Tauer Gardenia is inspired by the imagery of a gardenia blooming under the moon. The natural perfume of gardenia flower is different every day; it's scent is the most beautiful at night with notes of fresh spices, roasted coffee beans, mushrooms in wet moss, creamy jasmine and the gentle perfume of rose buds, with vibrant woods and balsamic sweetness. Thus, Gardenia Sotto La Luna flowers with a spicy freshness, before maturing into a round, gentle green floral fragrance reminiscent of a hundred different flowers. It closes with powdery mosses and a creamy floral woodiness that disappears into the night. Made in Switzerland.
Editor's Notes: Gardenia is another fragrant material that cannot be naturally extracted, and so the note relies on both the perfumer’s knowledge of construction and creative brilliance to make it unique and exciting. Tauer emphasises gardenia’s buttery overtones then abstracting it with a something undeniably cosmic, like sprinkling the flower with space dust. The best gardenia, period.
