While on a trip to Kyoto in Japan, Annick Goutal was overwhelmed by the heady scent of a gardenia flower.
She was there during the rainy season when the damp exhales all its plant smells.
The scent of gardenias in bloom was everywhere: in gardens, along the edge of roads, at the entrance of temples.
Annick picked a flower and decided to capture its subtle, rich and mysterious scent.
