Discover the latest Santa Maria Novella Eau de Parfum, L’Iris.

It is the first Eau de Parfum created by Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella after more than 800 years of activity. At the base of the olfactory construction lies the iris butter (“concreta d’iris”) extracted from the flower’s rhizomes: extremely precious, they need 6 years of maturation.

The most elegant raw material among poudré ingredients, it is combined with bright top notes such as neroli, timur pepper and galbanum, and proceeds in a flowery heart made by geranium, jasmine sambach and magnolia champaca. Finally, it arrives at the base, where a classic florentine origin iris unveils Florence itself through a balanced olfactory discovery.

Envisioned by the creative nose Gian Luca Perris, L’Iris reinterprets the history of Florence, celebrating its many and multifaceted connections with the flower that stands as its symbol still today. But also by recalling the legend of the goddess Iris, messenger of the Olympus, and a flower that was already known by the Egyptian, Greek and Latin civilisations. The transparent glass bottle houses a velvety label with a Maison's historic logo, and a golden and engraved zamac alloy cap that reflects its shapes. Available in spray version of 50 ml and 100 ml.

Grace, technique, mystery and elegance are distilled in an Eau de Parfum that crafts the essence of time itself.

SMN

Smells incredible but for this price point I’d want the scent to last longer. I bought it when it was 40% off so I just spritz away. Leans a touch more feminine but I suppose that is an anachronism. The smell i smell is sweet herbaceous petrichor.

A beautiful iris perfume

This perfume is great for iris lovers - the top notes are powdery iris that dry down to a soft white floral with powdery notes. It actually reminds me of a Avon perfume I had a a child. It’s inoffensive and while not terribly long lasting, it has a very high quality and is a clean smelling perfume that is perfect for spraying on if you’re in the mood for relaxation after a bath or before bed.

It is reasonably priced for iris perfumes that tend to be pretty expensive

Delicate Powdery Scent

I would reach for this fragrance in the evening after a shower and before bed, it is warm and powdery, and dries down into a gentle soapy scent that stays close to the skin. This would be best worn at the end of summer coming into autumn days. I find the synthetic musk slightly off putting when I first spray but thankfully this does settle down fairly quickly. I wouldn’t expect to turn heads wearing this from a spillage and longevity perspective.
