Jovan Island Gardenia Perfume by Jovan, Jovan Island Gardenia, released in 1982, transports you to an exotic garden on a tropical island. The sunny scents of coconut and peach make up the top notes. The heart notes are a fresh floral blend of tuberose, jasmine and especially gardenia. Vanilla and civet comprise the buttery base notes, adding a sweet creaminess that reminds you of drinking a pina colada on a beautiful beach. Spritz on this fragrance, close your eyes and imagine the susurrus of palms swaying in the breeze, and the whisper of turquoise waves breaking on the white sand.
