San Francisco perfume house Ineke announces the launch of its new “Scent Library,” which contains generous samples of all five fragrances in their Floral Curiosities fragrance collection.
 
 
Discover five beautiful flowers with distinct personalities in this pleasant little volume. Each flower’s unique character is expressed through the artistically rendered packaging, which uses fine art and calligraphy in a package that resembles a vintage book.



The Floral Curiosities collection includes five fragrances:

Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia) - Fresh and opulent, Angel’s Trumpet opens with refreshing notes of honeydew melon, Seville orange and leafy greens. Angel Trumpet’s rich floralcy is then warmed by cinnamon leaf and allspice and supported by Virginia cedar and white musk.

Briar Rose (Rosa rubiginosa) - Fruity and floral, a pretty rose-violet accord given big character with supporting notes of black raspberry, green apple, warm spices, patchouli, cacao and vanilla.

Poet’s Jasmine (Jasminum officinale) - Citrus and herbal, a fragrance inspired by Poet’s Jasmine tea, replete with slices of citrus fruit. Added points of interest include star anise, rosemary, absinthe, frankincense, cardamom, hinoki wood and guaiac wood.

Scarlet Larkspur (Delphinium cardinale) - Floral oriental, a bright fruity opening of blood orange, red currant and morello cherry deepens over time with notes of claret wine, nutmeg, saffron, amyris wood, tonka bean and vanilla.

Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus) - Woody and sweet, a peach schnapps note introduces the spicy Sweet William floral accord, and is further warmed with cinnamon, clove and cumin essential oils. The dominant wood notes are a blend of cedarwood, sandalwood and patchouli, softened with Bourbon vanilla.

 

 
Also enclosed in each box are “library cards,” resembling the old typewritten card catalogs of yesterday's libraries, describing the plants that inspired each fragrance, along with the fragrance notes.
 
 
Each spray bottle contains 2.5 ml/0.1 fl. oz. of fragrance—ample opportunity to try all five and select a favorite or two. The price is $22 in the US and Canada, 22 euros in EU countries, and the price is redeemable against a purchase of any 75 ml fragrance purchase from the Ineke website. 
 
The Floral Curiosities Scent Library, as well as the Deluxe Sample Collection featuring the fragrances of the Alphabetical collection, and full-size fragrances from both collections are all available on the official Ineke website

First review that has ever made me want to try something based on the review. I agree with Cybernoir that the library concept is very clever.

These all sound absolutely gorgeous. Especially Angel's Trumpet, Poet's Jasmine, ans Sweet William (I just love me some cinnamon). The price is definitely enticing, but I need to pace myself; I just bought a boat load of full bottles of other fragrances that I had been wanting for a while. I'll definitely keep my eyes on these though for some time in the future. :)

I received a gift of the Alphabetical Collection sample set from a friend, and the packaging was as much of a delight as the scents. This one looks like another winner. All of the Ineke scents are so pretty!
