Gardenia -- Mother had Daddy plant gardenias under all the bedroom windows in Macon. Back then, we didn't have air conditioning and humid summers were miserable. We had burglar bars on all the first story windows so we could leave the windows wide open at night, and an attic fan to draw cool night air -- and the scent of gardenias -- through the house. I still adore them.
ROSA RUGOSA, €55.00 The dry, cold, almost astringent-like scent of these wild rose bushes which grow against the wind on the Atlantic coast. The reconstitution of the fragrance of these ancestral roses was developed by Carlos Benaïm “au nez”, just by using his nose, much like how an artist would design an object.
