History of a flower with rhizomes: the iris
3000 years before Jesus Christ, the first trace of the Iris is in Egypt. In Greek mythology, Iris is the messenger of the gods and appears in the form of a rainbow, in reference to the multiplicity of colors of the plants whose name she bears.
The iris is one of the most prestigious products used in perfumery. The fleur-de-lis is an exceptional material, the emblem of the kings of France, of which Charlemagne made it a scepter, made popular by Clovis. The Christian religion has made the rainbow of mythology a legacy, this is how the iris is reincarnated. Another royal heritage of the iris, it is nicknamed blue gold.
This rhizome plant has several varieties, shades of scent and colors, it is found in black, midnight blue, violet... It is the rhizomes, or roots that are used for perfumery. We find the Germanica iris in Italy and the Pallida iris in Morocco and Italy. The chemical process of smelling the iris is called irone. Irone is found in the roots of the iris Pallida and Germanica, and other iridaceae. It is a scent of choice in perfumery.
