Launched in 2014, White Tubéreuse is part of the Historie De Fleurs Collection, along with its sister fragrance Love Rose, from French costume jewelry brand Réminiscence.
A beautiful, summer tuberose, it opens with a nose-tingling sparkle that introduces a note of sweet, floral ylang-ylang. The rich banana facets of ylang-ylang make the opening tropical and summery. The ylang-ylang leads to a heart of tuberose that’s creamy, fatty, fruity and fleshy. This is not a loud, diva tuberose in a too-short mini skirt and stiletto heels, but it’s not a tamed or muted tuberose either. It’s heady and erotic all right, but it’s tasteful in that very French way making it a tuberose for any age.
If you love tuberose, you’ll love this phase more when cinnamon gives it a warm hum. Tuberose and cinnamon? Oh, yeah. Sounds a bit odd, sounds a bit strange but whoever put these two together is a genius…oh, wait that would be Fabrice Pellegrin of Firmenich! Over time, the cinnamon fades, but the tuberose stays and settles on a woody/musky base and dries down to a creamy, smooth skin scent. And, being an EdP concentration, it lasts and lasts, keeping those summer memories alive.
White Tubéreuse has a carefree, easygoing attitude that's in line with the Réminiscence brand. It doesn’t evolve much, and it isn’t demanding. It’s just an olfactory expression of pleasure. And, while I associate it most with summer, it can be worn any time of year.
Notes: ylang-ylang, tuberose, cinnamon, moss, woods and musk.
