Blond woods, Cedar, Acacia, Birch, Patchouli, Musk
A pleasant orange opening with ylang-ylang, and I get more jasmine than in the original, and a touch of a very faint rose. Again the iris is in the background. It is a bit less sweet on my skin, and the base notes' wood notes are lighter; it is not that sweet on my skin. Silage and projection are not good, more on the restrained side, but, interestingly, the longevity is superior at about six hours, albeit weaker. Less formulaic, I prefer it to the original Iris nobile, but still too stereotypical without convincing by sheer quality and creativity. And there are better Iris scents available - where was my Le Labo again?.
