Infusion d'Iris Eau de Parfum Absolue

Posted in

Launched in March 2012 by Italian fashion house Prada, Infusion d'Iris Eau de Parfum Absolue is the more intense version of Infusion d’Iris Eau de Parfum, which was launched in 2007.

Built around iris, it opens with a zing of bitter neroli softened with sweetness from orange blossom. While the top notes linger powdery, dry iris shows up its cool nobility, playing off the warmth of the orange blossom. Iris is a powerful note and it certainly has presence here. It’s not aggressive or bold, but intense, rich and luxurious. At the base, resinous benzoin gives it a medicinal, almost balsamy, note which adds depth. Tonka bean adds a spicy/vanilla dimension that complements the sweetness of vanilla, while white musk gives it an arousing, animalic note.

Cool rooty iris, balsamy, sweet and arousing - Infusion d'Iris Eau de Parfum Absolue gets romantic real fast.

This is a standout fragrance that has earned a place at the top of my list of fragrances never to run out of.
