Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
"Iris Fauve" is the Angora cat among fragrances. Fluffy, soft, cuddly, extremely pretty. And he's aware of the latter, too. Which doesn't make the scent any weaker or more unappealing. He's almost perfect when it comes to irises. And I would say that I know hardly any other fragrance better.

A treat. Dust dry, yet juicy. Iris at the very highest level, in many facets and high that it would suffice kings. Ah, the Emperor of China. Iris is no better off than here. A satisfaction you didn't know you needed. Supported by a hint of patchouli and myrrh in the finish, the result is a flattering dream of make-up, cake and noblesse. The gold pieces in the liquid do not trot too high. "Iris Fauve is spectacular. And always with a steady pulse and completely self-confident, elegant, expensive. You value him and get an infinite amount back. Cuddly deluxe. Purple, pink, grey - but actually pure gold.

Flacon: chic, from top to bottom
Sillage: one of the quieter from the house. Carrier scent.
Durability: as always with the gold flakes - no discomfort. 7-8 hours.

Conclusion: a noble iris soft draughtsman that makes me purr like a cat. Iris fans are pissed in their panties for joy. Fluffy and washable. Instant autumn classics.

Like a big, fat hangover!
Hello! New night, new commies. You know about me by now. Since I just don't run out of rehearsals because of you (thanks a lot! :DD), I have to keep writing *sigh*
He he he :D

Today, I come to Iris Fauve, who, with the word iris alone, makes me think of a very gentle scent, doesn't he? At least I found... let's say 80-90% of all tested iris fragrances were gentle, and of course beautiful. There were exceptions where it didn't smell so great, but there are such exceptions everywhere, even with beautiful things like Star Wars! :DD If you knew that I don't really like most of the Star Wars movies that much! (yes, I like the Star Wars universe a lot, but most of the movies are even quite boring to watch except for some nice scenes! :D).

But I don't want to bore you with it now. So..., this fragrance here fortunately belongs to the really great iris fragrances! Yes, it exudes a great aura of gentleness, powdery sweetness and general well-being, but it's best to read for yourself how the fragrance is:

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with a beautiful and sweetly scented iris fragrance. One smells a little cinnamon as well as lemon, whereby the lemon is smellable more at the sprayed place instead of in the smell cloud, and also rather for a short time.
After the Iris, the second stronger fragrance is the Patchouli, which disturbs me a little bit at the beginning, because I find as always, that beautiful soft and powdery fragrances like the Iris don't go so well with tart earthy fragrances like the Patchouli or harmonize well with each other. Well, at least the patchouli doesn't get soo strong, so the fragrance is very nice by and large. Because the resinous myrrh, which soon sets in, makes the fragrance even softer and thus simply more pleasant. In addition, at some point the vetiver also works, which also has an earthy scent, but this is more green-earthy and therefore more beautiful than the patchouli smells here. In addition, the Vetiver occasionally overlays the Patchouli.
Much later the fragrance is still nice and powdery and gentle, even if you should not perceive the iris as strongly as at the beginning. In addition, the fragrance is still resinous and therefore smells pleasant. I think it's especially good that the patchouli I criticized weakens considerably in the base. However, one still smells earthy notes from the mix of patchouli and vetiver (whereby the vetiver is stronger now), but these fit in the low intensity now much better with the remaining scents, so that I don't find them disturbing anymore. In addition there is now also some musk, whereby musk with iris together works particularly cleanly and this smell is thus more beautiful here than otherwise, since it radiates such a great, clean aura. A very beautiful fragrance.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is good, not a blast, but nevertheless you are wrapped in a nice scent cloud and therefore not only smellable at a short distance. The fragrance also lasts for eight to ten hours, so the shelf life is also good.

The bottle:
The bottle is thin and has a rectangular basic shape, however, it has strongly rounded and also inflated side edges. Lines have been worked into the glass that run from the centre to the side walls and thus act like sunrays, which is even intensified by the yellowish scent liquid and is therefore great to look at. The lid is glossy black, looks like a doorknob and carries the logo of the brand on the upper side. A beautiful bottle!

Soo... to get to my title, the scent is like a big, fat hangover. Something cute in itself, that got fat, but that also makes it especially fluffy and velvety. The little animal (like my big fat cat) has a lot of body area with long, soft hair, so it takes literally minutes to stroke your hand from one side to the other!
Well, minutes may be exaggerated, but still such a thicker cat has a lot of velvety surface! And this is especially noticeable when sleeping, when he doesn't want to disappear into the freezing cold at night and jumps into bed with you. Then you have the feeling that you hardly need the heating anymore, because your body heat is sufficient to sleep comfortably warm!

And this fragrance has a similar effect here. It is soft, gentle and warm. Well, so warm that it could only be used in autumn and winter, not so, but the fragrance has a certain warmth. From the seasons, however, I would still call him an all-rounder, he always goes, but probably fits best in spring and autumn. You could use it during the day as well as in the evening and I think you should definitely test it if you get the chance :)

So, that's it and we'll see each other again very soon, until then :D

Warm iris shimmer. Soft patchouli cloud.
Dried plums, apples and apricots in a bag, close well store warm for a few hours and then open. That's what the top note smells like for AugustaA. Then a cloud of patchouli will appear and ground the prelude.
Patchouli like from Mazzolari, Iris like VC&A Bois d'Iris. It slipped past the vanilla with a bright laugh, directly onto a warm, soft, earthy iris root, which exudes light powder and ethereal sweetness at the same time.

After about an hour, the dried fruit note has disappeared, only a hint of fruit remains, perhaps a little candied lemon peel. I like that so much better, the scent develops to melt away.

And that lasts. Iris Fauve has a long shelf life, and in these hours we get a development of the fragrance from the fruity, chocolate-earthy opening with a flowery transition to delicate vanilla clouds with a light citrus note, then to a, let's say, light beige powder elegance, which is then carried very long by light wood and silvery iris with green sprinkles.

Something smurgles and smokes at the end, it smells somehow caramelised, but without the heavy-sweet gourmand touch, rather slightly smoky. And some musk and warm skin.

The quality of this iris scent, which is less smelled than felt, differs from other typical iris scents, but what is typical? Anyway, she's not cool, not melancholic. No carrot, no lipstick. Instead, the fragrance, together with the iris root, exudes the mild, warm scent of myrrh, cinnamon and cistus rose. Resinous, balsamic. Much sun has seen and stored this iris. The fragrance remains dry and soft. Always light, even in the fuller phases. Everything is grouped around this shimmering and warmly shining iris, which remains light and intangible.

The cinnamon gives a little heat and the patchouli supports the earthiness and woodiness of this iris. The typical coolness and powderiness of iris is kept in balance with warmth and lightness. The vanilla is very delicate and the resins are just a little sweet. Musk and myrrh seem breathed in, sensual. In the end, a hint of smoke and vanilla tobacco remains on the skin, and the fragrance certainly smells equally good on men's skin due to the high wood content. There are light and dark, in any case dry woods.

Conclusion: This, and it's a she, is very nice, although to me in the beginning a little too much dried fruit
against it. But once that's gone, it's a dreamlike warm iris scent for cooler days

More Fauve(Tawny) than Iris
I was kindly given the opportunity by a dear blogger friend to test a few fragrances from Atelier des Ors (thank you!), and here are my experiences with Iris Fauve:

Iris Fauve can be translated into English as Tawny Iris, and it turns out that it's mostly tawny but not much iris on my skin. Upon spraying Iris Fauve, there is a very brief glimpse of aromatic bergamot. The fragrance is then swiftly dominated by an imposing cloud of the dry, hay-like fuzzy spiciness of tonka bean and the syrupy caramel sweetness of amber, hence my association with the tawny colour.

As long as I make an effort to look through the opaque cloud of tonka and amber, yes, the iris and a few other listed notes are all there. The iris here is not the grey, rooty, haunting melancholy, nor is it the sensual, buttery tenderness that will melt one's heart, but a woody, doughy and somehow malleable chameleon that binds the other notes altogether. The warm, sweet woody spiciness of cinnamon is sprinkled on top of this iris dough like a fancy cinnamon roll, while the smoky, slightly sour faux-oud smell of cypriol and vetiver stirs in the background to add an exotic touch.

However, as a whole, these interesting interactions are largely engulfed by the massive canopy of spicy, fougere-toned tonka and caramel amber, especially in its heavy-to-moderate sillage. And there isn't any significant evolution during its 10-hour longevity. If I don't pay much attention to the details, Iris Fauve wears mostly like a smoldering, sugary spicy amber-tonka-dominated oriental fougere that has a more pronounced tobacco facette in the dry down, and I wouldn't particularly think of iris if I had not known the name. As a result, I would not recommend it as an iris fragrance in the conventional sense, but rather put it in the subcategory of sweet amber fragrances with an iris nuance such as Jacques Fath Bel Ambre and Juliette Has A Gun Calamity J, or link its tobacco dry down with tobacco-iris such as Diptyque Volutes.

Very sophisticated and elegant take on iris. A bit woody, a bit powdery. Everyone shall find in it something to like+4
