Irises were valued by the early Indian and Egyptian people for their medicinal uses and for the manufacturing of perfumes. The perfumes, in particular, were used as offerings to the gods. During the times of the Renaissance, the iris rhizomes were crushed, then sieved and mixed with rice powder, which then gave off a sweet violet scent. Rice powder was used to perfume wigs, the face and also clothes.
The scent is delicate, complex and accentuates over time to become very persistent. In perfumery, iris is both floral and woody, with buttery accents and evocative notes of violet. Some even find it has a dry and strawy aspect. You can find iris in colognes and perfumes such as, Chanel 19, Hermès Women's Hiris Hermès and Dior Homme By Christian Dior For Men.
