Sotto la Luna Tuberose


From “TUBEROSE under the moon is an invitation to revisit this white flower and rethink tuberose: brilliantly different – peppery green and beguiling. The natural rendering of the queen of the night’s airy freshness sets this tuberose apart…”

Sotto la Luna Tuberose is definitely different, and so beautiful. Peppery, green with galbanum and geranium, softly spiced with cinnamon and clove, the tuberose note rises like a strong young goddess from the indigo-blue glass bottle. Almost immediately, the rich Tauerade accord begins to warm and sweeten the tuberose, and already I’m falling in love with Andy’s tuberose vision.

Creamy but fresh and natural, the tuberose blends with heady jasmine, rose, and sweet ylang-ylang into the floral heart, the green galbanum accord weaving around and through the rich white florals, grounding the indolics so that the suffocating heaviness so typical of tuberose fragrances never develops. The  tuberose note continues as patchouli and ambergris base notes wrap the white floral beauty, wafting it through the dry-down in layers of earthy richness.

Sotto la Luna is a green tuberose, a concept that was explored by Bertrand Duchaufour in L’Artisan’s Nuit de Tubereuse. But Andy Tauer’s version is different, much more a soliflore than the hot/cold Nuit de Tubereuse which includes mango, berries, and wood notes. Sotto la Luna Tuberose is tuberose from top to bottom, starting green and peppery, ending with the  unmistakable sweet scent of the white blooms that we all know and love (or hate), very feminine.

But the magic ingredient is Andy Tauer, and the power of his Tauerade accord which gives Sotto la Luna depth and richness right from the top. Green – yes. White flower – yes. Rich complex different wearable beguiling artistic – yes. I love it.
