Histoires de Parfums has launched the Tuberose Trilogy:
French perfumery Histoires de Parfums is adding a tale dedicated to the legendary tuberose to their library of scent. Offering three interpretations of this unique and mysterious plant that blooms once per year at night, the Tuberose Trilogy evokes moods and emotions from ultra femme to vixen, giving you the option to choose the tuberose tome that best represents you.
First discovered in Mexico thousands of years ago, the tuberose is a flower of many faces, and its powerful fragrance is considered an aphrodisiac. It presents a noble challenge for any perfumer to bottle, yet has inspired many legendary fragrances through the ages. The latest addition to the Histoires de Parfums scent library, which includes 12 existing fragrances, the Tuberose Trilogy captures the sweet and heady perfume of the tuberose and combines it with different middle and base notes to create three distinct tuberose fragrances.
Tubereuse 1 La Capricieuse is a powdery gourmand floral with notes of saffron, bergamot, mandarin, tuberose, iris, ylang ylang, cacao, suede and white musk.
Tubereuse 2 La Virginale is a floriental with notes of mandarin, cherry, tuberose, iris, tiare, frangipani, blond woods, patchouli, vanilla and white musk.
Tubereuse 3 L'Animale is a floral leather with notes of kumquat, bergamot, neroli, plum, herbs, dry grasses, hay, jasmine, tuberose, blond tobacco, immortelle, woods and labdanum.
