I first came across this Scent Library disguised as a book on The Scented Hound whose esteemed nose had sniffed it out way back in August. I wanted to wait until now to write about it as it makes an interesting and interactive gift for Hanukkah, Christmas or your own holiday celebration; a great affordable gift for family, a friend or a perfume fiend.
Why is this handsome gift only $US22? The purchase price is redeemable on other Ineke products so effectively it is a marketing tool if you are inspired to then require a full bottle of one of these sample sizes or any other Ineke perfume.
Included in this library of Floral Curiosities are 5 scents; my favourite is the fairy tale Briar Rose followed by Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia). Sweet William is headache-inducing to me but may not be so for you. The other scents are Poet’s Jasmine which is gorgeous and Scarlet Laskspur.
For a comprehensive breakdown on each fragrance I suggest viewing the video review by the perfectly bobbed Victoria on her EauMG YouTube channel.
Tomorrow we will look at fragrant gifts from $US5 to $US70.
