Iris Eau de Parfum
In Tuscany grows a magnificent flower, chosen by the city of Florence to be its symbol: the iris. This flower’s radiance and elegance is only the beginning of its splendour. Hidden deep in the ground- its root (or rhizome) which produces a unique scent only after six years of slow maturation.
A green and powdery floral fragrance. The rich and velvety scent of Iris and the velvety softness and freshness of the flower with woody accents of the rhizome.
L’Occitane’s Iris Eau de Parfum was created by the perfumer Amandine Marie. (She also created L’Occitane’s Eau d’Iparie.)
