Iris Prima Eau de Parfum
Iris Prima, the new scent from British fragrance house Penhaligon’s, is a work of olfactory choreography, with Iris Absolute in the role of Prima Ballerina. Effortlessly elegant and faintly melancholy, Iris Prima offers a fascinating glimpse into the secluded yet magical world of the ballet.
Head: Bergamot, Green Amber, Pink Pepper
Heart: Iris Absolute, Jasmine Sambac, Hedione, Paradisone
Base: Leather, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Benzoin
A fresh and transparent bergamot opens the dance: its citrus freshness mimicking the graceful flight of the prima ballerina as she leaps into the spotlight. Green amber softens the effect and contrasts with sparkling pink pepper, which resonates like the steps of the ballerina on pointe. Iris soon takes centre stage, eclipsing all around her with her natural grace and powdery charm, until she begins a sensuous pas de deux with potent Jasmine Sambac. In the base, Alberto introduces an intimate, musky leather note to represent the pointe shoe and then light touches of sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla and benzoin to signify the soul of ancient theatres.
In a unique partnership with English National Ballet, Penhaligons set about capturing the very essence of ballet, turning to master perfumer Alberto Morillas as choreographer. Alberto has captured every aspect of this remarkable artistic world in the iconic Penhaligons bottle.
