Rating: I used this at 5% in CP soap. The fragrance was VERY light. I think I will need to try using it at at least 10% to get the fragrance strong enough. I don't see a recommended usage rate on this. I'll have to give it time, to see if it holds up in CP soap.
Though light, once it's in soap anyway, this is a very aggressive violet. I added a touch of benzoin and a touch of musk to chill it out a little. These additions worked well with it.
It's a good scent, but I have to give it a three because it's so weak.
Rating: This is an earthy, deep, dark, warm and intoxicating scent that's more sensual than Jasmine. You can us it as a perfume substitute, add a couple drops to your favorite Shampoo/Conditioner, or use it to make Soaps and Candles. My favorite Fragrant Oil from ND. NEVER STOP MAKING THIS!
Rating: I bought the 16 oz bottle of this trusting the other reviews and I am SO HAPPY that I did!! This is truly lovely in everyway and in every application I've tried thus far.
I'm about to try CP soaping with it, so will update.
GREAT JOB, NDA!!!
Rating: I bought this to try because I love the smell of C. Howard Violet mints. While it is not exactly a match it is very reminiscent and I love it. I used it to make a CP soap and there was no acceleration or ricing and the scent has held up well so far. I am going to be buying a bigger size next time.

Rating: Excellent Violet scent. It is a more earthy, grounded floral that is still sweet, but not cloying. It is a good floral note to include in more "masculine" scent combos. I mixed some of NDA's Sandalwood Supreme in with this Violet in a lotion and it the two play rather nicely together. maybe 2:1 violet:sandalwood. The violet is stronger and longer lasting than the sandalwood as well.

Rating: Very realistic scent, I tend to go for the unexpected, this is not what most people look for in soap but ,however they do say " it does smell good. " I have blended it with raspberry which softens the scent and it turns out fab.
Rating: Love this fragrance, a beautiful floral scent not too sweet

Rating: I have to agree with the person who proclaimed that this is a true violet scent... It really is. I can't tell the difference between the real stuff and this one. All in all it smells amazing and for anyone who loves violet .. buy it.

Rating: This FO really captures the essence of the violet- sharp at first with a feminine, powdery dry down. I have used it successfully in perfume oils and it pairs very well with other florals. Beautiful!
Rating: Holy Crow! Is this a scent... or is this a scent! Delicious and truly VIOLET! When I opened the bottle and sniffed... I was more than amazed. Not only that... I added a few drops on a napkin piece inside a sealed zippered plastic bag to let some friends get a sniff... and wow... so-o-o... so-o-o... NICE! I will order a larger bottle of this fragrance... super in my violet soap! Thank you again ND, you are definitely #1!

Rating: Very nice scent! And I'm not normally a "flower" person
By:Karina, Richmond Hill, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Sep-2007
Rating: I like this FO. Very feminine and delicate smell. Really flowery and not too sweet. This oil is appealing. I use it in my soaps and it is really appreciated.

Rating: The person below me is right! So light of a scent, it smells purple! This was my first order of oils from ND and I'm so very glad I chose this one.. This will definitely lift your spirits on a cold snowy day!
By:Lisanne, St. Catharines, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: A very very very pretty and delicate violet scent. This violet FO almost smells purple it's so close to the scent of violet flowers. This FO needs careful handling in CP soap like many floral fragrances. Very low temps, hand stirring and be prepared to move fast to get it in the moulds.
