Nice everyday aroma

Summary: Perfumes are personal. Everyone has their own taste. I prefer Italian or French products because I know they are derived from natural sources ~ not always true in American perfumes. I suggest you go to a perfume counter and try different aromas and test them on your skin.
Summary: Infusion d'Iris is not the type of perfume I would fall for, but well... it got me. While building a perfume collection one realizes that although a particular olfactory group will be the favorite, there are others that have their time and place too. Opens with the refreshing kick of orange and neroli. Then gradually gets more soapy and powdery, smells airy, cool and clean. But Infusion d'iris is more than citrus, soap and powder.
Summary: This is my sleep good, feel good, cozy perfume. I just love it, could baaaathe in it. Iris and a hint of violet, more I usually don't smell before succumbing to sleep. Every night, as I am surrounding myself with it - sometimes I light up the candle too - the whole room smells good. If I am not already sleeping by the time the base notes come out, there is a touch of neroli and something woody. But all in all, the scent is full of the wonderful powdery and creamy iris.
Summary: This scent starts citric and fresh, but without the lemon and bergamot. I smell a freshly peeled orange. The galbanum makes it tart and spicy. "Infusion d'Iris" Eau de Parfum radiates an incredible warmth as if it were the "Nice Weather God" himself. The image of a holiday in Tuscany comes to mind. As expected, the Iris now takes the floor. But it is only a guest appearance. The scent, in my opinion, is built around the spicy orange.
Summary: I remember when this fragrance came out several years ago and i remember trying it several times. Either i didnt like it or i just ignored it completely. I got a sample of this fragrance sent to me a few days ago so am now trying it again. This time i love it. Infusion D'Iris is much more floral than i originally remember it being. I have the EDP. Maybe i was trying to EDT when it first came out but i dont remember it being as floral as it is now.
Summary: Since there's no entry for the Eau de Toilette, I just thought I'd say this as a PSA: THE EDT AND THE EDP DO NOT SMELL THE SAME. I tested them side by side today (one on each wrist) and they could be completely different fragrances. The EDT is soapy, like freshly washed skin or fancy laundry detergent. It's very pleasant, if you like soapy scents. Some of the notes of the EDP are present under the surface, but it's mostly soap.
Summary: Iris Pallida, according to the box, is the sort of Iris that was used for this earthy green floral. Now, i don´t know what is the olfactive difference between the varieties, but this white flower iris smell here rather pale and transparent. Don´t get me wrong. I am a huge admirer of paleness. The pre-raphaelite women are pale, and so is the fur of my cat. Pale is the light of a rainy day (just like today) and i could write a long list of many favourite pale things.
Summary: What a lovely and modern sheer iris this is. It's so soft, companionable and knowingly discreet, that I'm sort of amazed that it 1) is a very successful fragrance, and 2) was made in the last ten years. After wading through the sea of froot 'n' musk prom bombs at my local Nordstrom's, finding this was a charming surprise indeed. The iris here is of the pastilles and morning mist variety, and the incense drydown is more dry and aromatic than resinous and spicy.
Summary: I love this perfume. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it doesn't have a lot of staying power. It is fresh and light and perfect for spring/summer. I've gotten several compliments on it. I just purchased my 3rd bottle.
