Notes from the Playground:
You definitely need to try Tubereuse Absolue on your skin to fully appreciate this fragrance's sheer beauty! Tuberose has a beautiful creamy character, similar to jasmine and gardenia, but it is a lot sexier, deeper and hedonistic. Tubereuse Absolue is no exception; the beautiful white flower is present, but never overwhelming so, as fresh notes of jasmine and gardenia along with a touch of green vetiver keep "la belle fills sans merci" in check and enhance her beauty even further. This is a must-have for all devotees of Tuberose.
