Revlon Parfumerie Wild Violets is a very dark purple creme with red and blue shimmer. The shimmer was much more noticeable in the sun in real life. I'd put the color in the same family as the magnificent Chanel Taboo. I believe I used 2 coats. The formula was good and it was easy to apply. Since it was very pigmented (enough to slightly stain my cuticles even after clean-up), I used 2 coats of base coat. It dried very shiny so I didn't have to use a top coat; it lasted until I removed it. Wild Violets, in my opinion, smells like very candied so it is a sweet scent. On the first day, I felt that it was strong and, at times, I felt a little overwhelmed. Generally, I don't wear perfume or body spray because I'm sensitive to some scents (especially those in cologne). However, by the second day, the scent died down considerably. Since I didn't use a top coat, I'm not sure if it would affect the scent, though I've read from other blogs that it doesn't.
Thanks for looking! See you on the other side of the day!
