Reviews of Niral

There is one review of Niral.
When subtlety slides into the soporific. Niral is a classic case of understatement gone wrong, when less is just less.
Perhaps the auguries were not good when the house decided to go down such a tried and tested path that there’s little room for improvisation – we’re talking about the iris-suede combo which has been exploited to death by niche/masstige as shorthand for sophistication. It’s a blurry, cool olfactory sensation, immediately recognizable, pleasant enough but difficult to give any kind of form.
From the opening we are greeted by a surge of the familiar milky base that Duchaufour loves before one perceives the iris theme. Points of interest are a cedar and angelica accord that imparts a dry saltiness, almost like a precise and minute dose of fenugreek, and the sharpish rose in the heart which slightly clashes with the overall composition at first until it becomes downy and soft like posh baby powder some hours down the line. My feelings for Niral do grow warmer after about half a day’s wear when the rose-iris integration in a kind of olfactory milkshake is finally achieved and the perfume emanates from my person like an aura. But for large parts of its life Niral is a big yawn, the kind of effort worthy of the old schoolteacher’s admonition – ‘Must try harder’. And at 225 euros for a 60 ml bottle, pleasant just doesn’t cut it.
