Reviews of Vanille d'Iris

A just-right, cosmetic-note of a languid powdered iris. It floats around my person like a sophisticated, seemingly casual affectation. It is somewhat like a Chanel in that way.

Pleasant and pleasurable. How could someone not feel enveloped and polished in it, a little coddled, a little sexy? Not brash or in your face, it invites people to come to you, not like those fragrances that force your attention. In other words not loutish or histrionic.

A purr of a fragrance. Feminine and self-possessed.

Note: This fragrance makes my cat a little aggressive. He will bit and claw when he smells it.

Thick, dried, crumbly cake icing. Vanilla cake underneath. Almost pure, buttery iris. The vanilla isn't overly strong. Its scent changes to a perfume, less gourmand, rather quickly. Iris-y accord begins to pale, change over to a floral note of a different feel. A tinge of earthiness underneath.

Very linear. Pretty much a soliflore. Easy, breezy, summer delight.

Does what it says on the label. A straightforward sweetened orris root with a vanilla drydown. I can’t find much to say about this one, and I can’t say it does much for me. Seems to be made from nice materials, but that’s about it. Geza Schoen has done much more interesting work for this house.

The jet set doesn’t appeal to me. All that greed, narcissism and preening competitiveness – no thanks. But I will admit to being more susceptible to its airbrushed imagery – a kind of genteel pastel glam (we’re talking ancien not nouveau darling, do keep up) that is all about being immaculately distant. Vanille d’Iris has some of that quality, being probably the best lipstick iris I have encountered, subtle, lightly suedey, with a few puffs of ultra-light smoke hanging around its entrance. It’s not a perfume to focus upon, but one that moves around you like a fine haze. The vanilla is far recessed in the mix, a touch of sweet padding at the back that does not upset the sheerness. If one wants to feel discretely fabulous, like the kind of person who maintains a matte porcelain visage in the stinking heat, this is the one.

Vanille d'Iris. Vanilla Iris. No, not Vanilla Ice. Vanilla Iris. For a moment I did wish it was Vanilla Ice. At least the 1990s' one hit wonder had more hooks to his rhythm.

This latest offering from Ormonde Jayne (the French-ification of its name notwithstanding) is somewhat flat. The orris has clearly given up on the butter, and the vanilla seems to be on a diet too. What we get here is a reticent, lightweight cosmetic-like scent that has none of orris butter's doughy-rooty appeal nor vanilla's airy-powdery richness.

Vanille d'Iris is not a bad fragrance but with these two fabulous starring components, you do expect something special. It's like making a horror movie starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Undoubtedly one of the best on-screen romantic pairings of the last century. But seriously, a horror movie??
