Jo Loves Perfume (and so do I), part 4: Gardenia

This is much nicer.

On first application, there is a strong but not overpowering scent of white flowers, with a musk underneath. Jo Loves says the notes are gardenia blossom, white narcissus and ylang ylang, and the ylang ylang comes through clearly from the start. There’s no doubt that this is a floral, but it doesn’t have that in-your-face old-fashioned old lady floral feel about it. This is warm and pure and heady without being brash. It has a comforting sweetness, and it smells very natural, no hint of plastic or artifice.

Again, it doesn’t last very long.I got about 6 hours out of it before it was almost undetectable, and a top-up application lasted about the same.
