    Default L'Artisan Nuit de Tubereuse-I've tried it

    I got a sample of this one for review purposes and just finished it.
    This is an amazing gateway tuberose fragrance.
    If you've been afraid of the heavy hitter tuberoses like Fracas or Carnal Flower, Nuit de Tubereuse is very likely going to be for you.
    This starts with spice and a green mango note that is gorgeous before the tuberose arrives and it ends with a mix of woods and musk.
    I was so very sad to spray the last of my sample on today and can't wait until I can buy a bottle of this.
    This is another amazing fragrance from perhaps the most original perfumer working right now.

    The tuberose obsessed are intrigued! How do you find the sillage and longevity? I hear a lot about the tartness, earth, and spice - in your opinion, is it a "mostly tuberose" fragrance or a "mostly not tuberose but has a tuberose note" fragrance?

    Thanks so much for giving us an advanced report!

    It is mostly a tuberose fragrance. I think it has a great intensity without being as strong as other tuberose fragrances.
    The longevity on it is very good, I can still smell it well over 12 hours after spraying it on.

    This sounds like a dream fragrance to me! Do you pick up the cardamom and clove?

    I think that what's most interesting about it is that it hollows out the creamy, coconutty aspects of tuberose, which are usually very prominent. The green facets are also treated differently, less eucalyptus-menthol, more on the rooty side, with an incense effect created by the pink pepper and green mango.
    As a result it's not as heady as other tuberose scents and it's got that trademark Duchaufour quirkiness.

    I don't know how to put in a link to my blog in my signature, so I'll just add the links to my two-part interview of Bertrand Duchaufour, where he explains the scent's structure:

    What a great interview, thanks so much for sharing it with us.
    I love this quote from Mr. Duchaufour:

    I don’t think anymore in terms of chypres, orientals, whatever… I don’t think in terms of masculine or feminine anymore, not at all, but not at all! And that’s a big step too. But it’s fairly recent, you know.

    Kevin if you go down to Henri Bendel they have a small tester of it behind the L"Artisan counter. You can definitely get a hint about this one.

    Carmencanada/Denyse Thank you for the interview/review I really believe Duchaufour is the most creative nose working for a big commercial house. His fragrances for both L'Artisan and Penhaligon's are showing an artist reaching for new ways to express himself. Your interview proves that that is the way he is approaching perfume composition these days.
    Particularly over the last 12 months there isn't a nose that can hold a candle to the fragrances he has produced.

    I put on an initial spray at Barneys (San Francisco) and really liked it a lot. I have a sample to test some more. But I have a good feeling this could be FBW.

    And that's just the beginning: he's working on so many things I haven't even had a chance to smell all his projects, but there are a couple of leathers in the works.

    Will more perfumers take his artistic stance?
    At the French Fifis, Jean-Claude Ellena said this thing to the industry when he got his award for Eau de Gentiane Blanche: "Trust the perfumers." I hope someone was listening.

    I am salivating at the thought of sniffing this one. I wonder if Seattle Barney's has it?
