Fragrance

Iris des Champs opens with an accord of bergamot, lily of the valley and pink pepper, evoking the freshness of the morning dew. The sensual heart pulses with an alluring bouquet of iris, rose, jasmine Sambac and ylang ylang. The velvety smooth finale concludes with warm and woody notes.

Iris des Champs: The concept

Iris is a plant with elegant and stylish flowers that conceals a hidden treasure. Already considered sacred by the Egyptians, the iris became, under the heraldic name of Lily, the symbol of royalty in France. Surprisingly, it is not its sublime flower but its underground part that holds this olfactory treasure; the rhizomes, the roots of the flowers contain the Irone, a unique fragrant and rich molecule that makes up the iris notes. The flower itself has no smell. Many perfumers have worked with this fabulous raw material, unveiling its earthy facets but none of them has given thought to what the smell of the flower should be. Houbigant has taken a completely different approach by creating an olfactory interpretation of the flower. The perfume ouverture evokes the freshness of the morning dew with bergamot, lily of the valley and pink pepper. The sensual hart pulses with an alluring bouquet of iris, rose, jasmin sambac and ylang ylang. The velvety smooth finale concludes with warm and woody notes.

Iris des Champs

Perfume extracts are the purest expression of perfume - sophisticated, long-lasting, every facet in greater harmony.

Pure perfume extracts indulge olfactory senses with an in excelsis distillation, each note scored in perfect harmony and cadence. In existence since the early nineteenth-century, unfiltered essences were diluted with alcohol to boost aerosol diffusion and to alleviate obstructions in the flacon's puffer. Advances in modern perfumery have made those techniques obsolete; deposits are meticulously-filtrated after maceration. Creating complex, extracted formulas comes at a cost and only a handful of notable perfumers offer extracted essences. This esteemed craftsmanship underpins the House of Houbigant’s two-century-old legacy of innovation, distinction and authority.
