"My Gardenia" solid perfume
25 69 A$25.00 - A$69.00
A divine floral Gardenia perfume made from a base of hand harvested Gardenia "enfleurage" with beautiful notes of natural Gardenia, green leaves, and soft botanical musks It is the result of a project I've been working on for a number of years, to capture the true scent of real Gardenia, to recreate the memories of my grandmothers garden at dusk... It's been a difficult project, as real Gardenia oil is no longer produced by any of the traditional perfume suppliers I could find. I went back to the traditional way of capturing the scent by painstakingly harvesting Gardenia flowers by hand, and placing them on a mixture of oil and wax to let the subtle and volatile scent molecules sink into the base. This process was repeated with hundreds of Gardenia flowers over the weeks of the flowering season, changing them twice a day till the base was thoroughly soaked with the scent. This was then melted down and blended with the rest of the perfume ingredients to create a real old fashioned solid Gardenia perfume. "My Gardenia".
