Very nice. Fresh, as Lizzie said, but still instantly recognizable as gardenia. Warm, womanly never offensive or trashy. Better than Chanel's (which is still one of their best), because Chanel's is a more complex, finetooled, almost berry-like scent.
A chic, cosmopolitan gardenia. Fresh, well composed and evolving, not cloying or heady as one sometimes expects a gardenia fragrance to be. It opens with a provocatively spiced (Brazilian spice says Calypso East Hampton) Gardenia zested by touch of fresh citrus, warms to a heart of narcissus, jasmine and luscious peach blossom sweetened and rounded by vanilla and soft musk and revved up by Coriander, grounded and simultaneously given an aura of mystery by an elegant Vetiver. Quite nice.
