Gigi by Jardins d’Écrivains

The perfume references the era when you could say with your ostrich feathers fan:

We are being watched (twirling the fan in the left hand); or
We will be friends (dropping the fan) and so on.

It’s a scent the heroine of the Colette’s novel: Gigi could have worn. An ultra-feminine floral formula with a big tuberouse heart, generously vulgar at first impression. But just like Gigi followed her heart instead of becoming a professional courtesan, the perfume is much more complex and sophisticated than it appears on first sniff.  It’s the whole bouquet of white floral notes: neroli, orange blossom, jasmine and soft delicate woods. 

The Sniff on Jardins d'Ecrivains: "Here at The Sniff we are increasingly of the opinion that ‘garden’ should be a category of scent; more than just florals, not just green in tone, these scents transport the wearer to another time and space. Gigi by Jardins d’Ecrivains is a lovely example of a garden scent that is easy to wear and will delight in long winter months." Read full review.
