Iris Absolute. The regal Prima Ballerina. Delicacy in her every movement. The precision is resolute. On stage the lights go up with bergamot. A flood of radiant transparency. A whirl of pink, the energy of peppercorn and amber pirouettes make the whole rounded, arrondi. From the wings, the Iris makes an entrance, reaching high to bow down low, lofty softness and powdery grace, but Orris root must come back to earth. A pas de deux with Himalayan Jasmine. Majestic femininity, the strength of flight. Leather hints at the back stage preparations: the flesh of ballet shoes that fall and rise point-to-point on sandalwood.
Vanilla and benzoin remind us that we are also skin to skin.
I first came upon this perfume at Epcot in Disneyworld. I had seen and sniffed many different and beautiful perfumes that day. However, this scent jus...t stood out and stayed on my mind. Every so often I would sniff the handkerchief the demonstrator had given me. It was was of the most pleasing perfumes I had ever smelled and the scent seemed to get more beautiful.....it just captivated me. I put it on my night stand that night at the resort and woke up smelling this wonderful scent and realized it came from the handkerchief! That scent lingered on that cloth for days! It’s not an overpowering scent, just beautiful and feminine and oh so captivating!... more
