    Default I just want to introduce myself.

    Hi there! i just found this website, and it's fabulous! I just wish I'd found it years ago. I love perfume, rose is my favourite scent. Gardenia is a very close second. I enjoy EDP's the most, although I will use EDT if I have no other choice. Any suggestions for perfumes with rose as the main fragrance would be awesome, any gardenia ones too. Or even better, if there's a rose and gardenia scent, where the 2 are mixed!
    Anyway, nice to meet you all. I hope to get to know you better!

    Welcome, Mosaic! Have u tried Stella by Stella McCartney? It does come in EDP!

    As for Gardenia, pls allow me to refer u 2 a thread from couple weeks back:
    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    ¿Si o No?

    Hi Mosaic! Welcome from another newbie! I'm not a huge fan of rose, so I'm not a good judge of that, but as far as gardenia goes, I find the gardenia in Dior Pure Poison to be very pronounced. Still, all time favorite gardenia is Marc Jacobs. I wore it for quite a while, and I've been tempted to go back to it.

    Hello, Mosaic. Have you tried layering your favorite rose with a favorite gardenia fragrance? It could work beautifully.

    Hello Mosaic, Welcome to Basenotes. Do try some of the following, if you have not sampled them already. Newbies and Old Timers at Basenotes will recommend many more.
    Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan Parfumeur,
    Stella by Stella McCartney (as mentioned before),
    Lady Vengeance by Juliette Has a Gun,
    Une Rose by Frederic Malle
    Gardenia by Isabey,
    Monyette Paris (a sweet vanilla, gardenia),
    Gardenia Passion by Annick Goutal,

    Just to start

    +1 for Stella McCartney. Paul Smith Rose is a lovely, true rose scent.

    My favourite gardenias are Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia, & Van Cleef & Arpels Gardenia Petale.

    l don't recall any perfumes that have both notes.

    try Hothouse Flower by Ineke. Soooooo nice. Ineke also makes a pleasant one called Briar Rose.

    Welcome. Aside from any suggestions you have and will get, you can always try the fragrance directory; hit the advanced search tab and you can search fragrances by notes, or combination of notes. I just ran it and it said there were 155 fragrances with those two notes together. Have fun!
