Haunting. I have a sample and it sits on a chest in my bathroom, closed. I smell it every time I walk into the room. It's so potent...and beautiful, rich beyond expectations. It's a thick scent, nothing diminutive about it. It's there now, later, and maybe tomorrow. It's heady. I can't get enough of it. The gardenia could be coconut, it often reminds me of that but I see the white flower here too.

Seductive and elusive fragrance. It changes every time I wear it - 90% of the time it's LOVE and I can't stop sniffing, 10% of the time I need to air myself out and try again with something else.

Don't love it. Difficult to hate it. Too subtle for me. Disappeared to nothing very quickly.

This is very bad on me. Smells like a gardenia when it's dying in a hot climate-sickly sweet. Something in the background smells nice, but the sweetness never gives it a chance.

I'm really not sure about this one. Wet it has a cloying, overpowering scent that I really dislike. On my skin the mushroom is a dark, fungusy, earthy smell which sounds awful, but is actually quite complex and interesting. I'm just not sure it's for me. The dry down is absolutely lovely though. A very earthy, soft floral. I find I don't reach for it that often though because I can't quite put myself through the opening notes for an hour to get to the dry down.

I wanted to pass on this parfum because of the comments because they are just so torn in appreciation. So, I decided to try it because I am one that can push against the crowd. And, that is exactly what this perfume does, it pushes you in a direction of "Do I like this? I think I like this? I could really, really like this!" First spray reminds me of of tuscan clay pot. A few minutes later, there is a fresh, fully bloomed gardenia in that said pot. After dry down, feels like I have been occupied in the garden for the entire day... and that's a smell I could get used to.

Sotto La Luna Gardenia is an absolute masterpiece on me. I am just enchanted by the gorgeously rendered aroma exuding from my skin. The gardenia is velvety, yet deep in a whole new way. This isn't your typical tuberose-laden "gardenia" interpretation; this is a nuanced, heavy, creamy blossom with all the right accents. There are wispy hints of delicate spice, warm vanilla, golden resins, and earthy greenery - all just perfectly balanced, whispering counterparts to the magnificent gardenia bouquet. It's really perfect, and I fall harder in love each time I wear it. Spellbinding.

This is one you really need to try yourself, because you'll either love it or hate it and thankfully, I love it! It is a masterpiece of a fragrance and not for everyone.

Tauer makes interesting things and I like gardenia, so I was excited about this one. Until I opened the sample. Truly the most replusive fragrance I have every smelled. Musty, plastic, rotted, stale, chemical and all in large quantities. Like a hothouse gardenia several days old, filmed by jet fuel, stem wrapped in fraying florist tape, floating in a bowl of warm, cloudy water with a dead fly floating in it. Several friends asked me, throughout the day and without prompting, what I was wearing because it was the worst perfume they'd ever smelled. I had to agree.

I got a sample and just put in an order: it is a warm scent, probably not for the sporty type. It is elegant, heady, and strong. Lots of gardenia. Opened well. Love it. Could be hard to wear in a closed office.

huh dis is an interesting one . 1st thing i thought when i smelled this even before applying : nag champa . to me this smells alot like nag champa incense . it also possesses many qualities that i smell in a gardenia , plenty of shrooms , lil bit of waxy green , thick white floralness but the overall smell doesnt really come across as gardenia imo although there are times when ill catch a whiff of it and think oh theres the gardenia . it has an old fashioned old lady perfume vibe . i imagine ppl who like wearin l'heure bleu or some other old classic like dat would enjoy this . i dont often review stuff i dont like but in this case i think the perfumes interesting and im always checkin out new gardenias . the best gardenia fragrance ive smelled is dominique ropion's gardenia room spray for fred malle . i tried sprayin it on my clothes but the effect blows , just didnt smell rite . my 2nd fav is van cleefs gardenia petale . i find that to be the most wearable gardenia that still smells like one (there are other gardenia perfumes out there that are more realistic but lets be honest here , smelling like thick blue cheese is dumb as hale , as realistic to the flower as it may be) . anyway , tauers version isnt that gardenia-y to me and i still think it smells like nag champa above all else and thats kinda cool
