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 whence I accidentally tipped over the bottle, and it fell onto some clean towels I store in the cupboard. I thought, thank heavens it did not break! Then I thought, perhaps now is the time to finally …Read more

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 format, I often cannot tell the difference (opaque black plastic). The 30 ml refills are tall and flimsy and I worry that they will break if I remove them from the black container. And the nozzles …Read more

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 for those that can call this their holy grail; but for me, I call it an expensive scrubber.

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 from beginning to the end (I mean, who wants to smell like an iris root roting in damp earth amongst some random patches of grass and metal scraps? ....me actually, from time to time). But is it …Read more

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 down to a hypnotic beeswax and leather scent that somehow manages to be both comfortingly soft and throat-ticklingly sharp. (The reviews that mentioned 'vapours' and 'oil paint' were …Read more

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 but then warms down. When I walk by people I wonder if they think I smell remarkable because I DO!!!! Please make it available to us along with La Myrrhe!

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 being a gardener working outdoors for too long.
I love the smell but not sure if I want to smell like it.

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, they're not really my style. Then I found Iris Silver Mist, which smells like you've taken a whole irs plant, dirt clinging to roots, thrown it in a food processor, and inhaled. It's …Read more

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 coolness is refreshing on hot days, and the perfume is mellow throughout. This is iris as a running stream. Low sillage, very good longevity.

Unique, not really like anything I can …
