Great beginning, not in love with the finish
I really like the grassy/herbal opening, and when the florals appear they're very light and clean - some sweetness, but not overdone. After this phase though, the iris becomes very prominent and the drydown turns very powdery and sweet. I've always had problems wearing iris, my skin just does not handle it well. This fragrance has excellent longevity, sillage is moderate. Wish they'd left out the iris!

upside-down herbal floral
Truth in advertising. Flower, wood. The fun, though, is the way the notes are flipped. FdB starts with resinous, grassy, wet woods. Birch and rosemary give a sort of chilly feel; galbanum and a fairly green lemon moisten things up. This resinous/citrusy opening number ushers in the myrrh by highlighting those particular aspects of myrrh. Soon the high, clear tone of the myrrh is tied to a similarly whispering but direct iris note. The chewy, woody start, something you would imagine as a basenote, is in fact the top note. In the end, FdB is a cozy but not slouchy myrrh/rose with mild sillage and a slightly raspy tone of voice. Distinctive but not odd in the least.
