Idyllwild is a tribute to the natural wonders of California. A visit to Idyllwild, a small mountain town in California with the prettiest of names, was the starting point in Ineke's scent composition. Distillations of Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pine contribute an aromatic freshness to the fragrance. Wildcrafted sagebrush from Big Sur and Monterey cypress oil capture the aromas that waft through open windows as you drive along the coast. Rhubarb tea provides an unexpectedly tart freshness. Cypriol and oud contribute a campfire smoke note.
Top Notes: Rhubarb Tea, Grapefruit, Lavender
Middle Notes: Big Sur Sagebrush, Cypress, Fir Needle

Ineke Rühland began her formal perfumery studies at ISIPCA in Versailles, France, the only university-level perfumery school in the world. She consolidated her study of traditional techniques with sojourns to Grasse, the Provençal city that spawned perfumery in France. Following three years of apprenticeship at a fragrance house in Paris, Ineke moved to San Francisco to blend her perfumery skills with her love of design, literature and the arts in the creation of her perfume “stories”.
