Orris Root CO2 (3% Irones)

Adam Michael has this to say “In keeping with the essential oil/butter and our absolute offering this Orris Root CO2 is glorious green violet potent from top note through to dry down. The floral powdery warmth is nothing short of exquisite and the fruity undertones sing a song of real joy and happiness. The feel good factor from just sitting with this material and inhaling from the bottle is mind blowing.

Unlike the 1% irones CO2 offering, this Orris Root CO2 contains 3% irones and whilst the 1% offering is of a partially water wax like consistency this material has a consistency comparable to that of lip balm, wax like with a soft velvety texture. With gentle warmth this material becomes pourable very quickly. This CO2 is a select extract, produced from the roots of Iris germanica, golden treacle yellow in colour. The irones content breakdown is as follows – 0.14% trans-alpha Iron, 1% cis-alpha Iron, 0.002% beta Iron and 1.8% gamma Iron. An essential material for building exquisite violet bases and rose accords.”

    More refined and elegant than the 1% irones absolute offering in my opinion, very similar but the cacao notes are darker and less milky sweet not to mention the almost haunting cool violet floral aspect this one has.

    Even when orris isn’t obvious within a fragrance it can add such depth and beauty, mystery even. I always say that I’ll make a single note personal fragrance with orris materials (but never do!) as it has such a special aroma. I must get around to it.

    Orris is by far my favourite aromatic material. I have been sneaking it into almost all of my perfume blends and so far haven’t regret it one single time.
    With that being said, this particular CO2 offering is no exception. Very beautiful material indeed, I could just sniff it for hours. Using it is quite easy, however putting the impressions into words is not. There is just something about it that reminds me of first warmer spring days, mid April or so, when nature is awakening and the air smells just intoxicating. I love it. I have already used this up but left the bottle to enjoy the remaining scent. Will be buying some more.
