Ineke Field Notes from Paris

7 Mar

Small empty antique bottles line the window sill in a large shower, enclosed by heavy transparent blocks. An impressive interior space in clear and frosted glass.

My sample of Field Notes From Paris from Ineke  opens with a burst of honeyed, un-smoked tobacco, earthy balsamic sweetness, and fizzy sour masculine face tonic. It is powdery, soapy, bittersweet, and very well blended.

Other tiny bottles filled with lotion, earthy warm and astringent colognes and French milled soaps are arranged on a long, clean bathroom counter.

Field Notes from Paris is a behind-the-scenes portrait of a graceful and refined older gentleman, from the perspective of a visitor.

He is out entertaining friends and as his house guest, you find yourself wandering around the intimate, tobacco-laced contours of his apartment. Particularly interesting to you, are his lavish bedroom and bathroom.

From his expensive collection of toiletries, to the colors and contents of his night stand, dresser, and the heavy purple and gold curtains blocking out the light in his bedroom, you see clearly, the side of him that he sees when he is alone.

He trusts you completely in his home, and as you wander around, You feel a little like crying, though you aren’t sure why. Maybe some day looking back it will make sense.
