This edit is showcasing the use of violets in perfumes.

It can be violet leaf absolute (still a natural material derived from the plant). Otherwise there are plenty of  violet flower aroma interpretations. The violet flower aroma in perfumery nowadays is predominantly a reconstruction, as enfleurage (when each blossom is picked by hand and put in a tray of fat to release its oils) is too labour intensive and prohibitively expensive to use. However, there are still some clever and delightful reproductions.

A witty reference to a 19th century formula when dandies would use violet water (not cologne) to moisturize the skin. Violet leaf absolute smells green, leathery and a touch earthy on its own but in a formula can provide a perfect lasting shady background for lighter notes.
