Pierrette: "figue × violette"



Pierrette is the sweet green scent of violets in bloom; the tantalizing aroma of a ripe fig plucked straight from the branch; a captivating hint of sandalwood gently floating on the summer breeze. Its delicate fragrance is perfect for a relaxing evening.


  • Top - Mandarin, cassis, cardamom
  • Middle - Violet, fig leaf
  • Base - Fig milk, vetiver, sandalwood, musk

Citrus reticulata, commonly known as the mandarin or mandarin orange, is one of the original 'wild' citrus fruits and one of the three citrus fruits from which all modern hybrids are descended. Like other citrus fruits, essential oil is obtained via a process called expression wherein the outer peel is squeezed in presses. Mandarin essential oil is very sweet with honeyed facets. 

Santalum austrocaledonicum or New Caledonian sandalwood. Native to the islands of New Caledonia and Vanuatu in the South Pacific, Santalum austrocaledonicum possesses an aroma profile that is exceedingly close to that of Mysore sandalwood: rich, sweet-woody with an unparalleled complexity and depth and a smooth, creamy drydown. Moreover, New Caledonian sandalwood is sustainably-grown and ethically harvested to ensure the long-term viability of this truly remarkable material. 

It may come as a surprise that the robust, woody aroma of vetiver oil is obtained from the roots of a type of grass. Owing to its pleasant aroma and excellent fixative properties, vetiver has enjoyed a long history of use in perfumery. Its unique woody-earthy aroma possesses a certain degree of freshness with facets of hazelnut and grapefruit. 

The sweet fragrance of violet flower is legendary. Within its unassuming blooms lies a woody-fruity aroma of staggering proportions with enough gravitas and emotional resonance to bring a grown man to tears. Of course, such beauty doesn’t come without a price; quite literally, in the case of violet. Luckily, two German chemists, Tiemann and Krüger, identified the molecular source of this beauty in 1893 when they discovered ionones. Unlike violet absolute, ionones could be produced on a large scale relatively inexpensively, ushering in a Golden Age of violet fragrances. To this day, ?-ionone and ?-ionone continue to be preferred over violet absolute making Marie Jeanne’s compositions the exception to the rule. 

Like most citrus fruits, the bergamot orange is a hybrid—genetic research has indicated that the bergamot is most likely a hybrid of the lemon and bigarade orange. Production of bergamot is mostly limited to the province of Reggio di Calabria on Southern Italy's Ionian coast, where climatic and soil conditions are favorable to the cultivation of this small, pear-shaped citrus fruit. Bergamot oil is expressed from the ripe peel of the fruit and possesses a citrusy aroma that is variously described as bitter and tart with mild spicy facets and a complex aromatic elements.

Strivezy was born from a simple idea - high quality products from nice people. Our goal is to not just deliver luxury items and goods, but to find the best products for our customers and deliver them with outstanding service. From home goods and travel accessories to unique gifts and personal care items, Strivezy is a creative company continually looking for ways to improve our customers' lives - from new products to top customer service, you are our main concern!

Our small, family-owned and operated business, based in the mid-west, is the outpouring of passion around products that are not just high quality, but also carefully and thoughtfully produced. We’ve searched far and wide to find everything from soaps, luggage, leather, personal care and more made by the unique, conscious brands. 

We’re doing things our own way, so you know the products you order are different than what you can find anywhere else. Our range of products is so unique you won’t be able to find them on other sites, and we are continually working to find new and undiscovered products and companies to add to our ever growing collection. 

At Strivezy, we believe in our products - if we don’t use it ourselves, it’s not in our shop. We strive for all of our personal care products to be natural, clean, or sustainable; we search for brands who are manufacturing responsibly and working to give back to the communities they’re a part of. Whenever we can, Strivezy sources products from American manufacturers. We don't source from China, our goal is to find products that are from local, small, or undiscovered brands. As you shop around Strivezy, keep an eye out - we make note on all of our products about where they’re manufactured - so you know exactly where your purchase is coming from

We started this company with the goal of being a bit different and that’s because of you - our customers. As Strivezy took shape, we knew it had to be a different experience for our shoppers.
