Vintage Violet: Mysterious Ways, Green Chypre
A Layered Scent Story: Vintage green satin covers her skin but barely. The ribbon laces criss-cross over and over from navel to heart, weaving a rhythm finished in a loose bow. Flesh invites coming closer, as the pull of powdery violets whisper seductive wishes. The enticing touch of soft fingertips gently caress the waves of dark, perfumed hair. Longing swells like a budding plume waiting for the angle of the sun to bring it to full bloom.

- There is something really special about a chypre that is hard to put a finger on, but in Vintage Violet, Ananda humbly attempts to capture the uniqueness, the boldness, and that sexy something that a chypre can evoke. Vintage Violet features a slightly modern edge, with grassy green notes of violet leaf, and artisan tinctured orris root which gives this the necessary ionones that give the perfume the elements of a violet fragrance, while drying down into a complex seduction of woods, florals, and secret ingredients of root and leaf.
- Ingredients: 100% Natural Botanical Artisanal Fragrance made only in small batches and hand composed by artisan perfumer Ananda Wilson
- About the maker: Gather Perfume's approach to products is that of purity and authenticity. Ananda Wilson, of South Hadley, MA, sees perfume as a way to tell a story, to compose a song, to paint a landscape, to read a poem, to process a feeling, or recall a memory. She seeks to have her scents contain a little of the familiar, a little of the unfamiliar, and a cadence or crescendo, but most importantly, she wants you to be moved. Creating perfume is a natural extension of her life - a way to give art and beauty to others, to serve in a way that is beyond material products. She wishes to invoke experience, to lavish you with delight and pleasure, and to connect you with a facet of the divine through the transcendent experience of smell.
