An interesting gardenia post

Anya from the Natural Perfumer’s Guild and Anya’s Garden Natural Perfumes just posted about the various new gardenia extract products that are being developed — it’s an interesting post and has some beautiful photos that will help you learn the difference between the various types of gardenia.

I had posted a while ago about one of these natural gardenia products but it’s great to know other options are on the way!

    Hi Laurie:

    Thanks for catching my blog, I was long overdue in writing about the new gardenias from tahiti and china.

    I was the first person to get the gardenia enfleurage butter from Trygve, and wrote about it way back then. It is gorgeous, isn’t it?

    However, I think the price is prohibitive, and thus I am very excited by the new entry into the market from China, and of course, I encourage everyone to try to make their own. Flower markets can often order ‘seconds’, aka misshapen gardenias at wholesale at a good price.

    Hi Anya,

    Yes, I found the price point of the Enfleurage product prohibitive too, so I was excited to see your post. I’d love to try the product from China; I’ll look into it.

    That’s a great idea to check with a flower market. I’ve tried to grow gardenias here and they just don’t seem happy in our dry summer heat, but maybe I need to experiment with other varieties. SF has a big flower market so that’s an interesting idea. It’d be fun to try to make some. 🙂

    Thanks again for the informative post (and beautiful photos) and thanks for your additional comments here!
