Gardenia or how the red thread came into the green...
There it is again, this note that is more or less present in some ET scents. Like a red thread. Unmistakable Liz! So straight as a die and without regard to losses, in this variant the gardenia is administered here. Another "If he's too strong, you're too weak" descendant. But it's a little like the S&M practices. Some are swaying and others are letting it happen. I have been "admitted" to Gardenia and have been able to round off ET's sweet smells with my personal preferences of her waters with him.
The prelude clearly makes me a trio, mixed in and with power. Ivy provides the green flavor, lily of the valley with a concentrated portion of white and gardenia even whiter. Normally too much white for me, but here somehow quite pleasant, even if really engaging. Somehow this ingestion has the consequence for my nose that the remaining notes go down in the threesome. Perhaps they act discreetly as support. As if the stars were at the front of the stage or in the film and they were the ones in the background who made it all possible. The agents, so to speak, managers and entourage. So the scent doesn't change much for me. He doesn't have to. Where Gardenia is written on it, there should also be some to sniff, where else would be the sense of the naming?
Of course I see Liz in my mind's eye, in her white dress from "the cat on the hot tin roof". And I can hear the delicate and fine fabric rustle easily as it swings with her every step and I can smell the scent on her as she descends down the stairs in the house. Pulling behind him and putting Gardenia in the air, if he had already existed at that time. Sublime and sensual at the same time, eroticism and purity united in itself. Innocence and greed as a weapon for every moment.
Thus, the Gardenia seems to me to be better suited for the warmer seasons, when one can really play with the clothes and its charms. Under the high-closed, the scent will rebel until it is released. He just needs to get in the air and show himself. Somewhere else he might choke himself.
Again one comes irrevocably to the comparison with Liz. This alternation of feelings, the moodiness and then again the childlike, needy of support, which pushes you away again in the next moment.
I find Gardenia from the ET creations together with White Diamonds the fragrance that best dresses a woman like Liz.
