    Today I've been comparing Xerjoff Irisss with Prada's original Infusion d'Iris EdP.
    Xerjoff has far greater longevity and depth, and extra oomph.
    The difference between thosee two reminds me of the difference between Jaipur pour Homme EdP and EdT - the former having more heft and depth.
    I think benzoin in the base may be a factor in both comparisons.

    I've never tried the regular (non-Absolue) version of Prada Infusion d'Iris. I bet I'd like it.

    This pass was a lot of fun to host. LiveJazz has expressed interest in potentially hosting another round of blind sampling. It would likely be a few weeks off, maybe around the Christmas season? Feel free to express interest in this thread if you might like to participate.

    I would definitely be up for it!

    Thanks for the lead-in. This was such a great sniffing experience, and I'd just like to keep it rolling, maybe encourage more of these in the future, and of course give Bavard a chance to participate as a blind sniffer!

    It would be great to get some repeats of participants here, however I don't want folks to feel over-committed heading into the holidays! Perhaps a kickoff shortly after Thanksgiving in the US would be ideal, so we can be winding down heading into the Holiday travel season. I'll start a thread soon (likely next week) - but again, feel free to express interest here in the meantime!
