Jo Malone Violet & Amber Absolu was introduced in 2019, created by Anne Flipo. From the brand "In the Arabian night, an ethereal violet mysteriously blooms. Beloved of the British flower bed, its elusive scent of darkly purple petals and violet leaves wraps around oud and white musk, anchored by warm, sophisticated amber." Notes of violet, violet leaves, patchouli, labdanum, amber, oud and white musk.
Colognoisseur - "Violet & Amber Absolu opens with rich violet on display. Violet is one of my top tier favorite perfume ingredients. This is a great one to use. Mme Flipo threads through filaments of labdanum and patchouli. These take what was already fully-rounded violet and makes it three-dimensional. The patchouli adds an earthiness which is the right support for the violet. The base accord are those Middle Eastern ingredients. Amber is the focal point but there is an expansive white musk and subtle oud which rise off the warmth of the amber. It as if they are a brazier warming the violet accord above."
Fragrantica - "A scent of candied violets on a dry oud base, with some good quality amber added. All of that blended very well."
From Cafleurebon - "Jo Malone Violet and Amber Absolu offers a myriad of olfactory fantasies, fables of gardens and lovers, sultans and spirits, fragrant legends from long ago and far away"
