Frédéric Malle talks about his new (one-dollar-per-ml) Iris Hand Cream.
It's $75 for 75 ml so it won't be happening, but I'm seriously lemming the new Frédéric Malle + Olivia Giacobetti Iris Hand Cream / Creme Pour Les Mains au Beurre d'Iris. Someone do alert me if you see it marked down to around, say, $20? The blurb: "Frédéric Malle honors iris concrete’s historical use as precious perfume for the gloves and hands of the Medici family. Its colorless, silky texture was harnessed by Olivia Giacobetti with musk and woody notes to produce a clean, soft scent to accompany you wherever you go."
Part three in our eight-part series on fragrance related holiday gifts features scented items for men, although there are plenty of “unisex” ideas in the other articles, and as always there are probably a few things here that women might like. Do add any of your own recommendations in the comments!
From DS & Durga, Bowmakers in a pocket perfume oil roll-on: “Amongst the transcendental woods of the 1800s, craftsmen from the Massachusetts Bay Colony built violin bows in the tiny towns of the Pioneer Valley. The shops were filled with old growth mahogany, burled maple shavings, amber pine rosin, aged walnut and the craftsmen’s unique, secret varnishes. An androgynous, full bodied scent, Bowmaker’s ether reek is subdued by supple leather and a variety of woods.” $72 for 10 ml at Twisted Lily…
