Lavender slaps me in the face momentarily, then a creamy mix of an amber and Tonka accord immediately rise up. Lavender weaves in and out... Ever so slowly iris moves in. It increases. It's dry for the most part. It isn't massive but, it's there.
The base is dry with an incense that seems woody, although I couldn't tell you what kind of wood. Later it reveals a bit more floral aspects, always with the woody-incense thing lingering. Iris rises and falls. Overall, this is lovely. Not a strong, pungent thing.
Gris Clair is a great lavender fragrance with tonka and iris that bring a sweetness to the greenness of the lavender. I like it! It's been a very pleasant day with Gris Clair. If you like lavender fragrances, this is a nice one to have in your wardrobe. It's at least worth a sample in my opinion.
Put an old rusty cast iron kettle full of water on stove, when the it begins to sizzle, open the lid, that rusty metallic, simultaneously hot and cold smell of boiled steam will hit you like a punch in your face.
This is what the opening of this perfume feel like.
Gris Clair has an interesting opening, and smells a little like the fumes coming off a skillet warming up on the stove, or the smoke from a candle, but it peters out into a grainy, unappealing scent in about an hour. It continues to fall apart and becomes borderline offensive and possibly headache inducing around the two-hour mark.
