Elise Benat was born and raised in the Mediterranean, South of France. She still remembers with admiration the aromas of maquis, myrtle and salt. As a teenager, Elise Benat traveled to exotic corners of the planet and this was to later impact on her future work and lead to the creation of the most delicate and surprising aromas.
When she attended her first smell training course, while studying chemistry, it was a real eye-opener for her. From that moment, the determined young lady firmly decided on her future. Her dream came true when she joined the Firmenich team. Elise Benat likes reading. She also finds inspiration in art. She enjoys the emotions she get when she succeeds in translating words into aromas.
The only people that consider romance and femininity to be old-fashioned are those who have never managed to wear a perfume that really glorifies women and their gentleness. The French perfumer Philippine Courtiere spent a long time creating this aroma. The creativity of this talented, wise and highly professional lady gave birth to the niche women’s perfume “IRISATION”. The bouquet came off harmoniously complete, rounded out and cosy. It offers inspiration and makes one dream of love.
“IRISATION” belongs to the floral fruity family with a relatively tender composition. It is the ideal choice for women of all ages. This delicate perfume makes you think of wind blowing from sunny summer gardens and of freshly picked flowers and berries. There is a certain naivety to it, for it awakens the desire to make the world around beautiful.
A refreshing green bergamot note, playful strawberries, and sweet and slightly balsamic blackcurrant form the top accord of the bouquet. The classical combination of jasmine flowers, the innocent and airy scent of rose petals and a gourmet praline note make up the heart of the perfume. The soft creamy and nutty nuances of the last note unite all the other ingredients of the composition. The trail combines the pleasing smell of patchouli, the sensuality of which is harmonised by vanilla. There is also a distinct musk note in the trail.
