Gardenia

Gardenia fragrans

Enfleurage in Colombia from organically grown flowers

Sweet, delightful and delicious, this is our wonderful gardenia oil, made from a modern enfleurage process, using certified organic palm oil, in Colombia, South America. This is not an solvent extraction, but the true essence of the flower herself. This oil is perfectly delicate and delightful. Our enfleurage process does not use any animal fat.

Arctander writes a lot about Gardenia concretes from “many years ago”, on La Réunion, Sri Lanka, Grasse, etc, but none of them seem to have worked out. Rather than this being gardenias “limited use in perfumery” I think it reveals the quality of these extractions. Gardenia will not give up her scent lightly and I think that the big “mushroom” note is key—without it your oil is just a flower without a characteristic mushroom note. Our Gardenia enfleurage was highly reviewed by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez in their A-Z guide (2008) and its “mushroom hologram” was well noted.

Basically, this oil is for gardenia lovers, and other scent mavens. No idea what this exquisite oil "does" but it's beautiful and unusual and perfect gardenia, so if you are a perfumer, or just love gardenias, this is the oil for you.  

Gardenia 

It dissipates through the air
Gently teasing your nose
A fragrance so lovely
Grabbing as it goes
Its beauty so dazzling
That you can’t even see
But a mural so enormous
Is what it brings to me
The scent of a Gardenia
Filled with memories

Applied very lightly
To one’s porcelain skin
Ambience of invisible beauty
A love trail begins
The scent of Gardenia
Filled with memories
An aroma so blinding
That of romantic power
Only but a shrub
Not even a flower

The scent of Gardenia

--Oscar Robles

 

White Gardenia Night

Gardenias saturate the night,
clothed in their array of lovely white.
Their fragrance permeates the nose,
and far outshines the perfect rose.

White Gardenias take me there,
while I sit upon my chair.
And listen to the crickets play,
in their orchestrative way.

I feel blessed to be,
alone in my revery,
on a White Gardenia night!

---Rebecca Wiles
