"If it were cool to walk around with gardenia duct-taped to each nostril I would so that I could smell that scent all day long. I could smell that odor of horniness while I went about my business. I'm serious about gardenias. When I've been with women who wear perfume that has a trace of gardenia, I end up spraying it on myself.
The Doctor doesn't believe in gender-specific scents, and neither should you. You are allowed to smell like a flower if you are a man, don't worry. Citrus smells are good too, my students, fresh and clean. If something smells like you can eat it, I'm down. Chocolate, fruit, certain spices - it's all good."(1)
"Tommy Lee, the Mötley Crüe drummer, has been wearing Kai Perfume Oil, a women’s perfume that smells like gardenias, for a decade."(2)
"I love the scent of gardenia and looked forever to find the right perfume but couldn't find one that captured the fruity essence of the flower," Lee says. "So when a friend turned me on to Kai I flipped the f--k out. I like smelling like a gardenia. And trust me, girls don't seem to have a problem with it either."(3)
