About the Product

Jovan Island Gardenia is a light and sophisticated floral fragrance for women. The fragrance was first launched by Jovan in 1982 and has remained a classic, feminine perfume for decades. Delicate and wild at the same time, this fragrance was inspired by the beauty of nature. The simple fragrance of a dew drenched soft gardenia warmed by the sun.

Fragrance Family:

Floral

Scent Type:

Floral, green, fresh, earthy

Notes:

As the name of this fragrance suggests, gardenia shines through in the blend of subtlely sweet top notes including mandarin, rose, ylang-ylang, coconut, green apple and peach. The middle notes contain jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, marigold, mimosa, orange blossom and tuberose. The scent then dries down to reveal a vibrant, creamy blend of cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, warm musk and vanilla.

Suggested Use

For long-lasting fragrance that you can carry throughout the day and to minimize the need for reapplying, focus on your pulse points behind your ears, at the base of your neck and on your wrists as well as warmer areas of the body, such as behind the knees and inside the elbow. These are the best places to apply your fragrance since the scent intensifies by the warmth of your body.

The tropics in a bottle

On me this fragrance has a toasted coconut, buttery note to it that saves it from being just a run of the mill floral. Sillage is low to moderate, so you can wear this to work without annoying your co-workers, however longevity for a cologne is pretty fantastic. I find that I can still smell it

after 6 hours, and if I want it to last even longer, I layer it with Jovan Musk for Women. When I do that, it lasts 10-12 hours. The only downside to this fragrance is that it smells just the tiniest bit rough. By this I mean, it's not particularly well blended, and you can tell it's not an expensive fragrance. Nonetheless it's a lovely everyday choice particularly as a winter pick up. It's a bit too much in really hot, humid weather.

Smells like hairspray on me

Luckily, FragranceX has a small sample size of this one, so you can "try before you buy!" Apparently, Jovan Jungle Gardenia turns into a shimmering cloud of sensuality on many people -- but on me, it smells like hairspray. So please stock more sample sizes, FragranceX! It will definitely make your

Not the scent for me, for sure

Was so looking forward to it after reading other people's reviews. However, I found the scent overpowering and really not to my liking. I gave it away to my house helper. I was hoping for a light floral hint of a perfume, not a perfume that offends my nose with its heaviness.

Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend to a friend.

What a good buy this fragrance is.

I find this perfume to be comforting. I don't use too much or it can be cloying until it settles but just a little spritz will do. It keeps me company in a nice soft way and you just cannot beat the price.

Pretty gardenia smell

Lovely gardenia smell. Longevity is about 2 hours on me. Luckily, the bottle is slim and compact and carried easily in the purse. For the price, I can spritz it every 2 hours all day long. I find it easier on the nose than say, Elizabeth Taylor's Gardenia and not as cloying as Michael Kors signature fragrance. I think that if you love gardenia and tuberose, you will be very surprised and happy with Jovan's Island Gardenia for everyday use. Save the expensive stuff for special times :)

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.
