Hello, I’m only reviewing Etro Jacquard because I love the sunny, cheerful bottle.
The opening of a Jacquard is a bitter angelica. So, yeah, it smells a little bit like celery leaves and cedar pencil shavings. There’s a dry, spicy black pepper and bright citrus. As far as citrus go, this is a greener, drier citrus instead of a juicy, pulpy citrus. Then we get to the rest of the fragrance. It’s a sheer, powdery iris with a green violet. This isn’t a cosmetic powdery fragrance. It has dry woods that keep it from going makeup. The rest of it like a musky iris with a dry (and arguably) generic vetiver.
Overall, it’s a pretty basic iris. It’s pretty and I’m not going to lie, I wear perfumes like this a lot (Prada Infusion d’Iris, everything Chanel Les Exclusifs, especially No. 18). However, I don’t need another fragrance like this even if it comes in a sunny, cheerful bottle.
Notes listed include bergamot, angelica, black pepper, elemi, iris, jasmine, ylang-ylang, vetiver, sandalwood, violet and musk. Launched in 2014.
Give Jacquard a try if you like sheer, powdery iris fragrances. Or Yves Saint Laurent Trench, Prada Infusion d’Iris, Xerjoff Ibitira, Lili Bermuda Oleander, Chanel Les Exclusifs 1932 and/or Jo Malone London Iris & Lady Moore.
Projection and longevity are average. The fragrance itself is rather sheer, reminding me of stuff like Chanel Les Exclusifs.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Peppery iris. Totally adequate fragrance, especially for “day” wear, but I already own plenty of adequate fragrances that I like better. Sadly, none of those are in colorful yellow bottles. Oh, well.
