Love this scent. I know of no other that comes this close to the real scent of gardenias, pure and simple and so beautiful. And it doesn't change on my skin.

Beautiful gardenia. Much better than five other gardenia fragrances also on my arm. At this point, not picking up much from the Jo Malone except the flower, and that's all it needs.

I got this by mistake from the sales person. I actually wanted the orange blossom, but when I got home it was the vintage gardenia in the box. But to my surprise I loved it. The gardenia smell is...

This is gardenia with a strong hint of smth spicy ( cumin/cardamon?). I definitely understand the "vintage" feeling they want to create but I have never been a fan of this style and this fragrance...

This smelled like the interior of my beloved Auntie Hilda's home. Old, sort of musty, less than fresh. This must be the "vintage" note. Fresh gardenias do not smell like this at all. I do love...

Goes on as a candy-sweet/tart tuberose, just lovely, and starts to dry down in what I can only describe as art school: Linseed Oil from the oil paints, the faint perfume of the florals, the hint of...

This gardenia has the softness of a kitty cat's paw and bears no harsh, synthetic undertones, which has been known to happen with certain floral notes. I frequently reach for it during the spring...
