Gilded Lily

Posted in

Presenting the Goldband Lily as the pure heart of her most recent fragrance, Ineke  Ruhland opens the scent with a fruit medley – grapefruit, pineapple, rhubarb, and bergamot. I smell the sweetness of the flower, then tangy citrus from grapefruit and bergamot and juicy, slightly under-ripe pineapple, balanced by sour rhubarb and elemi – a perfectly genius fruit accord, which creates the sensation of catching  the airborne scents of the fresh fruits, rather than their intense tastes on your tongue!
Then the heart, the beautiful white floral of the lily is showcased, soft and non-indolic, perfectly framed by the gourmand notes, and the warm woody base notes – oakmoss, patchouli, and labdanum.  The waft is light, but full and rich, and is the work of an artist.
Notes: grapefruit, pineapple, rhubarb, elemi, bergamot, Goldband Lily, patchouli, oakmoss, labdanum.
