Parfums Delrae
Mythique
(2009)
Yann Vasnier
Notes: Florentine Iris, Mandarin, Bergamot, Ivy, Peony, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Amber [Notes from parfyym.pri.ee; other sources substitute ambrette for the amber]

The iris in this is rich and magnificent, fresh with the citrus notes bursting in the top. The heart of ivy, peony, and jasmine is floral with a slightly bitter green twist, which keeps the freshness going; the woody amber base makes the perfect anchor and also boosts the rootiness of the iris, keeping it from coming across as too powdery. The peony-jasmine heart, balanced by the green ivy, stops short of being too feminine, making this a possible wear for a devil-may-care kind of guy. (Me? You?)
