INeKe Perfumes and Anthropologie will be launching a collaborative, limited edition perfume line in August: Floral Curiosities. The line will contain four fragrances created by niche perfumer, Ineke Rühland. Each fragrance is inspired by Ineke’s gardens in California:
Angel’s Trumpet – Described as “rich and opulent” with notes of honeydew melon, Seville orange, leafy greens, cinnamon leaf, allspice, Virgina cedar, and white musk. – I love the intoxicating smell of night-blooming Angel’s Trumpet. For the first time ever, I admit that I’d be happy with a soliflore. I’m a little disappointed to not see Angel’s Trumpet as a note listed. However, I am still excited to sniff this one. From the notes listed, it seems like a “lighter” Evening Edged in Gold.
Briar Rose – Described as “fruity and powdery” with notes of black raspberry, bitter almond, exotic spices, black violet, patchouli, and cacao absolute. – These notes sound beautiful together. Black violet, almond, and patchouli? Yes, please. I can’t wait to try this one. And I like the name.
Poet’s Jasmine – Described as “citrus and herbal” with notes of Poet’s Jasmine tea, citrus, star anise, rosemary, absinthe, frankincense, cardamom, hinoki wood, and guaiac wood. – Sounds very unisex and refreshing to me.
Scarlet Larkspur – Described as “floral oriental” with notes of claret wine, nutmeg, saffron, amyris wood, tonka bean, bourbon vanilla, blood orange, red currant, and morello cherry. – Sounds like a gourmet mulled wine. I’m a saffron fan, so I can’t wait to try this.
Ineke is a talented perfumer. The price point is very good. The water-colored bottles look beautiful. You better believe that I’ll be in Anthropologie in August to try these. What do you think? Any of these stand out to you?
Each 2.5 EDP spray will retail for $68 and will only be available only at Anthropologie.
