    I wonder if with the IFRA restriction, Saripatates might be right after all - only in Arabian perfumery will one find true jasmine extract (and provided that Amouage doesn't further water down its quality).

    +1 the $$$ Jardenia for gardenias.

    al qurashi's royal jasmine is dense, good and inexpensive.

    ajmal also has (or had) some excellent soliflores, jasmine being amongst them.

    I'm surprised neither suga or hedonist mentioned them
    My experience in Egypt was that they were very variable, and often adulterated. The great ones were great; I have some "Ful Saudi" ( sambac ) that might be what the OP seeks, but you had to sniff the oil before buying, as the same name was never a guarantee of the same product.

    Isn't sambac the same as pikake? I suggest you try Pacifica Waikiki Pikake. Inexpensive and very pleasant. I don't think they ship out of the USA though-- not sure where you are located.

    For gardenia, I've never smelled a truer one than JAR Jardenia but wow, the price-- and the difficulty in buying it (other than in person.)

    Chantecaille Pétales has a lovely gardenia top note but it evolves into tuberose and other notes. My daughter loves it. Maybe worth sampling?

    Then of course there is good ol' Kai, a green gardenia which some love and some scorn. Worth a try in my opinion. Try the roll-on oil first, rather than the edt.

    Jo Malone's new company, Jo Loves, has Gardenia -- have not tried it yet, not available in the USA yet. http://www.joloves.com/fragrances/gardenia

    Then there were many fragrances suggested in your other thread that you haven't tried. l highly recommend that you try Bruno Acampora Jasmin, Nasomatto Nuda & By Kilian's Love & Tears. Luckyscent.com is the place to get samples of these.

    Do you have Lush shops in Sri Lanka? Their Lust perfume is worth a try, l think.
