A clean, graceful iris that opens with a dizzying rush of fresh citrus. Bergamot, orange and a particularly bright and breezy lemon mingle with green notes to give this an exuberant beginning – all youth and innocence and laughter. Then, the floral heart emerges, pierced with ginger and a pepper that tingles like the blush of a first crush. Soaring orange blossom is artfully blended with a stunning rendition of just-bloomed iris, with grace notes of earth and root that give it a soft, suede-like feel. Iris fragrances are sometimes brooding and melancholy, but this is sun drenched and dreamy, with just a hint of wistfulness. The crisp tartness of lemon never fades entirely, but nestles with the cool iris to create something lovely and unexpected. We picture yellow irises and green grass under a brilliant enamel blue sky and remember the first time a crush blossomed into real romance. How amazed we were that something so simple could become so complex in the space of a heartbeat.
