This reminds me of hiking, camping, earthy scents. Something I would wear in the fall/winter as an everyday, non-special occasion. The sandalwood is strong, but not overpowering. Disclaimer: I love all things patchouli, sandalwood, lavender, rosemary...so to me, this is mild in comparison, and has other notes to off-set the sandalwood. The vanilla doesn't come in as a clean vanilla, but the mix works well. My 10 yr. old daughter said it smelled old-lady-ish. I can see how it would, because the lingering fragrance gets stale after a while, and it just smells like a plastic doll drenched in sandalwood/vanilla/peppery mix. I couldn't detect any violet. I think this is more of a unisex fragrance. My very masculine hubby would be able to rock it. I wouldn't order again, but I will eventually use it up. It's appealing enough, just not my fave.
