Perfumeheads, lend me your noses … Iris edition

I’m looking out for to search out a brand new every day scent due to my faves help getting discontinued, and per chance you would possibly well well well also help. I was happily wearing Korres (Greek firm) Iris Lily of the Valley Cotton (the same to Prada Infusion d’Iris) for years, and for several years sooner than that Ivoire by Balmain (no longer the flanker Eau d’Ivoire!), additionally discontinued. Now I’m wearing Van Cleef & Arpels Series Extraordinaire Bois d’Iris, nevertheless or no longer it is miles no longer quite correct for me…

Without sharp noteworthy about body spray, I if truth be told accumulate navigated naturally in the direction of iris scents, most effective realizing later that it was the customary ingredient in most perfumes I luxuriate in … nevertheless I most effective luxuriate in an supreme kind, and I make no longer know how to express or probe for the acceptable salvage of iris. The iris scents I luxuriate in are inclined to be characterized as “depressed,” though my feeling about them is a puny bit diversified. (More luxuriate in, how to feel cozy, utter material, dreamy and relaxed indoors on an chilly, stormy day vs feeling oppressed, heavy and headachey on a hot, sunny day — I luxuriate in the feeling of an charisma of chilliness enclosing a coronary heart of sunshine, subtle warmth).
Abject disasters: I make no longer mind “powdery” nevertheless there is one roughly iris scent that repels me, and I learned it in Chanel N ° 19 Poudre (I accumulate! it was a pattern on eBay, and would possibly well well well no longer were dependable), and L’ Erbolario Iris: very cosmetic/powdery heavy, very loud, very oppressive. I scrubbed my wrists to look at out to salvage these off, though others esteem them. They gave me the same reaction as Estee Lauder Formative years Dew, which I despise.
Per chance luxuriate in or per chance esteem: Hermes Hiris. I accumulate not had the likelihood to look at out this beyond a fleeting spray in a division store, nevertheless or no longer it is additionally too costly for me. I preferred what I attempted, nevertheless it was barely a presence on my pores and skin that very warm day of strolling about quite a puny bit. That can well well well if truth be told be okay, or even good, nevertheless my journey is severely limited, and I’d luxuriate in a more practical choice.
No longer quite there: Prada Infusion d’Iris is a puny bit too frosty and excessive — it lacks the comfy heart that the Korres Iris had. The Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d’Iris is great, nevertheless a puny bit too candy for me. The composition is “amber, labdanum, vanilla, grey amber, myrrh, vetiver, iris, driftwood, frankincense, sugar,” and I accumulate the trouble lies is within the “sugar,” and per chance “vanilla.” I attempted Jacomo Silences because it has been instructed because the same to Ivoire, and or no longer it is if truth be told, if truth be told no longer. Or no longer it is nice ample, nevertheless it regarded quite flat and listless to me. I make no longer know how to list that, nevertheless what I explore is salvage of lilting, per chance a puny bit ethereal, nevertheless additionally advanced. I attempted a pattern of Le Galion Iris and preferred it quite a puny bit, nevertheless it seems that this has additionally been discontinued. (No longer sure, nevertheless or no longer it is miles no longer accessible from any of the locations I expose from and reward supplies are quite high, the vogue they salvage for final stock of discontinued scents.)
Varied: I make no longer luxuriate in noteworthy larger than I make luxuriate in when it involves perfumes for myself. I make no longer luxuriate in fruity, candy, animated, gourmands, orientals, aquatics, citruses, or heavy floral. I make no longer luxuriate in “horny” or “harmless.” I make no longer usually luxuriate in soliflores. I luxuriate in green notes, nevertheless if a scent is described as “green,” I usually make no longer luxuriate in it; likewise “woody,” “musky” or “leather.” As portion of a composition they’re good, nevertheless if that is the observe to list the scent, then or no longer it is too noteworthy “that.” I if truth be told make no longer luxuriate in rose scents. I roughly luxuriate in one of the primitive 80s scents luxuriate in Van Cleef & Arpel First, and Yves St. Laurent Rive Gauche (that salvage of “neighborhood” of scents), nevertheless they give the affect of being system too forward and loud. I luxuriate in “light nevertheless advanced,” “aloof nevertheless provocative.” I luxuriate in “wrapped in a mist, fleeting.” I luxuriate in “super, frosty, peaceable, nevertheless a puny bit mysterious.” What I luxuriate in is elusive, both by system of discovering it, and the device it affords!
I’d very happily plod serve to wearing both the Korres Iris or Balmain Ivoire if I could well well well, nevertheless that is no longer an choice, and I will’t utilize too noteworthy money taking a look for around. eBay samples are gathered quite costly with shipping to my arena, and I’m no longer going out to division stores to smell bottles, so I’d esteem some direction!
Exact now I’m making an allowance for of attempting Guerlain’s L’Heure Bleue as a blind select. Any thoughts on that one? Moreover, I could well well well per chance give you the money for to salvage the Hermes Hiris as soon as a yr for my birthday or something and originate it final. I’m correct no longer sure on that one, nevertheless will are attempting to test it over again if I will, so whenever you would possibly well well accumulate opinions on that, please portion! (Moreover, sorry for the scale, nevertheless you realize how important it is to focus on scent characteristics … the phrase “dancing about architecture” involves mind, so I attempted to present more data moderately than much less!)
