Iris oil is one of the “strongest” and doesn’t loose the quality within years. The best way to “keep” it in alcohol. But the most important that iris root scent is the “heart not” in many perfumes. The aroma is mystical, languorous, elegant, soft and cold a little bit… It’s a shady pair to rose and jasmine music… Good for meditations iris opens up you soul and a third eye. The flower symbolism associated with the iris is faith, cherished friendship, hope, promise in love and wisdom.
