Fit for royalty
I agree with Sherapop, the least noticeable flower in this blend is indeed the tuberose, lol. Creed used to list more notes, for this fragrance, there is also ylang, neroli, iris, rose, gardenia and jasmine, I don't know why they no longer list those. Also ommited from the list is amber, which is very different from Ambregris, both play an important role in this composition.
Actually many Creed scents are similar in the notes used, just in different amounts, and the variations yield perfumes that are very different from each other, albeit with a common theme.

T.I is an rich, expansive scent, a grand entrance maker with an unforgettable exit style. It transfers very easily and winds up everywhere: on clothing, upholstery, in hair... It's the fragrance of a woman who likes to be obvious about leaving her trace, but in grand style: this woman will never be mistaken for lower class.
She will use her fragrance to mark her territory, to intimidate even, but primarily to seduce: With an armfull of heady flowers, a sprinkling of spices, and a rich, substancial base, she will turn heads and stop conversations in her wake.

The perfume is not really sweet, but it is a wealth of beautiful notes that keep moving like clouds across the sky, twirling around and teasing the senses with the imposing will of one who means to get her way... and always does.
The lasting power is off the charts, and if you are lucky enough to have a bottle from before 2010 (when the IFRA disfigured the perfume industry), you are holding a perfume with a high concentration of top quality Ambregris and repeated washings will not remove it from fabrics.

And that's exactly how the seductress in you likes it. *smile*

A Surprisingly Spicy Multi-floral Perfume (not a soliflore...)
If Creed INDIANA comprises bergamot, tuberose, vanilla and ambergris, then the Creed clan must be not only perfumers, but also alchemists! The least detectable floral in this spicy bouquet is tuberose! I smell neroli, rose, jasmine, probably gardenia and possibly ylang-ylang, all before tuberose!

Granted, my tuberose standard is FRACAS, but I am baffled as to the disparity between the listed notes and description and the reality of this perfume! I actually like INDIANA quite a lot, but it is a complex oriental floral with an unabashed--truly undeniable--spiciness which cannot to my knowledge be produced by amber alone. I am not sure about the source of the spiciness--could be clove--but I am prepared to boldly proclaim that INDIANA is *not* a simple tuberose-amber composition.

Floriental INDIANA has good staying power and sillage. Too spicy for summer wear, I think. Caveat emptor: do try before you buy; do not rely on the name, which is very misleading!
