Luilei in Brooklyn now carries the Ineke line, four fragrances that debuted earlier this year from perfumer Ineke Ruhland, who was born in Canada and studied perfumery at ISIPCA in France. The fragrances are:
A ~ After My Own Heart, "the scent of fresh lilacs floating on the early evening breeze", includes notes of bergamot, raspberry, green foliage, lilac, sandalwood, heliotrope and musk.
B ~ Balmy Days & Sundays, "a perfume about perfect moments on a relaxing Sunday, lying in the grass, breathing the smells of sweet scented flowers and fragrant leaves", with notes of freesia, leafy greens, grass, honeysuckle, rose, mimosa, chypre accent and musk.
C ~ Chemical Bonding, a fragrance that "playfully juxtaposes Chemistry 101 principles with human attraction", with notes of smooth citrus cocktail, tea, blackberry, dewy peony, vetiver, amber and powdery musk.
D ~ Derring-Do for men, "an ode to the literary rogue", with fresh citrus blend, rain notes, cyclamen, magnolia, fougère accents, cardamom, pepper, guaiacwood, cedarwood and musk.
The fragrances run $78 for 75 ml of Eau de Parfum. For a limited time, get a free matchbox sample set of the Ineke scents with any Ineke purchase by entering "I know my ABC's" in the comment box on checkout; offer good through 12/18 or while supplies last.
