    Well, the Chanel's for sure: No. 19 (vintage if you can find it) or 28 La Pausa. Avoid the No. 19 Poudre, I don't think its very iris prominent...but if you love powder then try Iris Poudre by Frederic Malle
    Hermessence Paprika Brasil by Hermes
    Iris Pallida by L'Artisan Parfumeur (a limited edition, a bit hard to source I must admit)

    Also, if you like Infusion d'Iris then you owe it to yourself to try the Absolue version, it's fantastic!

    I own & love Dzing! but I wouldn't call it an 'iris' scent. It's much more about the animalic / leather sweetness to me.

    Ramon Monegal Impossible Iris would be a great one to try.

    Yeah, but I wouldn't avoid No 19 Poudre, it's very lovely scent. Infusion d'Iris Parfum Absolue is very nice and has more iris than the previews version. Also, for me it came before Id'IPA, Ferre for Women, which some say is close to Iris Poudre.

    I am also on an iris search, Iris Bleu Gris is on its way.... Other better ones either I can't afford or it's nota easy to get.

    Seconding some Chanels. Including Cuir de Russie, where the iris mixes beautifully with the plush leather. And then the fresh la Pausa.
    In Guerlain, Apres l'ondee is apparently a nice iris after reformulation. So is the flanker to l'Heure Bleue, called l'Heure de Nuit.


    There is of course also the most famous of all, Iris Gris, discontinued for decades and simply unavailable.

    Earlier today I rediscovered an old Evelyn & Crabtree Iris room spray in my dresser. I am not very familiar with Iris but it smelled really good.

    I also have the Iris Poudre Body Butter ​it is worth it! So rich and creamy and perfumed!

    This one is light and sweet. Floral, not roots. I don't find it all that 'powdery'. More just 'feminine'. Normally, I don't dig a powdery scent.

    I've just started to explore Iris myself...
    I bought Cuir Ottoman by Parfums d' Empire a while back for the leather, and now as my nose has 'evolved' a bit, I can detect a really lovely floral mixed in with it (at least I think it's the Iris I can smell).
    I've used up my sample of Equistrius too, and have rediscovered Iris Poudre, although I think between the two I prefer Equistrius mainly for its mix of violets and chocolate, its also not as powdery.
    I'm looking forward to smelling 28 la Pausa when I get a chance to as well.

    Another good quality and affordable iris fragrance is, in my opinion, Iris Sauvage by Pierre Cardin. Though officially a masculine, technically I find it more suitable as being categorized and actually used as unisex, since it has that particular kind of iris smoothness that works well for both genders.

    PG's Cuir d'Iris is a very pleasant, smooth suede-like iris.

    Danieq that's a great list. Are you after Iris as the star note? Iris makes a welcomed appearance in Opardu, Skin on Skin and I Love les Carottes. It's quite a noticeable rooty and carroty note in I Love les Carottes. Olivia Giacobetti showing her fun and quirky side.

    Dior Homme is loaded with iris

    MPG Fleur d'Iris(its a very green wet iris)

    MPG Iris Bleu Gris(a warm woody iris)

    Miller Harris Terre d'Iris.



    Others mentioned are fantastic especially the L'Artisan. Iris has changed a lot now, before it was always powdery but now you will get a lot of rooty earthy iris.

    OK, you can tell I've had a busy weekend because I just now saw this thread.

    I would add Penhaligon's Iris Prima. It totally underwhelmed me upon first wearing but has become a go-to scent for me - I'm halfway through my decant already.

    Yes Xscent, star note of Iris IS what I'm after for the moment. The most irisey Iris you can think of. I'd like an Iris up my nose, if you please.

    Third on Iris Nazarena. I'm wearing this today and i'm loving it. It smells like a very chic Iris fragrance, powdery, rooty, slightly creamy. Quality stuff.
    Modern Chanel No 19 in pure parfum has a lovely powdery iris two.
    If you want you iris with some violet, you could try Odori Iris.
    I'd also recommend you Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue, Yves Rocher Iris Noir, Serge Lutens Bas de Soie, Cartier L'Heure Convoitee II, L'Heure Promisse I (which is basically iris, sandalwood and green/grassy notes, i love it on summer)
