Why you'll love it
If you aren’t familiar with the use of iris in perfume, let “Iris Cendre” be a portal into the soul of this highly prized material. If you’re picturing a springtime petal bouquet, think again: iris is traditionally used for its roots — a woody, vegetal, and slightly fruity-powdery ingredient that is aged after harvesting until its cost rivals gold. “Iris Cendre” feels like a dreamlike visit to the roots of a blossoming iris before they’re unearthed from the ground. It is velvety, buttery, fluffy, earthy-green, almost fudgey in texture, conjuring an aesthetic at the intersection of surrealist excess, early punk fashion, and breathtaking botanical beauty (think Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Iris van Herpen trading notes). It feels like an imaginative history of nature, as drawn in a Victorian handbook or photographed in visceral virtual reality, which somehow wears as comforting as cashmere.
