Total Tuberose Indulgence
By Marci Robin |
Those closest to me-whether emotionally or standing near enough to smell me-know how much I love tuberose. It is my scent soulmate, with which I fell in love at first whiff in my early 20s. Since then, it has been my mission to find and collect every tuberose-based perfume on the planet.
My latest find is truly a tuberose overachiever. Beyond Love by Kilian's perfumer, Calice Becker, lists eight notes in its recipe: coconut accord, Egyptian jasmine absolute, amber accord, tonkin musk-and then four incarnations of tuberose. It's as if Ms. Becker was making a gift just for me!
Despite being a fanatic of the flower's fragrance, I didn't even know there could be four ways to tap tuberose. But Beyond Love has captured tuberose concrete, tuberose absolute, green tuberose accord, and tuberose petals accord in varying measurements.
The result is a sumptuous synergy that inspires lazy nights getting close with someone you love-and hopefully they love tuberose, too, because they're going to get a nose-full of it!
