Iris Silver Mist Eau de Parfum

Iris Silver Mist Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Serge Lutens. The notes of this fragrance are Orris root, galbanum, sandalwood, cedar, clove, vetiver, musk, benzoin, incense, white amber


More iris, more, more, more, Serge Lutens famously urged Maurice Roucel when he was composing Iris Silver Mist. Legend has it that poor Maurice went back to the lab and, in his desperation, threw every known iris material into the formula, including a little-used iris nitrile called Irival. What emerged chrysalis-like from this chaotic lab experiment was a wonder of nature and a work of art.
Iris Silver Mist smells entirely like a root freshly torn from the ground, caked with earth, dew, and ice. Its purity is lung-filling and green – as bracing as cold water running in a brook. Between the iced, milky roots of the topnotes and the cool musk in the base, clove and benzoin lend the texture a spicy, dusty feel that almost approaches human warmth. But make no mistake ? Iris Silver Mist is as brutally pure as a block of ice melting slowly in a forest on the Russian Steppes. As close to wearing a piece of art as you’re likely to get.
Please note that Palais Royal Collection bell jars are splash bottles
