Glowing floating in wood
Free association:
A sheep, a storm, a hot cup of tea, a long chain, a touch, an unusual thought, a familiar feeling.

The free roar of the sea. Mineral light reflections of the waves. Glitter in the rock of a rock in the mountains. A touch of cooling vetiver, the smoke of wood, very soft, never charred. Wisdom, distance and proximity. A wide horizon, height and depth. Movement.

Concentration on the scent:
I smell coriander and pepper as a slight tingling, a light veil of iris, still with a carrot component that makes it light and juicy. Soon some vanilla, light beige warm shimmer of light.

The fragrance immediately begins to play with light impressions. It is airy, light that falls through a fine fabric, it shimmers, it wafts. And has a softly tart note, as if the whole potion had been poured over an old wooden stump. Sometimes silvery, sometimes golden, it floats up into the air to settle gently on the skin again. The impression is elegant, at the same time it seems technically playful, that is very lively for my perception, but an "adult vanilla" an elegant, very dry iris, more root than glam powder. No hairspray, no lipstick, no theatrical makeup. Abstract as well as natural, distant and at the same time immediately merging. This grey-beige iridescent light is preserved when the fragrance becomes more floral after half an hour. Jasmine can be guessed, but does not upstage the slim, tall iris with its eroticism, magnolia makes the whole thing shine even more. So it remains for a long time, a sometimes flickering iris spice powder.
It disappears, it comes back as soon as you forget it, this is a real iso-E super trick here, but used so skilfully that the fragrance loses neither calmness nor elegance and also goes deeper and deeper. Causes AugustA a slight wanderlust and an intimate fascination. So I find this fragrance so fitting, so familiar, despite its abstract construction, that the fascination increases with every minute. The suction of the Duftaura is great, but it always remains light and floating. A beautiful stranger who became dear at the first moment of the encounter. So naturally extraordinary. For the evening for the night for the day.

In the end the glow weakens, a hint of spice, vanilla and wood and a facet of iris, which is now very well-groomed, very pleasant. I noticed this sound in my clothes days later after the first rehearsal, and it is perfect, I like to reach for this sweater or scarf again to put it back on. A familiar and exciting smell. What more does a man/woman want?

Searching and finding a fragrant beauty...
My favourite novel was published in 1966. One of my favorite movies was published in 1957. Musically it often draws me back to older appearances.

Now it's safe for some to ask the question:
What does that have to do with vanilla d'iris?
Over the years I have become more and more aware of myself that I very often find more quality, depth and interest in and in "old" things. Be it literature, music, movies and, how could it be otherwise, perfumes? Trying to find a perfume in a Douglas and Co. that I don't already know or stand out from the crowd is unfortunately often difficult for me and I have to admit that I often give up with minimal irritation. New fragrances often don't touch my soul and I sometimes don't see any great differences between the many sweet and fresh new releases. As such highlighted summer scents are too shallow for me many times or the certain something is missing.

Why is she telling us all this? When is it finally about this perfume?

I can't count how many fragrances I've tested - looking for a "contemporary" fragrance that's classic, elegant, yet deep and feminine in beauty and attraction - but also at the office and at higher temperatures, with respect to the many Ü25 °C olfactory sensitized people, can undoubtedly be used. (I belong to the group of people who immediately connect Tauers No. 02 with Morocco, for example, and who would also like the fragrance to be discreetly dosed in summer. More like a minority?)

Vanilla d'Iris was instant love of fragrance.

This perfume is wonderfully airy, fine and delicate, yet it has a certain intensity, depth and warmth. It has the quality of fragrances that I often know from past times. In the same sense, it also appears classic and elegant. Beautiful timeless.

I can't resist and think of the theatrical life just as immediately when I experience the scent of the beautiful powder/lipstick note - the make-up; the chandeliers in the hall, which are threaded again and again before the main season; the dimmed light just before the performance begins and the hours in which the otherwise so quiet theatre is full of life, as the performance begins soon. An elegant fragrance that sends me mentally to one of the most creative places for me personally, in a very subtle way? A dream!

Vanilla d'Iris is nostalgic and yet just as modern - stylish, fine, adult. The spicy start with coriander seeds and pepper in the foreground flows wonderfully into melted iris butter and delicate flowers. Osmanthus gives the fragrance a delicate fruitiness that makes it even more feminine. In the heart, the vanilla pod shows its most beautiful side, bedded on fine wood and a delicate musk cloud. The result of this ensemble is a wonderfully powdery, slightly creamy fragrance with a subtle lipstick note.

A perfume that is always effective - wearable in winter and summer, at work and at dinner. The Sillage seems very gentle to me personally, but the environment perceives this fragrance well. The shelf life is even given the next morning, even if only very softly.

I would also like to mention that Ormonde Jayne has one of the best customer services I have ever experienced. The upgrade of the flacon (the 50ml flacons were in production and the Brexit was calling.) including payment was done within 1 hour by e-mail and the offer to order the 50% variant / perfume variant instead of 30% variant came without having to ask about the perfume. Very friendly, very fast, very competent.

Vanilla d'iris is a beautiful fragrance which I am sure I will love for a long time or even forever

A light and powdery Iris/violet note reminiscent of Dior Homme. Vanilla plays the perfect supporting role elevating all other aspects.
