INeKE San Francisco

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."

INeKE San Francisco

Ineke Rühland is a classically trained perfumer who creates original fragrances in her independent studio in San Francisco.

She was born and educated in Canada but moved to Europe in 1988 for a career in the perfume industry. Thus she discovered a passion for the creative role of professional “nose”. She started her perfumery training at ISIPCA in Versailles, France in 1996. She lived in Grasse and combined her studies with the study of traditional techniques.

After a three-year internship at a perfume house in Paris, Ineke moved to San Francisco where she combines her talent for perfumery with her love of design, literature and art in the creation of her perfume "stories", named following the alphabet. We wish that also after Z, Ineke keeps on creating!

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!
