Van Cleef & Arpels Bois D'Iris
Iris has a reputation as a diva, and for good reason. Without deft treatment, iris can turn sharply vegetal or flabbily fruity. But in the right hands, and with the highest quality ingredients, the iris is a scent to dream of.
Bois d'Iris is such a fragrance. In Bois d'Iris, perfumer Emilie Copperman strips away anything that might detract from the distinctively rich and powdery lusciousness of iris. Then she adds notes of smoky driftwood and sweet, salty ambergris to harmonize with the flower, giving Bois d'Iris the artistry and compelling simplicity of a Brancusi sculpture. In a few words, Bois d'Iris is deep, luxurious, and easy.
Bois d'Iris is the perfect choice whenever you want to add elegance. Sure, Bois d'Iris is a natural complement to a couture cocktail dress, but if your kind of elegance has to do more with a vintage convertible or a crisp, white shirt, Bois d'Iris suits just as well. We think it's equally gorgeous on men and women, and a few drops in the morning will last all day. Bois d'Iris is a fragrance no connoisseur of iris--or of effortless style--will want to be without.
Notes: Iris, exotic wood, and ambergris
