    Default Famous fragrances with gardenia in them? ...

    I have discovered that I really dislike gardenia and I wonder whether it is only gardenia in certain perfumes that I tried that triggered this dislike (such as Marc Jacobs)...or is it really that gardenia in ANYTHING will have this effect on me?

    I am curious about other famous/mainstream fragrances where the predominant note is gardenia...what are they?

    Chanel Gardenia smells a lot like jasmine to me, maybe you would like that better.

    Famous or infamous?
    I think my first memory of perfume was watching The Price is Right back in the early-mid '60s, and one of the consolation prizes was Jungle Gardenia by Tuvache [in Don Pardo voiceover]. I remember thinking it was such an exotic name, it must smell incredible. And keep in mind that I was an 8-year old boy! I did smell it in a department store, I think, and never forgot it. Decades later, a woman where I work walked by me and I smelled JG on her! Upon commenting on her perfume, she just about had a heart attack, because 1) I could recognize her perfume, and 2) it had been discontinued for quite some time (I think).

    Virtually off-topic, I admit, but that's my gardenia story. BTW, I love tropical white flower scents (gardenia, jasmine, sampaquita, etc.), but only on women - too sweet and floral for me!

    I was thinking of Jungle Gardenia too when I posted, but it's been gone so long that I dismissed it. But that was a great gardenia! My mother used to wear that in a lotion form-- very potent.

    There is no much gardenia in Chanel Gardenia really. In fact, I think gardenia is not contained in this perfume. It is not only me feeling this way. There are many people feeling in the same way if you check certain amount of reviews

    Annick Goutal Gardenia Passion

    I used to wear the original Jungle Gardenia by Tuvache. It has been re-released as Tuvache Gardenia, but I haven't tried it.
