Very bitter green opening settles down soon for a terrific, aromatic composition.
Iris is very smoothly blended here; it has a creamy and subtle scent here. In fact, I wouldn’t say this is exactly a “iris scent” because it isn’t that prominent at all ( like no other note either).
IBG is just perfectly balanced story of that iris root, vanilla, moss and musk. It smells very vintage without having any dated tone to it. Earthy and ever so slightly soapy fragrance which, to me, smells very ethereal and dreamy, like the colour of blue and grey indeed.
This would make a fantastic masculine companion to L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain.
Highly recommended even if you are not a biggest fan of iris (just like me).
