Yardley ‘Poppy & Violet’ Perfume Review
My friends! Today I want to share with you a quick Yardley ‘Poppy & Violet’ Perfume Review. As you might already know, I love the Yardley brand for it’s rich heritage, love of traditional English flora and fauna and of course, their affordability. I nearly always have one of their soaps in my bathroom and I truly think they deliver the best perfumes for their price bracket. The new Yardley Poppy & Violet perfume called my name because I love violets and one of my favourite Jo Malone perfumes (Poppy & Barley) is also inspired by the humble poppy and I wanted to see how it compared! So, without further ado, let’s chat all about Yardley ‘Poppy & Violet’ Perfume.
Yardley’s Poppy & Violet is a delightful blend of Bergamot, Ivy, Red Pepper, Poppy, Rose, Violet, Cashmere, Musk and Cedarwood. It’s made from 90% natural ingredients, so it falls into the ‘plucked from nature’ style of perfume rather than the overpowering, sweet, sickly, synthetic fragrances which a lot of brands seem to favour right now. If you like more natural and uncomplicated perfumes by brands like Jo Malone, Shay & Blue or Atelier Cologne, then this is more that style of fragrance, but lighter, softer and of course, more affordable.
The dominant notes of Yardley’s Poppy & Violet are bergamot, rose, violet, musk and woods. It’s a really pretty light, soft floral which feels unique and lovely thanks to the heavy rich accords of rose and violets. It’s both classic and contemporary and it feels really pretty and special to wear. Is it as luxe as the Jo Malone Poppy & Barley? No, of course not, it also doesn’t contain that rich dry, earthy base and it’s about a sixth of the price! However, it does share similarities with it’s pretty soft floral notes and the earthy base. Personally, I think this perfume is a great ‘around the house’ perfume, it’s the kind of perfume I might wear to top up during the day for a quick pick me up, or maybe even double as a linen mist if I’m changing the bed. I’ve always loved Yardley’s Classic Rose & Lavender perfumes, but this one is my new favourite! It’s pretty, soft, floral, uncomplicated and lovely. It feels lovely… and for the price, it’s an absolute gem!
