Perfumer Imagines The Scent Of An Odorless Flower
Aedes de Venustas in NYC took a rare iris and attempted to create a perfume inspired by its appearance.
Greenwich Village perfumer Aedes de Venustas has created a new perfume that attempts to capture the essence of a rare flower. The iris only grows in the mountains east of Nazareth and iris flowers don’t have a scent so the fragrance is inspired by the color, texture and pattern of it’s blossom.
The iris has brown or purple spots and delicate bluish-purple veins. The perfume ‘Iris Nazarena’ features ambrette, aromatic juniper berry, star anise, and rose to add a touch of floral sensuality.
