Some tuberose reviews


Diptyque, Do Son EDP: clearly recognisable tuberose, mellowed out a bit by soft muskiness. The tuberose is there but it doesn’t really pop. The whole thing is pretty but fleeting and SO faint. It’s hard to even write anything about it because it’s so barely-there. Compared it with another Diptyque white floral (Oléne) which also didn’t last that long but had much more presence and character while it did.

Some tuberose reviews




Review



Diptyque, Do Son EDP: clearly recognisable tuberose, mellowed out a bit by soft muskiness. The tuberose is there but it doesn’t really pop. The whole thing is pretty but fleeting and SO faint. It’s hard to even write anything about it because it’s so barely-there. Compared it with another Diptyque white floral (Oléne) which also didn’t last that long but had much more presence and character while it did.

L’Artisan Parfumeur, Nuit de Tubereuse: very spicy and very tuberose. The pepper, cloves, and tuberose are all equally noticeable to me, and blend beautifully. The tuberose is right in the middle between sweet and green, and has a slight plastic-like vibe to me which I really like here. I don’t get the fruity notes, and the fragrance as a whole isn’t sweet for me, it’s just floral and spicy, a wonderful combination. Unique and perfect for all seasons.

Matière Première, French Flower: wow. Big. This smells the most like the tuberose I managed to grow in my garden. Sweet, intoxicating, creamy. The pear note adds a touch of extra sweetness to the composition, but mostly it amplifies the floral sweetness naturally present in the tuberose. Ginger adds a lovely prickle. Incredible performance. A bit too strong actually, especially considering it’s kind of one-dimensional.

Naomi Goodsir, Nuit de Bakélite: also wow. Funky but awesome. A real artwork. Tuberose is a minor player here, the other prominent notes are Angelica, wormwood, leather, something earthy like Orris, and something smoky or resinous. It’s both very green (reminds me of shady vegetation on a hot day) and very smoky. The notes present such a unique contrast, it takes a while to get used to, but somehow it really works and comes together. This challenging contrast is there for the first hour or so, then everything blends together more, and the dry down is plain delicious and lasts for a long time. Tuberose peaks through the composition regularly, but it’s faint and blends in with the green notes.

Robert Piguet, Fracas: I get a strong, fresh tuberose when I first spray this, and then it’s a huge, very blended mixture of flowers, where tuberose peaks through every now and then. After 90 minutes or so it’s mostly spicy tuberose again. It’s lush, very perfumey, with a great balance between warmth and greenness (I can sort of detect the hyacinth note). Coriander adds a nice spiciness. I like it a lot and performance is good, but my contemporary sample is definitely not the sillage monster Fracas is reputed to be.

One general note: white flowers, including tuberose, never smell dirty to me and I only have a fairly abstract understanding of what people mean by “indolic”, so I can’t comment on those potential aspects of these perfumes.
