Field Notes From Paris is inspired by Ineke Ruhland’s days spent studying the art of classical perfumery in the city itself and Versailles. A woody oriental scent, Field Notes From Paris was released with the motto ‘Life measured out in coffee spoons’, and the fragrance is a bold, rich composition reminiscent of a warm cappuccino. Warming tobacco notes are combined with the rich spice aromas of coriander, tonka bean, and patchouli, cut through with citrus floral accords. A base of leather, vanilla, and honey leaves a luxurious dry down.
