Fragrances from an artisanal perfumer will provide you with a unique scent not commonly found in broad market perfumes.
Application: When wearing Ineke, spray perfume on your pulse points, including the insides of your wrists and elbows, behind the knees and in the nape of your neck. Let it dry naturally, and your body heat will react with the perfume to give an enchanting scent.
Ineke Rühland is a classically-trained perfumer creating original fragrances in her independent studio in San Francisco. Born and educated in Canada, she moved to Europe in 1988 for a career in the fragrance industry. After working in the Netherlands, England and France, she found herself passionately drawn to the creative role of the professional “nose”. So in 1996, she began her formal perfumery studies at ISIPCA in Versailles, France, the only university-level perfumery school in the world. She consolidated her study of traditional techniques with sojourns to Grasse, the Provençal city that spawned perfumery in France. Following three years of apprenticeship at a fragrance house in Paris, Ineke moved to San Francisco to blend her perfumery skills with her love of design, literature and the arts in the creation of her perfume “stories”.
Gilded Lily is inspired by the superb scent of the Goldband Lily of Japan (lilium auratum) in Ineke's garden. Historically, Victorian plant hunters discovered this lily growing wild in the mountains of northern Japan, where is it known as "yama yuri", and brought it back to England. Afterwards, it became the basis for many of today's lily hybrids. Gilded Lily's "fruity chypre" structure combines the freshness of pineapple and rhubarb with the warm depth of oakmoss and patchouli. Gilded Lily is the quintessential well-groomed scent, accompanied by a head-turning deliciousness.
