“Confidential” by Carolina Herrera, the jewel inspired fragrance collection welcomes Iris Empire to its repertoire. The fragrance pays tribute to the magnificence of black, becoming one more addition to the thirteen eaux de parfum, six eaux de toilette and seven pure oils. Using the legendary black diamond and ancient empires as a source of inspiration, Iris Empire emerges as a tribute to oriental luxury, which has influenced its creator Carolina A. Herrera over the course of her career as Beauty Creative Director of the brand.
Created by perfumer Nelly Hachem-Ruiz (IFF) in collaboration with Beauty Creative Director Carolina A. Herrera, the unisex proposes a superb balance of ingredients that happen to be as invigorating as surprising.
Top notes feature fragrant davana, an aromatic herb native to the south of India, which is elegantly fused with cinnamon, whilst the heart notes convey a mysticism with the subtlety of violet and orris. Base notes of the hypnotic fragrance close with the always-winning combination of leather and patchouli.
“I wanted to associate orris to a cocoa veil to create a new addictive signature. The result is a surprising, modern yet luxurious perfume with sensual, mouthwatering and powdery accents. Elegant balms, patchouli and leathery notes print the fragrance with a remarkable sillage”, says perfumer Nelly Hachem-Ruiz.
With this new addition, new possibilities open for the layering ritual that characterizes the exclusive “Confidential” saga so loved in the region. Iris Empire extends a playful invitation to mix it with the rest of eaux de parfum, eaux de toilette and pure oils that are part of this intimate ceremony full of endless combinations, most favorably layering with Carolina Herrera’s Oud Couture or Vetiver Paradise.
