Iris absolute is one of the most noble ingredients in traditional perfumery. The warm, sensual, delicate scent is extracted not from the flower, but from its root. Here, Iris absolute is layered with notes of fresh violet, angelica, carrot seed cedar and grey amber. Rare, refined, sensual and discreet, Iris de Nuit is a perfectly balanced composition of this elegant and exquisite floral theme.

Eau de Parfum

Iris de Nuit is luxurious and subtle in its beauty. This formal fragrance imbues the wearer with a staid and steady aura.

Made in France

Iris de Nuit achieves freshness by turning to the earth, all the way to the roots. Amongst a medley of angelica seed, ambrette, and carrot seed, it respects the impact of iris absolute. An extract from the rhizome of the flower, it is altogether buttery and waxy, woody and dry, stemmy green, and sweetly floral. It is a precious material, valued for its complexity and cost. Its earthy richness is set against the crispness of cedarwood, which has the double effect of reiterating the dry sensation of the fragrance whilst amping up its spicy and textural facets. Iris de Nuit is indeed nocturnal – melancholic, tempestuous, and grey as it is inflected with violet, where its characteristic green and aquatic notes add lift and tenderness to an otherwise demure composition. Subtle touches of ambergris add not only warmth and composure, but a saline air – Iris de Nuit remains a reserved and cool scent, despite its addictive velvety touch. It celebrates ionones/irones, an essential constituent of orris oil which ranges from the sweet and fruity, to green, woody, and powdery, offering a delightful series of modulations when worn. It is a luxury in the register of texture.

Iris de Nuit - a unique take.

Iris is one of those polarizing notes in perfumery because of how my different ways it can be portrayed. It can come across make-up-y, lipsticky, spicy, dry, woody...but this version is more masculine and vegetal, in a good way. I think the notes of angelica and carrot seeds combine to give this effect. Very clever, but I would think you should try a sample before committing to a full bottle.
