Fracas Lite, or Fracas minus the aldehydes. A less heady tuberose that's slightly more green. Longevity's pretty impressive for a Jo Malone, 5+ hours on me.
Agreed..the JM version is the only tuberose to rate since Fracas. I haven't compared them head to head but will happily wear either. Very underrated scent. Maybe because it is heady and cheerful, uplifting all at once. It's as if the scent of the garden has followed you out. Wonderful.
I love this scent the best of all the Jo Malone fragrances I wear. It layers well with French Lime Blossom for those more casual times. By itself It's elegant and feminine without being too girly and I can wear it to work without fearing I'll frighten the men (I work with a lot of engineers and scientists). I know some feel tuberose smells old ladyish. I feel that way about Chanel No. 5. Old Lady is in the nose of the beholder I guess.
Smells like old lady to me. Couldn't wait to wash my wrist after I tried this on.
Of the tuberose fragrances I've tried, this is the closest to Fracas, only less complex. I love Fracas so I like JM Tuberose alot too, I only wish Jo Malone would make Tuberose in an EDP or parfum strength for better longevity.
