Iris Prima by Penhaligon's Perfume. Penhaligon's Iris Prima hypostatizes the spirit of a prima ballerina in her dance, all the grace and flair she
emanates. The smell will sway you like the ballerina’s movements. The fragrance is acceptable for both men and women as much like a ballerina, it is light on its feet. Starting out is a spicy layer of bergamot and pink pepper. Then it segues into something sweet and powdery with a heart of iris and jasmine. As it comes to an end, the last to reveal
themselves are phenolic notes of leather, creamy sandalwood, vanilla, resinous amber, earthy vetiver, and benzoin.
Iris Prima made its debut in 2013. Alberto Morillas, an iconic master perfumer from Spain, was the nose of this scent. Penhaligon’s perfumery is one of the oldest in Britain, their first fragrance launched in 1872 by William Penhaligon. They are considered a niche designer as they sell products for an upscale market.
