Free Perfume Giveaway: Win a Bottle of the Special Edition of Iris Nobile

Iris Nobile by the Italian brand Acqua di Parma (makers of the famous Colonia and the Colonia Assoluta) is celebrating with a special edition, Iris Nobile Edizione Speciale 2013. I have long favorited this graceful floral eau de parfum with notes of white flowers, chypre accords and iris, going through my bottle with gusto, feeling like the pinnacle of elegance. So the new anniversary edition is good news for those of you who haven't tried it yet: the purple box is lovely to look at. Perfume Shrine is happy to be able to offer one Iris Nobile 2013 edition bottle to its readers, full, new and pristine (see below), for your delectation. Cool, isn't it?
Just take a look at this video clip on how the special edition bottles are created by Acqua di Parma.


Notes for Iris Nobile include ylang ylang, Florentine iris, patchouli, vanilla, oakmoss.

To enter the draw, please post a comment below saying what is your favorite iris fragrance and why you enjoy it (or if you don't like iris scents, why is that, you suppose?).
Draw is open internationally until Sunday 20th October midnight, winner will be announced sometime on Monday. Good luck!

  1. I'm rather fond of the Prada Iris, all told, though I was sent a vial of an experiment in carrot that I also liked a great deal

  2. I love iris and I love the Chanel treatment of iris in most of their fragrances. Chanel no. 19 is definitely my favorite iris. The iris in it works together very well with other notes to make the perfume both aloof and alluring.

    I can't claim to have a favourite iris fragrance because I'm not sure which fragrance presents the note best, and that is a matter of individual taste as well.

    I'm eager to learn more but there's such variation in the presentation, as I understand it, that I'm still at the bewildered stage where Iris is concerned!

    Thanks for the draw opportunity, and for sharing your knowledge of perfume too.

  4. I love the Channel 19. It is perfect for me and quite classic too!

  5. Since I have just begun my perfume education, I do not have an iris perfume yet. I did, however, get a sample of Ramon Monegal Impossible Iris, and have enjoyed wearing it. It seems a little cool somehow. Thanks for offering a chance to get to know iris with this draw for Iris Nobile. Being a bottle collector (perfume and otherwise), I love the Edizione Speciale 2013 one. If a similar post from me appears, I apologize. I tried to enter one earlier, but had difficulties. Take care.

    The iris note was my first perfume love that initiated me into niche perfumery. I love Bois d'Iris - in its two forms, by TDS and VC&A. Very different and both quite lovely.

    Chanel always seems to do a lovely iris in its compositions. No.19 being the obviously choice, but I've always like Hermes Hiris. On a side note: I dream of trying Lanvin's Irise. Perhaps the Goddesses of Fragrance will smile upon me one day!

    I really love the iris in Amouage Dia Man. Such a satisfying perfume, and so chic, I feel like a Nobel Prize winner!

  11. Count me among the lovers of Chanel No. 19! And thank you again for another wonderful drawing.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Not original, but Chanel 19 has been a part of my life since the late 70s. It's still my favorite iris. Thanks for the draw!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have a capricious relationship with Iris scents: I own and love Bois d'Iris by Van Cleff and by The Different Company; I love the former more than the latter. I sometimes can only think of wearing them and feeling surrounded by that special aura of beauty. At other times, the very same aura seems cold and calculative, unreal, perhaps? So I got myself a weird one: Iris Oriental by Parfumerie Generale and this is, to me, a strange creature which I can only wear when I myself am feeling alienated because it encapsulates me in its bubble of tensions.
    Thanks for this draw. I'd love to try Iris Nobile and have a less dramatic relationship with an Iris scent.

    I like Chanel no 19 since I was a kid, without knowing it's the iris in it until quite recently! Since then, I have been trying out other iris scents. My favourite is still Chanel no 19 and maybe Hermessence Paprika Brasil as well.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The only iris perfume I know of and own is Iris Bleu Gris (MPeG) and I love it. It smells subtle and I cannot discern any notes particularly, just a well blended goodness. Sorry I don't know how to write about perfume.
    Thanks for this give away.

    I am new to the world of fragrance. Therefore, I smelt only few iris fragrances. I like Chanel 19, Chanel 28 La Plasa, Prada Infusion d'Iris. They feel composed and well centered as a lady. I tried and liked Iris Nobile. It smells more like Iris flower. On a walk with my dog, I keep smelling iris flowers in the neighborhood. Pretty funny! I just should plant some!

    My iris journey began with Chanel 18 and after trying 19 and some Prada, I found true love with Iris Silver Mist (Serge Lutens): not too powdery, perfect projection, good longevity, just the right amount of quirkiness but still sophosticated. Iris Nobile is actually on my shopping list. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway!

  25. Stephan20:54

    Mentioning Iris, the first scent that comes to my mind is Après l'Ondée, but of course this is much more than only an iris fragrance. It's heart-warming, a bit melacholic and very beautiful. Thanks for the draw.

  28. iadore iris scents---never met one that i didn't at least like, and some i love. i wear prada infusion d'iris to teach yoga, as it has a subtle sillage and a meditative quality to it that is eminently suitable for that. lutens' iris silver mist is lovely. and chanel no. 19, of course, thought that has a great deal more going on than iris. i think what appeals to me about iris scents is that peculiar, unmistakeable rooty smell---buttery, earthy; and the floral part has a scent that is lightly sweet and somehow reminds me of a certain candy from early childhood. i've always wanted to try the nobile! somebody nailed the bottle and packaging on that, by the way; really elegant and neither dated nor too self-consciously modern. please enter me in the drawing!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like so many iris scents! But I suppose my most favourite is Chanel 31 Rue Cambon, because is different from the others I have - it's not gourmand, it's very refined and elegant. It's me :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Unbelievable! Iris is my fave note. I'm dying over Jo Malone Iris and White Musk, but did not get it yet. I also have been using Prada Iris for ages, my 750 ml bottle has just come to an end. Thanks for the terrific prize!

    I haven't pursued iris as a note, although I do love the cool elegance of Chanel no 19. I have only 2 scents currently in which iris is significant: Apres l'Ondee and the Eau de Toilette of YSL Nu.

    I would love to start my iris exploration with Iris Nobile!

    Thanks for the draw opportunity, and thanks for the link to the video. I love to see artisans at work.

  35. David Magri00:47

    Please include me in the draw too! I would love to win it for my mom who loves iris fragrances :-)

    My favourite 'iris fragrance' for the time being would have to be Arpege Pour Homme by Lanvin. I like it so much because, to me, the iris is well blended such that the fragrance is still masculine. In my opinion, a strong iris note can be hard to masculinize. Also, I like Arpege Pour Homme so much because the opening reminds me very much of when I was a little kid, and the smell of pouring out the last of the "Fruit Loops" box. The opening of Arpege reminds me of the sugary Fruit Loops dust.

    Iris & White Musk by Jo Malone. I first became a fan of Jo Malone years ago when I was looking for a perfume that also had beautiful packaging as I was purchasing a gift for a friend. Then I discovered Lemon Verbena and wore it every day until Jo Malone discontinued it.

    Lately I wear Acqua Di Parma Magnolia Nobile and I would love to expand my fragrance wardrobe with their Iris.

    Thank you for a wonderful blog. I look forward to your posts.

  48. I have three favourite iris scents. Iris poudre of F. Malle because I like the velvet and powdery interpretation of this note, Iris Nazarena from Aedes de Venustas because it is very dry, but subtle with a masculine side ....but my favourite one, is Silver Iris Mist, it is metallic and soft, cold and very comfortable to wear it!

  51. I truthfully cannot say that iris is a note that I deliberately look for specifically, but, three of my favorite perfumes do contain it...Shalimar, Chanel No. 5 and Lolita Lempicka. I've not come across any perfumes yet that are iris-specific, and certainly would be delighted to enjoy this offering!

  61. I am a mad possessed iris lover. At the moment my favourites are 28 LP and Casbah. Of course, a part of my heart is forever ISM; another is forever Hiris. Sometimes Prada Iris Absolue is fun; I quite like Iris Pallida but it is perhaps not as amazing as it is expensive Of course, Al'Oondee isn't a soliflore, but is a lovely interpretation of iris. But I do like Iris Nobile, and don't own it! gasp! a v exciting draw.

    Chanel No 19 Poudre is a keeper even though I have yet to purchase a full bottle of it. I have been living off the samples a friend was kind enough to gift me. The scent is very lady like to my nose and blends so nicely with my body chemistry. I am afraid that I don't have much experience with the Iris note other than the purple ones that bloom in my flowerbed every May. I really look forward to that every Spring.

  72. What a generous offer! And the video was astonishing - in this day and age when everything comes off an assembly it's amazing to see true a craftsman at work, know that each bottle is a unique work of art!

    In iris, I've always been partial to Chanel No. 19 (such a classic!), But Dahlia Noir has always settled into a nice iris for me, but in a very different way.

    Again. thanks for this generosity. What a kind good heart!

    Hermes Hiris was my only scent for about 3-4 years, after it arrived in the US - I believe the year was 1999. It was available for sniffing at the Hermes boutique in NYC. I sniffed it and thought it was the weirdest perfume I'd ever smelled. Weeks later, on the subway, I smelled it "in my head"; i.e., it wasn't literal, I was just remembering the smell. I took it as a sign, returned to the store and purchased a bottle and wore it non-stop. It's not "sad", or "boring" for me - it's clean and unpretentious and authentic. It was ahead of its time. The recent Hermes Iris U. is quite green and friedly, and it's fun to wear on casual occasions. Hiris, on the other hand, is not as social and needy. It seems Hiris and I have quite a bit in common.... thanks for the opportunity to comment! Seattlelight

    Iris Silver Mist, without a doubt. I am also keen to try the legendary lost Molyneux No. 5, which I'm given to understand is an iris oriental.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love Iris and mourn the loss of Guerlain's Iris Ganache. I hope that this would be a suitable replacement in my heart. I grow Iris every spring and look forward to them even more than the tulips. They are so finicky and unpredictable in their bloom, you never know if they are going to come through for you or not, but when they do, they are glorious!

    ReplyDelete
  100. The iris dream - 28 La Pausa - an olfactory translucent impressionistic rendering of a Tuscany landscape with fields of pale blue irises. And somewhere there a young couple under the cypress trees on their wedding day enveloped in light laughter and even lighter veil swaying in the breeze among the rolling hills.
    Do take two steps back and everything becomes just a transparent smudge of artist's brush strokes.

  118. I like Dior Homme. The iris, amber, and cocoa are so balanced, so smooth. I feel all is effortless when I wear this.

  119. The only iris fragrance I own is Infusion d'Homme. I love fragrances that play up the cool, dry aspect of the root. However, oddly enough, I like the sweet, violet-y feel of Dior Homme as well. There's something very posh feeling about it!

  120. Thanks for the draw! Iris is one my favourite notes, so I was very excited to just sit down and think of the fragrance that makes the best of its powdery rooty-ness. I guess it's Chanel 28 La Pausa for me - partly because it was the first iris scent that I truly loved, and partly because it is just heartbreakingly beautiful.

  121. What a delectable video.
    I love Iris Nobile - gave my bottle away as a gift to a friend, though.
    I love iris in general.
    One iris that is often overlooked but quite elegant is Iris Bleu Gris by MPG.
    Please do include me in the draw. Maybe this time I am lucky.

    Like mother like daughter? My mother's signature scent has always been Shalimar and I've thought it to be the iris note which instinctively attracted me to other perfumes, Chanel 19 being a personal favorite. Thanks for the great giveaway! Love your blog.

  125. I don't believe that I have a favorite Iris fragrance. The closest would be Parfum d'Empire's Cuir Ottoman. Maybe Iris Nobile might take the top spot. Thanks for the lovely draw.

  136. I didn't know I was an iris fan, until I noticed in the comments that Chanel no.19 and Casbah are considered iris scents. I have a bottle of the former and am fiending for a bottle of the latter - and have been devouring pages on this website since I found it recently. Thanks for taking fragrance to the next level. xoMCS.
