    You need to try Lutens' Cedre. It has that complex, mentholated tuberose note blended with woody notes. This fragrance does not appeal to everyone. For some, I think the tuberose note is just too strange. But it is a very rich, warm, woody fragrance that works well in winter for me.

    I second the Cedre. Also checkout Lorenzo Villoresi Alamut.

    The new Bond No.9 Harrods for her was originally made for men, and it is a gorgeous tuberose/leather scent that can be very masculine. You should try that one out.

    Noix de Tuberéuse by Miller Harris

    Once you have allowed the slighly floral top notes to dissipate, you are left with a beautifully smooth tuberose infused dry down. It is slightly sweet, but on the right side of acceptable.

    I really enjoy Carnal Flower - it has a very natural, earthy, moist quality to it and the more I wear it the more I appreciate it's artistry . . .

    Cedre makes me feel sick to my stomch...its just *too* much.

    A Travers La Miroir by Thierry Muger is a good tuberose option. Otherwise, Tubereuse Criminelle.

    Richard James Savile Row by Richard James (with a lil' bit of tobacco - crisp, starchy, dandy-fied stuff)
    Tuberose Criminelle by Serge Lutens (you have to like the smell of menthol to wear this one - it's quite unique and hard to get a bottle of too...but SO worth it)

    There are a handful of others, but these two would be a good place to start.

    I third Richard James.

    Great tuberose with a little tobacco and suede. A very complex fragrance that evolves very nicely.

    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange

    I second Carnal Flower - don't be put off by the opinion of some saying it's too feminine. At least give it a try.

    FM Carnal Flower by Dominique Ropion. It's almost a tuberose overdose, almost....

  13. #13

    Default Re: Tuberose for man

    I love Carnal Flower far beyond reason. But I still do not believe a man can successfully pull off a tuberose soliflore. I always feel like I'm wearing a funny hat when I try to.

    I third Cedre. I honestly cannot see how some people call this one overpowering. It's slightly sweet and a bit intense, but I find the sillage is only moderate. Beauty is in the nose of the beholder, I suppose.

    I think Cedre is a pleasant, mellow ambery-tuberose, but I feel it may be a bit overrated as a mens tuberose fragrance. It's certainly no less sweet than any tuberose soliflore, so why not go for the full deal? ( At least that's how I felt when I tried it before; I may feel different now. ) Personally, for ambery grape-pop tuberose - which I find Cedre to be - I find Dior's Poison more than adequate.

    As Mike said, Tubereuse Criminelle is great, and it's my favorite tuberose. I smell wintergreen, tuberose, vanilla and musk, but mostly a big, gorgeous tuberose note. Some people can't stand the top note, though, so give it a try before you buy.

    Carnal Flower is another great; a pure, green tuberose with jasmine, coconut and musk in the base. It's at the opposite end of the scale from Tubereuse Criminelle.

    Many men are NOT comfortable wearing it, but Fracas is something you should at least try if you like tuberose. In the same vein, Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia is a gorgeous tuberose and gardenia fragrance - I know, right, who would have guessed! - that is purely floral but worth experiencing.

    I regularly wear both Carnal Flower and Tubéreuse Criminelle, and would consider them two good (and very different) starting points for a man experimenting with tuberose. I concur with Galamb_Borong on Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia, too.

    Definitely Carnal Flower....yeah, ofcourse it's a floral but I think most men should have no issues with that if you are comfortable wearing florals....besides the drydown is musky which should be fine for men who find the top far too feminine...

    I think this fragrance could be called "Fracas pour Homme": XPEC Original

    The XPEC Original fragrance concept:

    XPEC Original was conceived as a fragrance of seductive and individual richness… with qualities of gravitas and power… bold, decisive and very masculine… yet underneath revealing all of the subtlety, sensitivity and charm of the classic English gentleman.

    “Cedarwood, Oak Moss and Pepper gave me a very male character as a baseline. Ginger and Citrus I chose for their qualities of Mediterranean warmth. And, to soften and round these characteristics, I wanted to include Rose too since they are my favourite flowers.

    Tuber Rose is less obviously feminine, and yet it has a mellow, sensual elegance. Thyme provides a contrast, a balance with the rose and to give an uplift, a feeling of excitement almost of hypnotic intoxication. This is what I felt that I wanted in this new man’s fragrance.

    So I mapped out all the words I use to describe this perfume concept, and then placed by each word an essential oil; and presto! XPEC Original was born. This is my expertise – creating a perfumery concept a picture of a fragrance.”

    – Shirley Brody, designer

    I agree with ya SoFresh! This is by far the most masculine usage of Tuberose that I have smelled thus far. Plus it's got some really nice woody notes and cinnamon in it as well. Well worth a sniff.

    As already mentioned, Carnal Flower by Frederic Malle and Tubereuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens are both excellent choices. However, if you are open to it Fracas by Robert Piguet is a gorgeous buttery tuberose and pretty much the gold standard for tuberose fragrances. Private Collection: Tuberose Gardenia was also mentioned, but I consider it to be more of a gardenia than a tuberose.

    XPEC Original +1

    Love the thyme in this. On the whole, it reminds me very much of the rare Crown Sandringham, but with tuberose in place of muguet. This is the only composition I've tried that has enough dark bitterness to counteract the buoyant heady richness of the tuberose.

    I'm going to recommend an as yet unreleased fragrance, "Gold Leather".

    The notes include Ambers, Tuberose, and Leathers.

    it wears very well, and is quite nice.

    Try Khateer ("Dangerous", EdP spray) from Swiss Arabian. It's for men, very masculine and with a strong tuberose note.
    Other officially listed notes: amber, spices, sandalwood, agarwood and musk. I like it.
