The opening blast presents a warm mix of labdanum, rose and a slightly sweetish spicy undertone - with a glowing warmth but nonetheless with hints of crispness owing to the labdanum and added touches of patchouli.

In the drydown a herbal character emanates, and now the myrrhe develops, although the latter never really dominates - this is no Myrrhe Ardente. This is accentuated by a pleasant incense undertone, which is never intrusive or cloying; this incense trends a touch towards the restrainedly ceremonial but is devoid of any campherous or medicinal characteristics on my skin. Towards the base the sweetness is a bit more prominent, albeit not in one's face but more discrete, and this all peters out very slowly.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and seven hours of longevity - but for the last couple of hours it remains very close to my skin.

A lovely autumnal creation, with a nicely done and rich entrée with good touches of originality, and a drydown that is more restrainedly gentle but pleasant, albeit close to my skin towards the end. 3.25/5.

The opening of this perfume is warm, rosey & resinous, in a way reminiscent of the original Monsoon. After this, though, it soon begins to take it's own distinctive path. l detect a crisp, green note, rather like papyrus, which lends an unexpectedly cool freshness to the mix. ln the heart, there is a strangely bittersweet & astringent note, which l'm guessing is the myrrh. Two hours in, l get an impression of woods, & another hour later, l begin to notice the incense note as it all starts to warm up again. After four hours, just as l think l might actually like it, it all fades away.
l'm giving this one a neutral because l cannot decide how l feel about it yet. l was expecting something altogether warmer & spicier, & that bitter middle phase didn't quite work for me. lt may be that this will work better in the heat than in cold weather, & so l will be giving it another chance or three. l do think that it would work well on a man.

I so wanted to love this. I had a little on a tester card and on the strength of that I asked for some for Christmas. When I sprayed it on myself, it was so mind-blowingly overpowering that I had to go and try to wash it off. And I couldn't! It's one of theose scents which I can understand is beautiful on certain other people, but definitely not on me. I agree with the reviewer who said it evokes Christmas. That's a fabulous description of this fragrance. But it's too cloying and heavy for me. I like fragrances you can build up the strength in. I'm sitting here with a cloud of Lolita Lempicka around me, but that's only because I sprayed it so many times today. All was not lost, though, as I gave my unused Eau d'Iparie to a perfume loving aunt who totally adores it and says it takes her back to Majorca in the 1970s and a Spanish soap which was so beautiful she used to keep the wrapper in her drawer at home to perfume her lingerie.

What a gorgeous little present I received for Christmas. I thought it was gioing to open up very dry, dusty and nose tingling, but it's quite sweet and rosey with just a mere hint of patchouli. The drydown is where this fragrance is at though with the waxy labdanum, myrhh and vanilla coming in to their own. The end is a wonderful accord of notes, masterly blended.

A friend introduced Eau d'Iparie to me. On her skin it was magnificent and sofisticated. Then today I tried it on myself. First sniff: rose. Second sniff: myrr. Later: just a sweet sweet honey without any personality and most of all withou class. Not a hint of incence. Its a pity ... I liked it so much on my friend. This scent is a clear evidence of how important is to try perfumes on the skin!

Interesting! Applied with a nice warm patchouli and roses, not heavy. The patchouli dried off quickly (how patchouli acts as a top note, I will never know) and settled into an incense-spice fresh rose with a nice resiny base. Wears very close. Despite the patchouli disappearing too quickly, I am liking this a lot.
