Controversial discourse between author & imaginary reader about marzipan cake. An outline in 8 paragraphs
Already after briefly dealing with my new hobby "perfume" I came across (of course) the brand Guerlain and the mysterious so-called "Guerlinade". After a short research it seems to be a mixture of rose, jasmine, neroli, iris, tonka & vanilla (& bergamot? Depending on the source) and is described as "almondy" or "iris+vanilla" or "buttery". Now, I've been able to test a few Guerlains so far and yes, even my untrained nose imagines to smell some kind of red thread. Especially with "Mon précieux Nectar" and the recently tested "Après l'Ondée" the following note overlaps ALL notes of the pyramid after a very short time: light-fluffy, powdery-sugary, freshly baked sponge cake and buttery marzipan cake. Why cake? I don't know, but the scents both go in a sweet-gourmand direction for me.

imaginary reader: Hey, wait a minute with your amateurish comments about Guerlain. I thought I was here on a comment about a Prada! What does that have to do with "Infusion d'Iris" now anyway!

Well, well, dear reader.
Also with "Infusion d'Iris" I smell after a short time this special marzipan cake touch. First fresh-fruity tangerine and a delicate green blossom on a pond, but only very briefly, then the marzipan comes along and butter, warm butter, and overlays like the two Guerlains ALL other notes of the pyramid.

imaginary reader: Mmm, okay, is your subjective impression, but, times purely factually, I thought the Guerlinade consists of rose, jasmine, neroli, iris, tonka & vanilla? Of which is here yes only iris & neroli in it!

Jaja, I do not understand it either!!! However, the benzoin is vanilla, right? Maybe that's good as a substitute for vanilla & tonka - anyway - anyway, now you've brought me out.
Clears throat. The "Infusion d'Iris" manages not to become too cakey on me. Something pleasantly citrusy remains throughout the fragrance. Somehow, the fragrance is pleasant - and sorry again to all Guerlain lovers and Parfumos with far greater knowledge of fragrances than I - this infusion reminds me of "Après l'Ondée", only in better.

imaginary reader: Ah, now slowly I see your point. But did you like the fragrance now? That's why I read this whole comment. Actually, I just want to know how you can imagine the approximately and what do I get? Unfounded gibberish about Guerlinaden and cake--

Okay Then just the standard comment content: at first I liked it, tangerine & flower was nice, then it became too buttery marzipan cake-like for me, I did not like that, but then that got a bit in and now it's nice again, still cake, but with citrus and more watery.

Imaginary Reader: Ah, finally, was that so hard, my face -- and don't you dare say Guerlain again --

Guerlain!

Imaginary reader: that's not too --

Guerlain!

....

Wardrobe Staples...
I have a very full wardrobe and actually for every occasion something suitable to dress. And yet every day I stand in front of it again and have the feeling that today simply nothing suits my mood. It's to milk mice.
But wait! I still have one trump card: there is this beautifully simple, cream-coloured silk blouse that I bought years ago on a day trip to Salzburg. This blouse, in all its simplicity, is for me the salvation in distress that is always appropriate, no matter what the occasion. And she makes me feel good, maybe even beautiful. She suits me, she suits me.
The Prada iris is the olfactory equivalent of this blouse. Not exciting, but so unbelievably round and incontrovertible that it is always wearable and gives me a feeling of well-being. I feel good with this fragrance, I may even feel attractive.
All this happens in such an unagitated, relaxed and subtle way that it is probably only me who perceives it. But as long as I abstract this feeling of inner satisfaction to the outside, it fits.
Powdery-creamy, slightly floral and a very tiny bit of "spice" - simply wonderfully reserved and pleasant. Not "Wow" (breathtaking), but a positive "Hmmmmmmhmm" (comforting sighing).
I wasn't a fan of iris until a few months ago. This scent here has reconciled me to her and opened this door for me. Thanks to Infusion d'Iris for that. A permanent place in my collection has definitely earned this feel-good fragrance.

Cassopeia
Miss Cassandra has been part of the family ever since I can remember. Actually, her name is not Cassandra. Her name is Cassopeia, and she was the victim of a crime at a young age. She was kidnapped. Uhrenopa Egon simply took her with him when he went to sea more than 60 years ago in the name of the GDR -Volksmarine.
As for his name, it came about because the children of the family always thought that as a great-grandpa he would own countless watches. Egon didn't need a timepiece.
He knew, in any situation, what the hour had struck. One look at the sky, and he was in the picture.
Cassandra's age increased with the number of rings she wore.
I remember that Cassandra, in the shade of the ancient trees in the garden, spent the summer evenings. She was frugal, not needing much to be happy. Now and then a tear dripped from her eye; her thoughts were surely in her Russian homeland. She spent the winter on the back burner in cooler climes.
Grandma used to say that when you went to the refrigerator, Cassandra saw everything. Cassandra was a tortoise and hibernated in the vegetable compartment of the old VEB refrigerator.
In the spring, Grandma would dig out her vinyl lace blanket from some western package and put it on the table in the porch.
Cassandra was fed plenty of food by the grandkids, some vegetables now and then, but by and large she got hay. That was what her digestive system was set up for.
That artificial tablecloth smell got into our noses when we had to give Cassandra "first aid". While eating, a stalk got stuck in her nostril and she was visibly impaired. The dilemma : she kept pulling her head back into her tank when we tried all sorts of tricks to remove the stalk.
So we took her warm, round tank, already showing scratches of her previous trips through life at the bottom, in our hands and put her on the table. She curiously pushed out her wrinkled, leathery legs, then her bald head. The small claws on her feet scratched the vinyl.
To entice her out, we put some lettuce and a cucumber slice on the blanket, along with herbaceous, very dry, home-harvested, well-seasoned hay. Whenever the hands got too close to her field of vision, she retreated them to her little house.
Turtles emit a barely perceptible scent, especially when stressed.
This resulting scent, to me, is Prada Iris. A little herbaceous, a little leathery, but always artificial in addition. We will certainly not be friends.
Cassandra, on the other hand, could not be tricked. Grandpa knew how to deal with ladies ;-) he turned Kassandra without much ado on the back, she stuck in her panic the head out and the stalk could be removed in a flash. Haunting over.
Cassandra was estimated by a vet to be over 70 years old based on the rings on her carapace.
Cassandra is still part of the family. A watchoma turtle.

The controversy of my first semester self feat. Chypre Hills
When I was a freshman, I used to sneak into Douglas' house. I had a job at the hospital and was in a strange city with lots and lots of chicks I wasn't adequate for - I didn't have a new car and no George, Gina and Lucy bag. That's why I was in the city at that time, also to avoid these ladies. Every now and then I went to the Douglas, because I like fragrances so much and there it was - the 2007 version, smelling so cool, so grown-up and so beautifully different. Then I lost sight of him after finding some really great contacts.

Time jump my no longer quite so dewy self in an acute attack of anger consumption enters the favorite perfumery and my not quite so dearest saleswoman discourages me. I know that I get percentages and I grab the fragrance - half from anger consumption, half because I need something good now.

And there it is again: this feeling of being an adult, of being allowed to be a cool adult woman. And somehow I realize that it's time for us
The iris (iris) does not arrive here herbaceous, carotenous but very delicate, almost fragile and almost mainly pale. Very fine and ladylike it is accompanied by tangerine and the wood notes and then there is the neroli - not heavy, sensual and state-bearing but rather light and very cool. This is further underlined by the benzoin, whose proximity to Styrax can be guessed here, especially in dry down.

Infusion d'Iris is not a summer scent in the classic sense, because it goes all year round as it carries a slight warmth through the woods. It is neither sweet and fruity, but very herbaceous and yet incredibly elegant - you could describe it as chypre, if I were better in classifications.
The dry iris of the predecessor is rather attenuated, he is sweeter, more pleasing, but still has the same distinctive DNA. Prada has produced two of the best dry scents for me - Infusion d'Iris and Prada Amber - incredibly beautiful, clear scents that are not reminiscent of the soaps and sweetness of the other Pradas.
I am very happy to have found him again. The man thinks he's good, even if he's convinced that he's a Guerlain. Infussion d'Iris will definitely stay.

Iris Happiness
Pale irises scatter scents
Of your longing in the branch:
Clouds travel through the air,
Wrap yourself in soft insulation
As through fine veils of shadow
Orange blossoms bloom,
May my heart be only more loyal to you Through the night of the violet glow'n.

Hardly an evening butterfly escapes
Add the tangerines too,
Only love watches, and poems
Lullabies of thy rest
As it rests in the sky,
Is in the cedar wood the skill.
Dreams, darling, till morning -
Sleep is life amber luck

Now this is what I call a tasteful iris for the office. Sadly the theme got recycled so often that nowadays it feels a bit too standard

This is what I wear after I take a shower and get into bed with freshly washed sheets and pillow cases. The cleanest and purest scent.

Soft powder + soapiness infused with fresh orange, iris... and a buttload of woods. Why not more iris? Gets more orangey as it dries down.
