Alternative practitioner cracks Nivea formula
Well... At the first spraying on there is only a faint smell. I'm already thinking whether I have to do with a "Body Mist", and fog courageously after.
The scent makes me think of strawflowers - or rather: a meadow after a long heat wave, whose aroma wafting from afar. It is shortly before the hay mowing, the meadow flowers and herbs steam out something minimal spicy-resinous. The overall impression goes in the direction of organic cosmetics.

In my imagination, I am in a healing and massage practice. In the communal kitchen someone has put on chamomile tea, through the tilting window flows the meadow smell. All very unobtrusive. I relax on my lounger.
Just as the masseuse closes the window and tells me that she only buys Hauschka products, another smell in the room grows stronger and stronger.
"Funny," I say, "I could swear I smell Nivea, the one in the blue can."
"Oh," says the masseuse blushing, "yeah - I just can't get away from that one."
I sense: where Nivea is a guilty pleasure, nothing bad can happen to you. To women who wear Angel's Trumpet, I hand my child and tell them of my troubles, because gentle understanding awaits me.

After four hours, the scent on my skin has quietly departed after one last Nivea burst; it still hangs in my wool sweater and has added a slightly soapy quality. Overall, a nice scent. I may not wear it myself, but like to meet him from time to time.

My first review: Angel's Trumpet
After reading Sherapop's review of an Anthropologie fragrance, I decided to check out our local store to see what might be available. I went in with the mindset that there would probably not be a lot of fragrances to look at, so I started with my usual clothes shopping therapy. As I switched to fragrances, the salesperson showed me a small display near the front of the store, and then said there was also one in the back, near the dressing rooms. I was headed back that way, anyway (yes, I did find that perfect spring skirt), and found a fairly large display of various fragrances. Among them were all four of the Ineke Floral Curiosities collection! There were only 2 testers out, so I tried Angel's Trumpet and Poet's Jasmine. My personality dictates that when I can't make up my mind, I just buy both. Well, today I deviated and only bought one, Angel's Trumpet.

I do not care for "soapy" perfumes. When I wear them I just dwell on the soap, and can't enjoy the other notes to the fragrance. With AT, I totally agree with Sherapop--this is a soapy floral. But...it is glorious and a pleasure to wear. I think the florals balance the soap so well, and my nose is happy. The longevity is great--I have not reapplied since I bought it this afternoon.

Each of the four fragrances comes in a 15ml bottle, packaged in a little "book". The design is artistic and delicate -very characteristic of Ineke. I love that feeling of stumbling upon something unexpectedly--it was beautiful, and it made my day!

Fortunately, I have to return a top that I bought (as well), so I will just have to pick up the Jasmine, and maybe ask if they can start testers for the other 2 fragrances in the series!

Fresh and Natural Soapy Floral--not a contradiction in terms...
There are soapy floral perfumes, and then there are soapy floral perfumes. Ineke ANGEL'S TRUMPET is a soapy floral which I can truly appreciate. This will no doubt come as a surprise to anyone who has glanced at the above notes without sniffing the perfume, but believe me, if ever there was a soapy floral, ANGEL'S TRUMPET is a soapy floral--and a glorious one at that!

ANGEL'S TRUMPET opens ever-so-briefly with a detectable melon note, but that's really just a prelude: the main opus here here falls squarely into the floral category. The floral notes are not listed above (as is true for the others of members of this "Floral Curiosities" series, as well), and I cannot claim expertise when it comes to the actual smell of angel's trumpet. All I know is that I am picky about soap, and this one works for me.

However, because soapy notes mingle so differently on different wearers' skin, I definitely recommend that you try before you buy. Not all soap is created the same--Camay is not Dial is not Irish Spring is not Dove--and I only like certain soapy florals. This, happily, is one of them. Excellent soapy florals have great longevity and project well, and ANGEL'S TRUMPET is no exception to that rule, in addition to being a pleasure to wear.

Here are the notes according to my box, which I trust, since this was a limited edition launch available only at Anthropologie:

brugmansia ( = Angel's Trumpet)
honeydew melon
Seville orange
leafy greens
cinnamon leaf
allspice
virginia cedar
white musk
