Florence and gardenias
Quite sure it’s difficult to create an amazing gardenia scent. Don’t let the name Florence full you- this is a straight up gardenia perfume. The main and only prominent note I get here is gardenia. Now, I happen to love this gorgeous tropical white beauty and adore its scent. However, it can be hard to pull off because it can be a bit over the top. In the same way, as a rose composition can be challenging in a perfume. All in all, it’s a very decent perfume. As I mentioned earlier, I mainly detect straight gardenia blossom. It’s a beautiful and modern take on it. I have never been to Florence unfortunately, not sure perhaps gardenias are blooming right among the cobblestone streets in the charming ceramic containers. Other than that, that’s the only reference to Florence my mind could conjure. Perhaps some pretty curly haired girls with gardenias dressed in colorful outfits are being serenaded. Again, I am only trying to imagine why Florence? Why gardenias? Or is it a girl named Florence? Gardenias of course are just as romantic and magical as a flower could be, so why not? The bottle is a typical Tocca perfume one. Charming, but the same for all the other perfumes they create. If you love gardenia, you would like this perfume most likely. Although to my taste, it lacked complexity. The rest of the notes in the description sounded so lovely. Maybe I just wasn’t able to pick them up.
