Born out of great desire to accomplish a signature line of non-cloying, easy to wear scents, Ineke Rühland who perfers to be known as a parfumier decided to develop her own line and has garnered shelf space in some of the most famous retail stores in the world. In her mid 30s, shegot serious and enrolled in the two-year perfumery program offered by France's Institut Supérieur International du Parfum, de la Cosmétique, et de l'Aromatique Alimentaire, the world's only university-level perfumery school. From appearances, she did her homework and passed with an A+. Undaunted in this adventure as the sole employee of her company, Ineke's fragrances are developing a rapid following. Count me among those who are delighted to wear each and every one of these straightforward scents.

This August, she will launch
her 5th fragrance called Evening Edged in Gold. Scented with angel trumpet, it promises to be just as unique as her others.

Keeping with the 'letters of the alphabet' which is a perfectly delightful way to name her scents, Evening Edged in Gold will follow:
After My Own Heart ~ "The scen
t of fresh lilacs floating on the early evening breeze", includes notes of bergamot, raspberry, green foliage, lilac, sandalwood, heliotrope and musk.
Balmy Days and Sundays ~ A Sunday afternoon in a park, wispy clouds floating by, carefree... with notes of freesia, leafy greens, grass, honeysuckle, rose, mimosa, chypre accent and musk.
Chemical Bond ~ Opposites attract across the bonds of the periodic table. "Sparkling citrus and powdery soft in a flirtatious alchemy." Notes of a smooth citrus cocktail, tea, blackberry, dewy peony, vetiver, amber and powdery musk.
Derring-Do ~ Clark Gable in his smoking jacket lookint quite dapper. Fresh citrus blend, rain notes, cyclamen, magnolia, fougère accents, cardamom, pepper, guaiacwood, cedarwood and musk.
