Reviews of Iris Bleu Gris

It has the smell of good perfume from the 1980s (or even 1970s), the kind of thing I like, although it could use some civet, and more oak moss (the version I'm trying) to hit the highest heights.

I think the name should have been Green Iris Blues.
Starts of very green - I guess from the citrus and the roots (iris & vetiver)
And then it changes and gets earthier and sweeter. Roots and tonka/vanilla perhaps that bring on this accord.
Settles down to a nice rooty-green makeup scent.

VERY powerful Chypre. Iris is nuclear here, oakmoss assists. This could be a female fragrance in a very formal setting, soapy floral.

I cannot imagine that this will be the same as when I first bought it, before the formulas were changed, and things got, shall we say, less Jean LaPorte?

But when I did own it, it was the most sumptuous and breathtakingly elegant fragrance I'd ever worn...

Interesting cold, dry, herbal iris root opening. The opening, while fleeting, is probably the best part. The middle and base are dominated by a generalized "aftershave" style chypre feel with a bit of the doughy iris persisting. IBG has a good iris opening and is more rounded scent than say Iris Silver Mist, but not nearly as interesting.

Iris Bleu Gris is a marvelous, austere, icy herbal-iris scent, with a sour minty-citric hint blended with a warm base rich in iris' waxy and opulent rootiness. Fresh, metallic (perhaps a tad too much initially), warm and sensual at the same time. On the base there is also something musky-earthy, I guess oak moss, and slightly dusty and camphoraceous, perhaps benzoin or something equally belonging to '80s chypres realm. The clash between the angular, sour, zesty and even slightly ozonic head notes with the rooty heartiness of iris and woods is masterfully executed and really fascinating, even if a bit loud at its first stages, mostly due to citrus - challenging, but fascinating. As soon as it dries a bit it gets darker, coming closer to several '70s/'80s drydowns (I recalled the architectural gloominess of some Krizia's for instance, just with less leather). Except for a really few notes which reveal its age, Iris Bleu Gris has an irresistibly austere, elegant, grey presence – I don't get the "bleu" that much, but surely the "iris" and the "gris" are perfectly crafted. The iris is "all over" in a way that it makes everything smell warmer and gentler, even giving a touch of soap and powder to the rooty and mossy notes. Even if I keep smelling something "weird" all around (I guess that same citric-azure note of the beginning, which then morphs into some metallic dissonant feel that comes and goes), the texture is really intriguing, majestic and elusive, complex and classy. A must try!
