After my own Heart

eau de parfum



After My own Heart is a romantic, powdery and feminine creation featuring accords of lilac. The combination with heliotrope and musk lend this fragrance it's powdery, soapy trail.

Ineke Ruhland set the standard straight away with the first fragrance in her collection: A. 'The scent of fresh lilacs carried by the early evening wind'. The Geurengoeroe describes After My Own Heart as signalling the advent of spring, that period between April and May when lilac blossoms.

A quote from Cafleurbon: " After My Own Heart is not, like many other lilac perfumes, a soliflore (perfume consisting only of one major flower) nor is it linear; though the lilac does saunter through it from start to finish. Now that the Lilac Time is here, I have drenched myself in this wonderful scent and simply must share my joy and admiration."

My favorite scent

When I spray 'After my OWN heart' I am always very happy.
I chose this scent once after a workshop and advice, 4 years ago. Never experienced a fragrance that matches my personality. I am a sporty and also classic powerful woman, working as a business coach.

Blissful perfume!

Just discovered ..

A soft scent lingers around me. Like I walk in the garden in spring when the lilac is in bloom!
