Here, at Cadeau, we are so proud to be stocking Inis, the energy of the sea! After a long week-end in Paris, and two days of walking in the amazingly huge Maison & Objets exhibition, I stumbled upon a small stand, with beautiful turquoise and sea colours… I had to stop to have a better look, and try to have a sniff. I was coming up with flu, and was feeling feverish and generally unwell, and even though my sense of smell is not particularly acute at best of times, I fell in love with that incredible pure scent.
Everything was appealing on the stand: the cologne itself is a sparkling clean, fresh, unisex scent, that really captures the coolness, clarity and purity of the sea. The name Inis which means ‘island’ in Irish. The simplicity of the packaging. The colours: white and turquoise blue. The ethos of the brand: no testing on animals and a commitment to whales and dolphins. David, one of the creator of the brand and perfume, was very nice and friendly. And so we are now very happy to be stocking this lovely product, as well as a beautiful hand cream and body lotion with the same fragrance.
