Van Cleef & Arpels Feerie EDT ( Ondine)

The Feerie fragrance has been a big hit for Van Cleef and Arpels and they now have an EDT version. They call the EDT Ondine, but you won't actually see that name on the bottle. It will say EDT but Ondine is the fairy inspiration and a way to differentiate between thet two formulas. Ondine is the delicate fairy.

The EDT is naturally a bit lighter but still a pretty scent. There seems to be less violet here than the EDP ( although violet is listed as bot top and middle notes) and more aquatic, wet notes. As it dries down some fruit notes( rapsberry, lemon) come out and it becomes a bit sweeter and then the final drydown has a a musky, floral but soft scent.

Feerie EDT is $ 120.00 for 100ml, $ 85.00 for 50 ml and exclusively at Neimans, Bergdorfs, and Van Cleef and Arpels boutiques as of now.

Full note list:

Top Notes: A joyful blend of crispy green Violet Leaves interlaced with sparkling Italian Lemon and juicy wild Raspberry introduces the enchanting freshness of springtime.
Heart Notes: An airy floral bouquet combines the innocence of Parma Violets and the allure of Rose Absolute enhanced by a breeze of dewy Jasmine.
Base Notes: A soft and sensual combination of Musk, Benzoin and Sandalwood reveals a radiant and smiling trail.
