Gilded Lily, INeKE Perfumes
Ineke Perfumes GILDED LILY - Fruity Chypre. Alphabetical Collection. Launched in 2010, this lovely scent is just the thing for those among us who simply can't have too many lilies in our lives.
The name GILDED LILY is derived from Shakespeare's King John:
"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp,
To guard a title that was rich before,
To gild refined gold, to paint the lily...
Ineke Ruhland was inspired by this beloved flower, its captivating, extraordinary perfume and its mysterious powers to bewitch and delight. The broad themes of the flower's perfume provide the inspiration for her composition.
Enchanting, fascinating, mysterious, capricious... INeKE Perfumes Gilded Lily embraces the varied olfactory themes of the Lily flower: its top note, fresh and green, is a blend of pineapple and rhubarb. This is followed closely by its blooming heart notes of the Goldband Lily of Japan. And this beauty finishes with such a very lush bottom of patchouli, oakmoss and labdanum.
All of these accords conspire to conjure a suave m�lange that succeeds in presenting a bewitchingly united front.
Presented in quite the chic and classic flacon. All part of the strategy---why complicate things when the fragrance is this sublime?
