Very subtle soapy iris
The third monegal perfume that i try and again... One of the BEST iris perfume that i have ever tried. It is true that i orefer other kind of mixings with the iris like the one un Dior homme ir in gentleman by givenchy, but comparing yo other similar perfumes this one is very very good.
The smell is very soapy, the opening is even similar to Chanel n°5, i supose because if the ylang ylang. Although It doenst appear un the notes List, i think It should have aldehides or something similar because of the soapy and airy feeling It gives. Impossible iris is very close to iris poudree by Frederic Malle, but a bit softer and less aldehidic. The iris here is very powdery and delicate. I dont get the Raspberry but It has something sweet un the back which is very subtle.
The performance is not bad for this kind of smell. It has a good longevity (6-8hoirs) and the sillage is very moderate. It keeps close to the skin but is noticeable in intermitent trails during most of his Life. Very versatile scent good for day time

Absolutely Lives Up To Its Name...
Impossible Iris opens with a considerable amount of ylang-ylang before almost immediately transitioning to its iris heart. The iris here is not as powdery or as waxy as one might expect, but instead you get the true nature of the iris in all its glory with just the right amount of slightly soapy powder. The iris is well-supported by prominent jasmine and just the slightest amounts of raspberry and mimose balancing the composition with an almost hidden cedar in the base. Projection is average and longevity is excellent.

I am not a big fan of iris compositions in general, so I went into smelling Impossible Iris on skin with very low expectations... It would apparently be near-impossible for me to truly enjoy just about any iris composition, but I can definitely vouch for the scent's name being legit as I absolutely love Impossible Iris! Monegal achieves the unthinkable in letting the iris come through unobscured by the usual characters, while complimenting it rather brilliantly with just the right amount of jasmine and raspberry to let the iris shine while underpinning it with just the right support. The cedar in the scent is hidden so well that I really have to concentrate to smell it, and frequently just enjoy the iris without thinking about it being there at all. Finally an iris composition I really want to buy, earning an excellent 4 stars out of 5... An "Impossible Iris" indeed!

Very subtle, powdery and creamy iris fragance. The ylang ylang brings some Chanel n°5 vibe. Very close to iris poudree by Frederic malle

Powdery iris with juicy grassy green, a flowery mimosa note and a faint fruity (well made) accent. Quite unusual iris scent.
