    The initial notes of Iris Ganache are balmy and sweet. The balminess actually reminds me of some SL fragrances, e.g. La Myrrhe. The scent isn't similar but its "texture" is.

    The smell of iris is pronounced but surprisingly it does not have a powdery feeling to it. Instead it's perfectly entwined with the balmy notes. There's also something that creates a slightly plastic-like atmosphere and pulls the top notes away from the gourmand area. A few hours later the these notes have fainted away and the smell is now more edible. It definitely resembles white chocolate.

    I feel very comfortable wearing IG but I'm also afraid of getting too attached. What an ill-fated love story! It breaks my heart to know it's discontinued. Oh Guerlain, what have you done!

    Discontinued in 2012, Iris Ganache is a seven-tier wedding cake version of Après L'Ondée. The iris and vanilla notes are evenly matched at first, but be sure to have your cardiologist on speed dial for the gluttonously-sweet drydown.

    This falls into the gourmand arena, but is never too sweet to have anyone shy away from it. Cool iris meets semi sweet notes. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon along the way, which is a note I enjoy if not overwhelming, and then a continuing warmth of some vanilla. This is what you get.

    A very pleasant ride and it smells good. A thumbs up for this one even though I prefer something like Bois Farine for a gourmand iris, or even something like SL Douce Amere (which is not iris dominant) for my cool vs. warm gourmand fix.

    Try it out if this type of fragrance suits you. But at this price point, I will not personally reach further.

    Iris. The flower in particular. Yes, there's buttery, earthy orris, but there is also the flower. In fact, this almost comes across a soliflor for me, floral as in the actual flower, as opposed to an abstracted,poetic evocaation of the flower. Much more blunt than your usual Guerlain. Sort of a blowsier Après L'Ondée.

    Could it be possible to have an iris-based chocolate, which lacks the sweetness associated with the second ingredient? If so, take this new creation and place in a glass full of cognac. This is the opening of Iris Ganache, and so it remains until the end (decreasing the intensity of some notes, like cognac that appears only in the opening), faithful to the name. A feminine scent that could easily be shared with the opposite sex.

    The sweetest and most intense of the line, Iris Ganache is one where the main note and the theme is clear from the beginning until the end. The Iris here has an aroma that makes me think of cake dough, exactly like the one on Comme des Garcons Sticky Cake. It`s an Iris dipped in creamy chocolate and in a sweet violet-heliotropin accord. The combination of notes makes you think sometimes in an intenser Apres L`Ondee and sometimes in a less agressive Insolence. Beautiful scent, but quite hard to wear if you don`t enjoy sweet fragrances. Leaves an intensive trail, so be careful when applying it...
