Plume Natural Perfumery General Catalog Solid Perfume (Available)
VANILLA TUBEROSE is an artisan-crafted perfume made from 100% natural, botanical essences and blended in a base of enriching jojoba oil and golden beeswax. This sultry fragrance features Vanilla and Oakmoss along with the heady fragrance of Tuberose blossom.
Tuberose is an intoxicating flower with a sensual, earthy odor. The Victorians, who famously ascribed symbolic meanings to flowers, deemed tuberose blossoms to be a dangerous pleasure and associated them with "voluptuousness." I wanted to create fragrance inspired by this notion of voluptuous beauty, drawing on the alluring, forbidden qualities of the tuberose.
In small amounts, Tuberose is hypnotic and beguiling, particularly when blended with the warm sweetness of vanilla and the sultry earthiness of Oakmoss (I use only IFRA-compliant Oakmoss). The top notes of tart Bergamot and fresh Rosewood bring brightness to the overall blend. When a close friend of mine smelled this fragrance for the first time, she exclaimed: "It smells like flowers having sex!" I could not have said it any better.
