Tuberose is sometimes referred to as “the mistress of the night” or “the enchantress of the night,” and it is not hard to see why — or smell why, rather.
Native to Mexico, tuberose grows in tall stalks and produces trumpet-like white flowers that bloom after sundown. Although its bears some similarity, looks-wise, to freesia and mimics jasmine in that its pale flowers bloom during the moonlit hours, it is actually a member of the agave family.
Tuberose is justifiably famous for its fragrance, which is almost always described as alluring or sensual. In folklore, its scent is believed to be an aphrodisiac. Tuberose is frequently used as a “heart note” in perfumes, meaning it is the scent that gives the fragrance body, rather than the one that you immediately sense (the “top note”) or anchors the fragrance as a whole (“base note”).
That being said, many fragrances that incorporate tuberose do so only minimally. They either use a very small amount of tuberose essence, or supplement what they do use with synthetic fragrances.
This is not the case with Tsi-La Organics’ line of Living Flower natural perfumes. The “green luxury” organic fragrances are made with plant and flower extracts. That means the fragrances Tsi-La makes with tuberose actually use real tuberose, not filler chemicals that were manufactured in a laboratory somewhere.
