Hail the holy Iris, whose rich roots offer a base note of abundant fragrant fruits. Orris Root supercritical extract is obtained from the rhizomes (roots) of the Iris plant after being stored underground and aged for a minimum of three years. While the buds exude the signature, sweet smell of ancient Iris, it is the roots of the plant that are richest in aromatic delights. These aged rhizomes surpass the flowers in terms of their irones content, which gives the extract its ethereal, otherworldly aroma.

The Iris flower dates back to antiquity, when it was named after the goddess Isis. Isis was a messenger of the gods who was often associated with the rainbow. Like its patron saint and goddess, the iris flower is also rainbow-like thanks to a multitude of colorful flowers that spring from its roots each year. Yellow, pinks, whites, and violet-blue hues emerge from the earth as Iris expresses herself in petticoats of pure florals. In France, Iris petals are representative of valor, wisdom, and faith.

It takes over 30 kilograms of raw Orris Roots to create a single kilo of Orris Root supercritical extract. The oil is a base note extraordinaire as it has a dreamy, creamy caramel fruit-like aroma that makes it perfectly suited to perfumery, cuisine, natural cosmetics, and enhancing the flavor of drinks and liqueurs.
