An incredibly noble material, majestic iris blossoms in this new chapter of L’Art & La Matière. An extraordinary, explosive encounter between full-bodied flavour and subtle softness, as smooth and powdery iris Pallida meets powerful coffee in a clash of olfactory forces.
Delphine Jelk wanted to “make the iris smile and allow it to display its vibrant energy”, like the tête-à-tête of fragrances that occurs when the cosmetic scent of lipstick meets a steaming-hot cup of coffee.
The coffee-coloured perfume is housed in a bottle with sleek, modern contours, adorned with a golden metal panel on the edge, just like a precious hardback book. The bottle is nestled within a “leather-feel” amethyst case (that can be turned into a jewellery box as you wish).
A majestic iris combined with vibrant coffee notes: a powdery floral heart beating to the rich scent of espresso.
Top notes: Coffee, Bergamot, Cardamom
Heart notes: Iris Pallida, Ambrette
Base notes: Opopanine, Vanilla Tincture, Sandalwood
At the heart, sensuous iris blooms in its most exceptional variety: iris pallida butter, enriched by the presence of ambrette seed.
The top notes immediately reveal intense and full-bodied coffee, accentuated with cardamom and a hint of zesty bergamot.
At Guerlain, the iris features in the guerlinade and numerous compositions. Since the early 20th century, it has blossomed in Après L’Ondée and flourished in L’Heure Bleue. The oriental Shalimar also incorporates iris in its composition.
Today, a new iris flourishes in the L’Art & La Matière collection in its most precious form: iris Pallida butter.
