Iris Nazarena Eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family - Woods
Perfume Author - Ralf Schwieger
Mysterious, mystical, sensuous...The rare Iris Bismarckiana is also known as Iris Nazarena because it grows mainly in the mountains east of Nazareth. The uncanny beauty of the blossom, with its brown or purple spots and delicate, bluish-purple veins is the muse of this creation. The suede-soft petals of the mystical muse Iris Nazarena are sketched in a subtle sfumato of brown, purple and white, brushed with powdery iridescense. The limpid ambrette, with its pear, rose and musk facets, sheds the tender light of dawn on the top notes. Rose adds a touch of floral sensuality, while the aromatic, resinous juniper berry introduces the incense theme. The cool, vivid green of star anise conjures the stylised stems and leaves of the flower. Patchouli and vetiver allude to its roots, driven into dark earth and rock. The sacred smoke rising fromt he altars weaves its mineral, leather-scented tendrils throughout the development with incense, clove and oud.
This elegant perfume is presented in a grey velvet box and the smoky glass of the vintage inspired bottle, crowned with the Aedes de Venustas signature baroque gold zamak cap.
