A Sunny Iris
This is a very pretty fragrance. I wasn't sure how mimosa and iris would work together, as it seemed like a very unusual combination, but I am surprised to find that they complement each other very well. The mimosa starts out sweet, but the green notes and bergamot keep the sweetness in check. Then iris joins the mix, adding a lightly powdery, clean facet. I love the addition of violet leaf in fragrances, finding it adds a lovely garden-fresh dimension whenever used. It is no different here, giving this fragrance a freshness that's not typical of iris dominant perfumes. This is not the usual powdery iris fragrance with the obligatory vanilla note, so if you expect that you may be disappointed here. While I like those Iris fragrances too, this is very different. It's bright, light, and crisp and has an upbeat quality about it. Performance wise, I get excellent silage and longevity. Not beast mode, but I was aware of it most of the day. While this is a strong like right now, it has potential to become a love.
