... or little sister of Infusion d'Iris (2007) Eau de Parfum
and Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca
.... but from the beginning:
Have me a restflakon bought over the Souk, because I - actually - no new Irisduft let alone a Neroliduft need. From the former I have meanwhile already some and always fall back on my beloved Infusion d'Iris, from the latter I have the beautiful Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca, which refreshes me on hot summer days. With Neroli connects me rather a love at third sight, as it sometimes becomes bitter on my skin and seems a bit scratchy, but not with the Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca.
But now to Iris & Néroli
The fragrance starts with a fresh but unbitter Neroli, very slightly soapy (but what I like) and then goes quite quickly into a clean, powdery, unsweet Iris, which reminds me strongly of Infusion d'Iris (2007) Eau de Parfum
In the further course or drydown, the neroli takes itself more and more back and beckons only a little from afar, so to speak from the back ranks of the fragrance theater.
Instead, the iris now enters the stage and has thrown for it mighty in shell and - not only the little nose - dusted with slightly sweetish, but still pleasant orange powder.
She dances thereby on the sandalwood parquet, until she sinks down exhausted on the musky cloud.
The durability is also neat, but must test that tomorrow again more extensively.
The bottle is surprisingly heavy and made to a high standard (apart from the cap perhaps), but pretty with the fluted glass.
Overall, the fragrance really does not have to stand behind its "big sisters" - it is finely tuned, very pleasant and in the price actually unbeatable
