Ineke Hothouse Flower

3 Mar

In honor of the arrival of Spring, my boyfriend folded up a bright pink origami paper flower for me, and I sprayed it with my beautiful sample of Hothouse Flower from Ineke. I also applied some to my wrists.

This Gardenia is sparkly, green and creamy. The fig gives it a fruity, earthy bitter-sweetness. The gardenia is done very well. It is warm and sweet, but the bright green leaves and earthiness keep it from becoming too heavy or cloying.

As it develops on my skin, the green notes lose their sharpness but retain their freshness, the fig gives faint hints of raw earth with sweet creamy coconut, and the notes meld together with my body heat to produce a truly alluring, nectar -like aroma. I am looking around to make sure I am not about to be attacked by humming birds. Projection is moderate, and longevity is good.

Hothouse Flower smells like Spring erupting on all sides. It’s Spring on steroids. It is extremely uplifting and soothing. I could see this being very complimentary to the aroma of a morning cup of coffee. It’s like natural anti-depressants. If you like gardenia, but dislike those heavy, sneeze-inducing, overpowering florals, this variation on a true to life green gardenia should help you begin your day on the right foot.
