Decadent fragrance experts Acqua di Parma, are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Iris Nobile with the launch of a special edition Iris Nobile Eau de Parfum and Cube Candle featuring the delicate iris flower, silk-screened in 18-carat gold.

The art of Silk screening has seen something of a trend amongst notable olfactors including the fabulous launch by Jo Malone and Calm & Collected using it in their design collaboration last month.  Acqua di Parma’s floral scent comprises top notes of bergamot, mandarin and star anise, with heart notes combining iris concentrate and ylang-ylang, while patchouli, oak musk, vanilla and ambrette crystals at the base.

The perfumed candle contains purple pigments, concentrated iris fragrance, and refined natural wax, which has been shaped into a smooth and shiny cube, embossed with the Iris Florentina motif.
