The Story: Tahitian Gardenia or Tiare is the symbol of Tahitian culture and its people. Tiare is derived from “tiara” hinting at its royal history. In ancient Polynesian mythology, the god Atea would offer the tiare to mortal men as a gesture of peace. Because of its connection to the gods, Tahitian Gardenia was reserved for the elite, to be owned and harvested only by royalty. The chief’s oldest daughter would wear a crown of tiare to represent her purity. Today the tiare is a symbol of harmony, worn behind an ear or entwined into leis.
