    It's hard to say which one is the best. After all, there are so many different ways to present this opulent flower.

    I like big, bold, killer type of tuberose. For me there are three types of tuberose perfumes: those smell like Fracas, those share the same room with Tubereuse Criminelle, and the rest of them.

    Fracas set an example for silky tuberose + sweet fruit combos. It casts a long shadow for its followers: Tubereuse by Caron (2003), Beyond Love by Kilian,Péché Cardinal by MDCI, and even Narcotic Venus by Nassomatto etc. etc.

    With its overdose of methy salicylate on top("vics vapo" "wintergreen") and distinctive "fish weed" note ("insect repellent"), Tubereuse Criminelle can be its own type. But since it's also exploited the green, raw, vegetal side of the flower, it inspired successor like Carnal Flower, which substitute strong eucalyptol for methyl salicylate. In the genre of green, raw, "natural" tuberose, I can also also think of Tubereuse Absolu by Perris Monte Carlo, and maybe Moon Bloom by Hiram Green.

    Of course there are other candidates:
    L'eau Sandaleus by Anatole Lebreton and Adjatay by The Different Company combine the lush tuberose and thick leather;
    a big white flower bomb like Honour for woman by Amouage;
    mouth watering warm spice+tuberose Sotto La Luna TUBEROSE by Tauer;
    wild, beastly presentation like Nuit Noire by Mona di Orio or Tubereuse 3 by Histoire de Parfum ... and many many more.
    The French have a phrase for it. The bastards have a phrase for everything.

    Another vote for Carnal Flower here. I should really wear it more than I do.

    Cocaine by Franck Boclet is an interesting tuberose fragrance, worth checking out.

    But I chose Carnal Flower.

    I went with Poison because I felt it was under-represented, but would've said Fracas as a close second

    My favourite tuberose is Blonde from Versace. It has really become a forgotten fragrance, (probably because it was discontinued several years ago).
    Anyone curious about it should look it up on the fragrantica directory.

    This whole thread is making my head spin. Apparently I don't care for tuberose cuz none of these perfumes does anything for me. However, I love other white florals--jasmine, orange blossom, lily. Huh. Weird.

    My favorite is Amouage Love Tuberose. No surprise!
