Summary: Nice Work! a lovely light rooty iris witht he same dolorous quality as Iris Silver Mist. Not as complex and not as long lasting, but a lovely everyday fragrance for iris lovers. I much prefer this to Ferre or Iris Poudre although for a fresh iris bouquet I would still go for Bas de Soie.
Summary: It's interesting to read that the carrot note seem predominate to so many of us. Huh. We're all so different, thank heavens. I get iris, iris, and more iris. I can live with that. For some, this is a summer frag; for me it's all winter coziness that sooths my tired soul a bit as I bite the bullet, bundle up, and grumpily stomp out the door to face a nasty wind that chills to the bone. I bought a small bottle of this unsampled and on a whim and lucked out for once.
Summary: Lovely iris fragrance. Sweeter and more springlike than others at the beginning; it settles into a warm iris scent that has hint of the pastry-like note that iris has sometimes Far drydown is soft iris; not powdery, not metallic.
Summary: I think of this as a good everyday Iris scent that is more interesting and refined than Prada's. It's a soliflore/radix and on me is quite uncomplicated. I certainly don't get the decaying bag of carrots some reviewers complain of. To me this scent is strongly reminiscent of good fabric conditioner/detergent - it smells clean and airy.
Summary: Lots of wearers of Hiris have commented that it's a "wear anytime, anywhere" fragrance, and after giving it a few chances, I would definitely agree. I bought this unsniffed, and the first time I sprayed it on, I thought "Whew, carrots. Ew?" But I tried it a few more times, eventually spritzing enough on to last me through a day at work, and boy, did it smell nice throughout the day.
Summary: Lovely even though it's only a single-note perfume. Extremely lasting on me with impressive sillage. It starts off with all the carroty/rooty/damp earth weirdness that is iris, after about 10 seconds, all that disappears and it morphs into a very pleasant, tart but not overtly green floral. It seems perfect for those girls/women who are between well, being girls and women, mature, feminine, without being TOO mature, or trying to be someone you are not.
Summary: To my nose, this is a smell alike for Apothia L. It is a dry, rooty iris with a touch of bergamot for cheeriness. I like it very much, but I still find L'Artisan's Iris Pallida to be the gold standard for irises in this genre.
Summary: If art had a scent... then Van Gogh's Iris would be Hermes Iris. Hiris is etheral -- wet and very earthy. I'd say it's an elemental scent-- specifically air, water and earth. It's wet -- earthy as in dirt and roots.. and airy--- ozonic on my skin almost (it's the musk I think). There's nothing firey about this scent.. except on my skin which is a Pitta (aryveydic) .. which is very firey and Hiris does something magical on my skin; it morphs into a completion...
