'Incredible Irises' Perfume Lovers London Event Thurs. 22nd November 2012
Iris: rooty, earthy, powdery, sublime. There are many facets to this spectacular ingredient.
Orris, or Iris is one of the most expensive raw materials in perfumery. It is traditionally used as a fixative to make perfumes last longer, but it has also been used as a central theme in a perfume: sometimes subtly, sometimes with a 'no holds barred' approach. This evening is a celebration of all things iris, that will enable you to appreciate its main characteristics and be able to detect it in many different perfumes.
Yes, there are even irises for men! We will be lucky enough to have some fabulous raw materials courtesy of IFF.
As usual, where possible, a sample of your choice and refreshments included.
cost £15 and are non-refundable.
This event is run in association with Basenotes.net
