So I've been on an unsniffed fragrance treasure hunt from unfamiliar lines and have acquired quite a few gems. Ineke is one of them. I ordered the sample set and decided that I really like 3 of the six. After My Own Heart, Chemical Bonding, and the lovely Evening Edged in Gold. I decided use my credit for a full-size bottle of EEIG. It is similar but also unlike what I usually wear. I tend to gravitate toward spicy florentals. IMO this a familiar yet unique blend of notes that contrast and compliment in a way that just makes me smile. Warm and spicy but floral and woody and finally there is this sweet leather, that I hangs on to my skin like an elegant dewy summer night, with your special someone, neither saying much but the romantic silence says everything. This is to me definitely an evening edged in gold.

Notes: osmanthus, plum, angel's trumpet, saffron, cinnamon bark, midnight candy, leather and woods.
This fragrance opens with an accord in which spices such as saffron and fruits like plum mix beautifully on a base of leather . The top accord is warm, rich, velvety and vaguely reminds me of Daim Blond. What is different to Daim Blond is that underneath I smell a high-pitched sweet floral note which as the fragrance progresses is absorbed into accord. This fragrance is like Daim Blond with less suede and more golden flowers and therefore well-suited for those who are sensitive to birch tar and the like. The leather note however, is too weak to carry this impression for long, and after two hours the fragrance cannot but reveals its mostly vegetal nature. Smelled from far away it is still reminiscent of Daim Blond, but smelled up close it is different and rather flat. Lasts roughly 5 hours on my skin.

Sometimes, I want to wear something in the summer that's a change from my usual light, green, citrus, floral frags and Evening Edged In Gold might be it for me. I'm wearing this in very hot weather and although it's a substantial floral, spicy, woody frag, I don't feel it to be stifling at all. Two of the major notes featured are Angel's Trumpet and Midnight Candy and I don't know what either smell like in real life but I am enjoying Evening Edged in Gold. The cinammon lends a nice touch also. Will be purchasing.

This is not my usual kind of fragrance, but, of all the Ineke scents, this one stole my heart. It is very well balanced, floral, but comforting, juicy, but spicy, familiar, yet unique. It brings to me an image of a woman from Tarkovsky's movie. There is nothing about her that would tell you about time/period she lives in. She is genuinely beautiful, strong yet very feminine. I imagine her standing in a field, surrounded by tall dry grasses, wearing an ivory shawl and a long light dress. Wind plays with her golden, long hair. Air is heavy, right before the rain. The sun is low and it colors everything in orange hues... There is only sound of wind in grasses and trees. And it smells of ripe summer...

Was not impressed. Seemed old fashion and cheap. Not golden at all.

A heavy, dated oriental. It reminds me of Donna Karan Gold and the over-embroidered orientals of that ilk. I feel like I'm overdressed in shoulder pads, rhinestones and 7" hooker heels and starring in Dallas as the home-wreaker. I know this type of fragrance works beautifully on some, so this is naturally all opinion and chemistry, but the glowing reviews I'd read on this do not hold up. Disappointing and same-y. Not new, no matter what it smells like on.

The notes as described on beatyhabit.com are:
"Top notes of gold osmanthus and plum mingle with middle notes of angels's trumpet's, saffron and cinnamon - on a base of midnight candy, leather and woods."
I find this to be very week and it has almost no sillage, but when I bury my nose into my wrist, I get a fragrance that reminds me of MPG's Or des Indes, with it's strange musty golden smell from the saffron and osmanthus, much like the gilding on encyclopedia pages or other older books. Over that is a slightly ozonic smelling floral that threatens to imply a more mass market style, and then it morphs into a gently sweet plum and lily fragrance.
There's definitely a languid, sweetly nostalgic quality to this one if you ignore the subtly ozonic quality. The name really does fit it - this calls to mind a humid summer twilight in the country, the world bathed in pink and gold light through a sunset. But sadly, that world is only conjured up when your nose is placed directly on your skin.
