What are Gardenias?
Gardenias are evergreen plants that are local to Southeast Asia. It looks like a gorgeous shrub that has shiny leaves and amazing white flowers with cute little oval fruits. The petals of the gardenia smell absolutely amazing. They’re a long-blooming plant, scenting all of our summer to early fall memories.
You will be surprised by how many different varieties there are of gardenias. There are over 200. How crazy is that? The variety of most popular gardenias is known as the "Common Gardenia" or "Cape Jasmine."
What Do Gardenias Smell Like?
Gardenia is a unique, distinctive, strong floral scent punctuated by a slight sweetness with green and creamy undertones. If you have gardenias in your garden, the following may describe how you remember the scent:
- Richly floral
- Spicy and zesty with green earthy undertones
- Freshly sweet but with a slightly creamy and peachiness added to it.
It is a beautiful floral, woody, and earthy combo.
It’s hard to describe this timeless scent, but so many of us long for it. That’s why we made a gardenia candle, to bring the magic of gardenias indoors, any time of the year.
Our Gardenia Candle Tells a Story

The summer air comes alive with the laughter of friends and family, white wine being poured, white oak, and flowers. Doesn't that just smell like a dream in a candle? Trust us, this gardenia candle will be love at first sniff.

Our gardenia candle is very fragrant, rich, and enchanting. Lighting this candle will transport you to a world filled with laughter, flowing white wine, and a bouquet of flowers on a beautiful summer's day. It’s our take on an overflowing floral bouquet candle – while, yes, gardenia is the shining star of this candle, it’s accompanied by other shimmering floral co-stars.

Top notes: Gardenia, Lemon Peels, and Palm - An amazing mixture of florals with added sweetness and freshness.
Heart notes: Jasmine, Rose, Green Floral, and Oak - The aroma of floral sweetness combined with a powerful earthy scent.
Base notes: Patchouli and Roasted Vanilla - A rich and deep aroma blended with sweet, warm nuttiness.
How We Created This Custom Fragrance
There's a quiet sophistication about the scent profile of this gardenia candle, making it tough to explain. (You just have to smell it for yourself!)
When you first light it, you smell the gardenia and jasmine, standing proud at the doorway of this fragrance. Then comes the bright lemon peels and green leaves, lifting the fragrance. Finally, the oakwood and roasted vanilla ground the scent.
The lingering aroma (and boy, does it linger) is deep, floral, and woody.
Some gardenia candles lack complexity, but we discovered that creating the perfect fragrance is much like cooking, where you need multiple levels of flavor to balance a dish. In our custom gardenia candle, we use lemon peels, tuberose, jasmine, oak, and patchouli to achieve that perfect balance. Our goal was to develop an immersive olfactory experience. When you burn the Garden Party for the first time, do let us know if we hit the mark.
