Nuit de Tubereuse

The Scoop
Bertrand Duchaufour is on a roll. With Penhaligon’s Amaranthine, he proved that his masterful style could extend to sensual florals. Now, he’s gone and tackled the most unmanageable diva of the perfumer’s palette, and come up with a totally novel, utterly seductive take on tuberose.

The eagerly expected Nuit de Tubéreuse turns down the classic, creamy-coconutty facets of the flower to focus on its more unusual facets. The top notes draw out the odd, rooty, snapped asparagus stalk aspects of tuberose absolute and set them off with vibrant green cardamom; mango drenched in pink pepper creates an almost incense-like effect – Duchaufour’s signature. The scent goes through a strangely compelling, freshly upturned earth phase before easing into a suave floral heart, where the tuberose is bolstered by orange blossom, ylang-ylang and rose, wrapped in the honeyed-tobacco facets of broom on a warm, musky, woody and balsamic base.

If you’re addicted to tuberose, you’ll be riveted by Bertrand Duchaufour’s totally original interpretation. If you’re tuberose-averse, you might very well be converted. And if you’re a man, you may have finally found a version of the note that can be worn unselfconsciously. But women needn’t worry: Nuit de Tubéreuse is still very much a heart-breaker.

A not entirely pleasant combination of tuberose and cardamom.
By Soupy Twist on 7/10/2013
I am from Hawaii, so I know what true tuberose smells like. This perfume...immaculate and very complex. I am impressed at how true to the essence of the flower Duchaufour was able to accomplish. I received this as a sample. So first off, this is how I would describe this perfume at first impression: picture yourself wearing a double stranded tuberose lei, dressed in a long, thin night gown, standing on the shores of the beach at dusk, awaiting a romantic rendezvous. It opens up to a much greener scent, as described to be the asparagus stalks of the flower, not my favorite, but I was willing to wait for more, as more did come. It took about 4 hours for the perfume to fully dry down on me, and suddenly at the fourth hour, it bloomed into this magical scent. The soft tuberose was there in its purety, but underneath it was all the elements of dirty, naughty, sexy, mysterious all captured together. Throughout the day I forgot I was wearing it, and then would catch little hints of something nice, something romantic and I couldn't quite put my finger on it, until I realized that I was smelling myself. It lasted for a little over 6 hours on me, but is still lingering when I smell my pulse points. This also has minimal sillage, so it's not at all intrusive, if applied correctly. This is real perfume, developed by a master's hand. I did not get any whiffs of chemical cheapness in it at all. If you love the smell of tuberose, you will love this.

I really like this smell. It lasts pretty long, I commute to work and I can still smell it by lunch.

There's a better story hiding within this bottle than in Seville a l'Aube, and the beauty is that as we don't know it, we can make it our own. Truly stunning! Not your typical tuberose or typical 'big white floral'. There's so much going on and so many facets to this fragrance that you must try it to see how you experience it. I love the bottle and colour of the jus too. It's all exactly right.

Not precisely a soliflore, this take on a tuberose has a smoky bite to it. The incense base is hard to miss-- it's what Duchaufour does best-- and there is both a sensuous fruitiness and a peppery bite to it. I think the fragrance is uniquely versatile in that it is appropriate for day or night, and all seasons. Lightly applied, I also find it more appropriate for work than the bombshells Fracas or Carnal Flower.

It took about a year, but I finally decided I couldn't stand this and gave away the bottle. The drydown gets bigger and sharper, very synthetic, until I can't smell anything else and I have a headache. The opening isn't bad.

I'm not a tuberose fanatic, but my friend is, so when we were in Paris I grabbed a sample of this for her to try, and she's obsessed. And even I have to agree, it's not the cloying tuberose that I've come to know and hate in some of the more popular commercial fragrances. I prefer spicy or green scents, more unisex than feminine, and if I were going to wear a floral, this one would be a real possibility, so I can only assume for someone who enjoys tuberose, this would make a great addition to your collection. That said, it does have some silage... so advise to exercise caution in offices and close quarters!

I bought this un-sniffed. It is definitely a complex and multi-faceted perfume. When I wear it, people ask, "what smells like incense?" I agree with all the reviewers below. It is both powdery, slightly musty, mango-y, and floral. It might be perfect for you, but it is too difficult a perfume for me. Sample first.
By Anonymous on 7/11/2011
Heavy, mucky, noisy and conspicuous perfume. I can imagine Sylvia Fine in series The Nanny saying that this is her favorite perfume. With Tuberose by Keiko Mecheri. Disgusting.
By Anonymous - from NY on 3/25/2011
I used to wear Fracas and this is really not like that at all. If I really concentrate, i can pick up on that common tuberose note, but, really, this is a sexier, richer, softer rendition of tuberose. I particularly appreciate its inter-season-ality. It's not so heavy as to be cumbersome in the heat, but it's spicy enough to seem cozy in the winter months.

Smelled like cheap candy on me. After the dry down, I asked BF for his opinion. He said I smelled old.
By Joules - from new york on 12/13/2010
Wow! What an amazing scent! Received this as a sample. For some reason, this scent is a little reminiscent of - Parfum D'Empire's: Eau De Gloire. There's that spicy-pleasant mentholated scent. Still debating whether to order this.
By D - Bon Vivant from California on 11/5/2010
I had to have a bottle the minute I smelled this wonderfull fragrances. And I am not just saying this because I adore almost every fragrance in the L'Artisan line. This is not your usual take on Tubereuse. IUt's very original and has lots of character and in no way at all does it smell cheap. It's a very sophisticated scent.
By Irena - from NY on 10/13/2010
Disgusting! It's sticky and smells cheap.
By Anonymous - Artist from NYC on 8/25/2010
Wow, this is THE fragrance! Adorable. Spicy tuberose, but yet not that spicy, and not that tuberose. It's definitely not a Fracas's tuberose, if somebody is searching for that kind of fragrance.
By Samantha on 7/24/2010
This perfume is the shizz. I wasn't sure about this one when I first tried it. Actually, I hated it. But every now and then a perfume just needs to "relax" in the bottle before it goes well onto my skin, so a couple months later I gave my sample another taste and holy cow: in the past few hours I've gone from, 'hey this isn't so bad after all' to 'this is full bottle worthy'. Totally reminds me of naughty times outdoors, rooty, dirty, fevered moments of little to no self-control. The exhibitionist in me demands I buy this, immediately. Will do.
By Jeni Li - artist from STL on 7/23/2010
This is a really intriguing scent. It's not what I think of when I think "tuberose," but that's OK! It's quite original, really. the tuberose mixes nicely with the dryer woods, and gives the tuberose (which i generally associate with big white florals or tropical floral scents) a new aspect. not sure I need a whole bottle, but i'm glad I got a sample to appreciate the creativity here.
By Laura - from Minneapolis on 7/16/2010
I LOVE this...perfect for any time of year. A very beautiful, alluring scent...I can easily detect the cardamom, clove, orange blossom and tuberose...so very lovely. Glad I ordered the large bottle!!
By Anonymous on 6/25/2010
Not exactly my taste. It was too overwhelmingly floral and somewhat powdery for me.
By Anonymous_ San Diego 2 NYC - Therapist from NYC on 6/24/2010
This is so incredibly awesome, it made my eyes roll back in my head. It is a lush, earthy floral that smells like sex in a bottle. I have already placed my order and can't wait to receive it!
