Ineke Chemical Bonding

21 Feb

Thank you Ineke, for the gorgeous samples. They remind me of meticulously packaged Japanese gifts, in that no detail of the presentation is overlooked.

Chemical Bonding opens with a very tart citrus black tea. I detect a light green floral thickened with musk as the fragrance opens up on my skin, though the sour lemon is persistent, with a somewhat synthetic, cleaning solvent-like character.  On my skin the lemon treads that line, but the tea and musk manage to keep it in check.

During the dry down, Chemical Bonding becomes an inoffensive peony musk. It makes me wonder what the whole thing would have been like without the musk. I wish the peony weren’t muddled by the musk and the brash quality of the lemon. If the tea and peony were louder, and the lemon and the musk softer, I think it would be gorgeous. Longevity is quite good, and its projection is moderate.

As it is, It reminds me of a petite and slightly disheveled brunette, on a rainy mission to the bibliothèque to continue her research on caryatids. Everyone seems more attractive when the alternative is studying.
