Reviews of Island Gardenia

There is one review of Island Gardenia.
As Barbara Herman notes, this is an inexpensive (read far less concentration of oils and far fewer used) version of Piguet's classic Fracas. With its combo of Peach, Gardenia, Tuberose and Coconut, it is extremely "tropical."

Even Turin calls it a "Fracas-type tuberose," notes it is more tuberose than gardenia and gave it 2 stars.

Still for fans of Fracas, it is an inexpensive way to refresh oneself with the glorious and self-indulgent bouquet of white flowers without the expense.

Note though that it is extremely light, almost a cologne version of Fracas.

Top notes: Coconut, Peach
Heart notes: Gardenia, Tuberose, Jasmine, Neroli, Cyclamen
Base notes: Vanilla, Civet, Siamese Benzoin

A neutral review due to lack of originality, an obvious copy of a famous scent, but still very nice.
