It took a couple do wears
But this taught me what iris and incense and a certain smokiness could do. It's beautiful and unlike the other irises I've tried. Smoother than Iris Nazarene, which shares the incense; smokier than Iris Silver Mist; without the honeyed woodiness of VC&A Bois d'Iris. I love them all, but this is the one I wear the most.
