Perfumer Olivier Creed looks beyond our times and revives the innocence first bloom of love with Fleurs de Gardenia, a fragrance for women. In the French country workshop where his son, Erwin, works alongside him, Mr. Creed blends First Love gardenias, which grow only in pairs, to rewrite romance the way we first felt it a pure, gentle, dreamlike reality of fluttering hearts and soaring spirits. Double Blush roses, lavender peonies and other flowers chosen by the young generation of the House of Creed become the master perfumer’s portrait of how love was…and can be again. Fleurs de Gardenia’s feminine bottle seems to blush purple with the heady romance of this perfume. Top notes: Pink berries, fresh, ripe blackcurrant, engaging galbanum. Middle notes: First Love Gardenias, double blush roses, lavender peonies, Lily of the Valley, Pink Jasmine. Base notes: Soft musk, Pink Patchouli, Virginia cedar.
