Key Notes of Field Notes From Paris

What Does Field Notes From Paris Smell Like

Field Notes From Paris by Ineke opens with a fresh, zesty burst of bergamot intertwined with the distinct, peppery aroma of coriander seed. These radiant top notes are softened by a touch of orange blossom, lending the fragrance a light, honeyed undertone and a hint of sweet floral delicacy. The heart of the fragrance delves into more earthy territory, with a prominent patchouli scent evoking images of rich, damp soil. Tobacco and tobacco flower bring a smoky element to the composition, while cedarwood adds a touch of resinous woodiness. As the fragrance evolves on the skin, the sweetness intensifies as it reaches the base notes. Here, the combination of beeswax brings a smooth, honey-like sweetness, which is enhanced by the creamy warmth of tonka bean and the cozy, comforting scent of vanilla. The faintest hint of leather adds a subtle ruggedness, giving the fragrance an overall depth and complexity. The resulting scent is one that walks the line between fresh and earthy, sweet and spicy, floral and woody, providing an olfactory journey from the streets of Paris to its lush gardens and beyond.

Review of Field Notes From Paris

Ineke's Field Notes From Paris is a fragrance that plays with contrasts and surprises. Released in 2009, this perfume is crafted for both men and women, yet it leans slightly towards a masculine appeal. This is a perfume that tells a story, taking you on a journey through the bustling streets of Paris in the cool season.

The scent starts off with a bright, spicy and citrusy feel, courtesies of coriander seed, orange blossom, and a touch of bergamot. This is not a piercing or sharp opening but something much more refined. As the perfume starts to settle, the scent deepens into a complex woody and sweet offering. The patchouli and tobacco notes start to take the center stage, adding a richness that is both comforting and intriguing.

The longevity of the perfume is quite commendable. It's not the most potent fragrance out there, but it stays with you throughout the day, making its presence known without being overpowering. The sillage on this one is moderate, making it ideal for personal enjoyment rather than making a bold statement.

Value for money, it falls in the middle of the spectrum. It's not a budget fragrance, but for the quality and complexity of the scent, it's a worthwhile investment.

Field Notes From Paris is a perfume for cooler days and evenings, a perfect companion for a night out or a leisurely evening. While the scent is versatile enough for daily wear, it might be a bit heavy for the summer months or for those who prefer light, fresh fragrances. The woody, spicy, and slightly smoky vibe gives it a mature feel, making it a better fit for those who prefer a more sophisticated fragrance profile.
