An extraordinarily feminine, unique and elegant fragrance. The iris flower is a symbol of the Italian patrimony, the emblematic flower of Florence and of the Medici family. Additionally, the iris is characteristic of high-end perfumery. Used for the refinement of its perfume, it is a flower that is both difficult to distillate and extremely expensive: The production of 3.4 oz. of essence requires 3,527 ounces of fresh petals. Iris is also the emblem of an Italian universe, luxurious and exclusive, as is the world of Acqua di Parma. The scent combines the transparent surprise of star anise, mandarin from Sicily, bergamot from Calabria and cedar flower. It finishes with an infusion of vanilla from Madagascar and ambrette crystals.
