Enchantingly soft and powdery perfume with violets.
This Violette Précieuse is a renewed addition from the classic in 1913 in the new Private Collection, a collection filled with classics by Caron in beautiful art deco flacons, inspired by the Roaring Twenties in the starting period of the brand..
Ernest Daltroff decided to capture the scent of this beautiful and fragile violet for his perfume in 1913. In France, the violet symbolizes secret love, and for Ernest the violet symbolized his muse, Félicie, who was a very sensitive woman underneath her strong will towards the outside world.
The fresh and powdery from the violet supported by iris gets more well-rounded by the addition of raspberry.
A unique olfactory signature
Since its founding in 1904 (!), Caron has been the lead example of pure genuine passion within the classic French perfume world. The founder Ernest Daltroff was one of the perfumers who formed the perfume industry and whose influence is still noticeable nowadays, just like Jacques Guerlain and Ernest Beaux of Chanel. Together with his creative director and maîtresse, Félicie Wanpouille, Daltroff created legendary fragrances including Narcisse Noir (1911), N’aimez que moi (1917) and Tabac Blond (1919). The aromatic Pour un Homme (1934) is seen by many French as 'the' classic fragrance for men.
A new creative tandem
Since 2020, businesswoman Ariane de Rothschild and perfumer Jean Jacques determine the course of Caron. They combine their shared love of fragrance, luxury, and tradition to bring the house of Caron into the 21st century. In addition to a focus on the classics of the brand, they will launch contemporary perfumes of the same exceptional quality.
