Rooty, unsweet iris, amplified by carrot seed note. Woods in the base.
This really does remind me of the legendary and hideously expensive Xerjoff 17/17 Irisss, though not quite as good/rich, nor having quite the longevity. Nevertheless, it's rather pleasant, and much easier on the wallet. Not as sweet as the other Irisss nearly-similar, Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue (but that is discontinued, and perhaps commands stupid prices), and not nearly so reminiscent of wet cardboard as Hiris.
Cool crisp and dry. I really get the influence of carrot seed oil here with its earthy, cool dirt aroma. All of the notes have a cool side to them and this is reinforced and amplified off of each other to positive effect. I notice the cedarwood and iso e super definitely. A slight bit of greenness is there too. This is a very useful fragrance. It is not a masterpiece, but very enjoyable to wear, and is cleansing in a quiet way. 6 / 10
Can't believe the notes that are supposed to be used here. I was told the effect looked for was 'wet concrete'. Well that has certainly been achieved as it smells of.. well.. nothing really. I may need to revisit.
