FRÄULEIN CRUSH: GUCCI – THE ALCHEMIST’S GARDEN „TEARS OF IRIS“
Alchemy. The transformation from the raw to the refined.
An olfactory journey leading to ancient and mystical lands. Inspired by the science of alchemy, Alessandro Michele extracts the noble Iris and bottles it with sandalwood, musk and angelica seeds for the perfect blend of sensuality and delicacy.
With Gucci’s “Tears of Iris”, the art of fragrance is brought to another level of depth.
Part of Michele’s ‚The Alchemist’s Garden‘ collection, “Tears of Iris” Eau de Parfum is inspired by nature and the magic of alchemy. Composed by master perfumer Alberto Morillas, the scent was launched in 2019 and invites the wearer to step into an abundant forest ornamented with exotic flowers, plants, animals. Indeed, within the collection each of the fragrances’ base is composed of Neroli flower mixed with Limone Cedrato fruit.
Historically, Iris is one of the most ancient ingredients utilised in cosmetics and fragrance creation, symbolising wisdom and courage. The bottle takes us back to an antique pharmacy filled with apothecary glass jars, ointments, containers. Adorned with golden Gucci filigree letterings, opulence meets nature in this homage to the never ending interaction between humans and earth.
Tracing back to Gucci’s origins, the company’s first fragrance, Gucci No. 1 for women was introduced in 1974. A series of fragrances for men and women have since been launched, with many taking legendary status amongst perfume collectors, including Gucci 3 and L’Arte di Gucci.
Suitable for all seasons and genders, “Tears of Iris” will take you on a jurney between duey floral landscapes and lavish princess’ castles.
