Twinkling in the moonlight

The humidity is rising in Auckland, the days are long and sunny and summer is most definitley in the air. I was presented two perfect gardenias from a friend who had just clipped them from her garden. Heaven....I quickly popped them into a favourite vase and have had them next to my bed ever since. It is just amazing how the fragrance can so quickly permeate the air. You feel transcended. I have gardenias growing in my garden at the moment. I always hesitate to touch them because they are so beautiful to look at in the evening. Even from my window at night I can see them twinkling in the moonlight. It is a welcoming sight...

It is hard to duplicate the fragrance but I think Jo Malone gets pretty close with her Vintage Gardenia Cologne.  A nice touch on those cold winter days as well when you are longing for these creamy white flowers.
