Pristine Rainforest in a Bottle
MARC JACOBS WOMAN-EDP, by Marc Jacobs

Opens as a ravishingly gorgeous aquatic-white-floral with citric bergamot flourishes.

Develops into a headily-sweet, creamy-fresh, cool-dewy, crisp-green and pristinely beautiful non-indolic jasmine/honeysuckle accord. Everything is swirled through and through with delicately spiced peppery-ginger which provides a touch of exquisite piquant complexity and depth to the intoxicatingly heady white floral “gardenia” core.

On my skin this perfume is a perfect balance between the cold-dewy-green-freshness of the jasmine/honeysuckle accords and the zesty-dry-warm-spiciness of the peppery ginger accord in tandem with the tender cedarwood base. The enchanting tropical green vegetation melds seamlessly into the sultry-sweet florals, and remains consistent throughout the development. This is without question one of the most ravishingly beautiful rainforest-fresh-florals I have ever tested on my skin. A clean and unobtrusively elegant and smooth cedar dry down, with the barest hint of an anchoring white musk finishes this blissful olfactory experience.

With this scent, visions abound of pristine tropical vegetation and the most stunningly exotic dewy fresh-flora imaginable. Brings to mind dreamlike images of Moorea Island and peaks in Tahiti. And perhaps most of all, Kauai, The Garden Island, maybe the most beautiful of all the islands of Hawaii, with high-plunging white ribboned waterfalls cascading over lush-green misty-rainforest mountain canyons.

Never too sweet, never cloying. Never sour or bitter. No harsh edges. Everything blended to seamless, silken-smooth perfection. No overdone heaviness in the base to sully or detract from the perfection of the celestial white floral mélange. This is stunningly beautiful to me, and on me.

Thank you forever from the bottom of my heart to Steve Demercado and Loc Dong.

Fresh gardenia
Marc Jacobs (along with Kai), are two of the best gardenia scents around.

This is a very creamy and soft interpretation of gardenia with a clean and refreshing approach. The composition has very smooth transitions from the top notes to the middle notes, to the base.

The greeness doesn't really come through for me in this fragrance, which is a good thing seeming that I usually dislike green scents of any kind. Gardenia, jasmine and tuberose are of course essential ingredients for a successful white floral blend, however here they are highlighted with some refreshing and citrusy bergamot.

The gardenia continues into the heart, where I suspect there are hints of rose in there somewhere. It stays mostly floral throughout this stage until the introduction of damp and musky cedarwood and subtle ginger accords. The drydown can best be described as a skin scent, very natural.

Marc Jacobs' soapy gardenia can easily be a casual and formal scent. Its versatility is evident, even through the seasons. Lasting strength is exceptionally good, however the sillage is quite intimate. This is definitely a choice for an elegant, refined and beautiful lady.
