What Does Love In Idleness Eau de Toilette Smell Like?

The perfume opens with sweet, rose-like raspberry and a crisp green note of fresh violet leaf. The delicately soft and powdery orris sits alongside the romantic Grasse violet and almondy heliotrope in the heart, while the seductive blend of earthy patchouli and damp tree moss transports you to the heart of an English woodland, rounding out this spell-binding violet love potion.

Heart notes are Violet Flower, Orris, Heliotrope.
Base notes are Tree Moss, Patchouli.
Why it’s Escentual:
Here at Escentual, we’re suckers for a good fragrance story, and we have to admit that we love the inspiration behind Atkinsons’ Love In Idleness. If you’re an avid fan of Shakespeare, then you might recall the love potion used by Puck the fairy in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ - and, you guessed it, the elixir was made from a flower called ‘love-in-idleness’ (otherwise known as the wild pansy). The potion is created when Cupid’s arrow accidentally hits the flower, transforming the petals from white to purple as the flower's juice becomes a love potion. And Atkinsons’ fragrance exudes a magical charm and ethereal innocence, which you’d expect it to have based on its inspiration; it’s almost as though the scent has been plucked straight from the stage.
Created to celebrate the Grasse violet flower, Love In Idleness is a sensual love potion that feels like a powdery cloud of violet on your skin. In fact, the aroma of this flower has been captured by Firmenich’s NaturePrint technology for an authentic but innovative accord. As sweet and hazy as a midsummer night’s dream, Love in Idleness is the fragrance of love at first sight, a meeting between a feminine orris-violet accord and a seductive masculine woody-chypre dry down. It’s magic in a bottle!
