After testing it, I've had exactly the same impression you had, RTbar!
Expecting a very sweet and girlish scent, I was myself surprised about CF being earthy and dry. I also experienced how it literally melts with the skin and stays, though faintly, also after a shower! So, I can figure out how high the tuberose absolute extract percentage can be in it and that can justify (at least partially) the astronomically high price. Very elegant juice that I see myself wearing with chic clothes.
