Hothouse Flower, INeKE Perfumes
Ineke Perfumes HOTHOUSE FLOWER - Gardenia Soliflore. Alphabetical Collection. Launched in 2012, this gorgeous treasure is everything you might expect it to be: a big, noisy, happy gardenia. "A hothouse elegance, wrought from an overindulgence in gardenia." Or more simply put...A gardenia for the ages.
Hothouse Flower - from renowned "nose" Ineke Ruhland, is one of those rare fragrances that comes along, regrettably, once in eons. And we do not jest.
Recently discovered by a trusted pal in the world of niche perfumery...Inasmuch as we trust her judgment implicitly, we sampled. And we sniffed. And we sighed. And we sniffed again. And we were conquered.
As you may well imagine, given that we've been exposed to many more scents than we can remember, we've learned that the process must remain very, simple. If we just cannot stop sniffing, period - then it's for us. If we find ourselves heading to the shelves to spray something over and over again - as in 10X/day and once again at bedtime for good measure - then it's for us. And Hothouse Flower is, most decidedly and without equivocation, for us. Weve a sneaking suspicion we will not be alone re: our new favorite fragrance...
