Known as the true perfume lovers muse, Iris has long been desired – it’s lush, expressive and costly, making it one of the finest ingredients in the world of perfume. IRISSS from Xerjoff, part of the exclusive 17/17 collection, is made using Florentine Iris butter – the perfumers equivalent to diamonds!
For complete Irisss indulgence, Harrods of London currently has one of the limited edition bottles from the 17/17 Quartz Collection. Hand-crafted from a single piece of Amethyst Quartz, this exquisite bottle is unique and available for a cool £32,000.00!
The heart of the Xerjoff IRISSS’s composition is Iris butter, with floral (rose absolute, jasmine, violet leaves and Ylang Ylang) and woody (Vetiver and Cedarwood) making up the central element. The scent is given an extra sparkle with the addition of carrot seed. Despite the nostalgic theme, the execution of IRISSS is resolutely modern and vibrant, with resinous cushions strengthening the quality of the powdery notes.
The very first collection from Xerjoff, JX17/17 is a celebration of six scents, each speaking a different language to create an alternative frame of mind. Inspired by the window cabinet of the Minerals and Semi-precious Stones area in London’s Natural History Museum, this range encompasses a Quartz Collection with handcrafted quartz flacons embossed with 18-karat gold and decorated with rubies; a limited edition Murano Collection finished in 18-karat gold and presented on an ebony base with each crystalline flacon numbered and crowned with Xerjoff’s signature stopper; and a Stone Label Collection.
Committed to nothing but the most luxurious materials to befit the most affluent lifestyles, Xerjoff deftly combines old world craftsmanship, rare raw materials, and a contemporary artistic sensibility.
IRISSS is available from Fortnum & Mason and Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie, Harrods
