Montale without hairspray!
...what a thing! A Montale that has no hairspray or commercial touch and looks completely natural and fresh.

I've never seen Montale like this. When I bought it blind, I was completely satisfied with this beautiful fragrance from the first sniff. It's very monothematic. Quasi an "Iris Attar without rose", if I may take this name out of my mouth!

It starts much deeper and much more woody than Infusion d'Iris and has a much more unisex effect on me. It captivates with an unbelievably pleasant freshness and appears much more powdery than its fragrance twin from Prada.

In the drydown, the woody component becomes more and more evident and gives the whole fragrance that certain degree of masculine wearability.
I never have the impression of carrot and if I do, then only shallowly in the background. It shines brightly and offers an excellent silage for a fragrance of this category. The durability on my skin is over 8h.

It is nevertheless gentle, unobtrusive and captivates with an almost pure impression of high-quality iris. Whoever expects great development here will definitely be disappointed. As mentioned above, it becomes a little bit more woody with time, but never changes its character. This remains strong, radiant and bright.

My fragrance for sports, hot summer days and for all occasions in which you want to be perceived as having a clearly pleasant fragrance without wanting to appear too progressive.

Clear recommendation to buy. If you like irises and are looking for a slightly louder fragrance with that certain freshness: buy!!!!

I can't see the lemon for the wood
The pyramid was obviously invented by someone, because I smell lemon wood, not the one from Southeast Asia, which is only called that because of its colour, but one, which probably only exists in my imagination.

From the first sprayer to the end it smells of lemony wood:
Fresh, straight beaten, juicy, soft, encouraging and bright.

Intense So Iris has no fragrance at all for me - it sniffs exactly the same from the first to the last second.
At work the same breath blew over me for hours, a very pleasant one, that's for sure said.

This mMn perfume can only be worn when it is warm, spring, summer or autumn, but it must not be worn below 20 degrees (in winter I just found it annoying and out of place).

I could imagine that this consistency might get on my nerves at some point, but I will definitely give the fragrance a filling time

So - so, so, so, so ... so Iris
To start with, even if it is a bit distracting: For all those who liked Iris Rebelle from AC, but found her much too weak, like me: Try this one. That's how it gets substance! - And now please forget again.

At Montale, we get: Fresh iris! And the one with the famous carrot, as if one had just broken a fresh young carrot apart and with the cracking of the carrot a little juice splashes into the face. The name Iris Rebelle would have fitted to this, which comes with power and is nevertheless the typical carrot iris at the beginning refined with some citrus and fresh green. All ravishingly woody at the same time. Wood with light grey grain.

After about a quarter of an hour, the fragrance has settled and remains. He's just passing a Haaspraynote - luckily, because AugustA doesn't need it at all.
Slightly creamy, but not buttery, the scent remains and remains and remains. I catch myself thinking about what you could layer with, this iris is so puristic. Puristic, not powdery. After hour two still no powder.

The charms that Iris can play out in combination with other flowers and especially woods are completely absent from this fragrance. That almost surprises you, because you are inclined to supplement the fragrance in your thoughts, to imagine what it is about, but what is not there. Blank, open field. But that is precisely the attraction of the composition. Pure fresh iris, little that completes the chain of associations - no noble elegance, no austerity, no powdery sensuality, no dreamy melancholy. And yet - after all, all this belongs to the iris.

The iris: rainbow, goddess, dazzling, wind shape, always a bit beyond. Although root, not flower, it eludes direct access. Spherical. Woody and dry. Here you can find them as directly as possible. This iris scent is whole - naked. Not ideas of nudity or anything like that. But naked irises, uncovered by other fragrances or fragrance concepts. I couldn't even say who the scent would suit, not too young old or man or woman or what. No stylized target group scent, no green and no Oriental either. An iris as you know it, but so far only in combination. When I notice this, the scent has caught me and it can stay the way it is for hours.
Whatever he does first.

Then, after about 3 hours the fragrance becomes imperceptibly softer, musk changes the surface and gives something pile, very soft pile. The Pure is now a bit creamier and more sensual after all. The musk is tender and soft, does not (!) remind of detergent or soap, but gives the iris an impression that reminds of skin warmth and evokes a touch that was not present in the scent before, precisely because it was so naked. Now it's more haptic. I guess the perfumer didn't want to put much more on it.
