The roots of the iris plant are peeled by hand, washed, air-dried, and ultimately, after a long period of storage, distilled. It takes six years to produce the essence, which makes iris one of the most precious raw materials in perfumery. Its delicate, powdery fragrance evokes shades of violet, mimosa and carrot with buttery and woody accents.
CUIR D’IRIS brings out the sensual, enveloping fragrance of iris in a blend of various woods, balsams and musks. The end result, a gentle, voluptuous, textured leather fragrance, yields a trail as comfortable – and addictive! – as a cashmere sweater.
