Whilst I get quite a bit of neroli initially, after a quarter of an hour emanates what is one of the best tuberose notes I ever came across. Jasmine, rose and later a touch of amber form the accompaniment, but in spite the forty top-quality ingredients this is essentially a rich and typical tuberose fragrance on my skin. Beautiful, superbly blended, not too sweet, and with good projection, the longevity is a splendid eight hours. 4.5/5
Very funny, Le Labo.
But seriously-- if you're going to do a neroli, do it well.
Very nice classic neroli and tuberose. Like the Fleurs D' Oranger of Lutens, but fresher and lighter and with a dash of citrus, and no spice note. A very summery tuberose EdP, and a standout in the Le Labo line. LOVE.

I agree that it's primarily a neroli fragrance, with the tuberose sneaking in almost around "the side of one's nose" to tweak the wearer. Unexpectedly lovely. Damn it.
If people understand the smell of raw tubereuse oil by itself then they will understand T40. Normally tubereuse smells like a floral gardenia, citrus and green. Its been combined by that exact combination so that when it drys down, it ends up smelling like a natural tubereuse. Just have to deal with the "cologne smell" of citrus in the beginning. Thumbs up from me!
