Cruel Gardenia belongs to Guerlain's Exclusive Collections, a range of fragrances for aficionados of rare scents, those who appreciate noble raw materials and refinement down to the last detail.
The encounter with this fragrance is a cruel one, a trap that no one sees coming. This sun-drenched gardenia with its cottony aura approaches softly, then stirs our senses and haunts our thoughts. Neither heady nor opulent, but simply super-concentrated in white musks, it captivates us with its dangerous sensuality. Incredibly feminine, it leaves an intense and diabolically exhilarating aura in its wake that goes straight to the heart with its tenderness and omnipresence.
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. An elegant wooden cap adds the finishing touch to this beautiful piece. The bottle nestles in an amethyst-colored faux-leather case, which may be transformed into a jewelry box as you wish.
