If gardenia is your flower, Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia has a much stronger, purer gardenia fragrance. This one has a bit of woodiness that takes the brightness off the gardenia. I get lots of compliments on the Private Collection fragrance, but this one didn't seem to last and didn't seem special.
Fragrance is my only real indulgence and I own hundreds. I am difficult to impress though and out of the hundreds I probably wear 10 on a regular basis. I ordered this blind, based on Estee Lauder's reputation and the description of the fragrance. I was not disappointed It is truly a work of art.! It smells like gardenias after a rainfall at the beach. It is a beautiful scent and yet different enough to stand out. I have been wearing it about 3-4 hours now and still keep smelling my wrist. Good job Aerin! I can't wait to try the Amber Musk (after my wallet recovers from Xmas :-)
