Gardenia Tiare Absolute has retained a whisper of her gardenia sister deep within her petal pockets. Inspired by the subtle floral memory of sweet gardenia, Tiare takes flight, bounding through the Tahitian rainforest collecting sweet nectar and bursts of orange blossoms. She ignites and alights in a Polynesian dream of syrupy sweetness, dancing through patches of jasmine and rolling in coconut-sandalwood Gauguin gardens.

 

Unlike the strong, sometimes overpowering aroma of naturally-growing gardenia, this South Seas variety offers a perfectly-balanced bouquet of lush, intoxicating buttery florals. Tahitian gardenia is particularly creamy and dreamy, and our distiller has somehow magically managed to ensure the pure Tahitian essence is retained during distillation, never losing the intoxicating scent of the tropical flower.

 

In Tahiti, Tiare flowers have been enjoyed by submerging petals into pure virgin coconut oil up to 12 times over a series of several days, infusing the oil with the flower’s enchanting properties and fantastic fragrance. Tiare Absolute has been used by indigenous people throughout Polynesia to relax, improve the appearance of the skin, moisturize the hair, and perfume the petals of the body. Thanks to its high levels of methyl salicylate, Tiare is also said to protect the skin’s lipid levels, prevent moisture loss, and firm sagging skin.

 

“By the wash-pool in the centre of the square are girls and women in their brightest and best, men from the mountains and lads from the country, fern and flower wreaths around their hats, with garlands of the Tahitian gardenia, “Tiare Tahiti” so sweet, pure, and white, and scenting for yards the balmy atmosphere.” ~ The Romance of the South Seas, Clement Lindley Wragge

 

“This flower has an incomparable scent: it blooms in the evening and lasts several days without fading. Tahitians put it behind the ear after bathing, collecting it in the bud, and carefully wrapping it in leaves to keep its freshness and smell for several days. The flower is soaked in coconut oil to make ‘monoi’ which is used to soften skin, dress the hair, and is also used as a panacea.” ~ Chabouts Short Flora of Tahiti

 

“She has a little white scented flower for me, wrapped for shelter from the rude world in a sheath of coiled green leaf. It smells like jasmine, fresh and virginal; it is shaped like a lotus. It is the tiare maohi, or native single gardenia, the flower par Eminence of the island; but I had not yet learnt its name.”~Tahiti, George Calderon
