The delicate white Tuberose is native to Central America. In Victorian England, Tuberose symbolised voluptuousness and dangerous desires. The fragrance of the pretty, white flower is sensual and heady. Although a slight greenness is present, Tuberose is very sweet and warm. Its fragrance makes it a perfect note to include in Floral Oriental perfumes.
As well as being a vital part of the fragrance world, Tuberose is also used for its healing properties, particularly for anti-inflammatory purposes. Its beauty has inspired many myths and in Ayurvedic tradition, the stunning flower is known to inspire creativity, while in India its fragrance is believed to be an aphrodisiac.
Tuberose is most common in women’s fragrances for example, Mariah Carey’s fragrance, Forever. Wrap yourself in a world of glamour and opulence with the darling diva’s white flower fragrance. Or, you can feel like a modern princess with one spritz of Vera Wang's mouth-watering Floral Oriental fragrance, Princess. A beautiful heart of Tuberose, Tiare flower, Chocolate and Guava will make those around you weak at the knees.
The aroma of Tuberose is beautifully feminine and rich. Even the slightest whisper of Tuberose in a ladies fragrance exudes immediate elegance.
