    Gardénia Pétale by Van Cleef & Arpels

    I fully agree with Teardrop about some Yosh's fragrances conjurations (Stargazer, Ginger Ciao, Whiteflowers) aroused by this fragrance. What can i say? Lovely, really lovely and almost utterly natural/indolic floral with an heady gardenia, one of my favorite floral around because of its radiant and joyful temperament. The beginning is sparkling and may be slightly gingery. I detect a sheer jasmine engaged in rivaling with its main counterpart (jasmine) and a musky lily of the valley rising at distance under my nose. Each part of the developing smell is fresh, fragrant, radiant and optimistic in the general sophistication of the olfactory work. The musky touch is sensual a bit over casting the initial whiteness. The dry down is extremely subtle and sophisticated with a really sensual mature vibe. For an half age business woman.
