Description Iris Silver Mist is an icon of modern perfumery. Famously commissioned by Serge Lutens in the early nineties, Iris Silver Mist was designed to be the iris fragrance. Its creation is the stuff of legend: with Lutens urging perfumer Maurice Roucel to increase the iris note ever more until Roucel added to the composition every material at his disposal with any iris facet. The result speaks for itself: over twenty years after its creation it continues to be the standard by which all other iris fragrances are judged. It is at once rooty, earth, breadlike, carroty, powdery—a swirling cloud of everything that iris can be suspended and circling one another in slow motion.
