L'Artisan Parfumeur's 2007 entry in their limited edition vintage harvest series (see Fleur d'Oranger and Fleur de Narcisse) will be Iris Pallida, a powdery floral woods fragrance. As with the prior two harvest scents, the perfumer is Anne Flipo.
Iris Pallida is based on Tuscan Iris, the symbol of Florence. The notes include lily of the valley, orange blossom, Turkish rose, anise, violet leaves, cedar, vetiver, iris absolute, ambrette seed, white musk, gaïac wood and patchouli.
L'Artisan Iris Pallida launches in September, and will be available in 100 ml Eau de parfum for $295. 3000 numbered and engraved bottles will be produced. As with the past scents in the series, the outer packaging will be a wooden box, meant to evoke the presentation of vintage wines.
