I’m saving up for a vintage of this, because it smelled so much better in the ‘80s when the juice was a rich yellow color, and the creamy, fleshy GARDENIA BOMB really let loose on skin! Current reformulated version is just “okay.” The first spray smells so promising— just like I remember— but it gets very thin and faint in a hurry’ and dries down to a tiny hint of artificial coconut. (I would …Read more

Cheap; smells gorgeous on; I even love the retro-tacky bottle. Creamy, addictive gardenia! I just wish it would last more than 2 hours on me. And I only care because I really love it.

I love Jovan musk and White musk I'm old enough to remember the original Jovan musk. Anyway as a gardenia or white floral lover I had to try this as tiare flower is such a lovely scent that I adore. This is almost to me a spot on perfect gardenia perfume. It has that sun tan lotion vibe it's not super strong but with natural tiare flower oil I get a sun tan lotion scent. Anyway this …Read more

This reminds me so much of Chanel Beige! I did not buy the Les Exclusifs Chanel Gardenia becoz it's so $$$ & I heard its not even long lasting so when I stumbled upon a website w cheap hard-to-find fragrances (fragrancenet.com is the site!!), for less than $10 I had to indulge a blind buy! I love Jovan fragrances ESP Jovan Musk, Jovan Satisfaction & this all very different but nice! …Read more

Gorgeous – and really does smell like an actual gardenia. I love that it’s buttery, lush and smooth smelling. My only criticism is that it only lasts about an hour. Everyone is right when they say there is some coconut in there which makes this have that beachy sunscreen vibe. This is perfect for summer and smells so clean.

I love this stuff! It's my daily go-to fragrance. I get compliments on it, and of course, adore that it's so affordable. Ironically, a close friend of mine smells divine in Sand & Sable, which smells awful on me. To each her own.

This stuff is a very nice gardenia/tuberose type of scent. Decently long-lasting, too. I have a bottle I've been using for maybe 5 or 6 years. However I just bought another bottle to give my mother as a gift (she goes nuts whenever I wear it). I tested the new bottle out of curiosity, and unless I'm crazy I swear it isn't quite as powerful or long-lasting as my older bottle …Read more

LOVE this stuff! It smells absolutely heavenly. - A lot of perfumes give me headaches or make me feel sick to wear, not this one! It's so feminine and lovely. While I see most reviews on this are positive, occasionally I'll see someone say it smells "old ladyish". Haha, I'm 27 so I don't believe that qualifies me as an old lady! ;) I think it smells classy, feminine …Read more

So I bought this hoping it would smell like a creamy coconutty gardenia perfume as so many others have said, but I just could not smell the creaminess... A sort of monoï smelling perfume in my hopes. It smelled like an old woman; flowery, powdery, almost a little sour, not in a rancid way, just in a "red door" kind of way, at least to me. It really is a beautiful fragrance, just not …Read more

I went to the store with the intention to buy Coty Sand & Sable. Sand & Sable was $30 and Island Gardenia $11. I tested both and and fell in love with both the price and the tropical richness of this gardenia scent. Worn with a light hand it is classically feminine. Looking forward to wearing it when the weather warms up.
