Alkemia Black Iris was created by Sharra Lamoureaux and is described as "The spring forecast is rainy with a chance of purple. Royal purple iris and Queen Elizabeth orris root pillowed in a soft nimbostratus raincloud."
From the brand:
“That swimming, sloping, elusive something about the dark-bluish tint of the iris which seemed still to retain the shadows it had absorbed of ancient, fabulous forests where there were more birds than tigers and more fruit than thorns, and where, in some dappled depth, man’s mind had been born." – Vladimir Nabakov
This is the alcohol-free spray. It is also free of parabens, phthalates, PDGs and other unpleasant things. Alkemia is a hand-blended and small batch perfumery using natural essences, ethically rendered accords, and lab-created aroma molecules.
Too new for reviews
