Cruel Gardénia doesn't concern itself with polite flirtation: it immediately pierces the heart and burns itself into the captive's mind like a beautiful obsession. The scent creates an eternal loop like the memory of a lover's last kiss, replaying the taste, warmth and passion over and over to the point of exquisite pain. It's so cruel; it's kind. This bold fragrance stuns with diabolical grace. Gardenia is brilliantly embraced with the sweet essence of rose and neroli,and haunted by sensuous notes of vanilla and sandalwood.
