Monotheme White Gardenia Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance – Monotheme White Gardenia Eau de Toilette. I’m a fan of exotic gardenia fragrances (the ones without coconut), so when I found this one, I thought I should give it a try.

This fragrance has tangerine and bergamot as top notes, gardenia as its heart note, and woods and musk as base notes. Alrighty! Onto the review!

Well, this fragrance is a huge disappointment. I knew this wouldn’t be a tropical fragrance, but I was still was hoping for a dense, creamy gardenia fragrance. Instead I got a transparent (yet strangely dusty) and soapy fragrance that’s pretty much a mix of the most random floral notes that have nothing to do with gardenias.

The fragrance smells cheaply done and quite dated, and the only thing that’s missing for it to be a total disaster is aldehydes – the synthetic stuff that many 1980s fragrance nightmares are made of. Although to be fair, the 80s had plenty of amazing perfumes which would mop the floor with a lot of what you can find in department stores now…

Anyhoo, White Gardenia is not a fragrance I can see myself wearing. I’ll give it to the first person at work who wants it. If you’re interested, Monotheme White Gardenia Eau de Toilette is available as 100ml. I paid £18 (M&S).
