Gardenia Tahitensis - TIARÉ FLOWER


Tahitensis is one of the most famous gardenias. Native to Polynesia and belonging to the Rubiaceae family, its delightfully fragrant flower is called the tiaré. It is part of the composition of monoï, a recipe of ancient beauty ‘Mahohi’ obtained by macerating the flower buds in Copra oil. The bush produces flowers of an intense white color that contrasts with the green of its leaves. Its fragrance, floral and very sweet, reminds of the accents of tuberose.

You will like it if ... you have tired of tuberose and you want to change your fragrance or if you would like to know what the paintings of Gauguin's Polynesian period smell like.

  • To avoid black smoke, keep the wick cut to 6 millimeters at all times. The wick can be placed gently while the wax is still melted.
  • Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
  • Once there are only 6 millimeters of wax, blow out the candle and allow it to cool completely before disposing of it safely.
