Smell Bent Violet Tendencies Fragrance Review

Smellbent Violet Tendencies* Violet Tendencies must be a play on violent because this one goes on with a punch – leather sharpened with wood and some violet.

* The way that menthol is bracing and cold, that’s how sharp the initial blast is.

* Some more wood comes to the forefront with a tad bit of spice – but it’s the violet and the leather that hold the lead.

* This smells much more expensive and manly than the bottle looks.  If this was put out by a major house, they could easily charge three times the price.

* Although kind of linear, the base notes last for more than 8 hours. Smellbent-Violet-Tendencies

Summary:  Of all the Smell Bent scents I have played with, this is the most masculine and I don’t think most women would want to wear it.  I could see a college student wearing this at their first job out of college – it’s aggressive and decisive but not overbearing.   If you are looking for a gift for a college graduate who has personality but is looking to enter the corporate world, Violet Tendencies is a good choice.

Smell Bent Violet Tendencies is available from Indiescents and the Smellbent website.
