Houbigant Iris des Champs EDP 100ml
Inspired by the dynamic raw material, numerous perfumers have succeeding in unveiling the earthy characteristics of the iris, but none have truly explored its veritable flower scent.
Iris des Champs takes a completely different approach by creating an olfactory interpretation of the flower in a philosophy inspired by in-house French perfumer, Paul Parquet, creator of the nineteenth-century, genre-defining Fougère Royale.
Its aroma is extraordinarily present and volatile, with powdered facets deploying wooded, green accents evocative of the comforting scent of warm bread.
The scent is transportative, redolent of blossoming iris fields across the Tuscan countryside, flooded in spring sunshine, underpinned by voluptuous woods and musk.
The symphonic overture evokes the freshness of morning dew beneath spring's incipient sunshine with bergamot, lily of the valley and pink pepper.
The sensual heart pulses with an alluring bouquet of iris butter, iris absolute, rose absolute, jasmine sambac absolute and ylang ylang essence extra.
The velvety, smooth finale concludes with silken, resonant tonalities of sandalwood, amber, vanilla and musk.
