I can't get past Perfume Shrine's review of Yardley Iris where a strong resemblance to Hiris was highlighted. I went through two bottles of Yardley Iris using it as a cheap splash, suffering through the lavender opening until the soft woody iris came through, and as Elena promised, it was very similar to Hiris. As with Hiris it didn't adhere to skin and snuck away. Other …Read more

Love this. When first applied, it does remind me of carrots covered in earthy dirt. But it is oh so nice once that fades away. It smells sophisticated and richly feminine. Others complain that it doesn't last long, but for me it does. Try this if you like Prada Infusion d'Iris. This one willl knock that one right out of the water. It is quietly reserved, but elegant at the same …Read more

Hiris is a introverted elegance a well-poised muse
never reveals herself within words nor action just
her scent of Iris, Hiris opens with it's homage the
Iris a flower a symbol of refinedness and modesty
a scent of cool orris earth adds to the sharp coldness
of the fragrance, the coriander subtle enough not to
cloy over the iris but noticeable in it's …

This is a beautiful, dry composition. Iris with a carrot, earth and ambrette. Ambrette's funny on me: in Chanel No. 18, it smells like vomit, like someone threw up on a bunch of flowers. I wrote a long since deleted review of the Chanel, indicating this was the main problem when I wore No 18. In Hiris, the feel of ambrette might be one of the factors that keep it from seeming too ephemeral …Read more

Not as iris-y as I was expecting. Opens with what seemed to me more of a lily note which made me wonder if I received the right sample. I suppose this is the carrot-y note everyone is talking about. This predominates over the iris. Not a bad fragrance: very cool and refined and nice for summer, but not particularly grand either. The bottle is very attractive with the gorgeous cobalt blue.

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. I find Hiris a bit fleeting but it was os cheap online that I can spray a lot - and I do

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 …Read more

Oh my !!! Wasn't expecting to like this at all, given that it is a light scent. But what hasn't been mentioned is that it is a fascinating scent. Really loving Hermes. While I do not love all their frags, there is no mistaking that they do not skimp on quality. Hiris goes on sharp, metallic with that unmistakable bitter carrot seed note (check out essential oils and you'll …Read more

Lovely iris fragrance. This doesn't seem nearly as sweet as many other iris fragrances, nor is it steely-cold. It's a neutral iris that is very easy to wear.

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. It lacks the drama of Iris Poudre, which is …Read more
