    Default Another girlfriend scent request

    My fiance and I went sniffing yesterday. She hasn't really expressed much interest in fragrance. she normally wear Jadore and that's it.

    Yesterday we went out and smelled around. She liked Fabulous by Isaac Mizrahi. Creed Spring Flower. Bond No. 9 Central Park West. I really think she liked the last one the best. Gardenia. I did some searches on here and came across quite a few suggestions, but they all seem to be $150+.

    Any under $100? Or can someone point me to some decants?

    Regards,

    Jesse

    I don't think I smelled any of the ones you mentioned (except for J'Adore) and I am not a huge gardenia fan. However, I can suggest you a very good, underrated gardenia: Blonde by Versace. Similar to Fracas.
    It was discontinued I believe but parfum1.com still has the parfum for an unbelievable price.

    Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia. Don't let the name fool you. This is gardenia, gloriously done. And under $100 for the 50ml bottle.

    Do you have a Marks and Spencer anywhere near you? You don't say which country you're in. The Lyn Harris special edition Le Fleur which is currently on sale in the M&S stores in the UK is gardenia and lots more gardenia, with just enough background of other things to stop it becoming sickly. It's also only 25 a bottle, which makes it a nice little present rather than a large investment.

    I would go with Fracas.
