An okay iris scent, not violet but iris with the usual woody stems and green hints, but it's not different enough to replace my beloved Iris Nuit or Infusion d'Iris. Wearable, sheer, nice. Eh.

Update: This one has reached HG status. It's truly stunning and it lasts all day, which we all know isn't always the case for L'Artisans. Just as I love the incomparable Iris Silver Mist, just as I love Calamity J and Mythique; I love Iris Pallida. My favorite iris is the Serge, but as we all know it isn't exactly the easiest scent to acquire.
If you find Calamity J a …

Notes: lily of the valley, orange blossom, Turkish rose, anise, violet leaves, cedar, vetiver, iris absolute, ambrette seed, white musk, gaïac wood and patchouli.

This fragrance opens with a delicate floral note (lily of the valley) sweetened by orange blossom. Woody notes along with anise create the impression of rich soil warmed by the spring sun. Iris absolute adds watery, green …

Somehow I was expecting the iris to be a bit more pronounced, but it sits in the middle of a heavy wood, and shimmers. It shimmers in a white way, like glittery white eyeshadow, or a piece of wood sitting on top of the snow, covered in little pieces of icy snow sparkling in the morning sun. It is quite pretty.

In the opening, I -sort of- disliked the anise note, it smelled a little …

Amazing. I know nothing about irises or iris perfumes, but I am in love with this fragrance. I'm embarrassed to say that when I first got a sample of this, I hated it. I thought it smelled like dry dirt. That was my impression - very dry. But this was when I was into fruitier scents. So I shelved it. For about a year. Then one winter day, I was thinking that I needed to try something …Read more

THE perfume for me. It has become part of me very quickly. The only perfume that my boyfriend ever noticed - this is when I knew I HAD to have it...

I tried all iris perfumes I could find, but none fits me better than this one! I absolutely love it!

Oh, this is heart-breakingly beautiful. If you love Iris scents, this is the best I've tried. This is not powdery iris like Prada IDI, nor is it a slightly sweetened iris like Iris Taizo (both of which I love!), rather it is a very dry, earthy, woody iris that is just addicting. I admit this was not love at first sniff but after testing it several times, I couldn't get enough …Read more

Again, I have to thank a super-generous MUAer for swapping a decant of this precious nectar.
I like the Iris note, but Iris Pallida is much more than an iris perfume.
It is complex, starts very crisp with a rubber/medicinal note (the anise perhaps), that can be a bit weird and misleading but then it is airy and light just to morph into a very cozy, powdery, close to skin scent.
The …

Absolutely beautiful fragrance, I think probably the nicest iris I've tried yet. And yes, I agree that a man could wear it too. Unfortunately, all of the L'Artisan fragrances I've sampled, including this one, are so fleeting on me! They are intoxicating, short lived experiences - but I just can't justify shelling out $$$$$ for them. Maybe one day when I win the lottery! …Read more

Wow, I'm in heaven! I had a little sample of this, and it smells so delicious, I just had to buy the full size. Yes, all $295 worth! I have never spent that much on a fragrance, but this is just so amazing!

It starts off very woody, almost like cedar blocks for your clothes! But then it turns into a beautiful, sweet iris. I love iris scents, and before I spent all this money …
