Gardenia by Marc Jacobs

This time Margeaux and I 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. Come along for a rollicking adventure through the opening notes with us, 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. Really you all are the A TEAM!

  • That was Marc Jacobs boyfriend at the time, and yes he was probably thinking. I finally get in the papers and nobody will even notice me next to this cerayzee mo fo.

  • Hey Farouche,
    Great call, it would be perfect bridal wear.
    My Valentine’s day was great, how was yours?

    OMG that was great! More videos please! I have tried Gardenia and I agree – like, not love.

  • minette says:

    you guys are wonderful! i love your honesty and your humor. your “red dress on the red carpet – IF you’ve just come out of a trailer” comment was a classic. love marc’s shoes and the dress, but not the white boxers.

    oh, and i always learn new vocabulary words with you – so keep these coming!


  • I’ve tried many of Marc Jacobs fragrances in the past, the first thing that comes to mind is Biscotti Splash. It’s a bit too sweet and light for my liking but I can understand why someone would like it.
    I’m looking forward to trying Gardenia. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

  • eldarwen22 says:

    Might have to try this even though it may be loaded with tuberose instead of gardenia. Tuberose and I don’t exactly get along because it’s creamy and suffocating even in the dead of winter.

    • Aha! I don’t understand the complaint eldarwen22 because I adore white flowers, especially tuberose but I do understand that wearing something you don’t like would be uncomfortable. Do try it though and come back tell us how it went.

    OMG! “the back of a freshly-waxed BALL BAG”? OMG. I can’t stop laughing! I have to take a meeting at the bank. If I start snickering……oh. my. gawdalicious! That is too funny! You are just WILD!

    And Margaux is adorable, as always!

    (hey – the guy standing with MJ looks a bit like Robert Downey, Jr – and he looks nervous, doesn’t he? LOL!)

  • Farouche says:

    I tried Marc Jacobs Gardenia just yesterday and totally agree with Ann’s comment above. It’s very nice, but since I already own VC&A Gardenia Petale and Trish McEvoy Gardenia Musk, I won’t be adding this one to my collection. I think it would be very nice on a bride, though. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  • Martha says:

    Oops, does that guy know that his shorts are showing? Hahahahahahaha! Well, he’s not short on nerve. I love gardenias and will need to investigate this perfume for myself. Happy Valentine’s Day, Portia and Margeaux!

  • Ann says:

    Howdy, Portia! Hope you’re having a grand time wherever you are! I really like the Marc Jacobs for a soft, everyday scent. Doesn’t knock my socks off either, but it’s a nice one to have for those days when you want something pretty but unoffensive. Plus it also comes in a lovely, sleek silver solid perfume compact which I’m longing for.

    • Yes Ann,
      I too have days where I just want to smell good with no effort required by my brain or nose, just drift on a pretty cloud of lovely.
      BTW I am now back from foreign parts and loving being home.
      I can hear you.

    Hi Portia! Have you smelt Uncle Serge’s Une Voix Noire, and if so can you tell me how that compares with this? UVN defnitely smells gardeniay and I rather like it …..
