Iris Absolute. The regal Prima Ballerina. Delicacy in her every movement. The precision is resolute. On stage the lights go up with bergamot. A flood of radiant transparency. A whirl of pink, the energy of peppercorn and amber pirouettes make the whole rounded, arrondi. From the wings, the Iris makes an entrance, reaching high to bow down low, lofty softness and powdery grace, but Orris root must come back to earth. A pas de deux with Himalayan Jasmine. Majestic femininity, the strength of flight. Leather hints at the back stage preparations: the flesh of ballet shoes that fall and rise point-to-point on sandalwood.
Vanilla and benzoin remind us that we are also skin to skin.
Penhaligons Portraits the Bewitching Yasmine Eau de Parfum 75ML
She is by all appearances soft and quiet. Yet at the same time, she conducts herself with a rare force. Some, the less determined, would find her distant, maybe cold, but appearances are notoriously misleading.
Like all intriguing (and bewitching) women, the perfume of Yasmine is hot and cold. The unique sharpness of rich, strong coffee is set off against a creamy spice accord.
