What it is: A woody eau de parfum that offers an interpretation of the royal iris flower, which symbolizes wisdom and courage.
Fragrance story: Inspired by the science of alchemy, Alessandro Michele reimagines the path of transformation from lead into gold with the art of fragrance. Iris is one of the most ancient ingredients in perfumery, and also frequently used in the makeup industry. For the scent of Tears of Iris, a noble owl is pictured in a sandalwood forest on a night with inky blue skies. Adding depth and sensuality to the scent are notes of angelica seeds and musk. The owl watches the forest with its large, luminous eyes, which shine in the dark to recall an iris.
