This is by far my favorite iris scent. While most iris scents are really focused on the powdery orris root, this one really focuses on the scent of the bloom with it's fruity undercurrent. It has a gourmand twist with a hint of berry and licorice or anise perhaps.

I get the iris top note, but it doesn't last. Smells like patchouli at the end. Agree this could be a unisex fragrance. I wear it now and then. Love the pretty purple color and the bottle design.

I have to agree with others that don't find much iris in this Iris Noir, maybe just a hint of powder in the heart. But, instead, it's a happy, fruity and sweet little thing. The sweetness of berries, at first just a tad tart, carries almost throughout, where the sweetness of tonka takes over.

Neither are objectionable, maybe just not what I was expecting. This one is easy to wear, but you must enjoy sweet fragrances. It veered just a tad too far for me personally, but that's just a matter of each to their own taste.

I can't find any iris at all. A huge blast of purple berry, drying down to Tonka, which I love. It's not particularly feminine either and would wear just as well on a man. I'm on my second bottle.

I own this by accident. It hasn't any Iris quality to my nose. The first blast is a very simple synthetic black berry, the "noir". Kind of lollipop. O/k, then it squeezes something I don't really get. A bit of a sharp, perfumey hint on powdery iris root (orris). Later on, the room is filled with that black berry smell, and just that. I can't imagine to wear this. I can't imagine a woman to wear this, except fishing for compliments. This attempt is made here with no effort in quality, refinement, surprise. It's just loud. Sorry, no way.

Very nice, and for me, definitely unisex. This doesn't come across to me as anything specifically (others mentioned patchouli, but at most there is a hint of it, relative to a fragrance like Michael for Men), though it evokes an abstraction of blueberries. I avoid top notes so I can't speak to that, but the drydown is fairly quick, and then it's rather linear, though it has nice dynamism in its abstract way. As Luca Turin said, it has an herbal/aromatic quality, but the tonka/sweet qualities are quite strong, so it's not the kind of herbal fragrance I'm used to. It took me a while to enjoy it, because at first I didn't want to smell blueberries for several hours, but after wearing it a few times, I was able to appreciate it beyond that aspect. Sillage and longevity seem moderate to good.
