Derring-Do by Ineke
Sometimes you just want to smell nice. On a warm day when you’re running around you might even want something fresh and light. Rifling through the sample ‘ho pile I came across this little number by San Francisco-based perfumer Ineke. It has bright citrus and something called “rain notes” (which I actually enjoyed) before becoming a very nice fougère with a lovely woody skin-musk drydown. It’s listed as a man’s scent but I see no reason at all that you ladies shouldn’t indulge. If I was, say, March I’d consider keeping this next to the 4711 in the icebox. Unlike the classic cologne, this has lasting power. At $88 for 75ML it’s also a relative bargain.
Available at her website or at Nordstrom. Don’t know where my sample came from. Space maybe.
