Coming Soon: Gardenia Enfleurage by Cultivar
With 300-500 new gardenia flowers opening each day in my gardens, I'm looking at approximately 40,000 blossoms contributing to enfleurage this season. I have already surpassed previous years' product volume and it's only the beginning of July. Last week I set fresh pommade and designated chassis by cultivar. Gardenia jasminoides bears such aromatic range that this flower deserves more than a full spectrum enfleurage, which itself is deep and glorious. Some varieties are heavy with civet; many breeds are lush and wet smelling; some have notes of poplar and propolis; while others carry whiffs of mango terpenes. Enfleurage by cultivar slices more finely the specificity of floral aura, an endeavor I hope will enrich the olfactory catalog I am building with Wild Veil. Listed are several of my Gardenia jasminoides enfleurage by cultivar. All flowers grown in the Wild Veil Perfume gardens by me.
