Fancy a tequila?
Most of the time, a tuberose scent is a difficult affair. Even their little sisters, magnolia and gardenia, whose scents are usually reconstructed, since naturally little to no fragrance oils can be extracted from them, are already loud and dominance-prone flowers, but the tuberose, which interestingly belongs to the agave family, tops them all.
For me, the tuberose oscillates somewhere between a space-filling diva and a space-blasting drag queen. In any case, she reliably puts on a fanfare-like performance, with a deep, organ-rich alto voice and heaving bosom.

Definitely not here.

Christoph Laudamiel has managed to strip the tuberose of its fumbling, to remove its make-up. His "Tubereuse Organique" comes to us completely without frills and without fanfare, yes, it seems unusually withdrawn and strangely naked.
It almost makes you wonder a little.
For as lofty and exhausting as the tuberose is - it smells mostly so intoxicating and narcotic that I'm ready to endure all the airs and graces without complaint. One breath infused with Malle's "Carnal Flower" and I melt away. But wear it? No, not by any stretch of the imagination.

Am I Mae West? Am I Mary, aka George Prussian? No.

Amazingly, Christoph Laudamiel has staged this unadorned, natural tuberose performance without the slightest drop of any tuberose extract, or tuberose absolute. Here is simply no tuberose in it at all!
And yet "Tubereuse Organique" smells wonderfully like this flower. Captured the perfumer, however, in a much earlier stage than usual, quasi still dewy and fresh from the field. You can already guess where the journey will lead when the flower blossoms into its full regalia. Still the petals are but halfway closed, still cling bright, green and earthy-rooty accents to the flower, merge into a wonderful organic plant aroma, which one (I) would like to drink the most.

Speaking of drinking: as already mentioned, the tuberose belongs to the agave family. And this is where Christoph Laudamiel's tuberose fantasy comes in: he creates his fresh, green tuberose accord with the help of lavandin LMR (an organic certified raw material from a French cooperative), some Egyptian jasmine absolute, and a shot of real organic tequila ("123 Tequila" by David Ravandi).
Since tequila is famously an agave spirit, the connection here is to tuberose. Not that it immediately opens up to me, but somehow the scent of "Tubereuse Organique" reminds me distantly of a drink that we liked to drink at the end of the 80s, beginning of the 90s with a certain creepiness: Mezcal; the old, matured, with the worm in it. With the last sip, that came out with it and could/should/did get eaten. Fortunately, I never got embarrassed....

Maybe it's just my imagination, since I haven't had this liquor in ages, or maybe it's not. In any case, don't think of the white, fizzy tequila we used to enjoy with lemon and salt in vast quantities back in the day, but rather the brown, dark tequila - but please forget the obligatory orange and coffee (or cinnamon), as they are not in the mix.
Needless to say, he, Christoph Laudamiel and his co-perfumer Ugo Charron, enjoyed a glass or two of it - right they were!

With tequila, lavandin and jasmine, the two have thus recreated the floral accord, with oakmoss, certified organic vetiver and patchouli they formed the green stalk and the root system, which still adheres to the scent of damp earth.
Accentuated this new creation with some ambrette seeds, some hibiscus, angelica and tagetes - I can not smell out in detail, but is mentioned in the list of ingredients.

"Tubereuse Organique" is thus apparently a tuberose soliflor, but just apparently, if you look at the involved notes gaggle. It is amazing how exactly this gaggle coordinated with each other, how perfectly calibrated it is - all, but really all participate in this organic tuberose chord, which there is not so at all, but which they convincingly intonate.
Great!

I would now smoothly feel like a tequila - I had not for a long time!

Tuberose field
I'm very happy to own the very first and signed bottle of Tubéreuse Organique that came out of their lab. It’s exactly like their description. This is a fresh dewy tuberose. It doesn’t smell of Fracas, it doesn’t have that carnal fleshiness of tuberose absolute because it doesn’t contain any. By a magical sleight of hand these different non-tuberose materials (many of them certified organic) combine to smell wonderfully of both the blooming petals and the green stems and leaves. There's also a dusty mentholated aspect that is slightly reminiscent of Tauer's Sotto la Luna Tuberose. In the drydown a green sap smell somewhat reminds me of a certain aspect of their Fig My Love (itself an amazing realistic full package of fig leaves, stems and fruit).

One spritz on the blotter is enough to make my whole room smell like a tuberose farm. Wearing it on myself I am a walking field in full bloom.

A fresh and spicy floral-green Fougère, balanced by warm and creamy/sweet earthy-woody base. Awesome take on a realistic Tuberose! Feminine.
