Gardenia by Marc Jacobs 2007 LIVE Video Sniff

Hey Ho Everyone,

Today has been so lovely, slept in, went to brunch with TSO Jin, did some grocery shopping for the next 2 weeks, caught up with Clayton from WhatMenShouldSmellLike for late lunch at AGNSW Members Lounge to find out about his sensational travels and Grasse Perfume Short Course and we  wafted some seriously fabulous frags down there, home for a disco nap, cooked dinner for Jin & I and now I get some computer time. EXCELLENT Saturday!! I hope you had some fun too.

Gardenia by Marc Jacobs

Margeaux and I have another mental video for you today. This time we are reviewing Marc Jacob’s Gardenia. Yet again, we are up late, have had a few boozy beverages and are completely full of shit. You must not take anything we say for the absolute truth. What you must do is come along for a rolicking adventure through the opening notes of a lovely Gardenia perfume. We have so much fun making these videos.

As always I need to do a THANK YOU shout out to my BFF Kath for her Video & Editing skills, Margeaux for being such a good sport, TSO Jin for making the video blog ready. You guys are so wonderful and I am blessed to have you all in my life. XXXOX

So for some reason I have become obsessed lately with that clean musk scent of a freshly waxed ballbag of someone who swims. It’s a scent I will always associate with clean, fresh and daring sexual adventures during my school days and then later at the gym. I know! Bad girl. So that smell holds for me MANY happy memories of my glorious youth, now a memory so sweet.

Fragrantica gives only these featured accords:
Middle: Honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine
Base: Ginger, musk and cedar.

I put those notes there so you can see what we are talking about and the photo below is referenced also.

Till tomorrow take care of yourself, please,

  1. Love our sniff films babes, can’t wait to do some more with you! You’re a bad bad girl as I ordered a heap of new smells to try out too 🙂


  2. There are some hilariously quotable gems in here Portia: “They’re getting my profile, it’s not my best angle” “I don’t get that… all I get is apples” “It is if you’ve just come out of a double-wide trailer” “Expensive Wal-Mart.” I had to watch it twice, I was laughing so hard the first time.


  3. Giggelygiggle…hi hi. You are both lovely and for the first three minutes quite enthusiastic, and then suddenly – “nah, this is merely blahabla, soooo not special at all”. Fab eyelashes as usual, great profile (yes) and Margeaux is georgeous. And now I saw that you are my hand gesture twin!


    • Hand gesture twin? Ann Sofie, what can you mean?
      we do love Gardenia and I will wear my sample till it’s dry but we were sad that it was merely good, no boundary pushing. Know what I mean. It’s a 3 star fragrance, falling towards 4,

  4. Ah, apologize. I thought ‘hand gesture twin’ would be easy to understand. Well, it was only a simple remark on the side, meaning we have a tendency to move our hands in the same way, nothing to bother about really. I am glad you love Gardenia although not being boundary pushing. As it obviously invoke the enchanting reminiscences of apples and newly waxed balls, it pushes something anyway – good taste maybe. So sorry for the misinterpretation of your heavy sighs and bland expressions in the end of the video. Silly me….


    • Ha Ha Ha! Ann-Sofie,
      Excellent! Yes, our good taste is DEFINITELY pushed on video nights. YAY! A hand waver. When we meet we can wave like crazy. There will be a video in a couple of days from one of our newer pop sensations Johnny Ruffo, his hands are the flappyest of all time.
