Iris Poudre Perfume by Frederic Malle, Iris Poudre provides a subtle hint of feminine mystique. Its top notes ylang-ylang, violet, and rose entice the senses – inviting you to draw in one more breath.
As you do, you notice a more balanced scent than you first considered. The introductory notes are completed with iris in the mid-tones, but there’s also a sensual musky essence. The base tones of musk, sandalwood, and tonka bean reveal the depth of this olfactory experience.
The partnership between Frederic Malle and Pierre Bourdon creates a masterful experience. The result of this perfume launched in 2000 is an unforgettable moment that, even as it slips from your immediate recollection, still lingers as a cherished memory. Its outer packaging belies the surprising charisma that awaits you. Boxed in simple black with crisp white lettering, it reveals the bottle that’s simpler still. It quietly guards what it has to offer. Understatement is an art form.
