All the intensity of iris is packed into Montale’s new extrait d’parfum. Envision a perfect, early summer evening, the clear, lapis sky studded with stars. The air is cool and delightfully warm all at once. Beneath the jeweled sky, a regal home is illuminated by moonlight. Glinting marble and the dark sculpture of carved hedgerows creates a sense of profound privacy. Two people move within this palatial landscape, winding their way from cool stone into the manicured wild of a vast garden. Sheathed in navy and cream silks, their sinuous forms seem to flow through the air, effortlessly. Navy represents all that is smart, stylish and controlled in iris whereas cream illustrates its buttery, orris soul.
This elegant, dark-light duality is the hallmark of So Iris: additionally reinforced by a powdery, verdant sandalwood (which highlights dusty orris) and a seamless, feather light white musk (which heightens the purple-navy Narcissian petals of our star flower), this scent is a balanced study of the contrasting charms of iris. Minimalist in its components yet maximalist in its impact, So Iris Intense is unforgettably beauty on skin.
