About She Was An Anomaly

Daniela Andrier says:

This perfume is the result of something unexpected. I played with Carto, Givaudan’s AI-powered tool for suggesting formulas. I gave it beloved and familiar notes. Carto suggested an overdose of two ingredients. I took care of the rest.

Reviews of She Was An Anomaly

Mostly Iris, Musk and Sandalwood. It's pretty straight forward and linear, and so light you can pretty much douse yourself in it. Functions well as a 'non-perfume'. A very safe fragrance for the office. Other than that it's pretty underwhelming. Not a bad fragrance, but a disappointment coming from ELDO.

I prefer Prada Infusion d'Iris, also by Daniela Andrier. I have to wonder why ELDO would commission in iris scent from Andrier when Infusion d'Iris has become such a cult classic. Comparisons are inevitable and I suspect many may prefer the Prada.

A nice iris. It's combined on top with ambrette and a pinch of plum, which give it a chalky but sweetly floral undertone. It smells like there's a lot of ambrox in here as well, with it's salty creamy richness and the base is a rather unexpected aquatic cucumber/lily.

The whole point seems to be a yin/yang between buzzing synthetics (ambrette smells like some sort of frozen outer space smell despite it technically being a musk) and warm richness surrounding the iris. It's really well put together.

It's worth noting that nose Daniela Andrier also did the Prada Infusions, so she definitely knows her way around a proper iris perfume. Thumbs up!
