    Iris Silver Mist by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    another home run for mr. lutens (and in particular, mr. roucel). just stunning. if you can't appreciate the utter comprehensiveness of this study on iris, that is perfectly fine. but this is serious high art, and must be approached as such.
    all aspects of this soliflore are covered and the order - root, stem, petal, god-knows-what-powdery synthesis - in which they reveal themselves is the true measure of this creation's masterpiece status.
    certainly not for everyday, but when contemplation is in order, this is a true companion. on me its longevity is perfect, but on my wife is quite ephemeral, so she sprays rather than dabs. sillage is quite close, but sturdy.

    and if is possible to improve on perfection (does that truly exist?), layer with dior leather oud to create the holy grail iris-leather.

    damn, i love this stuff!
