Regina Algida...
There is a handful of very old cloth shops in my hometown, which have not undergone a renovation since the '70s. Upon initial spraying Iris Nazarena smells exactly like they do. Perhaps there was some very popular and widely used air freshener back then, or more likely something used in the proccessing of the fabrics, and thus the characteristic smell has pervaded their walls permanently. And for some strange reason, I was feeling rather uncomfortable being in such shops as a child, although I loved the seemingly endless variety of their merchandise. This "blast from the past" nostalgic quality slowly fades away after a couple of hours, and what is left, is something that an ice queen would leave lingering in her wake. Something like a distant titter in a dark winter night, that clutches your heart with icy fingers. I sense no welcome here, and this ashen grey industrial smell is so devoid of any warmth that it makes me shiver with conflicting feelings of pleasure and dread. Contradictive? Perhaps. But contradictions are not necessarily a flaw, cause while contradictive perfumes can be either good or bad, what they cannot be is indifferent. And this is already a merit, at least in terms of interest picking, and more than enough to make them stand out in our contemporary faceless perfume times. And Iris Nazarena has a face. A scary one perhaps, but still a face...

To be rude
This is a must-try for fan of iris, a really strong and characteristic one.

I am sorry, I am going to be rude now due to the fact that my nose is not on such high and refined level as on others, and not enough sensitive for such noble notes as iris.

IRIS NAZARENA for me:
1. Demolitions expert + paper scent of an engineering textbook.
2. Plasticine odor. (Best kind: LUCTOR ET EMERGO, worst kind: you have to chose one for yourself, for me winner of this competitions will definitely contain iris.)
3. The base is a stingy-smoky, dark scent.
4. Aftergame on the next day: disease odor.

And of course, the additional information: the ingredients are high quality, even though I wrote very harsh attributives, IRIS NAZARENA is not synthetic even a bit. It can be worn by women or men (right: almost 50-50% is the ratio of the owners between the two genders, when I am writing this), the bottle is elegant and longevity is just excellent.
