The Moroccan mimosa absolute in Iris Perle is extracted in their lab from carefully hand-selected flower buds only, whereas the entire flower and stem is usually used in other perfumes with mimosa notes. This results in a smoother and richer floral note without unwanted herbaceous qualities.
The huge amount of the most expensive perfume ingredient in the world, orris, makes Iris Perle at once earthy, cool, sensual, and creamy. It takes seven years from the time it’s planted until it’s extracted for orris root to deliver its oil, like a pearl in the world of perfumery. Iris Perle gets its French orris from “grand cru” crops exclusive to Les Indémodables.
