 Sixteen92 Bruise Violet Reviews

Basenotes - "This is not the bright and loud makeup smell of Malle's Lipstick Rose - the bright parma violets and fizzy rose with the light rice powder. Rather this is a more elegant, rose petals in the bath, violet petal soap, light body powder or pressed powder. Violet and rose are the real stars."

Basenotes - "Delicate. Powdery flowers like I've not smelled before. Lipstick in pale pink. Faint rose petals. Clouds of memories from another time. Suberb! Wispy violet. Smiling iris. Need more..."

Basenotes - "The lighthearted delicate, powdery lilt of the opening is charming and affecting. This is full-on expression of the inside of my mother’s makeup box. Its fragrance had such power to bring to you a quiet, still moment and the ability to stop time and envelop you in a hush in a way I never understood. When Bruise Violet dries down it brings out for me a butch makeup accord, wrapped in subtle leather, Ooh, nice. That the drydown is as strong as the top and middle and brings it to a satisfying end makes this one stand out in a time of top-loading and weak endings."
