Reviews of Noix de Tuberéuse

Resinous tuberose, ostensibly almondy-fruity and honeyed till the boundaries of the gourmand territories. More syrupy than properly floral, really carnal whether for carnal you mean edible, yummy and erotic. If Eclair de Tubereuse  by Il Profvmo, the last tuberose i reviewed, was highly botanic, averagely dense for the main part of the development, more realistic and  finally slightly velvety-balmy though properly floral, Miller Harris Noix de Tubereuse, despite the initial starring role of mimosa and tuberose, is an ambery, highly resinous and edible oriental  with a syrupy and slightly gassy fruity flavour that turns the smell out almost irresistible under the glutton's nose.  Is like some cherries or cranberries (not listed) would be included in the blend and i catch a sort of fruity syrup, the violets and a final tasty balsam (or a mysterious fruity resin). The scent could be worn by a daring man cause as soon as the sweetness recedes in the dry down (by far the best part) i catch a sort of final virile and prickly  rooty-ambery spark (may the be orris root, ambergris and tonka bean aftertaste). The final outcome is barely gummy, salty-sweet (exotic), almost dark (violets and amber), pungent and mysterious. A good work for sure, may be a bit too syrupy for my full pleasure.

This is a tuberose made warm, rich, & sweet by mimosa, tonka, amber & fig. There is a honeyed, almondy quality to this which makes it very different from other tuberoses l've tried. l'd say it would be best not to wear this in very warm weather, as the sweetness could be overpowering. l like & respect it, but it's just not quite me, hence the neutral rating.

Miller Harris's Noix de Tubéreuse smells like a perfect combination of Fracas and L'Origan. The opening is tuberose and bubble gum, and then a few seconds later something like coconut emerges. I'm not a fan of super-sweetsie fragrances, but I don't find this stage offputting. It's fun, interesting, short lived and totally inoffensive. What emerges in the middle notes is something that smells very much like L'Origan. There's an oriental vibe here, a nice balance of what smells like heliotrope, a little powder, some violet-like notes, and a bit of amber. The ultimate drydown is basically more of the same. I have no idea what specific consumer MH had in mind for NdT, but I would recommend this for those who love the greats like Fracas and L'Origan, especially. NdT seems to be an homage to these classics. Sillage is subtle, much more so than Fracas.

If I could put a face with Noix de Tubéreuse , it would be Jean Arthur, the great actress from the past. Like Arthur, NdT has an easy glamour and projects a good sense of humor. Each is a perfect fit for the other.

As expected, the opening was extremely heady, with Mimosa particularly dominant. My fears that this would remain firmly in the feminine camp were unfounded, as became clear once the dense floral weave was sweetened, and embraced by the Amber. The resulting warm, almond like accord, is truly worthy of the entrance fee alone. Although there was minimal evolution post top notes, there didn't need to be. Once in it's stride this was languid, smooth and a delightfully engaging.

This scent is the definition of why I dislike tuberose in some frags (i.e. this one) and not in others. This was too heavy, sweet and cloying for me, although objectively I wouldn't call it "bad" - it didn't smell synthetic at all. Just not to my taste, at all. Something I can see wearing with red lipstick and fur. Very glamourous and feminine.

Miller Harris fragrances are def.high quality and of a high degree of natural ingredients, so much so that I'm not sure I'd be able wear them in the summertime.

That said, I found NdT an even higher quality than Fracas (which more than one person described as smelling like bubble-gum). Two, it is heady and strong, so wear with care. Somewhere else it was mentioned women love tuberose scents, while I have yet to meet a man who likes them. give them vanilla and musk and you're it. God bless them :)

I guess this means save this one for lunch with the girls or scare the broads at work :)
