Italian designer Roberto Cavalli has released two new iris-centric creations into their Gold Collection, Bloodiris, and Woodiris. These two perfumes are exclusive to the Middle Eastern market at the time of writing.
Capturing the essence of “blue gold” from the Italian region of Tuscany, Bloodiris focuses on the floral aspects of the valuable orris plant. The top reveals a tangy blood orange, from which the perfume gets it name, that melds into turmeric and valuable orris concrete. The fragrance finishes with softly radiating cashmeran and musk to create an elegantly perfumed utopia.
Perfumer: Fanny Bal
Top – Blood Orange
Heart – Orris Concrete and Turmeric Root
Base – Cashmeran and Musk
Woodiris is another nod towards the precious orris plant, but in a woodier fashion. Mandora is a rarely used perfume ingredient that is grown exclusively in Cyprus and is a cross between mandarin and orange. This shimmering citrus is met with bitter orange and luxurious blue orris. The base reveals the enticing woodiness of sandalwood and patchouli with smooth musk.
