Van Cleef & Arpels Gardénia Pétale
The gardenia exudes unparalleled power of attraction. Intoxicating and magnetic, this unruly plant suffuses a unique, immediately recognisable scent. This sensual ingredient served as the basis for a delicate and diaphanous essence.
“Symbolising loyalty and sincerity, perfumery often expresses gardenia in fruity compositions; but I chose to take a different direction, capturing the air skimming over a bouquet like a comforting breeze."
Nathalie Feisthauer, Perfumer.
