Proof Beyond A Reasonable Doubt
Tuberose has come back into use in recent years, thanks to a modern reinterpretation of its heady scent. Its waxy white petals offer some of the most enticing notes in the world of fragrances - powerful, seductive, and exquisite. Percy Bysshe Shelley immortalized it in poetry as "the sweetest flower for a scent that blows." It is a tricky thing; you think it's innocent, but it's dangerous. I love tuberose, that's true, yet they have already done well all great tuberoses, for example, Tubereuse Criminelle, Fracas, Beyond Love, and Carnal Flower, don't they? Yet now and then, new tuberose pops up that brings something new to the table, different from all these genuinely wonderful things above. Jo Malone's image of casual elegance and minimalism gave the ZARA brand a plus. The bottles are simple, handy, the off-white packaging has a retro appeal, and it presents the collection in a way that eliminates the intimidating factor. Jo usually bases scents on single-note ideas such as rose, grapefruit, bellflower, or in combinations that are trendy or reassuring, for instance, oud, pear and freesia, tea and bergamot, and so forth. With Tubereuse Noir, she built the perfume around the contrast of sensual white flowers and creamy woods.

Let's dive into the Tubereuse Noir. The starting point is intriguing because you experience the petals' delicate softness against the dark and wealthy background. At first, Tubereuse Noir feels sparkle, with plenty of juicy citruses and mellifluous ylang-ylang to create a sweet shimmering effect. There is a crisp, bitter green in the background; I seem to catch a hint of absinthe, earthy, and aromatic with a herbaceous edge that gives a sophisticated accent to the scent. So, it's sweet, but not dramatically or overly sweet. Angelica, which takes more of a back seat to the tuberose behind the wheel, adds a peppery look and a crisp green feel.

Let the pepper and green nuances of the top notes fade; the clean jasmine and dewy tuberose set the crucial stage. The heart is heavy on these floral notes' fatty and milky nuances, rather than anything animalic and sweaty. Both the intoxicating white blooms are renowned for their sumptuous, sensual scent that leaves a beautiful trail. The fact is that tuberose can be pretty demanding and dominates every air molecule it comes into contact with. In here, it is slightly buttery, but not too much to become heady or narcotic. The middle stay is a megillah scroll, and it goes on for hours.

The darkness I mentioned earlier comes thanks to some smooth woods, the amber, and sandalwood that compose the base. It is a similar twist used in the perfumes mentioned earlier, but Tubereuse Noir never even gets close to being a femme fatale. The dry-down features a woody note with an amber-like scent that brings addictive warmth and sensuality to the fragrance.

The tuberose here is quite realistic to me, more green than buttery, and it isn't too sweet. The deeper it sits on the skin, the more diminished the character becomes. The tuberose with its coconut milk-like vibe and amber are still there, and Tubereuse Noir unexpectedly lasts further than many other ZARA offerings. Still, it stops being distinctive after about a few hours. You end up with yet another nice white floral with an oriental twist, which is not bad. It's a fragrance that is effortless and pretty, wearable and undemanding. It also brings a novelty to the universe of tuberose that I've not seen before, precisely the silky, lactonic texture. Men should try this. I am wearing it today, so I just wanted to mention that it's genderless. It is versatile during the middle seasons, daily and nightly occasions on crisp spring and fall months.

I base this review on a 100ml bottle that I have owned since November 2019.

Black tuberose?
As soon as a fragrance has the addition of "black", "noir", "dark", "mystique" or similar in its name, I get quite nervous. Why is that? I don't know, but somehow I seem to associate the mysterious and the mysterious with it, and that attracts me magically. Curiosity and stuff
However, Tubereuse Noir is in no way dark or even black. It starts off very bright with ylang and quite quickly the tuberose is added, which immediately forms a connection with the ylang. As was already written in the statements, this fragrance is suitable for all those who haven't yet ventured into fragrances with tuberose. There is nothing heavy, pompous, old-fashioned or even numbing about it - quite the opposite. TN stays bright and friendly all the time and the sandalwood adds something creamy, very smooth.

TN lasts for about 8 hours, but can only be seen when you get very close to me. To be fair I have to say that my skin reflects scents very badly and therefore I do not rate the silage. However, Jo Malone's scents are also known for restraint and not for murderous silage.

If you are looking for a quiet, light daytime scent, you should definitely test TN. The tuberose has been given an olfactory silencer and beginners, sceptics and cautious people can be confident. No one is killed, eaten or butchered by the tuberose. I swear it.

Great tuberose dry scent
This is a very nice perfume. First of all i must say that if you are waiting for a jo Malone quality perfume this Zara línea is a bit far from them. While most JM perfumes are eau de Cologne these ones are eau de parfum and however the longevity is even weaker than on jo Malone ones. But a JM fragance costs more than 100€ while you can get these fragances for 20€ euros so they really worths the price and the quality is not bad, nice smell and moderate performance, Closer to the Zara one than to the jo Malone one and a little bit synthetic too.

In the case of tubereuse noir the tuberose smell is the one that i get the most. The smell is sweet but less than other tuberose perfumes like carnal flower by Frederic Malle which is much more creamy. TN by Zara remember me to melodie de l'amour by dusita perdones, more pwdery and soapy ir even to Jasmine noir by bvlgary.

I think the perfume is totally unisex. If you like tuberose you Will like the perfume and It doesnt Matter if you are a Man or a woman. Un adition It is a soft scent so is suitable for an every day use, better for a daily use than to wear at night.

It is a very good new that jo Malone colaborarte with Zara and that que can enjoy these wonderful fragances for only 20€!

Most suitable for the female audience, but usable for men (i used it). A dense and floral fragrance, nice for spring (day and night).
