Summary: Trashy synthetic weak watery iris with carroty undertones. One of the worst. Luca Turin (in "The Guide" which so many MUA'ers worship)also considers this to be a crappy fragrance. As we all know, Luca Turin is always right ...what Turin says goes.
Summary: Hiris is pure powdered metal in my mouth. I can literally feel it on my tongue and can hardly breathe after inhaling it. I had such high hopes, now completely dashed. The bottle is gorgeous - frosted, sapphire blue Hermès tower. Hands down the worst perfume experience I have ever encountered.
Summary: Hiris The carrot opening note in Hiris really throws me for a loop. It’s a flat carroty note that smells the way a fat, rooty, pithy, past-the-harvest carrot tastes. My cook in Pakistan made a fantastic carrot soup where he “turned up the flavor” of the carrots with lemon, chile, and cilantro. This is what I want to do to with Hiris -- I want to brighten the carrot opening with citrus and chile.
Summary: several times i have sprayed this on my wrist purely for the entertainment value of reliving my first spritz of it; never had a fragrance so clearly conjured up a terrifying picture of the person i feared wore it - an older woman, bitterly cold, shallow, a bird-in-a-guilded-cage. obviously, this is silly ;) but it did hover cooly around me in a cold, poisonous dome.
Summary: Okay, I just tried this at the perfume counter and I couldn't even smell it when the lady sprayed it on me. Even after I breathed long and deep into the bag of coffee beans to clear my head. They may as well slap a $60 price tag on a bottle of musty water.
Summary: Can't wear it, can't stand the faintest whiff of it from the bottle or on other people, even though I love fresh irises. Sadly, Hiris is one of the few fragrances that make me physically sick.
