Scent Description: violet, grape, rain.
Omg I love this one, but I love literally all of Hex’s fragrances with her Violet note. Whatever her accord is, is perfection. It’s so fruity and bold like a dark blue raspberry fruit gusher. Also her Grape! I hate grape but Hex’s grape accord is also perfect! Purple Rain literally smells like its description.
Yikes. Giant smack of powdery floral violets and what I guess is rain in the bottle. It smells like liquid fabric softener maybe. It’s not airy like I would associate with dryer sheets. It’s much heavier and sort of cloying. I almost feel it physically pawing at me. It’s way too aggressive and I’m nervous. I get the same impression on skin. The rain aspect is even stronger now, giving me the dreaded Febreze vibe. It’s like I’m in a cliché commercial desperately frolicking through a field of purple flowers to demonstrate how clean and fresh I smell, then cut to an old school clothesline filled with nothing but whites. Oof. I don’t think this is going to work out. I’m desperately searching for some grape, which is why I wanted to try this one. I struggle hard and I get nothing. There’s some extra powdery stuff coming from the violet the longer it sits… and I like it even less. Yeah… no. This one is a total catastrophe on me. Extra mega pass.
A bright candied grape. The rain note makes it very bright and clean. Not too sweet and not too heavy. My favorite scent for days that I need a lift but not quite as much of a lift as a lemon based scent.
