Anyone tried it? I want to try the Palma Violets one but it's quite pricey!

I haven't yet. I like the sound of the Parma violet one too. Shame you can't just buy it in the shops really.

I have, the Parma Violets is really lovely. Makes the whole of the upstairs smell great when the washing is hanging out to dry.
It is really pricey though, I paid around £5 and the tub you get is quite small. I got mine with free delivery as I was buying other stuff too. You do need to use a fair amount of the powder (they recommend 2 scoops for soft water, 3 for medium and 4 for hard) so the most number of washes you can get from the tub is 15.
If they sold big boxes like the ones of Fairy/Persil etc, I would buy them, but I won't be buying another tub as I think it just works out too expensive. It's a shame as it really does smell lovely!

Yes yes yes! Had the original which was fine, did the same job as my fairy, but bought Parma violet and my house smells like the Lush shop.
There's a guide on the back with how many scoops but I find that's too much- too overpowering and nappies are clean with less, a lot less, so use about half-3/4 o what it says. Says on tub 15 washes but mine will last far longer. Worth it for sure

Just to echo what Missus S says, we live in a hard water area but only use 2 scoops and it works fine. Still means I'm only getting 15 washes though *sob*
