Everything's coming up 'Iris'...

If someone asked me my top ten smells, Iris would not be one of them. Until I smelled the offerings from Prada and Acqua di Parma, that is. Like the bottles themselves, the scents are straightfoward, yet mysterious, with tons of class and glamour. It's not a sweet floral, but a musky, woody floral. It's a sensual smell that I imagine women in the 1920's wearing for a night out. It doesn't assault the senses, but slowly creeps up on you until your wondering "is it me that smells this good?"
As a side note, the Acqua di Parma image is a special packaging for the holidays--I love the cute purple box.
