This fragrance opens with the delicate aroma of orris enhanced by citrus and sheer flowers (violet and green notes). These notes eventually merge into a very pretty fruity-floral accord (chocolate is responsible for the fruit aroma) whose delicate nature makes it perfect for a crisp summer morning. The iris root adds a glossy, sophisticated polish to the main notes. The scent loses its fruity-floral top accord after an hour or so and gradually reveals a fine powdery note (sandalwood). Woodsy notes and amber characterise this scent from the heart accord to the dry down. Always pretty and rather long-lasting for its kind, this scent lasts six hours on my skin.

butter and suede
Equistrius is a sweet but not gourmand, leathery iris. The topnotes hit you with a good dose of syrupy floral sweetness, maybe a lychee syrup. I am not a big fan of sweet fragrances but Marc-Antoine Corticchiato knows very well how to balance on the edge of the impossible, like he did with Cuir Ottoman where he coupled the powderiest of irises with the shiniest black leather. The sweetness seems overwhelming at first but why do I find myself sniffing again and again my “test site”? A hint of hazelnut starts dusting the shiny syrup adding some saltiness. In the heart a good scoop of buttery iris melts on top of the syrup making everything soft, warm, comforting. The official site lists dark chocolate in the notes and I wish I could pick this up but I can’t. What I do get though is how the iris produces a beautiful effect of soft, warn suede leather. In a way this leather note is very close to the suede of Daim Blond. In the drydown a champagne like accord brings sparkles to composition.

Equistrius is a proud fragrance. It wears loud and clear and if you are a man you better watch your finger because the spray delivers a hefty dose. I don’t know if you ever get a visual impact from the way a fragrance develops. Equistrius seems like melting on the skin. I get the feeling that it flows on the skin like melting butter, spreading further and further than where I spray it. It radiates and glows and never fails to put a smile on my face.

Notes from my nose: hot syrup, lychee, hazelnut, salted butter, suede,champagne
