  • In the Imp (ITI): Strong candied violets are the top note, but the vetiver comes in as a secondary note once I recap the imp.
  • Wet: Very strong vetiver one me.  The violet is so faint that I need to concentrate to pick it up.  
  • Dry: More smoke and violet.  I like it but my husband does not.
Other Impressions: “It smells like basil and burnt tobacco ashes.  I don’t like it at all. Okay, now it’s a violet that has had a cigarette put out on it.” -Tony
