I bought this one because I LOVE Iris Poudre and read reviews of how similar they are. I do not regret this purchase one bit. They are definitely sisters but with slightly different personalities.
Comparing the two, IP is much more formal, perhaps colder, drier and definitely more powdery where Ferré is lighter, more casual, and softer. I’d use Ferré in the day and IP in the evening. Ferré in the Summer and IP in the Winter. Not that I follow this literally, but more to show comparison.
But Ferré, with disregard to price, is obviously of lesser quality than IP. It doesn’t have the sillage or the longetivity that IP has but is still a great frag that I will buy again. It’s a lovely scent in its own right.
