    LeLabo Iris 39 is my favorite iris. Second would be Divine L' Homme de Coeur and then 28 La Pausa. They are all good. The Chanel is a little on the feminine side of neutral whereas the LeLabo and Divine are woodier and more interesting. I also like Dzongkha by L' Artisan for iris with a leather and incense side to it. Iris fragrances are hard to depend upon for more than just a curiosity.

    I recently tested Ramon Monegal "Impossible Iris". Very nice indeed.

    I was able to sample Prada's Infusion d'Iris Absolue at a Sephora in the U.S. over the weekend and found it excellent. I never liked the original Infusion d'Iris - I found it had a gray, musty smell with not a lot of Iris going on. The Absolue is much rootier, and dry and elegant without being powdery. I have a decant of Le Labo Iris 39 but after a while found the Iris to be too "wet"; Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue smells like a drier version of Iris 39. It's sophisticated and wearable - a great Iris composition. I have since been looking around at where it is available and prices...

    Hermes Hiris is still one of the best in the market, in my opinion. The recent Amyris Francis Kurkdjian is very nice as well.

    I'm a big fan of Eau d'Hiver Frederic Malle and Apres L'Ondee: while none of them is iris centred, in my opinion they are the best elaboration around the iris note you could ever find.

    Thanks for the info. Would definitely give this one a try.

    The most beautiful iris I've yet come across. The rose and ylang ylang (and jasmine ? ) make the whole composition sing. It has a certain lightness too where other iris perfumes can seem rather flat and, well, dull. Given the astronomical price, it's not surprising it gets few mentions.

    28 la pausa ticks with every box you mentioned!!

    It starts masculine, spicy with peppers, and dries down into vetyver-iris combination, smells heavenly to me, clean and not powdery, and longevity is 5 hours plus!! It is strong scent

    Iris nobile is gardenia-iris scent, more feminine but flowery

    And iris silver mist is nice, but i never tried it
