A nice iris note start it off, simple but well executed and freshens up a basic bergamot is the background.

The drydown adds more floral underpinnings,with a violet that is characterised by a nonspecific woodsy undercurrent. Jasmine is another important contributor to this potpourri. Interestingly, whilst this is very much a soft and floral mix, is is not really particularly sweet on my skin.

The base is comparatively dull: the floral components gradually recede, and a very synthetic and generic white musk is added to the nonspecific woodsiness - a bit of a letdown this later stage surely is.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scent sports a very agreeable iris-centred floral core, with the later stages unfortunately slipping in their overall development due to their generic-synthetic nature. Overall just hanging in there to achieve a - just - positive score owing to its first half. 3/5

A short blast of citrus gives way to an array of subdued florals. The florals somehow don't give off an overly potpourri feminine scent instead leaving it unisex leaning masculine. It could be used in an office or formal wear. Well done!

The main player in this is violet. The iris seems to be a background note which makes this a clean and safe scent for Men and women. There is a jasmine note in this which does the fragrance justice without being too feminine for Men. 7/10

There's an exciting iris note in the top, but it's quickly overwhelmed by a harsh chemical fixative smell, maybe ambroxan.

I like this.
But...it is a bit feminine. It smells like it belongs in a perfume for a woman but it is clean, sweet and dare I say sporty enough that a man can pull it off. I think the target audience desires less of that obvious masculinity. Then again, all of the fragrances in this particular line are joyously sexless!

What an amazing scent with a novel accord brought about by Iris, Violet and Bergamot. This scent is classy and surprisingly clean and fresh without being soapy or citrusy... Guess it can be called ethereal.

Another great scent (next to Indonesian Oud, Javanese Patchouli and Haitian Vetiver) in this high quality collection by Zegna!
