Sweet and delicate, gardenia is a counterpoint to the powerful and punchy tuberose. The silky, floral scent is derived from the gardenia plant, native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, Madagascar and the Pacific Islands. The intoxicating scent is famously expensive and hard to produce, with many perfumers pairing the scent with other white floral accords such as tuberose and jasmine. While gardenia perfumes can be worn all-year round, they are perfect for hot summer months. In this guide we take you through our edit of the best gardenia fragrances, with top offerings from Tom Ford, Chanel, Annick Goutal and Aerin.
