Thread: Iris Silver Mist
Could someone please describe the Iris Silver Mist for me? It seems awfully hard to find a sample of it, the only place I can find is TPC and they charge $6 for 1ml .

Ascella, it's funny you opened this thread because I find myself in the exact same situation. ISM sounds so extremely intriguing but not many people seem to have it, so it's hard to try this one. Are there some folks who can elaborate on this scent, perhaps?
Cool iris and pencil shavings, graphite included.Very cerebral. The perfect perfume accompaniment for intense focused mental effort.
Sending BEMs scuttling back to Betelgeuse with my fierce fumage!
Dry rooty iris, not the soft floral make-up like variety (although that facet of iris does exist in ISM early in the notes phase for a little while). Lutens wanted ISM to remind one of clean white linen sheets....no journey to Morocco needed for this one.

"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"

I feel that ISM has a similarity to the Iris Pallida- very pretty.
But it's more affordable, and lasts longer on my skin.
ISM makes the Prada smell 'thin' by comparison- if that helps.
[I think we get spoilt ! Nothing wrong with many of these irises- they just don't move me in the same way...]
A couple of very generous people contacted me after posting these two threads, hopefully I will be getting a sample very soon .

Thanks for everyone's comments! I'll probably be ordering a sample from TPC. Can't wait to find out what it's like.
