Bois d'Iris (2009) Émilie Copperman Woody Oriental
•Top Notes: Sweet Notes, Frankincense •Middle Notes, Woody Notes, Cedar, Iris, Vetiver •Base Notes: Ambergris, Labdanum, Myrrh, Vanilla Notes
This starts off with a soft iris accord that at first seems not to have much sillage, but after a few minutes, when the heart notes begin to appear, the sillage gets quite a bit more noticeable, shifting the focus from iris to vetiver and cedar. Then the oriental notes begin to appear: first the incense/balsamic notes, and finally the amber and vanilla. The iris remains in the mix, but as each layer is revealed, it changes and floats in and out between the foreground and the background. An interesting scent, truly unisex also; it could easily be sold as a masculine with the vetiver and woody notes being well featured here. The pony trick in this one is dosing the vetiver enough to take advantage of its undertones of orris butter and violets and thereby really supporting and reinforcing the iris soliflore impression of the whole. Good sillage, and a good longevity nearly six hours after application; but I would say if you want the longevity and sillage, don't be too sparing with the number of sprays.
Yr good bud,

AMOUAGE OPUS II
A majestic Fougere inspired by the heady and evocative fragrances of old books, dark wooden shelves and antique armchairs. Amouage Opus II opens with a rare and magical combination of Pepper, Pink Bay, Absinth and Lavender in the top notes. These notes unfurl to reveal a heart of Jasmine, Rose, Cinnamon and Cardamom. The base of Cedarwood, Amber, Frankincense and Patchouli conclude the fragrance with a soft, smoky, masculinity that contrast beautifully with the floral heart notes.
