Adam Michael has this to say “What we have here is orris co2 8% irones and as I type (06/09/20) it is a somewhat currently uncommon online CO2 offering due solely to the irones content. If you are a fan of Orris aka Iris naturals, and especially our 1% irones and 3% irones content CO2 offerings, it is very probable you may fall in love as this is a mouth-watering and highly addictive aromatic throughout.
Smelling neat, you are overwhelmed with gourmand richness, lots of bright floral warmth, dewy through to juicy qualities, an almost full spectrum of aroma to stimulate your senses, woody, spicy, fruity, floral, a tad citrus, with yummy chocolate notes, and I think you could easily interpret this as Oriental also. It is nothing short of exquisite, even exuding powdery through to plasticine qualities, hands down the best – genuine – CO2 orris production I am aware of. This 8% CO2 is so alive, joyous, deeply stimulating and oozes passion and love. Yes I am captivated and in the strongest sense, feel that within the world of orris aromatics, this 8% CO2 represents exceptional value for money.
This CO2 extract is of a solid paste consistency that requires a little bain-marie prior to use ideally and is sunset orange in colour. Regarding uses, this is a perfume in its own right and I feel with this material the possibilities are endless as it can be of value to all aromatic groups in the correct dosages. Highly recommended.”

Anag (verified owner) –
My knowledge of orris root scent is underwhelming (have planted Iris Germanica last year, though – it’s such a beauty), and was so curious to try. Undiluted this smells like something you could spice your food with – the description says it is richly gourmand – and it is: peppery, reminiscent of curcuma powder, rhizome images stimulating and romantically salty, very yummy all in all. Diluted, however, a whole new world of floral powderiness (which manages to be fresh like a breeze at the same time) mixed with warm cocoa woody character joins the gourmand notes that now linger more in the background of the perception. Very iononic, but in a more complex way (Irones, I guess), a bit darker, mysterious, forest berries invoking even. You can smell this all day (its longevity comes in handy here) and always find something new in it, it is a really lively, wholesome, satiated scent, complex and I am so happy I have it.
