Conceptually Shermine is iris morphing into ermine, a cool woody material (which iris can be) turning into clouds of caressing powdery fantasy iris.
The perfumer hinted at the many faces of iris. Cardamom and lavender show how cool and aqueous iris can be. The Argentinian lemon note brings out the crispiness and sparkle and vanilla and musks highlight the creamy softness. Finally, clouds of classic powdery iris woodiness come out on the mix of vetiver, patchouli and guaïac wood.
