Today's community question:

"Any idea of where to get some of the original {Kate Spade Eau de Parfum} or anything which smells similar? Thank you in advance!!!"


Regarding the first part of your question, I was going to tell you to check online at such and such place, but then I had to do a double-take when I saw that Kate Spade EDP is now listed in the $300-$400 range on various well-known sites...

Regarding the second part of your question, to me, Kate Spade EDP is a composition which aims to be a true gardenia perfume. To distinguish it from others, it has a slight green edge and it's lush but still light-bodied.

Off the top of my head, I'd recommed as kindred spirits:

Crazylibellule & The Poppies Pompom Gardenia, which is simply one of the best, if not the best gardenia soliflore I've experienced of late. It comes in stick form and is dirt cheap.

Estée Lauder Tuberose Gardenia {see review} is also similar to what you are looking for, but more elegant, lady-like and polished in feel, more restrained. It is also less of a pure gardenia fragrance.

Mariah Carey Forever {see review} might also satiate your taste for a Southern-gal kind of gardenia soliflore.

We can also all make a prayer for Yves Rocher to bring back their Gardenia perfume, which is a stellar gardenia soliflore, albeit fuller bodied than Kate Spade EDP.

All the Best,
