The surprising duality of orris. Woody and floral. Powdery and deep.
The scent of Tuscan hillsides with irises in bloom.
Orris’ woody intensity wrapped in creamy sandalwood and sensual amber.
Steeped in sunshine. Captivating and compelling.
Top Note: Violet
Heart Note: Orris

“We wanted to work with orris because it’s an extremely precious
ingredient in perfumery. Orris is the root of the iris plant and it has been
harvested in Tuscany for centuries, originally by monks.
This scent was about framing the orris to bring out its unique duality;
it is both woody and powdery, floral and deep. We achieved this
by using other woods as well as painting a picture of the iris flower itself.”
Master Perfumer, Pierre Négrin
Layer with Mimosa & Cardamom for a mesmerising fragrance that melts
into the creamy warmth of sandalwood. Or combine with Dark Amber & Ginger Lily,
where rich florals are deepened by the sensuality of amber.
