31 Days of Iris: A Day of Rest and Housekeping

by khanada on 22nd March 2021 at 07:51 AM
During this project, I am assimilating a list of tempting iris fragrances that I have never heard of. I’m not going to share them just yet, because some appear to be unknown bargains that I, selfishly, want to purchase before I share them with any potential readers.

In the meantime, a confession: I bought some Insolence EDP this morning. I am trying to compete this project without spending fortune on new perfumes, but I really want my Insolence EDP in the old style bottle. I

31 Days of Iris: Day 7 and Insolence EDT

by khanada on 21st March 2021 at 10:57 AM
Insolence EDT does not even try to be classy. It represents one direction that the house of Guerlain might have taken: a grand house sans parfumuer en maison that uses guns for hire for its pillars (what was wrong with Marice Roucel? Perhaps he prefers his independence, for which one cannot blame him, as he has done some of his most interesting work outside of the creative restrictions of larger houses, although I would argue that Insolence is an exception, a wild and unfettered creature that

31 Days of Iris: Day Six and Iris Chypre from Elixir Attars

by khanada on 20th March 2021 at 06:41 AM
Note: this is not in the directory yet. Listed noted are: Cloves, Cinnamon, Ginger and Bergamot; middle notes are Rose de Mai, Jasmine and Ylang-Ylang; base notes are Orris Root, iris, Styrax, Labdanum, Oakmoss, Cedar, Vanilla, Benzoin, Patchouli, Ambergris and Tonka Bean.

Sometimes I get lucky with my sample requests from Luckyscent. Elixir Attar is asking something like 400 dollars or more for their Iris Chypre, and Luckyscent wants about $40 dollars a pop for a sample. Ouch.

31 Days of Iris: Day Five and Iris Poupre

by khanada on 19th March 2021 at 06:19 AM
Keiko Mecheri is a house that I don't see discussed much here on Basenotes. Fragrantica, which I think skews a little more broad (more enthusiam for designer perfume), young, and feminine in its English-speaking demographic, generallly shows a little more enthusiasm for Keiko and her house. Maybe it's because the house has a reputation for being kind of "Lutens Lite," or maybe it is because the house's perfumes are, generally, more delicate and floral in composition. This is all conjuecture,

31 Days of Iris Day 4: Feu Secret, the Dark Side of Iris

by khanada on 18th March 2021 at 09:38 PM
Today I woke up to a brutally windy March morning, with dark skies and a steadily dropping temperature hovering in the low 40s. It felt like winter was back, and I was not in the mood for a revisit of our recent blizzard or even a small taste of it. But, I was also not in the mood for a pretty little violet something. I wanted a dark and stormy iris that would capture our gray skies and the dead leaves still blowing around by the back door. I also had a brand new batch of samples that came this
