Interweavings of interchangeable interconnections
I'm assuming the directive from the Etro board was to create something containing iris, with a fresh top note, but not green, with a musky note, but not too blatently synthetic - essentially, a fragrance which could please as many Etro fans as possible...

"Jacquard" is the right word for this project in many ways, because the composition tries to bind together a lot of popular and trendy ingredients of the last - say- five years, notably elemi resin, iris butter and violet. The pattern is quite clear, here's another one of those muted "iris scents", subtle, with a fine progression from citrus to flowers to wood and musk, avoiding the monotony of one artificial over-persistent accord so many screechy mainstream fragrances are "blessed with". That alone makes "Jacquard" superior, but on the other hand, the composition lacks originality, it doesn't stand out. "Jacquard" exudes good taste, but the interweavings of iris butter and musk, violet and sandalwood aren't as exquisite as the company suggests on their website. "Iris Prima" is just as finely balanced, but more interesting because of the leathery note. "No. 19 Poudré" is more eleborate on the iris-note and more compelling, even more complicated. Of course, "Jacquard" offers a delicate harmony of well-known ingredients, but it couldn't quite capture my heart. By the way, the bottle-design is misleading, too vibrant, red, orange and yellow aren't the colours I'd associate with this scent. It is not an extroverted, exhilarating perfume, and the wearer would "insult" it with casual or sporty clothes. "Jacquard" smells grown-up and elegant, shadowy colours like muted grey, pale lilac, dark vanilla and hazy blue seem better suited to my personal "olfactory picture" of this fragrance. The bottle promises a kind of brightness and spectacularness the fragrance doesn't deliver.
