Perfumer Maurice Roucel
Gender Unisex

Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist was created by Maurice Roucel, one of maybe two Serge Lutens fragrances that were not created by Chrisopher Sheldrake. Rumor has it that during the making of Iris Silver Mist, Serge Lutens kept telling Roucel that he didn't have enough iris (pallida) in the fragrance, put more in, until Roucel dumped every iris compound he could find in it, took it back, and Serge pronounced it perfect, and that became Iris Silver Mist. This is the pinnacle of iris. Remember, iris is not the flower, it is the root, and it tends to smell a little carotty at the top. Iris Silver Mist has that charming little spice note that you don't notice for a while until that blast of iris starts clearing out, and then you smell it, flitting along like a little butterfly in this Iris-zilla.

Product Reviews

  1. Didn't live up to expectation 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jun 2015

    Difficult to say what I expected. I guess something ethereal, judging by the name Iris Silver Mist. This starts off with a sharp and piercing note. Someone wrote that this was the rootiest iris fragrance. Well it certainly calls to mind an amplified raw carrot. Vegetal with a touch of bitterness. It also conjures up thoughts of cold earth or soil. Wonder if this would attract bunnies? There's also something there that makes me think of vinyl. Seems pretty linear. An interesting olfactory experiment, however it's not a smell that draws me in. Each to their own I suppose. I'm glad I've satisfied my curiosity.


  2. Gray as gray can be! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jun 2015

    Yowza - the bitterness settles in your throat and stays there. It's like breathing powdered metal. Not sure I even consider this a "perfume" because it does not smell nice (like a lot of Lutens, actually), but it is so powerful and so bizarre that I keep it around. As an artifact of perfumery, it gets 5 stars for sheer strangeness. As a fragrance, I wear it very sparingly because it is gray gray gray! I can detect a little clove and vetiver, but the overall effect is powerful powdery metallic. Paired with a few drops of a good peach, it would probably approximate the legendary, extinct Iris Gris.


  3. Absolutely Gorgeous 5 Star Review

    An earthy and elegant unisex scent in my opinion. I love Iris perfumes and this one does not disappoint! One of the most unique that I've tried so far.

    Unmistakably the most beautiful iris on earth(ground), thank you surrender to chance


  5. I am smitten... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2012

    This fragrance is unusual, but I find it wearable. Lately, I have not been liking sharp perfumes or burnt cedars. For example, I admire, but cannot wear, Bois de Violettes. I almost did not sample this one, despite my search for iris fragrances, because it has notes of cedar and incense and is unisex (not my usual preference). But I love it enough to want a full bottle. I am not a Serge Lutens groupie--on the contrary. Try this if you love iris.


  6. Different 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2012

    Es un perfume original, quizás demasiado para los no atrevidos. El olor de la zanahoria en la salida, puro jugo, se mezcla con un olor terroso y metálico. Tiene muchas similitudes con Bois d Violette. Para los que busquen un iris distinto, o un olor diferente o simplimente un perfume fresco y original.
