Xerjoff – Irisss, with its rich woody softness, will beguile even the hardest souls. At the heart of this composition is iris butter, evoking the finest face powders under the softness of cashmere. This central element is dressed with floral and woody constituents; the floral part is composed of rose, jasmine, ylang ylang and violet leaves, while the woody part is composed of vetiver and cedarwood. These elements then sit on a resinous cushion, strengthening the enduring quality of the powdery notes. Despite the nostalgic theme, the execution is resolutely modern and vibrant. The magic of Irisss lies indeed in this extraordinary ability to create a totally new emotion from a very classic foundation.
