Harvey Prince Imperial Gardenia

When someone gives us flowers (hint hint), we often find one well-chosen bloom even sweeter than a full bouquet. So it’'s no surprise we can’t stop sniffing this single-blossom fragrance from Harvey Prince: It showcases the pure aroma of gardenia, without layering in any additional scents to muddle things up——though we’'d never call a fragrance this alluring one note. Whether blooming in a garden or unfolding in a fragrance, the smell of gardenias is like that of a sultry summer evening: floral, warm, and sweet——with a bit of enticing darkness.

This smells like an old lady. Gardenia is a complex scent and I think very difficult to capture without smelling like Great Aunt Ester. Definitely do not feel good wearing this perfume.

Too strong for my tastes
Sampled

I am very picky about fragrances, so I did not like this one. Too strong and at the same time it faded quickly which was good for me but bad if you want a long lasting/all day fragrance.

Not a Flowery girl

I am not a huge fan of floral scents so I didn't really like this Harvey Prince Imperial Gardenia scent.

This was not for me
Sampled

I only give it one star because this is not really for me. I'm not a fan of super-flowery perfumes. It would be very nice for someone who loved gardenia. It is also a little overpowering for me.

Eh...

I'm not big on flowery scents but some of them do smell great. This one on the other hand just had too much of an over powering smell.

not really impressed
Purchased

I bought this because other reviews said it smelled like gardenias but really it smells like artificial flowers in my opinion. I should have returned it but I kept it hoping it would smell better but every time I spray it I get just as disappointed as the first time. I will keep searching until I find a perfume that actually smells like the real deal.

Not the scent I was hoping for
Purchased

I love gardenia, tried many perfumes with gardenia notes. This one had an overpowering smell to it, but it didn't really smell like gardenia to me. It was overly sweet and very, very strong. I really want to like it, and from the reviews some people do... It just isn't for me.

Must love Gardenia
Sampled

I just really didn't like this scent. I'm not big on floral scents. Gardenia is one of my least favorite floral scents. If you like Gardenia, you'll love this.

Not a fan

I did not like this product. The scent was too over powering and smelt like something was burning. Also, the sample that can in my box, was very difficult to spray. It took a lot of effort to get a small amount of spray out.

Did not like the smell
Sampled

I did not like the smell. It smelled like a garden. Also the smell of alcohol was very strong. I think it is not worth the purchase or even a sample.
