    Default Tuberose and white floral for man

    I look for a tuberose and white floral(especially jasmine) fragrances that would be not too femenine on male skin.
    Jour d`Hermes Absolu is something I enjoy a lot. Madonna Tod is a bit femenine, though I wear it too. And all other tuberose based fragrances I am familiar with are too sweet to wear them.
    Nuit de Tubereuse L`Artisan - I'm not shure about mango and tropical feel(any thoughts?)
    Fracas - as I own Truth or dare and it is too sweet I am a bit curious about this one.
    Michael Kors for woman and Suede - any ideas?
    Any suggestions? (Except tubereuse criminelle, cedre, carnal flower and Tubereuse 3 Animale)

    That's a difficult one. Amouage Gold? But Gold is not really a tuberose. Oh, I got one: Bogue Maai. That's a hell of a tuberose and is so animalic that it can easily be considered a masculine fragrance.

    No tuberose notes, although a few marginal white floral notes, can also be sensed in Fahrenheit 32

    I don't know if you've tried it, but White Patchouli by Tom Ford could be something interesting. The caveat is while one can pick out the peony, the floral notes are in general densely blended. Jasmine is listed as a note, but very hard to detect. Also, it doesn't contain any single large dollop of a particular white floral note. Definitely very unisex.

    Another one worth checking out is Fleurs d'Oranger by Lutens.

    So far I found only one I can wear without any double thoughts - Tubereuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens. Quite dark, angular, strong wintergreen and moth-balls odour to balance the tuberose note mixed with jasmine and narcissus. Nothing feminine about the scent.

    May be this one....
    I personally like Carnal Flower (which you excluded from the list already). Second, I got the change to smell "Tubereuse 40 (New York) by Le Labo" and liked it also.

    I sampled a round of tuberose fragrances and the one I liked and now wear is Parfumerie Generale Tubereuse Couture.

    Jasmine-wise, a great one (and one I own) is Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette.
    -- Creamy, salty-sweet, an oaky nuttiness . . . You detect that?
    -- Oh I'm detecting nuttiness.

    I have no idea how you define " too sweet", but Juicy Couture by Juicy Couture is a lovely Tuberose IMO, quite inexpensive, and readily available.

    I would say either Lutens' Cedre (which I find rather cloying, but it has its fans, and is basically a tuberose scent, despite the name).

    Otherwise - Vierges et Toreros by Etat Libre d'Orange. Heavy on the tube, but definitely masculine.

    Two more fragrances that might be worth exploring:

    Monserrat by Bruno Fazzolari: Tart, fruity, white florals (mainly jasmine), green, summery with a subtle vague rotten fruit skankiness about it.

    Cuir Cuba Intense: No Cuba, the merest hint of cuir, but a huge dominant magnolia note supported by liquorice and some soft spices. Personally not much of a fan.

    Have you smelled Carnal Flower? I know it is not on your list, but it is a fabulous Tuberose smell. Very unisex. I'm wearing it today, in fact. Fabulous stuff.

    I've tried cedre and criminelle. I'm going to test carnal flower next week but the thing is I already have several summer frags and at the moment I look for something for casual wear. Summers in my country are exteremely hot and I use huge amounts of fragrance and from this point of view I dont want to spend too much on this. Thats why am deciding mainly between Vierges et Toreros and Nuit de Tubereuse albeit I feel that Carnal flower would be a good choise.

    Douglas Hannant (Piguet) may suit your needs: powerful tuberose, orange flower and jasmine atop a massive musk accord. The musk ameliorates the feminine vibe carried by the flowers. I'd wear it any day.

    I think a guy who likes tuberose notes could wear (with discretion) Blonde by Versace.

    I wonder what he ended up choosing? This thread's a little older. I love a darker tuberose, myself, and all these suggestions are wonderful. I never knew I like tuberose till I smelled Creed's Tubereuse Indiana, which no one mentioned. I search often for a bottle, or a decant, but it seems one of the rarer Creeds. Man, I love that stuff.

    Give the L'Artisan a try, I don't get a tropical vibe.

    +1 on Lutens Fleurs D'Oranger, I own it.

    JPG - Fleur de Male, if you don't mind the heavy vanilla/musk base that comes along with it.

    I personally like Flowerhead by Byredo, it reminds me of tuberose flowers from my childhood. Flowerhead is simple and elegant a great creation.
