Unabashedly lush and feminine, Gardénia Pétale is perhaps the truest recreation of the gardenia’s sensuality we’ve encountered. If you’ve ever dipped your nose into a gardenia’s creamy petals, you know the narcotic opulence this flower possesses. In Gardénia Pétale, perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer captures all the stages of gardenia’s life, from its almost citrusy, green bud to the delicate freshness of a newly opened blossom to the fulsome headiness of the gardenia in full bloom.
Gardénia Pétale is an especially rich fragrance with grand sillage. We imagine wearing it on a summer’s night when moonlight silvers the garden, or when the streets are carpeted in thick, white snow, setting off the fragrance’s pure luxuriance. A dab of Gardénia Pétale behind the ears would perfectly complement the view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower, or dinner for two in a room bathed in candlelight. If ever a fragrance were made for grand gestures, it’s Gardénia Pétale.
