Powdery woody: Iris Cendre by Naomi Goodsir. Try this perfume to get an idea of how the warehouse where they dry, mature and process iris roots might smell. The air would be musky, sweet in the unique powdery orris way, with a hint of an ancient Vatican library and the alchemist-herbalists lab at the same time.
Top notes: bergamot, mandarin.
Heart: frankincense, orris (iris root), violet.
Base notes: amber, labdanum, tobacco
Also featured in the new Extracting Roots edit and sample pack as a perfect illustration of the orris note.
