Discover a flawless new Jewel in the ‘House of Houbigant’ Crown, Houbigant Iris des Champs, a regal oriental-floral fragrance for her.
As the Iris, (or Lily) is the symbol of Royalty in France, it is beautifully fitting that the House of Houbigant, with strong historical aristocratic origins, pay homage to the Iris with this captivating and sensual woman’s scent. Inspired by Paul Parquet, the House of Houbigant undertook the formulating of this luxurious and enticing women’s fragrance with a very unique approach.
Paul Parquet said of his scent based on his idea of how Fern leaves ought to smell, “if God gave ferns a smell, they would smell like Fougère Royale”. This perfume development of Iris des Champs is the result of a collaboration between the House of Houbigant and Mathieu Nardin, perfumer at Robertet.
The extraction process for the Iris is long and delicate. As the bounty of the Iris derives from the Rhizomes, or root, of the plant which is rich, unique and fragrant, where the flower itself is largely odourless; they set out to create something truly special – their vision of how the Iris Lily should smell. What Paul Parquet did for the Fern with Fougère Royale, Maison Houbigant has done for the precious Iris with the exquisite Iris des Champs.
