Truth be told, I've almost always been impressed with Pacifica. They are extremely affordable, deliver their promise, and smell surprisingly balanced. For something that can be bought at Whole Foods or Target, their fragrances often can rival many similar scents that charge nearly ten times the price. Tahitian Gardenia is no exception: its refreshing, breezy, tropical quality opens with citrus and aromatics, ushering in an agreeable gardenia accord. It's neither sweet nor sharp and hits the spot.

Smells like summer! This is a fun, sunny, lightly green & mostly "white flowers" fragrance. I enjoy it more that I thought I would as white flowers tend to bore me. Tahitian Gardenia never gets too prim or soapy, and is not sweet. It does have a very brief green-sap gardenia presence at the opening with some very light citrus - probably bergamot, maybe a dash of petitgrain, but it mostly burns down do a nice, linear, neutral jasmine - green - soft orange blossom thing with just a bit of LOTV. The drydown gets a bit of that generic fragrance musk, but overall it keeps its summery white flowers aroma for a long time. It is very similar to the Badgley Mischka Fleurs de Nuit and also the Calypso Christianne Celle Chevrefuille, both of which have a little more presence and complexity. The price is pretty unbeatable at $26 a bottle or less - a cheap and fun splurge. The solid perfume and body butter smell good too.
