Oh sweet sweet violet! Albeit its soft and shy disposition violet is actually quite the romantic. It’s sweet and slightly powdery scent is subtle yet distinct, the epitome of a blossoming romance. Violets derive their scent from Ionone, thus can only be smelled periodically due to ionone temporarily desensitizing scent receptors. After a few moments in hiding, the shy violet will spring back up as a new stimulus to your receptors. A symbol of unending love, violet is sure to move your lover.
