Earth Iris
The warm and cool side of the iris is brought together here so that there is a very earthy effect for AugustA.

Carrot, fresh and juicy is smelling around it and a little fruit, central and full but first of all earth, not green-brown as with Patchouli, but rather grey, transparent, hazy, as if it were not the earth itself, but its evaporation, the layer above it, with a little steam or fog that rises. Past Earth. Ash.

This could be due to the effect of the violet, which harmonizes naturally with iris, which both have a very related vibe. This makes the fragrance appear fine and serious and at the same time very familiar. It creates a very special environment for the skin to which one can give oneself. It's even nicer to feel this than to smell it directly on the skin, but you can't leave it at that. The layer above is so attractive!

The tobacco note at the end also reflects this. She's more warm and familiar than smoky. Cistus adds some fire and brightness. The amber makes the outlet warm.

Cendré - ash-coloured reminds not only of light grey, but also of the fact that there must have been a fire. The earth after fire.

And in the end, this fragrance as a whole is a delicate, soft leather.

Iris in a context as one knows it, but somehow only rarely smells it, very well imaginable for men as well as for women who appreciate a dry-green-leathery interpretation of the iris root. Iris root, whose relation to the earth becomes almost tangible here when smelling. For every rainbow of the goddess Iris begins and ends on earth.

A beautiful fragrance that looks familiar and strange at the same time

The powdered white snake leather - handbag
At first you can perceive an intense herbaceous, quite discreetly citric note and is to be owed to the bergamot.

At the same time, a shimmering sweetish - fruity, slightly greenish note can be perceived, which evokes in me the image of a freshly peeled, not yet fully ripened mandarin and comes from the tangerine.

Already in the top note the actual theme of the fragrance can be perceived - namely Iris.

This constellation is perceptible on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.

In the heart note a beautiful bright, noble, slightly dry - powdery, but by no means dusty iris is revealed, which seems very transparent, but nevertheless tangible and in me the picture of a small handbag appears.

The iris is accompanied by a fine, subtle flowery - spicy shade, which I did not identify as violet, but as discreetly flavored and flowered (I ask for the word to be included in the duden) leather and I now have the finished picture of a small white snake leather handbag in front of me, on which make-up powder was generously distributed
I think that's great done! :-)

The heart note is perceptible on my skin for 4 hours before the base asserts itself.

The base becomes pleasantly crystal clear, which brings a fine woody hint and stems from the cistus.

At the same time the cistus rose is enveloped in a delicate sweet-spicy nuance, which has a beautiful lulling effect and is due to the amber.

Unfortunately I didn't come across tobacco, but I have to say that the base is dense, even voluminous and provides a pleasant finish.

Iris Cendré is a wonderful year-round companion for women aged 25 and over who are looking for the scent of their leather handbag to leave it and their make-up at home
In total, the fragrance lasts 7 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is conceived from the outset in such a way that one is perceived very well at a half arm length and this is also 3 hours so maintained, before it reduces itself in quiet steps, until the smell finally completely fades away
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Mydarkflower" for the rehearsal.

Transcending Genre Expectations...
Iris Cendre opens with a relatively sharp, carrot-like clinical iris with a tinge of underlying bergamot citrus support. Moving to the early heart, the iris remains the star, now adding a supporting gentle smoky amber accord and a tinge of leathery labdanum rising from the base with barely detectable slightly powdery violet. During the late dry-down the labdanum takes control eschewing most of its leathery aspect, swapping in very natural smelling woods with the very slightly sweet amber remaining in support sans smoke through the finish. Projection is below average but significantly more than a skin scent early and longevity is deceptively very good at over 12 hours on skin.

Iris is a note that this writer admittedly is not a fan of. As such, it was with some trepidation that I applied the sample of Iris Cendre on skin to see if it could buck the trend of others in the genre that didn't impress. I am happy to report that while I may not be a fan of iris focused compositions generally, I certainly am a fan of *this* one. From the open, the composition distinguishes itself by featuring a very high quality iris note that avoids the powdery aspect frequently encountered with the ingredient. This iris is stark, a touch sharp and very carrot-like, not unlike the iris used in reference iris compositions like Iris Silver Mist. While the iris is impressive enough, the deft use of subtle bergamot blended with it by perfumer Rasquinet makes for a stellar tandem. Once the smokiness arrives in the early heart it never overpowers the starring bergamot laced carroty iris, instead providing subtle depth and maybe even a touch of leathery darkness for balance. During the late dry-down the composition shifts gears near entirely, as it turns into a fine natural smelling woody affair, with just a bit of the leathery aspect remaining from earlier to set it apart. The whole development from top-to-bottom is extremely well-done and transitions are seamless. On the negative side to those that find projection important, the composition really is not a huge projector. Early, it almost exhibits average projection but an hour in while certainly more than a skin scent, it definitely hangs relatively close to it. Longevity was a bit of a mystery initially, as the first time I wore the composition I really thought it was all but gone after about 8 hours, and on my fragrance-friendly skin that really isn't very impressive. On the second wearing, and subsequent ones thereafter it turns out I was mistaken, with the perfume hanging around well past the twelve hour mark. I guess I just didn't notice it because of its lack of projection, especially late. All in all, if you are looking for a powerhouse look elsewhere, but if you can deal with its projection issues (which may be a strong positive for many situations) Iris Cendre is a superb smelling iris composition that even an iris hater like me wants in his collection. The bottom line is the $187 per 50ml Iris Cendre transcends the stereotypical aspects of the iris genre, making fans of even some that tend to dislike the ingredient, earning an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and a strong recommendation to everyone except those looking for monster projection.
