Bois d'Iris is a fantastic woody iris scent, very stylish - minimalistic and elegant.
Master-perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena celebrates with Bois d’Iris the exquisite noble scent of Iris Pallida. The vetiver and cedar wood give it a soft and smooth woody base. We simply cannot be neutral nor objective about this beauty
Victoria van Bois de Jasmin over Bois d'Iris: " The most compelling quality of Bois d’Iris, a fragrance created by the perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena for The Different Company is its ability to present the silvery and earthy iris root as layers of petals, transparent as if shot through with intense light and soft as if made from Varanasi silk. In contrast to the earthy and rooty irises, Bois d’Iris is marked by such as a lovely floral softness sustained over the dry woody base that I can forgive its lack of tenacity and make a room for it in my crowded collection of iris fragrances (and perfumes by Jean-Claude Ellena, for that matter.)"
The Different Company
An unclassifiable brand, essences immortelles
An English name for a French company, it is clear that The Different Company strives for unconventionality. This is haute perfumery, not compromising and using high-quality materials yet remaining very comfortable and fresh.
The Different Company was founded in 2000 by designer Thierry De Baschmakoff and perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena.
In 2004 Celine Ellena followed in the footsteps of her father, as the perfumer-creator of The Different Company. He left in 2004 to become the in-house perfumer at Hermès. Big footsteps to fill, one could argue, but Céline was fit for the challenge and left her signature on the brand. Her second creation, Sel de Vetiver, immediately received a 5 star rating (highest possible) by Chandler Burr, scent critic of The New York Times Magazine.
More recently, several guest perfumers were invited to use their creativity. Like Christine Nagel for Une Nuit Magnetique and Alexandra Monet for Le15, a limited edition released on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the brand.
