After the sell out launch of the trend led Pink Peony & Rhubarb range, with its sparkling floral notes and sharp Rhubarb twist, we wanted to create a ‘darker sister‘ to the feminine, fruity floral fragrance.
Working with key trend influencers and the best perfumers in the UK, we focused on finding an iconic, trend led flower that created a luxurious, modern velvet finish.
An alluring femme fatale, The sultry central Iris note sits alongside delicate tendrils of tuberose and jasmine.
Sumptuous rich cassis partnered with plush plum, is spiked with spicy star anise and pink pepper. The mysterious trail continues with a flash of patchouli, redolent of the seductive smoky character of dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans.
This ephemeral iris fragrance that is elegant and appearing aloof, will surrender on the skin in an opulent caress of beguiling flowers and dark juicy fruits.
Capturing the intricate beauty of the Iris flower, we worked with the incredibly talented Helen Campbell again to illustrate the mood of the fragrance.
Using a series of intricate watercolour layers to create a dramatic 3D painting, the Iris sits beautifully across the Iris & Wild Cassis range and perfectly next to Helen’s previous Peony painting she also created for us.
Developing a complex fine fragrance is fabulously fun and creative, but trying to capture the fragrance within our indulgent body care ranges is a delicate process. A fragrance has to be carefully developed, modified and tweaked to sit beautifully within our luxurious formulas whilst maintaining the complex fragrance notes and profile.
