    Equistrius by Parfum d'Empire

    This falls into the fruity iris vein, not the rooty, powdery iris. It opens fairly sweet, but a very smooth iris notes soon emerges. It is paired with a hint of violet to sharpen it, but this still wears balanced and smooth, albeit with a lingering sweetness.
    Iris is prominent all the way through this one. There is an ambrette note also, which adds interest.
    It transitions slowly to a beautiful iris/sandalwood base that lasts.
    This is a fairly soft, pretty iris dominant fragrance, and it wears close to the skin. It is worth a try for iris lovers who do not want all the rooty, rustic smell that some iris fragrances offer. It is easily unisex, but the opening is on the sweet side.
