A Gardenia Perfume That Doesn’t Smell Granny-ish

Arquiste's Boutonnière No. 7 was inspired by a crew of imaginary boutonniere-wearing men; you know, the dapper, tuxedo-sporting types about whom you can imagine getting into their neck space and taking a deep whiff of their lapel flowers mixed with the zingier notes of their after-shave. Inside the rounded glass bottle is a blend of lavender, gardenia, and jasmine that's cut with zesty citrus notes of bergamot and vetiver. All of Arquiste's fragrances are unisex, so it's nice for women, but perhaps squirt it on a man and re-create the fantasy. Tux optional.
