A graceful, generous, opulent fragrance that awakens the senses, Gardenia Petale captures all stages in the life of the gardenia flower.
The modern composition opens with a unique accord of fresh, green and citrus notes, followed by floral touches of delicate lily-of-the-valley and exotic jasmine and finishing with the elegant, femininity of gardenia flowers in full bloom at dawn.
Van Cleef & Arpels, the world-renowned Paris jeweler, pays tribute to nature with a range of magnificent fragrant compositions inspired by its LesJardins ("The Gardens") jewelry range.
Created with the finest raw materials in the great tradition of French luxury perfumery, Van Cleef & Arpels debuts the Collection Extraordinaire with six scents, each given a formulation number by the master perfumer and presented in a hallmarked and embossed presentation gift box.
