LabSolue presents its olfactory celebration of Violetta (Violet).

When spring has sprung, this small Flower gracefully announces it by blooming with a joyful and soft scent throughout Italy. Symbol of modesty and grace, as the shy blue-violet blossoms hide among the dark heart-shaped Leaves. What a surprise! What a delight! Discovering a bunch in the grass makes us believe to breathe in all the scents of spring in one. Sweet rhapsody of smell that penetrates all the senses.

An Essence made of Violet Flowers and Leaves, enhanced by fruity notes of Raspberry and musky nuances of Patchouli.

Curiosity: Violet has been a central note in Perfumery since the 19th century: favored by Napoleon Bonaparte to the point to be referred as “Caporal la Violette” and by his second wife Duchess Maria Luigia who started the successful violets cultivation and processing in Parma. The image of the Violet is inseparably connected with the name of Maria Luigia. Her love for this graceful flower was deep: she also used it, and in particular its colour, as a personal mark. It was she who encoraged research by the monks at the Monastery of the Annunciata who, after long and patient work, succeeded in obtaining an essence from the flower and its leaves which was identical to that of the Violet.

Good to know
LabSolue 11 Violetta (Violet) Eau de Parfum is handcrafted in Italy. For us, the Made in Italy is not only a choice of excellence, but also a commitment towards the community.

The fragrance is vegan, and gender free. For its formulation we exclusively select and use alcohol grain-derived from European sources. It does not contain artificial colorants, its color is solely due to the natural ingredients of the essence.

The fragrance is enclosed in a transparent glass bottle with a contemporary design, elegantly minimal - inspired by the original design of the Marvin perfume bottles - designed and made to last over time, refillable and recyclable. Equipped with a metallic pump that is easily screwed and unscrewed, which makes both the refill and recycling process possible and simple. The cap is made in Italy from a high-quality recyclable metal alloy. It features an engraving on the top with the historical Marvin brand symbol: a tiny alembic with the letter m. A detail that is a tribute to the origins and to the family history.

The packaging, including the external and internal parts, is made entirely of paper, to ensure simple and correct recycling. For the same reason, we have chosen not to protect the box with cellophane. The paper we use is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, to guarantee its origin from responsibly managed forests, and is recyclable.

All this to respect and promote the social and ecological needs of present and future generations.

LabSolue: from Laboratory and Absolute, two fundamental aspects to the art of perfumery blended to create olfactory beauty.

From the emphasis on expertise, to the use of Nature's finest ingredients, LabSolue Essences are born.

The Perfumer

Catherine Selig

From an early age, Catherine Selig knew she was going to become a perfumer. She draws her inspiration from her great-grandfather, the Maitre Gantier Parfumeur Meinrad Hilfiger, who headed his perfume house in Switzerland, creating distinctive, high-quality fragrances in the 19th century for royal families and influential elites. After discovering and studying her great-grandfather’s formulas book and distillation cabinet, Catherine perfected her own unique art of perfumery through intensive education at France’s best perfumery schools (ISIPCA in Versailles with an internship in Grasse) and subsequent training on the job in important international fragrance houses. Catherine focuses on creating unique fine fragrances that blend individual tastes with her own creativity, producing one-of-a-kind, luminous scents that inspire the senses and the imaginations of those who wear them.
