 Reviews of Frederic Malle Iris Poudre

From Olfactoria's Travels - "I do not think Iris Poudre is ideally named, since I don’t think it is a very powdery scent. I like powder, but I can’t find it here in such a prominent place as to name the perfume after it. What is prominent though is a blast of aldehydes in the top notes."

From Eaumg - "It’s soft, feminine, so much so that it is borderline campy like walking around in a feather boa and marabou mules. My life has been too serious lately and I admit that I need more of this frou-frou camp in my life. Iris Poudre makes me smile."

From A Bottled Rose - "However, there is even more going on in Iris Poudre than that. There is greater depth and substance than the soft-focus image of a movie star would suggest. I’ve found there is strength behind the feather boa and a wilfulness beneath the come-hither eyes."

    Signature Scent Material

    To me, iris poudre smells like quiet glamour. The powder is present but kept in check, and the iris, while not rooty and earthy in this iteration, isn't too precious or made too sweet by its accompaniments either. I say "quiet" because everything is so seamlessly composed, not because this is a skin scent. Iris poudre has moderate sillage and will follow you through the day. I love it.

    Ahhh

    I have been meaning to try a number of Frederic Malle fragrances for awhile, but even the samples add up and I've been feeling jade about the promise of a new scent (so many disappointments). I finally narrowed my samples to three, though admittedly there are a few more I'd like to try.
    I. Love. This.....
    Soft iris and powder, delicate floral, the powder is neither overwhelming nor in any way reminiscent of nappy powder. Such a beautifully balanced fragrance: Not too sweet, no clunky wood and/or vanilla dry-down. The aldehydes (?) do not shriek. There IS vanilla in the dry-down, but it whispers. All the flowers I love are in there: iris, jasmine, violet, rose, magnolia, ylang ylang, carnation, lily of the valley, but they are so soft and harmonious: this is lovely all the way through. Elegant. I'm so glad I tried it. Now I'll have to save up for an FB (...or travel spray). Mother's Day, maybe (hint, hint).

    Delicate iris

    I tend to like rootier, more robust, and dryer takes on Iris (Iris Silver Mist, Iris Cendre); here that aspect of the iris makes the powder and aldehydes, which I generally don't like, work for me. If I am in the wrong mood, it's a little too much, but when its right it's perfect.

    Iris Poudre

    Very elegant. Hints of Chanel.

    I did not go with five stars because I am not certain how I feel about the lingering powder. I will have to try another sample!

    Old school floral tamed for modern tastes.

    Iris Poudre is one of the few grand aldehylic florals I can actually stomach; separated by ca. 80 years from those who appreciated them at their inception (I'm talking to you, Chanel No. 5), I find most of them to smell "rich" but unwearable: overpowering and cloying, flowers rotting in syrup, bringing to mind an aging, over-rouged dowager. Iris Poudre is different: it retains that grand old floral feel, the class and cache, but, as with most Frederic Malle scents, has been masterfully (perfectly) blended into something unique. The classic floral is subdued and freshened, like an iris bloom plus a little of its root (though nowhere near as "green" as Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist), and softened by a small dose of powder, which is most felt on the drydown. It has respectable longevity and retains that classic substantial sillage, so apply sparingly. A nice, wearable fragrance for those who find traditional aldehylic florals too assertive.

    Iris Poudre by Frederic Malle

    This is my very favorite fragrance, and I was so happy to find it in a size I could almost afford (it sucks, having fantastic taste and no $$) This arrived very quickly and is heavenly, as always - I am very picky about fragrances - most offend me. This is the smell of class, and I wish everything in my world could smell like it!!
