Iris Noir, which was released in 2007, is the third fragrance to be added on Yves Rocher’s Secrets d’ Essences collection. It is characterized as an oriental floral and a tad chypre. The scent opens with bergamot, carrot seed and coriander, develops to find iris, and then settles with patchouli, tonka bean and styrax. Nathalie Gracia-Cetto and Olivier Pescheux worked side by side to concoct the fragrance.
Iris Noir by Yves Rocher Review
Iris scents are not an exception in the world of perfumes, but Yves Rocher manages to give us Iris Noir which offers an interesting take on the note. Instead of just being sweet, the iris accord is complemented by what feels like booze as well as citrus and mint. Coriander gives the fragrance more character as it adds a little ‘dirt’ on sweet, and this supports the iris all the way until it fades on the skin. It is affordable and easy to wear, but requires a little more tolerance because it still is saccharine.
We find that the lovely although faint iris lasts all the way until drydown
The coriander distinguishes Iris Noir from the rest of iris perfume for its ‘dirty’ vibe
Moderate sillage and longevity
More accessible compared to other designer scents
Not for those who are not fond of sweet fragrances
