A complete reproduction from an 18th century formula, this violet perfume powder is as close to the original as possible. This violet powder has strong hints of bergamot, as well as a pleasant citrus and spice note, quite a indulgent treat and one that has been reproduced using the finest herbs, spices and floral ingredients, inclusive if imported perfumer's oils. The powder itself, four generous ounces of it, is provided with a beautiful wooden box, used to store the powder and to prevent it from obtaining too much external moisture, with the powdered sealed in a separate container to prevent spillage during delivery.

Powders such as these were used by both women and men as a means of scenting the body without overpowering the senses and as a means of also scenting the hair. Applied sparingly to all parts of the body and hair, this would mask any unpleasant body odours, while also absorbing sweat, preventing chaffing as an added benefit.
