An Inverted Floral Chypre
Keiko Mecheri IRIS POURPRE is a sort of inverted chypre perfume which begins dark and a bit dirty and slowly transforms into a spare, pristine iris solifore as innocent as a newborn child. The evolution of this composition reminds me of a corrupt person who suddenly has an awakening and decides to begin his life all over again, leaving all of his dingy past behind. Old habits die hard, but slowly, over time, he transforms into a new person bearing scant resemblance to the person who did what he once did.

I'm intrigued by the structure of this fragrance, how what would usually be basenotes appear as topnotes and somehow the clean iris prevails in the end. I do find the drydown slightly powdery, but mostly clean. IRIS POURPRE has good staying power and medium sillage, and its unique structure sets it apart from other niche-quality iris perfumes.
