Village Candle Violet Blossom is a new fragrance for 2019. I’m looking for an “English garden” type of floral fragrance and I thought this might fit.

The official scent notes of Village Candle Violet Blossom are: violet, rose, iris, heliotrope, musk.
I burned a small two wick jar of Violet Blossom and I do get a “home garden” sort of feeling while burning it. It’s not my idea of an English garden, so the search continues, but it’s a garden-y floral mix. The violets are the strongest note, you get a Damask type rose and the strong iris in the background. There are a lot of strong floral notes in here and I guess they’re fighting a bit since they are so distinct. I’m thinking this is why they added the musk, to mellow the floral mix down a bit and try and blend them together. I don’t think you can really blend violets, iris and strong roses without adding something to prevent headaches. I’m not normally a fan of musk with strong florals, I like it with either nutty notes, fruit or woodsy scents but it works in Violet Blossom.
I burned my two wick small jar of Village Candle Violet Blossom in my main hall in my luminary candle holder and it scented the hall in about 20 minutes. I got a nice wax pool in under an hour, due to the two wicks. I don’t trim the wicks on my Village Candles to make sure they perform well and I always burn them in tall candle holders to keep them safe. I’d say the scent throw on Violet Blossom is a solid 9.
It’s a very strong scent and I’ll burn it in spring because I think it needs cooler weather to really get the best out of it.
