    • Gardenia Eau de Toilette Review
    • by anonymous
    • I´m already in the 2nd Bottle, and I will repruchase it always. It´s one of my top fragrances. Gardenia remembers me from a summer garden Scene in Downton Abbey: extremely elegant women dressed in pastel tons wearing pearls, the Lords talking politics, the Little smiling Girls with Velvet ribbon in their hairs running after the Boys, the patisseries served with the finest tableware surrounded by fresh flowers, just cut from this fairytale garden Gardenia is the authentic british Noblesse in form of scent. The White flowers here are cristalline, gentle, long Lasting, fresh and soooooo elegant and classy. I just love this Penhaligon´s creation! a real treasure!

    • Romantic Gardenia, Sweet And Fresh Gardenia
    • by Anaïs
    • The gardenia is a rare and magical flower, and not only for its dazzling and pure beauty but for its unique fragance, as difficult to emulate as the smell of the rain. The gardenia flower has a delicious fragance, sweet and fruity, milky but with green fresh notes within. Well, this perfume is a very loyal recreation to the original flower: soft and gentle, also femenine without renouncing the sensuality that the gardenia emanates as a flower. "Gardenia" is a beautiful and naturalistic portrait made from the sum of subtle effects (highlighting the romantic tuberose and the soft green leaves) that create a fresh and engaging breeze that transports us to the pages of a spring romance. If I had to choose I´d say this perfume was made for Marianne, the lovely and inncent protagonist (with her eldest sister Elinor) of Jane Austen´s "Sense and Sensibility".

    • Excellent And Can Be Used As A Floral By Pale Men In The Orient
    • by Galle Expat
    • I have Gardenia growing in my garden in Sri Lanka and as a white blue eyed expat I had to try this. It is more floral and sweet as a fragrance I would usually wear as a guy but the aroma is still musk enough. My girlfriends love it and its now part of an increasingly floral range I'm buying that suits blond Caucasian men in the tropics.

    • Wonderful For Weird-Skinned Women!
    • by Dr Mimi Thebo
    • Like many women, my body chemistry is more alkaline than is normal. Many perfumes fade or intensify unpleasantly during wear. Gardenia is one of the very few perfumes in the world that is heavenly just out of the bottle and still heavenly at the end of the day...usually scents this complex will not work for me, but this one is so beautifully balanced that it does. I feel immensely cherished with Gardenia when my sweetie gifts it to me. I also feel extremely confident and understood as I start every day. Bless the blender!

    • A Stroll Through Fruits, Flowers And Forest
    • by Ben
    • Penhaligon's Gardenia beautifully captures a stroll around a secluded country estate. Opening in the potager, one notices citrus fruits being cultured for cocktails and cake making, the green leaves of vines climbing over the glasshouse and clinging to the roof while colourful magnolias provide vibrancy to the surroundings. Making one’s way through to the forest gardens one’s nose is wonderfully overwhelmed with a myriad white floral bouquet: the careful crafting of the heart of Gardenia blends into a single, deep, floral fragrance, with the occasional hints of sweet gardenia, fresh rose or rich ylang-ylang coming to the fore before subsiding back into the blossomy milieu. All the while, this botanic brilliance is balanced with the animalic musk of deer that might have roamed the previous night and the woods of the nearby trees. Penhaligon’s Gardenia finally finishes with a wander through the untamed forest, with the wood and faint musk all that remain.
