The morning of a woman
Wow, my fourth fragrance by Stephane Humbert Lucas that I can test. After Black Gemstone, Harrods and Mortal Skin now this Panthea Iris. I knew it would be hard to place in this category and that the fragrance would probably not be on the same level as the other three. This was partly because Panthea Iris is not one of the better known and / or more popular of the brand. That doesn't have to be a bad thing, but I did have an immediate feeling of not being drawn into the world this time and not experiencing a scent story as I did with the first three tests. Black Gemstone had me so intrigued at the time which is what drew me to a great bottle. So dark the story and emotion behind the scent. One of my, to this day, most intense scent perceptions.

This is not to say Panthea Iris has no qualities or positives. It was clear to me personally relatively quickly, not every of the Stephane Humbert Lucas fragrances will come into the league of my three favorites of the brand. A fragrance journey is full of surprises, disappointments and fragrances that are not completely convincing, as I currently experienced with Anfas Rahaba. Often we are driven in our journey and choice by external influences. I have also often enough caught myself how a sample has landed with me, where I have seen the fragrance before on YouTube. This usually backfires as expectations are too high at the time. It is advisable to take the whole thing then significantly later to look at something more open and with less hype the thing.

But now to the fragrance, which I would actually prefer to smell my wife and therefore also left her the sample. With some mental distance, the fragrance seems namely like the course of a morning, in which a woman gets ready for the day.
There are notes of light powder at the start, the lady wakes up goes to the bathroom and comes out of the shower refreshed. The powderiness becomes stronger and reminds of face powder, the make-up begins. Slowly the notes change to something like pencil and I notice eyeliner and eye shadow being applied. Light vanilla joins in and the scent turns to a white-flowery association after florals, because the lady is done. She has applied a fragrance and is going out of the house.

I was yet a bit puzzled by the scent progression, as it was not foreseeable how the fragrance keeps transforming and playing with new and sometimes opposing notes. Especially the pencil note seemed to me something out of place and unnecessary. A progression from the iris-heavy powder note into the white flowers I imagined more elegant and could certainly have been solved differently despite only a few minutes of pencil. After a good hour, the white-floral meal was prepared and then lasted until the end with a few additional nuances. In this bouquet, the iris then also no longer has the radiance that the name of the fragrance reveals. Only the lowest base is allowed to accompany this note. I am aware that there are no white flowers in the fragrance pyramid, but I consistently detect them. Whether it is now due to the musk, which provides this impression with another note I can not say definitively.

What I can say, however, the durability and sillage are really good. Especially in the first two hours you pull even with a spray a certain cloud with you around. It also took a long time to get the fragrance from the skin. The day over you get along with it loosely.

So how does the fragrance stay in my memory ? As the fragrance that is good, but does not come close to the other fragrances of the brand that I love. Neither from the complexity heard on my skin, nor from the depth of associations. Panthea Iris is certainly a fragrance that could appeal to many, but doesn't offer me what I'm looking for. So I would also want to sniff the fragrance more on a woman than on myself.

The Persian godass captured in a bottle
The most stunning Iris scent ever made, clean, elegant and beautiful. Iris and powder, with a little hint of citrus notes, resting on a bed made of musk, sandalwood, tobacco and the miraculous magical spice, the tonka bean.

The unisex fragrance leans to the feminine side obviously, with good sillage and longevity on the skin. A very polarizing scent and it is always different. The opening is the same every time, however I noticed that the dry down depends a lot on the weather conditions and the humidity of the air. On colder days on my skin I can feel the citrus notes and the iris more, while in the hot and humid weather the base notes are more dominant, especially the sandalwood and tobacco. Sample it first!

Snowflakes
Snowflakes on my eyelashes blink.
Prelude:dry, cool, distant, almost bitter.
Just a cool, dark night, when it starts snowing quietly.
Snuggle into the blanket with a freshly powdered baby.
Base: incredibly soft and gentle and soft powdery-creamy, cuddly. Like a caress. Warm.
Maximum contrast in a fragrance that I have never noticed before.
And I didn't like Panthea very much. This one's my top priority on my wish list.
Quiet he is, almost skinnig. As quiet as the snow trickles. Still clearly perceptible

This Iris is not a Teamplayer
Like many other Iris- and "Panthea"-Fans here I waited hot for "Panthea Iris" and could test it last week directly at Harrods.
In order to warn against possible blind quick shots, I have already written a short statement. Now a bit more detailed:
"Panthea Iris" starts with a nice carotty dry note, which is very fine, if you like it like me. It might remind you a little of Iris Nazarena. This dry iris stays in the foreground for some time and I don't really find it to be a nice perfume scent, but it seems to be rather imperfect and has almost annoyed me with time. It looks cool, almost hard, also metallic came to me in the wider sense. I think there's a good portion of musk in there, it's almost something like hairspray, just a little bit, but it keeps that cool impression.
Then I sprayed "Panthea" in comparison and it looks more floral and finished from the beginning. So far I would never have thought of the "Panthea" as a "floral" category, but in a direct comparison it has something floral.
Apropos "Panthea"... "Iris Panthea" slowly changes after about half an hour in the direction of "Panthea", this typical creamy note is now added more and more. Then the scents get closer and closer and after about 1 hour I feel them from the projection as good as the same! "Panthea Iris is a little more accentuated, less soft than Panthea. But I sniff this difference only directly at the strip, not on the skin or in the projection.
To be honest, tuberose would not have occurred to me, especially not the way I usually perceive it, in the direction of chewing gum or orange blossom. I would speak of a maximum of generally white-flowering fragrant, but as I said the "Panthea" is in comparison over long distances even much more floral.
I have so the picture that on the "Panthea" relatively lovelessly a tidy iris portion was set on it, which connects itself in no way harmoniously with the remainder smell, but pushes first very cheekily into the first row and then simply evaporates with the time
So, as I said, even for courageous iris fans there is no unrestricted recommendation to buy from me. And "Panthea" owners probably already have exactly the scent they love with their bottle.

panthea got a sister: panthea iris:

what is at the first fast - bright, wide, airy, brilliant, transparent,
is in the other earthier, powdery, material, fruity-bloody and slower.
for all, for whom "panthea" seemed too little tangible, now a test of "panthea iris" is recommended....
by the way a wonderful twin of" irisistible" by april aromatics, a well deserved finalist of the art and olfaction awards 2019.

Floral, bright, powdery, smooth, delicate, leaning to feminine but still unisex. Very well blended, with the sexiness of the white musk.
