Inspired by a trip to Rome where Naomi stumbled upon a wonderful art supplies store. The scent of the store evoked a nostalgia that needed to be interpreted into perfume. Naomi perfectly created this airy and gentle scent whilst celebrating the buttery note of Iris in Iris Cendré. Imagine the incredible smell of brisk walk in the rain, your woollen hat getting slightly damp, then the smell of beautiful, high quality paper as you explore the wonders of the art supplies store. The clean smell of comfort and possibility, a floral tone with an understated sensuality.
Top: Bergamot, Tangerine, Spices
Middle: Iris, Incense, Violet
Base: Cistus, Labdanum, Tobacco, Amber
HOW IT WEARS
Iris Cendré beautifully heroes the Iris note creating a dry, green floral tone with a hint of powder. There is a smokiness that does come out on the skin but never overpowers the Iris. Iris Cendré is an Eau de Parfum so we get a good, long wear of around 8 hours on the skin – it isn’t too loud but is always distinctive.
We love how evocative all of Naomi Goodsir’s fragrances are, and we love the story of the art store, the slightly damp wool scent. Iris Cendré is slightly smoky which creates such a gorgeous twist on the traditional Iris perfumes!
