Pre-Date Ritual: Carol's Daughter Gardenia

From Chanel's now-discontinued Gardenia to cult favorites Kai and Child, I'm a white flower aficionado of sorts. Yet of all the white flower-based products and fragrances I've tested, none have earned a place in my permanent rotation. Until the addition of Carol's Daughter's new Gardenia

A trio of products - Body Cleansing Gel, Dry Oil Mist, and Body Lotion - are infused with the lightest and sexiest gardenia yet. Gone is the headiness and headache-y-ness of many gardenia fragrances - here, it's replaced with an impossible freshness, thanks to inclusion of bright Neroli and sexy, sexy, sexy White Musk, Vanilla and Sandalwood at the base.

Carol's Daughter's Gardenia (particularly in the Dry Oil Mist formulation) has become my MUST pre-date ritual. Skin is left subtly scented and eminently touchable - thank you, Ms. Lisa Price.
