Reviews of Nuit de Tubéreuse

Not bad--I used my sample and largely enjoyed it. Definitely do not need to go out and buy this though. It is, of course, very floral, and can get a bit overwhelming when applied generously. But on my skin there is nothing that really differentiates it from a whole host of other Big White Floral nice-for-summer-can-get-a-bit-too-much scents.

This is one I would never have considered in the past. It's very peppery on opening and has a fruity tang that's usually a no-no for me. But, maybe it's the time of day, I'm trying this mid afternoon, and I'm loving it today! It's much spicier than I thought and not too 'sultry tropical'. Actually I think this is only the second or third time I've ever sprayed this -- it was part of a set of four or five travel sized vials I got a couple of years ago from the Artisan website. I think I sometimes get a sort of fatty rancid butter hint from heavier perfumes on initial spray and this definitely had that on last spraying (maybe I imagine it and it's time of day dependent - evening scents in the evening, morning scents in the morning...). It mixes up the floral and the spicy very nicely. I'm even imagining something sweet and sharp like ginger - probably the pepper and cardamom. Anyway it works beautifully today

Nuit de Tuberouse: a fragrance that I will visit again and again. It melted into my skin and that first blast of peppered florals was alluring. I was instantly home in the Keys again. The whirring of the Traveller Palm as the rain begins to rouse a deeper fragrance from the drenched flora. This is a precarious blend. I feared the tuberose would be sickingly sweet and would be reminiscent of spring breaker who pollyanna'd out, avoiding the festivities. Not this girl she has been set free at last. A Pollyanarchist; young, beautiful,confident and in your face with sensuality. All the other flowers will be lost in her tropical storms

This creation struck me as odd, as I was left wondering why anyone would try to stick juicy tuberose in the middle of a desert of crisp spices, when all of a sudden it hit me - this isn't just tuberose; it's tuberose potpourri! I get a lot of the pepper and cardamom, as well as the telltale yellow-green angelica I love so much. It's all been dried up, crumbled, and dropped into a bowl. Truth be told tuberose-centric fragrances that I honestly enjoy are pretty few and far between, and not since sampling l'Arte di Gucci have I felt so highly of one. Fans of the usual floral bouquet will be taken aback here, but this sweet yet dry composition is a whole new facet in this flower's personality and a refreshing new take on the matter altogether. The fact that it has staying power far superior to that of most l'Artisan releases is a pleasant bonus.

When I find a tubereuse fragrance I love, (which happens rarely) I embrace it fully. Perhaps it is because this isn't the "chubby" tuberose (aka Carnal Flower) that I love it so very much. The spicy wood aspect of this is fantastic on my skin.

As far as "blatant accord borrowing", Nuit de Tubereuse was created by Bertrand Duchaufour as was Timbuktu & Dzongkha. How is this improper if he is putting together bits & bobs of his other creations to make something new?

I love it.
It smells great on me.
I get lots of compliments.

Thumbs up from me.

Genre: Floral Oriental

Bertrand Duchaufour has been venturing beyond the incense-heavy style he’s been associated with in the wake of Avignon, Timbuktu, Dzongkha, Jubilation XXV, and the early releases in the Eau d’Italie line. I’ve been taken with some of the resultant floral compositions, including Amaranthine, Magnolia Romana, and Fleur de Liane, so it was with much pleasure that I looked forward to Nuit de Tubéreuse. I was particularly curious to see how Duchaufour would handle this most lush, heady, and voluptuous of white flowers, especially after his success with the grand tropical bouquet of Amaranthine.

I expected the treatment of tuberose to be novel, and my expectations were borne out by Nuit de Tubéreuse’s dusty cardamom, pepper and angelica, which associate in an unprecedented way with the tuberose that wells up to join them. The result renders tuberose soapy rather than fleshy, and much drier and leaner than I am accustomed to. It’s only after this promising introduction has had time to settle and dissipate that disappointment first sets in. The curiously dry tuberose persists as spices recede, but what slides in to replace then is a harsh, overtly chemical artificial wood note that feels like sawdust being shoved up my nose. It’s an effect that’s ruined many a masculine drydown for me, and while it’s novel and unexpected in a white floral context, it’s no more pleasant. As a background element, the pseudo-wood might have effectively reinforced the dry austerity that Duchaufour plays against his tuberose, but set to the fore, as here, it overwhelms the entire composition.

On a hopeful note, I may well be oversensitive to Nuit de Tubéreuse’s woody aromachemical. In that case, less sensitive noses may not object to it here. If you enjoy tuberose or admire Duchaufour’s work, I recommend trying Nuit de Tubéreuse. It’s a new and interesting approach to a familiar ingredient, though your regard for it may depend on how you perceive its woody base note.
