Violet's second limited edition fragrance, CYCLE 002, is radiantly austere in its citrus-spice opening, yet intimately cocooning in the warm, resinous drydown of incense and woods. A modern, atmospheric fragrance designed to evoke the vastness of a futuristic terrestrial desert, where fallen skyscrapers are uncovered by arid winds. 

From Violet
Radiant as a summer sun, bergamot gleams proudly atop CYCLE 002. Its black pepper, akin to a dry whirlwind, carries the spicy intensity of vast desert expanses within its vortex. Within this olfactory panorama, chili and clove tenderly measure each other. Their union begets a delicate equilibrium, a dance between tension and comfort. The essence of cumin introduces an earthy note, a distant envoy from a far greener realm, whilst incense transforms into warm, incisive resin. Here, there's no mysticism, no prayer, no offering. The sole deity is the desert itself, potent, absolute, and unyielding. CYCLE 002 is an invitation to anticipate, predict and reinvent.

In a place once resonant with the echoes of footsteps and voices, only the soft murmur of the wind will remain. The dunes will supplant the skyscrapers, concealing within their depths the remnants of an entire civilization.”

Violet x Bleg Collaboration
The illustration of CYCLE 002 was designed by Bleg, an artist from Lyon who is known for his masterful use of Posca markers to create clean and elegant compositions. His style, a harmonious blend of abstraction and minimalism, transports viewers and encourages their imaginations to wander along his lines. Bleg grants each individual the power to interpret his work freely, inviting us all to wear the artist’s cap and explore the depths of creativity.
