In the House – Brand Spotlight on INeKe Perfumes

Ineke Perfumes


In the House is a feature on EauMG. I’m collecting my experiences from years of perfume sampling and putting together a quick brand overview. There are so many perfume lines out there that it can be overwhelming. My goal with this is to quickly introduce people to niche and indie lines that may be of interest to them.

Steamcream Multipurpose Skincare Cream Review


Steamcream Purpure


Steamcream is a multi-purpose British (and Japanese) skin cream that I’ve wanted to try for years. Now I will admit my shallowness – I’ve always wanted to try the brand because of their cute packaging. Who doesn’t love cute packaging? They have every “art” tin that you could imagine.

INeKe Floral Curiosities Scent Library Sample Set Video Review

Now all five of the perfumes are available in an amazingly adorable limited edition Scent Library. You get five samples that are in a 2.5 ml sprayer. It’s housed in a vintage looking hardback book with library cards that describe each of the fragrances. These are ridiculously cute in person so I had to make a video to show you.


Royal Apothic Holland Park EDP Perfume Review

Royal Apothic Holland Park

I have seen the Royal Apothic line around and in the past I’ve bought a few of their hand creams. I never really tried the perfumes because Anthropologie never had testers out of the ones I wanted to try. I didn’t go out of my way to try them because at their price point and with the adorable vintage inspired packaging, I thought the line was only about the looks and not what was inside. Guess what? I was wrong!

Holland Park is inspired by… Continue reading | 5 Comments
