This new addition to Donna Karan's chic fragrance wardrobe ticks all our bridal boxes. One could describe Iris Eau de Parfum as soft, luminous and romantic, sweet enough to feel feminine but complex enough to be sophisticated and grown-up. One could also describe it as 100% pure YUM.
The starring role is the extracted essence of Iris root (aka Orris), and one of the fragrance world's most precious base-note ingredients that was discovered in quite a mind-boggling way. Someone, one day, decided to dig up an Iris bulb, dry out its root for five (FIVE!) years, grind it to a powder, dissolve it in water and then distill it to extract its oil. The result is a powdery, creamy, sensual scent that smells like great skin and leaves you wanting more.
In this new perfume, it's combined with uplifting florals like Magnolia, Rose de Mai and Violet Flower, and given earthy depth with smoky Vetiver and musky Ambrette Seed. On the skin, it smells simply delicious.
We urge you to have a spritz on counter, close your eyes and think of your wedding vision, and if it all clicks into place you can be sure this high quality perfume will take you from aisle to dancefloor without fading.
