When my 2004 daughter was born I wanted to get a scent that I would live with forever, if I had other perfumes that was fine. but this one scent would be my signature.
I searched for a long time, nothing seemed quite right. Finally, I stumbled on Gardenia by Chanel. It was love at first scent…
Unfortunately I don’t think this is currently available in the U.S. as it was a limited release. It is described as “The legendary fragrance from the 20’s, a luscious floral – dew-drenched leaves, creamy petals and the charm of vanilla – conjures up fond memories of the glamorous, worldly women who first discovered it and led myriad hearts astray in seductive mists of scent.”
I now understand what the right perfume does for a woman. I’ve been using it for almost 3 years now and totally love it. I have a small collection of empty 1.2 oz spray bottles.
I’m keeping my eye on that perfume, parfum pour les francais, if someone would let my dear husband know, that would be great!
I also wouldn’t mind the 3.4 oz size, to mix things up a little.
It seems the only way to get this now, is to order off the chanel website, which is fine with me, as long as they keep it available! It is just the right strength for me to put on but not feel nauseous or overpowered by strong fumes. It is wonderful and unlike any other scent on the market. I wish they would come out with lotions and potions with this scent.
