Iris Nobile Eau de Parfum, Acqua di Parma
Acqua di Parma's Iris Nobile, launched in Autumn of 2004, is the first fragrance in the house's history to have been formulated exclusively for women.
A supremely elegant and slightly moody fragrance, we're thrilled to have it and you'll be thrilled to get it. Available here in Eau de Parfum - which elevates this iris experience to a dizzying height.
An extraordinarily feminine and unique fragrance.
The iris flower is a symbol of the Italian patrimony, the emblematic flower of Florence and of the Medici family. Additionally, the iris is characteristic of high-end perfumery. Used for the refinement of its perfume, it is a flower that is both difficult to distillate and extremely expensive: The production of 3.4 oz. of essence requires 3,527 ounces of fresh petals. Iris is also the emblem of an Italian universe, luxurious and exclusive, as is the world of Acqua di Parma. The scent combines the transparent surprise of star anise, mandarin from Sicily, bergamot from Calabria and cedar flower. It finishes with an infusion of vanilla from Madagascar and ambrette crystals.
Iris Nobile is as soft as a kitten's belly and imbued with precious flowers that are at once fresh and regal - a string of adjectives that may well apply to you.
Iris plays a strong role in Italian history, and word has it that Iris Nobile Eau de Parfum has affected the perfume industry just as powerfully.
Top Notes: Star Anise, Iris Petals, Sicilian Tangerine, Bergamot from Calabria.
Heart Notes: Cedar Flower, Concrete d'Iris & Orange Blossom Water.
Base Notes: Ambrette Crystal, Iris Rhizomes & Infusion of Vanilla from Madagascar.
Presented in the Acqua di Parma legendary Art Deco bottle, Iris Nobile Eau de Parfum is a stupendous addition to the family of perfumes that is, hands down, the last word in carefree, confident, breezy luxury. (And we harbor no doubts whatsoever that had this been available at the time, Audrey and Ava and Cary would have snatched this one up and made it their own.)
Available in two sizes; simply select from the drop-down box.
Luscious Footnote: also to be had on our Acqua di Parma page (and shelves) in myriad applications (Iris Nobile Sublime Eau de Parfum, Iris Nobile Eau de Toilette, Shower Cream, Perfumed Soaps, Candle, etc.) Look-see worthy, indeed.
