Most reviewers say that this smells like roots and dirt in the opening. I don’t get that, probably because I’m not a gardener. What I get is a well-blended but spare mix of iris, incense, and...

Some time ago I was gifted a bottle of Iris Silver Mist by a dear friend. I have had it in my parfum cupboard for months untouched. Tonight I was rummaging around trying to decide what to wear...

I have the travel flask of this from Serge Lutens, a format I really do not like. Since I also have Fourreau Noire (I regret my FN purchase altogether as it is throat choking,y powdery) in this...

This is a Serge that I am definitely not impressed with. It smells exactly like fresh, earthy dirt to me and it doesn't last long enough on me to appreciate any of the other notes in it. Happy...

Is this fragrance actually made to be worn? I still don't know the answer since I bought it some months ago (and I wear it on and off). Maybe I will not find the answer, as this fragrance is weird...

This is one of my favorites--an absolute original. It's evocative of irises blooming in damp dirt on a cold spring night----in a graveyard.

Opens with a fresh, wet, cool, and sweet-rooty carrot note that is utterly delicious and unique. This quickly morphs into a salty play-dough-like, ever so slightly makeupey iris which then dries...

If I could only get myself this one here in the states. I managed to purchase a decant of this. I've reapplied it about 4 times today because I love the first blast! ADORE it! Starts out cold...

Rooty, muddy iris plant freshly taken out of ground. It still has the dampness of autumn earth. I don't get the "silver" part, to me, it's between green and brown. It somehow gives me a feeling of...

When I visited the purple, spooky SL boutique in Paris, I was determined to walk away with a full bottle. Problem is, although I can appreciate the craftsmanship of a great oriental or woods,...

Pure distilled iris. It’s clear, still-in-the-garden iris. No powder, no other flowers. Yes, there is a rooty earthiness at first. On me it quickly becomes a gentle, whispery floral. The...

There is something foody, earthy vegetable-like about it. Slightly plasticky. If an organic hair conditioner from an eco shop smelt like this, that would be fine. To pay what Lutens charges for...

"Ghostly" someone said below. Yep, I can see that. At first when I spritzed I was repelled - it smelt like new white plastic or something. Now it's getting warmer, but it's still not that...

Notes: orris root, galbanum, cedar, sandalwood, clove, vetiver, musk, Chinese benzoin, incense and white amber. This fragrance opens with a blast of cold, bitter orris root. The butter's...

ISM is one of my favourite iris scents. Having read several times that people find it rather cold I must say I cannot confirm that from my experience. On me this scent becomes cuddly and warm,...

I suspect that when it comes to iris scents it may be a two horse race between this one and 28 La Pausa. Although I dearly love the Chanel, and LP is more of a 'natural' iris, I still have to go...

This is exactly what I was looking for. A cold, dry fragrance that never gets skanky, just retains that icy, ghostlike quality. There was one short period in the drydown where it almost froze my...
