    Default Elite by Floris - I get the tuberose big time

    Someone gifted me with a box of Floris soap in the Elite scent. I'd known before that Elite is considered a "very" masculine scent, but that it also has a tuberose note that sets it apart from the herd. Well, I've gone through 2 bars out of the 3 already - I love this scent as a bath product, the way it scents the steam in the shower and makes the whole room smell good. I can distinctly pick out the tuberose in the soap's waftage. How does this note do in the fragrance? Is it something that lurks in the underlayers, making a brief showing in the base, or does it play its part sooner and more brightly lit? I'd love to hear any experiences with Elite - thanks.

    I don't remember being able to smell tuberose distinctly in the EDT. I wish I did! I was not impressed at all by the EDT in fact, and the one word I would use to describe it is "stale". The soap, however, sounds great!

    Although I am aware of tuberose in the base, it really is quite gentle. It adds a creamy, slightly nutty quality to the drydown, and it is quite different to what I expected early on. I wore this a number of times during the cooler months, and I have really become quite fond of it. It is always much classier than I remember, and its a simple idea well executed. I think I might be seeking that full bottle sometime in the Autumn

    Hmm....I'm getting intrigued by the idea of getting a sample of Elite and seeing how it fits with me. Next time I order my soaps (soon), I think I'll request one.

    Floris soaps are very re-assuring in their wonderful quality. It's nice to know that something this good is still being made. I'm even fond of the slightly stodgy packaging!
