Violet Leaf concrete is our Egyptian distiller’s master piece. It is intensely fresh, green and delicately floral. I was tempted to write nothing because my description feels pale. I thought that I would leave the adjectives to fearless aromatic lovers to decide for themselves. But having spent time on the Nile, I reckon it unforgivable not to mention the luciousness of the soil which translates to the aromatics produced and incredible vegetables I ate while there. The violet plant being the tender hearted aromatic it is, must be hand harvested and only after four years of growth. The green note is the aroma I smell when I bury my face in the first melons of the summer at the local farmer’s market, intensely green, floral and spectacular. Violet Leaf is impactful in any natural perfumery composition and is anaromatic I came to Egypt for.
