Due out this September is the latest fragrance from artisanal San Francisco perfumer Ineke. With notes of gardenia and tea, the new Hothouse Flower scent continues the local company’s tradition of offering up fragrances with botanical roots and everyday wearability.
With fireworks on the horizon and a mid-week holiday spreading a nice dose of summer spirit around these parts, it’s going to be a quieter seven-day stretch in San Francisco than most. But there are still stylish diversions ahead. Along with going big on July 4th, entertain yourself this week with a visit to the first annual Artisan Fragrance Salon, featuring a who’s who of local perfumers that includes Ineke, Yosh, L’Aromatica and more. A chance to scope local designers’ apparel and accessories comes on Sunday during the burner-and-bohemian-friendly Beyond the Fence trunk show. For bloggers, Saturday’s Blog Brunch means audience-building and virtual socializing with bloggers around the country.
Beauty products that not only deliver welcome results, but last and last and last get our shatter-polished thumbs up every time. We recently discovered such tandem benefits in Bay Area-based beauty line Captain Blankenship.
San Francisco perfumer Ineke has added another scent to its fragrance collection. Dubbed Gilded Lily ($88), the seventh scent from the classically-trained Ineke Ruhland mixes top notes of pineapple and rhubarb with the floral scent of Goldband Lily and base notes of earthy patchouli and oakmoss.
