The way they describe the fragrance makes my head hurt a little, but have a go... "Their olfactory manifesto: to create the first ever feminine iris. Daring to break through traditional codes to invent a new kind of olfactory language. Drawing on the original art of perfumery, they opted for the strength of simplicity. No pre-manufactured base, nothing but pure, not recomposed ingredients. A “quintessential” fragrance free of the superfluous, whose narrative is composed of just 63 ingredients, allowing each to be fully expressed. A richly simple balance blending the rare nobility of Iris, the stirring depth of patchouli and the child-like delights of a gourmand accord. Ingredients were selected one by one among perfumery’s most noble natural raw materials for their exceptional qualities, before being refined, sublimated or densified - whilst preserving their soul - by perfumery’s cutting-edge technologies." If that's made you as baffled as me, have a go at watching the 'behind the scenes' instead.
