It's probably my favorite Hilde Soliani fragrance… kinda candy, but not too.

soft, whispy, but weak with no backbone...it's pleasant and very wearable.

This surprised me. I wasn't expecting to love this scent. I'm not a huge fan of iris but I loved the description and thought I'd give it a shot. Quite pleasing, not startling in any way...a calming smell. I am a fan!

There are some fragrances that you need to "understand" and smell under different angles and in different moods and envirnments to appreciate. This just smells amazing. Right there, smack in your face, "who smells really REALLY great around here"-sort of way. Cloudy and soft, a little melancholic in its feel, but good to the last drop.

I like this smooth, airy, and sweet perfume very much. It creates a happy mood for me. I feel soft and pretty when wearing it. If it was a color, it would be a soft light purple. I think the notes are all blended together very well as not one note really sticks out more than the others... well maybe the orris root a bit more, but not much. I have only 2 complaints: the excessive price and the lasting power. It tends to be quite light after an hour or so. It doesn't completely disappear but it does get much fainter rather quickly. Overall, I do like it a lot though.

wow wow wow!!! I love me some of this. It's so sweet and soft and pretty. If it was a color it would be light purple going to lavender. It has soft silage but it is present, the lasting power could be a bit better though. What's up with the price though?? it's expensive!!

When I wear this I think of those wonderful almond croissants I had on romantic mornings at tartaine in the village. they are simple, and yet, magnificent. this fragrance is so well blended being that it has iris, it never screams IRIS. A mother could wear this with a babe in her arms. I wear this when my nerves are shot and I need to feel safe, and lovely, and pretty and stay at home watching movies in red lipstick and a nice kimono. no one will jump on you when you wear this, they will approach you the old fashioned way, slowly, politely, and then ravish you because you smell like a mix of garden and all the things in there that smell gentle and beautiful. then you feel the need to go in the kitchen and find something italian to eat at midnight.

I have sampled all my testers from luckyscents and have found a new favorite perfume-this one! 90% of the testers were dark, spicy incense perfumes, I threw in Il vs Iris as an afterthought, and am glad that I did. It peeped out from the corner of all the ouds, cinnamon and patchouli fragrances I was hoping to fall in love with. I think it's the perfect everyday perfume to have in a collection. It's easy to wear and has rather good sillage. Not girly-sweet, more fresh and soft, without screaming of that 'clean laudry/clean skin' fragrance that is so popular as of late. Waiting for Luckyscents to get this beauty back in stock so that I can order a bottle!

I bought this a few years ago when Hilde was introducing it in NYC. I am not an Iris fan but I still love this (what's left in the bottle!) Great summer scent - doesn't get too cloying and, on me, it lasts a reasonable time.

Yes, I agree: if you love skin fragrances like l'eau d'Hiver from Jean-Claude Ellena you ll love this creamy Iris with powdery almond too.. just lovely! I ve 2 bottles now..:)

I just purchased a sample vial of this and hope to the high heavens it doesn't get cloying on me! I love Hilde Soliani's other creations, and this one struck my curiosity...We'll see after a few hrs if this is a 'keeper.'

I like how this opens up very light and sparkling - crisp spring blooms. Iris is one of my favorite floral notes because it doesn't have the sharpness that activates my allergies. The drydown in this fragrance is too sweet for me however...I usually love almond notes too, but in here with the heliotrope it becomes a very childlike mix of candy and baby powder.

Just another comment about this one! If you LOVE L'eau D' Hiver,by Jean-Claude Ellena...its almost a dead ringer! but not quite as powdery,and its a little bit sweeter

I had to add 2 more words.....Gourmand Iris.....for all you Gourmand Lovers out there and for the Iris Lovers, its not heavily sweet.

Love it! the previous post sums it up very nicely! Its a very romantic fragrance,soft,very pretty,but not common.

Hilde Soliani has done it again. This is a beautiful uplifting fragrance. Gorgeous Iris fragrance, slightly sweet. The Heliotrope and the almond give this Fragrance the perfect twist to make it utterly yummi and soooooooo wearable.
