Won-der-ful. I completely agree with the previous reviewers, this is one of the best rose-iris ever, extremely sophisticated, feminine and radiant, extremely luxurious and bold, utterly sensual and classy. I loved to test it thoroughly. Ibitira is nothing but an irresistible classic archetype of an extremely charismatic type of woman. The fruity (i detect both lemon and orange magistrally modulated) and slightly decadent rose-iris combo is highly soaring in the air and stands over a musky and cedary base that finally morphs in to a velvety sort of floral-powdery soapiness. Inhaling the smell from your wrist you notice that the whiff is almost balsamic in a dry-powdery way with talky-neutral (cosmetics type) undertones exuding from a well calibrated amber-vanilla in its link with the powdery woods. I detect a sort of powdery soapiness rather than a final creaminess cause i suppose that the touch of vanilla is minimal and the base is characterized mostly by dusty woods and musk. Just at the end in the almost dry-talky powder i catch a soft violet touch with green undertones and orangy nuances. At distance (after a couple of hours) you don't detect the powder but a multifaceted floral (iris-violet) wake with fruity and green sparks and a white musky radiance. Stunning.
What can i say about this one!
The extent to which i love it, i am reluctant to use it too much
so i wont develop a normal nose to it and might hate it later!
The best Iriss scent evern in my openion!
My favorite Xerjoff, and possibly, the best of rose and iris scent ever, bar-none, in the whole perfume history. Wonderful, excellent, can't get enough of it. Can't get the whole bottle either -- out of my price range -- but I am definitely savouring my little sample and will get decants when I am out.
Steer clear if you are afraid of masterpieces.
