Iris has always been considered a symbol of purity and nobility of soul. It is a flower rich in symbolism, linked to different civilizations in history: from the ancient Egyptians to the gods of Greece and to Christianity. Its name derives from a Greek word, which means rainbow, and refers to the many shades of its colours.
THE FLOWERS OF THE IRIS AND THEIR CHARACTERISTICS
Just like the rainbow, these flowers are found in many different colours in the most beautiful gardens: blue, pink, orange and all the wonderful shades of purple from the most delicate to the most intense. Attracted by these colours, irises are often surrounded by butterflies, which blend into their sinuously-shaped petals. For these reasons and for their sinuous and elegant shape, they are present in the paintings of famous painters such as Van Gogh, and in the most luxurious compositions of cut flowers. iris sono spesso circondati da farfalle, che si confondono fra i loro petali dalle forme sinuose. Per questi motivi e per la loro forma sinuosa ed elegante, sono presenti nei quadri di famosi pittori come Van Gogh, e nelle composizioni più lussuose di fiori recisi.
IRIS PERFUME: BECAUSE IT IS ONE OF THE MOST LOVED
Iris is not only a beautiful flower, but it is also one of the most noble and ethereal raw materials in the history of perfumery. The charm of its olfactory profile lies in the complex facets it takes on: powdery, woody, intimate, leathery and with bitter cocoa accents.
Iris is generally associated with vintage women's perfumes, but today it is also found in men's fragrances to give an elegant nuance to woody notes.
THE IRIS OF BETELGEUSE: PERFUME
