If You Love KKW Crystal Gardenia, You'll Love These Fragrances

Floral fragrances aren't for everyone. With their bold notes and abundant bouquets (no pun intended), they can feel a bit brash or even old-fashioned to some wearers. However, there's one floral scent that exhibits quite different qualities—it's warm, exotic, earthy, and downright intoxicating—gardenia. With its satisfyingly sultry take on florals and its ability to wear well both during the day and night, gardenia has become a mainstay in the world of perfumes. When Kim Kardashian West released her KKW Fragrance in Crystal Gardenia, she created not one but three takes on the light floral. Even Byrdie's editorial director, Faith Xue (who only wears niche fragrances), was so taken with the scent that the crystal-shaped bottle has earned a spot in her perfume collection. If you too are a lover of KKW Crystal Gardenia or you simply want to open your senses to a new summery scent, here are some of our favorite gardenia perfumes to try.
