a creamy white blossom unfurls on a summer evening, it breathes softly an intoxicating musk that hangs in the air. it slowly seduces. a quiet steady hum that vibrates on all levels. surrender to the olfactory force of pure gardenia. the delicate essence of its petals is released through the old art of enfleurage. a treasure from the east, it represents grace, subtlety and artistry. the fragrant song of gardenia is joined by the spicy richness of tuberose, the calming nature of powdery rose geranium and the exotic undertones of guaiac wood, orange peel and clove buds.
introduced from asia to england in 1754, originally named cape jasmine, and used in traditional chinese medicine and for boutonnieres in france. it flourished all over the sunny terraces of spain and andalusia, beloved as a hair ornament and figured prominently into spanish folk songs and art.
