“I collect prints and have a mental picture of irises in the ‘floating world’ (the ukiyo-éin Japanese) in the works of Hokusai or Hiroshige. They inspired me when I was composing this divertimento based on floral iris. I felt like foiling the classic approach to the iris by working on the flower’s fragrances, which are virtually unknown. Its perfume is delicate but very much there, shifting between different notes: rose, orange blossom and mandarin, all expressed by small, impressionistic touches.”
Lighter than I expected: citrus, rose and something mossy. Very tingly and fresh.
