Iris Solid Perfume Blending Guide

Here are a few recipes to help you get started.

Hints: You can blend the solid perfumes in any order. Try varying the amount of each solid perfume too e.g. a lot more lemon and a little less amber. Sniff and adjust the blend accordingly. You are in control so experiment and find what feels right to your nose.

Tip: Try blending on paper with cotton buds. Just layer one solid perfume over the other as you would on your skin. This way if you make a scent you don't like, you won't need to wash it off.

We hope you have fun and enjoy these recipes. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

MASQUERADE

Iris

Neroli

Imperial Rose

 

INSPIRATION
'The crowded Venice masquerade has just begun. The guests wear masks and costumes in every colour, adorned with feathers, intricate lace and sumptuous fabrics. The waterways are filled with gondolas and lit by romantic candlelight. There is energy in the air, but who are the people behind the masks?'

 

Iris and imperial rose blend together to create a noble and aristocratic ambience. Iris (orris root) has been grown in Italy for centuries and symbolises royalty. Intoxicating imperial rose creates opulence, extravagance and intrigue. Citrus neroli complements by adding radiance and lift in the top notes.

AROUND TOWN

Iris

Bergamot

Imperial Rose

 

INSPIRATION
'A snowy winter's day just before Christmas. The town is bustling as people rush to get presents for under their tree. You're wrapped up in a thick woollen coat with a scarf twirled around your neck. It's icy cold outside but the lights of the shop windows make the atmosphere warm and full of spirit.'

 

A heady floral fragrance perfect for winter. Full bodied imperial rose creates warmth, festiveness and colour in the bleak snowy landscape. Powdery iris adds a metallic note that feels icy and cold. Fresh bergamot and iris mimic the frosty air as you go around town.

NEON PINK SIGN

Pink Pepper

Iris

Tonka Bean

 

INSPIRATION
'A neon pink sign blinks in a hairdresser's shop window.'

 

Pink pepper and iris blend to create a garish pink hue. The two notes together causes the pink pepper note to become extra sweet, conjuring images of ladies with voluminous hair dyed in different cotton candy colours. The scent's linear characteristic echos the scent of hairspray at the hairdressers. Tonka bean in the base adds more candy sweetness.
