Wow! Gorgeous bottle and it does sound divine. I recall you looking for Isabey Gardenia before and that piqued my interest...who sells Isabey in North America?
I just noticed this release on ausliebezumduft.de and would love to order a sample.
Has anyone had the opportunity to sniff this one yet?
The bottle is beautiful, and the perfume itself inspired by a vintage one from their original line.
The fragrance, inspired by a world of crystal and amethyst, was entrusted to Jean Jacques who envisioned an exceptionally rich floral bouquet with fruity white flowers. The top note consisting of mandarin, mixed with apricot blossoms and white peach instantly gives you the safe feeling that you are holding in your hands a perfume of exceptional, noble and valuable ingredients. The fragrance then plunges into a heart of jasmine, Gardenia and Magnolia, with a quality which is very rarely found today. The fond leaves a strong wake of extraordinary elegance with a sunny chord of vanilla and patchouli.
Head: Tangerine, Apricot Blossom, Peach
Heart: Jasmine, Magnolia, Gardenia
Base: Vanilla, Patchouly
Im not sure about N.A 3xasif :-/ But yes, I adore Gardenia and am anxious to try this one.
