The smell of Gardenia is sweet, it is powerful, so you have to be very careful how much you spray. The design of the bottle and cap is lovable.

I got to get a birthday gift for my lady. I never knew there was so much information on perfumes. I did not know there are different perfumes for day and night wear. Good information I see I have a lot to learn.
