:lol: No, they were made with actual violets and I remember them, too (VERY sweet and VERY powdery feeling in the mouth, if I remember correctly). My mother used to have the original perfume made by Parma violets. It was called Violetta di Parma and they say that it was originally created for Napoleon's second wife by monks.

I've been around a lot of women that thought they knew it all. But I think Pajarita actually does.
as usual I'm impressed.
