It's a light, lively leather scent that shows many facets: gourmand but never too sweet; sophisticated but casual; beloved by male and female fans alike. Seekers of "signature" scents take note. This a distinctive, striking scent that leaves a captivating trail in its wake. It's also one of those rare occasions where the bottle alone—printed with hand-drawn maps of Parisian streets — is worth possession. The box design cleverly features Ineke's actual journal notes from her days of perfumery school.
Notes include coriander seed, orange flower, bergamot, tobacco flower and leaf, patchouli, cedar, tonka bean, leather, beeswax, vanilla.
She honed her traditional perfumery techniques with sojourns to Grasse, the city that spawned perfumery in France. Ineke apprenticed at an esteemed fragrance house in Paris for three years before moving to San Francisco and eventually launching her alphabetical line in the summer of 2006. An enthusiastic gardener, Ineke derives inspiration from her collection of rare scented botanicals. Her passion for literature, design and the arts are reflected in every bottle. Through original photos, artwork and snippets of verse, Ineke crafts an intimate backstory for each scent.
