Yes, a very kind BNer sent me a tiny sample of VC&A Bois d'Iris and I fell for it with the very 1st try. I couldn't resist when I found a tester bottle which was almost half the non-tester price. I find it perfect for myself with it's quality and different woody/iris facets. I don't know why perfume directories mark it as feminine, it's perfectly unisex, or even leaning more towards masculines.
Happy to hear you tested 1740 and liked it so much. Can't agree with you about similarities with Fumerie Turque as I don't know it. Good luck and enjoy your bottle once you buy it.
I will try Iris Poudre soon, my sample of it from a swap should be on it's way. About VC&A Bois d'Iris - it's my newest perfume addition, bought it few weeks ago after I got my university 1st degree, it was a gift for myself.
Glad you liked the review of 1740. It's good, not something I would wear often, but worth trying. There are also reviews of other HdP here at BN
Ah, now I see we both love iris, but we also tend to like it's different faces. I like my iris to be happier, powdery or woody. I own a decant of Iris de Nuit but I find it too airy. Well, tastes are tastes! Let's just like what suits us best
We iris lover gotta stay together, there are few more of us here. You said you didn't understand Iris Nobile, what do you mean?
Thank You. It is my pleasure!
