From the brand -
“The strength of dry sand winds. A bright game of light. Fiery leather. A caress of emerald reflections. Majestic and nearly insolent petals, coming into bloom while facing the elements of Nature.” It is with those words that the brand's founder and owner, Thibaud Crivelli, describes his most striking encounter with iris flowers. A wild, untouched setting where this delicate flower unveiled its most inner strength. The powdery trails of those fragile flowers echoing with verdant, dry, animalic and soft notes. A unique sensorial capture, which gives Iris Malikhân an asserted and contemporary signature."
Fragrantica - "Iris Malikhan is one of the most unusual fragrances I ever smelled. But I like it!! The opening is definitely on the challenging side. I still enjoy it though. But the dry-down is very lovely. It's honestly so hard for me to describe. I agree with what someone mentioned below-- it's a true fragrance journey. It's like a creamy, slightly woody, and green iris. This iris isn't reminiscent of lipstick & makeup bags. It's more fairy like; an airy iris with some creamy elements. I also pick up on the mimosa note. It adds another dimension of airy-ness. If you're into fragrances that aren't run of the mill then you need to try her."
Fragrantica - "This one is a scent journey. Opening is earthy and leathery evocative of soil, sticks, branches- it’s strong and not inviting. But the dry-down starts to develop fairly quickly 10 mins in, evolving into a lovely greenish-balsamic-iris-powdery-vanillic base atop smooth non-animalic leather in the background, staying that way for the duration of wear. Projection is subtle and longevity fair. This blooms best on skin, a paper test wont do."
Fragrantica - "This is such a unique perfume, very unisex but on my skin this is a slightly sweet earthy leather. Smells like a supernatural forrest being, very natural, I love it. "
