. Smells incredible.
It doesn't last long but the smell is awesome! Loved it!
I LOVED this one! Lightly floral, amazingly nice smelling. Only problem, it didn't seem to last very long.
The more I wear this scent, the more I like it. It's fresh with a delicate lushness. The violet and lotus give it a slight powdery-ness, but the bitterness of the tea and the juiciness of the mulberry work to keep it from cloying. A unique, subtle fragrance that will linger for hours!
This scent is light yet lingering. It is fresh and floral without being cloying. This will be my go-to scent for the rest of this month.
I was surprised that this perfume was so light airie. It's a soft and gentle scent and I would recommend it to everyone!
I love this. It smells clean and fresh. So far it is my husbands favorite scent on me. Will buy the full size.
Liked it....soft floral with faint violet note.
While its marketed as Unisex, I'm not sure many men would like it. Its a very soft and floral. As stated by a friend its very old lady like. With that being said I do like the scent and it can be very refreshing.
This is marketed by Scentbird as unisex, but it really isn't. I don't mind softer tones and I don't really like overly masculine scents, but this one smells like an "old lady perfume" and I just don't think it really works for men.
The cologne is very unusual for a mans fragrance but that is why I like it .....not your typical mans fragrance
Not a scent for a man! Or a young woman in my opinion. Flower smell and musk is very, very strong. If you enjoy smelling like your great grandmother or distant aunt that has worn the same blouse for a week without washing it, this scent is for you. If it were possible, I'd give this scent zero hearts.
Lovely. Quick spritz before bed gives a relaxing send off. And extra snuggles from hubby!
To my nose, a little dated and a lot cloying. It reminds me of EL White Linen. I can see a woman who wants to be taken seriously wearing this. Bummer! I had it in my mind this would fall into a light woody floral category like Prada infusion D' Iris. It wasn't, but I'm happy I tried it.
it's nice it's a bit strong and not my fave...it's not something I will buy
I am very fond of this gentle smell that lasts all day. It's in my queue again!
This perfume is very strong and very long lasting. It isn't an unpleasant smell, but it did give me a headache. It's also a little "old" smelling.
It's smell fantastic! Unisex fragrance, which is quite pleasing for me. Got 5Female and 2Male compliments just in one day. The reason why I've narrowed it down, is because It's a unisex fragrance. The projection of the scent is good. Not to alarming of a scent. The longevity of the fragrance is probably 5h at the most, which is average. I recommend this fragrance if you like both perfume and cologne, meaning men and women.
Delicious. The initial scent is strong and perfumey but after a few minutes the scent turns soft sweet and floral. I don't see it being masculine at all
I absolutely fell in love with this scent. The smell is clean and floral. I always get compliments on this one. Lasts almost the whole workday too. I would add this to my collection for sure.
After a week of wear, I have to say I like it! It's a unique scent--I can smell the floral and berry notes that are very pleasant. I will caution that there is a strong green note that is very prominent when you first put it on, but it eventually fades to a softer floral/berry fragrance (in my experience). I'm not sure if I would wear this in the summer, but so far, I like it for winter going into spring. Time will tell.
I threw this one right in the trash. I should have trusted the reviews that said it smells like a grandma.
I LOVE it, the smell is of true violet, gentle, sweet yet not too overpowering...unusual and old fashioned as well as fresh
I love it!! it lasts so long and not overpowering. Reminds me of Halloweenby Jesús del Pozo.
Wow! Exactly what I expected from the description but better. Light, delicate floral with just a tiny hint of cirtus. When it sits on the skin for a while its a little softer and warmer smelling but doesn't change much. Lasts several hours. I love it!
I got this one a'la carte and it was sooooooo worth it. It's an electric floral. Smells PHENOMENAL!! It fades to subtle floral. Not to overpowering, so can be used in the day or night. A very pretty sophisticated bouquet. I rate this TEN hearts if I could. For whatever reason my other review only allowed for four hearts. I meant to do five. So if this review only does four, know that I mean five.
