Indie line House of Cherry Bomb has launched Iris Oud, a new fragrance.
House of Cherry Bomb is thrilled to introduce Iris Oud, the new Grande Dame of the HOCB Atelier line. We have embraced classic French perfumery for this fragrance, blending an array of natural iris, violet and vanilla notes with our sultry and complex Oud accord; created of vintage and rare oils from around the world, with a base of deep forest notes, touches of honey, and echos of Arabian jasmine.
Deep, decadent, elegant and remarkably complex, Iris Oud is a perfume which carries many secrets within. We played with a melange of vintage notes vibrating with leather-smoke-dirt, enwrapping the more delicate beeswax absolute, powdery florals. Yet, there is a humidity within: chypre and fougère that resonate with moss and earth.
The fragrance recollects evening forests: silken slippers treading on wet, fallen leaves, satin cloaks caught on dark branches overhead.
Iris Oud whispers a tale if you take a moment to listen…
House of Cherry Bomb Iris Oud is $100 for 30 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found at the brand's Etsy shop.

It really sounds interesting.
Has Iris Oud been done before?
Yes! Aedes Iris Nazarena comes to mind, and I know there are others but can’t think of them now.
There is oud in Iris Nazarena? Never would have guessed. I don’t smell it.
It’s not strong, and it’s not bandaid-y.
