Green Spell by ERIS Parfums

Hey Posse. You probably know, or know of, my mate Barbara Herman. She wrote the blog Yesterday’s Perfume and her book Scent and Subversion: Decoding a Century of Provocative Perfume. In 2016 she decided to do what so many of us dream of doing. She founded ERIS Parfums and is the creative director. ERIS Parfums now has five Antoine Lie created fragrances. Belle de Jour was a finalist for Best Independent Perfume at the 2017 International Art & Olfaction Awards in Berlin. All five fragrances are based on Barbara’s love of 20th century perfume and all hark back to that magical golden era. Green Spell is to be their first dabble in a retro inspired green scent and I can’t wait to try it.

Green Spell by ERIS Parfums 2021

Italian Mandarin, French Black Currant absolute (Bourgeons Cassis), Iranian Galbanum (oil and resinoid), Egyptian Violet Leaf absolute, French Narcissus absolute, Tomato leaf accord, Fig leaf accord, Haitian Vetiver, Ambroxan, Musk

To finish creating and producing Green Spell Barbara is doing an Indigogo crowdfund. She also did this for her book and the original three ERIS Parfums. It’s a really great deal. You can get an early sample (1.5ml [$25] or 10ml travel spray [$50] ) plus discount codes for full bottles. I personally bought the 10 ml Green Spell travel spray, an ERIS Discovery Set (5 x 1.5ml) and a $40 Discount Code for US$75 plus shipping. I love the idea of being the first to try Green Spell and it will be fun to reintroduce myself to the rest of the line. There were a couple of early lemmings in there that I would like to revisit so I can make them into FBs in my collection.

Here’s a mini movie made to get you excited about Green Spell

The sample and travel sprays will be shipped at the end of July / early August. The campaign ends July 31. Ships worldwide.

    OOOOooooh! This sounds PERFECT. I love green scents — Silences, No 19, Bandit, Dryad, Niki de Saint Phalle — and I love the idea of getting an early sample and the discovery set like you did. Great post!

    • Portia says:

      Thanks HeidiC,
      There are a few of us who are MAJOR green fans. I knew you’d be excited, especially as Barbara has proven herself able to make beautiful, clever and modern fragrances already. So excited to see what she’s done with green.

    I am debating a purchase of Yoyogi by CdG. It’s a bit strong and out of my regular lane, but I’m feeling the freshly cut grass and weeds vibe. I just don’t think I need even 50 ml of it and difficult to find decants.

  • Kathleen says:

    Thank you for sharing the details of Green Spell and the campaign. I have sampled some of the Eris perfumes and love Ma Bete and Belle de Jour. I love the book Scent and Subversion, I pick it up often to browse through the description of so many stellar perfumes from the past. My favorite green perfume is Niki de Saint Phalle, followed by Cristalle Eau Vert and Silences by Jacomo.

  • Musette says:

    those are stunning notes, Portia! My fave green from the 20th is Vent Vert (I say 20th (in case it was earlier, though I think not) because I’m from the 20th). Gucci Envy! another fabbo Green.


    • Portia Turbo says:

      GUCCI ENVY! What a fabulous pair of fragrances they were. I still have an unopened 100ml bottle here of Envy Men that has way too many memories attached.

    This sounds fantastic, and I love the name! I also love the green nails in the photo (of course) lol. Next polish change I’m going green!

    • Musette says:

      for a hot minute I thought those were your nails! That color would look stunning on your Snow White self, with a crisp white shirt and black pants, a la Cruella deVil.

    • Portia Turbo says:

      OMG March,
      I thought they were fabulous too. Dark Green! It looks so elegant, yet totally cool.

    Green scents are my very favorite, and the list of notes in this ERIS Green Spell are like a list of top ten hits on the pop charts. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this info Portia!!

  • Tara C says:

    I am really not a green scent person, but I like Corsica Furiosa in summer, not sure if that counts.

  • Greennote says:

    Chanel No. 19 – that was 20th century wasn’t it? And 21st century is Simone Andreoli Business Man.
    I’m excited to try Green Spell, I have a sample of Mx that I really like.
