I love this scent - it has the definite essence of Paris. Something chypre-like, bright yellow, green and flowery. And iris is just a mediator between topnotes of citruses and basenotes of vetiver and moss.
It`s summer morning in Paris feel - when you are coming for coffee and croissant to street cafe and ready to see and smell all the marvels of the city.
Vetiver The Great!!!
It is one of the most smoldering and repulsive fragrances I've put on my skin, I kid you not! Most masculine? Rather the other way around. I wore tiny bit on my wrist on the train and I just wanted to crawl out of my own skin. When I read the comments here, it doesn't even sound like it is the same fragrance, not by a mile. Cooling, masculine and great in hot weather? No, it is warm and damp, one of the most huge scents I've smelt and extremely feminine.
Weird how this stuff works. I just want to write this, so no one thinks it is a safe bet in any way.
PS. I'm a huge fan of Divine l'Homme de Cœur, Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist and Christian Dior Dior Homme. Huge fan. Oh, I even appreciate Hermès feminine take on iris, Hiris.
