Christophe: FRESH TRUE NATURAL WRAP-AROUND
Dream I had a dream of a tubereuse that smells like the fresh dewy blossoms that everyone loves, say on a bright spring morning.
Scent TUBEREUSE ORGANIQUE recreates just that. It is not old, it is not tuberosy, it does not smell artificial. You can feel the organic and fresh character of the blossom on its majestic stem. Your nose caresses the softness and greenness of the petals, in Hawaii, in India or at the flower market at 6am in Sydney.
How did we get so vegetal and organic? With Lavandin Organic-certified LMR and a dash of real Organic-certified Tequila. The tubereuse plant is of the same family as the agave plant, and those quenching tequila notes fit perfectly for a je-ne-sais-quoi so shiny and exhilarating. Of course we had to taste a few Tequilas for that. This one is from 123 Organic Tequila producer Mr. David Ravandi.
Twist This fragrance evokes the reality of being in a tubereuse field, yet is itself a tubereuse fantasy since it does not contain any natural tubereuse extract. Add tubereuse absolute to a true-to-life fresh tubereuse accord, and you ruin the delicacy and natural element of it. Tubereuse absolute is too dark, earthy, stuffy for that. We added Jasmine absolute Egypt as our little extra secret to keep those soft dewy petals going. Much better.
Dave: Tuberose deconstructed and reconstituted as a clever accord of lavender and agave bridged by jasmine to herbaceous and green angelica, marigold and moss. Brilliantly, comprehensively fresh.
Tubereuse Organique Notes: Lavender, tequila, egyptian jasmine, ambrette (musk mallow), angelica, tagetes, patchouli, vetiver and oakmoss.
