Isabel Derroisné, a mail beauty and perfume brand exclusive to France, Monaco, and Corsica has a new, iris perfume out called Ame Toscane Reflet d'Iris (Tuscan Soul, Iris Reflection). It is categorized as a fruity floriental and described as a "transparent, ultra-modern composition around iris", with a light powdery touch.
Last year saw a veritable wave of iris fragrances; this year has been more sedate in this regard but at the same time the trend continues to a greater or lesser degree with Maître Gantier et Parfumeur Bois de Turquie, Kenzo Power, Creed Love in Black, John Galliano, sometimes with a pairing with violet this time (Creed; Galliano)...
Notes: top: peach; heart: Tuscan Iris, cedar wood; base: vanilla, musks.
The eau de toilette currently retails for 27 Euros instead of 45 €. By the way, Ilaya, a rich resinous and coffee oriental, is also on promotion now, 29 € instead of 49 € until August 29th 2008. You will just need to find someone in France who can reroute the perfumes! (please note that they have a notice on their site stating that it is illegal to resell their products outside of their network of distribution).
