I have a few iris centered fragrances in my vast arsenal, but none, and I mean NONE of them really and truly capture the scent of an iris in bloom. It is one of the most ethereal and lovely spring-blooming flowers around, but all I ever get in an iris fragrance is the smell of roots, dirt, crushed plant stems, and sometimes, mustiness. Why is it so hard to do this? I've tried all the more "good" ones in hopes of finding one I truly liked, but unfortunately, none really fill the bill. It's rather the same way with vetiver, with whom I have an ongoing love/hate relationship. If there's anyone knowledgeable in the botanical sciences, I would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks!
