April Violets Perfume by Yardley London, A classic, old-fashioned floral scent introduced in 1913, April Violets by Yardley has timeless appeal for women of all ages. The top note of violets is assertive and fresh without overpowering. Middle notes of pelargonium, lily of the valley, and jasmine enrich the floral bouquet with warm tones. The dry off is resonant with base notes of musk and vanilla, imparting an earthy conclusion to this otherwise light and delicate fragrance. It has a soft to moderate sillage making it appropriate for work as well as more intimate occasions. Moderate longevity will take you through a long day with a little scent to spare.
