Huitieme Art Naiviris EDP Perfume Review

Huitieme Art Naiviris EDP

Huitième Art Naïviris is a simple fragrance with two accords listed that I’ve never sniffed before. I can’t find any info on “African red iris” and I’m only familiar with zebra wood in the context of fancy mod furniture. I have no clue what either of these things smell like in “real life” but here’s what Naïviris smells like:

Naiviris opens as with a lipstick waxiness and powdery iris that reminds me of the “makeup” in Dior Homme. It’s rooty and vegetal. Reminds me a bit of steamed carrots and leather.  It’s cold but warmed by wood. The scent is clean, powdery. The Huitieme Art scents tend to wear circular on me. After a few hours of orris-wood warmth it will go back to a cold tube of lipstick and face powder.

Notes listed include African red iris and zebra wood essence. PERFUMER – Pierre Guillaume

Give Naïviris a try if you like iris fragrances or clean, powdery fragrances. Or if you like perfumes like Dior Homme, Chloé Love Chloé, Jo Malone London Iris & White Musk, Prada Infusion d’Iris EDT, Heeley Iris de Nuit, and/or Histoires de Parfums Blanc Violette. Naiviris is a soft scent and I think of it as unisex.

The fragrance wears closely to the skin with below average projection. However, longevity is above average.

The 1.7 oz EDP retails for $125 at The Perfume Shoppe.

Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Cold tube of lipstick – wax and powdery iris. It’s not a dirty, earthy iris. It’s very clean and cosmetic but with a modern feel. And very simple. Pleasant smelling but not convincing me to drop the bucks for it.

    1. Imagine a cosmetic fragrance without the rose.
      I don’t think it’s silly. I’ve avoided many perfumes because of the packaging and/or names. And this line happened and it felt overwhelming at the time. I didn’t know where to start with it.
