Naomi Goodsir – Iris Cendré
This beautiful scent opens with a flurry of fresh, citrusy, and floral bergamot and mandarin, whetting the appetite for what is to come. Under the bright topnotes, one senses a subtle veil of warm spices – exquisite and liquid. There is an almost overflowing heart to this fragrance, filled to the brim as it is with aromatic incense, delicately fragrant violets, and an ultra-refined iris with a texture couched halfway between grey velvet and a delicate powder. The exquisite floral-incense heart rests gently on a sturdy oriental base of labdanum (rockrose resin), tobacco, and amber, its sensuality serving to anchor the lighter notes and round off this extravagant fragrance.
