Soapy. Not beautiful French milled soap, but rather the cheap grocery store stuff that is made from rendered animal byproducts. (Road kill and expired grocery store meats are sent to rendering plants.) This is the kind of soap that leaves you wanting to re-shower to remove the soap scum. I love fine soaps and I adore tuberose, so just what is this note that I am so acutely weirded out about? I want to know what it is, so I can avoid it at all costs. Prada's tuberose is gorgeous and very subtle, but the rancid soap smell ruins it for me.
Mothball floral is the only way i can explain the scent. I dont know what i was thinking when i purchased this... its just not for me.
This is such an odd perfume. For 10 months out of the year, I find it impossible. It has a cotton candy meets mothball meets powder (??) quality that confuses me. It is unlike anything I have ever smelled, in that it makes me curious and queasy at the same time.
When the dog days of summer roll in, and the humidity hangs on your skin like a veil, I actually reach for this. It is not offensive and is clean. Maybe the heavy air dampers the rotten flower element people are talking about? Not sure. Still confused on this one.
Pricey as always. Exquisite packaging as always. Beyond better than the Orangier and Amber. Iris perfume is divine but loud on me -- EDT is amazing. If someone can start a thread on the Rose, I would review it too. (It opens like tuberose and then changes. Like you have taken a silky rosewater bath. )
Won't repurchase because it is too out there for me, and there are simply too many other lovelies to try!
seems like this fragrance isnt getting much love.. but i do love it, it think this fragrance is quite specific for people, tbh ive never smelt a tubureuse before so i dont know what a fresh one would smell like. but for me personally i love it... i actually bought a backup of this because its apparently limited edition? anyway, its a really unique smell, and i can see why its a love it or hate it kind of perfume.
the only down side is.. it doesnt late very long... doesnt matter tho.. i have a backup :D
This is a disappointing watered-down rotting tuberose. This lacks freshness and seems stale and watery, as if cut off from oxygen and diluted in water for a very long time.
Mothball floral. This is exactly the reason I hate white florals: they smell like I've hung a bag of mothballs around my neck and splashed some creamy tropical scent over the top. Nasty nasty nasty, and at this quality and price point, it won't scrub off. Argh is the proper term, I believe.
It's way too rosey and sweet at first, almost sickly sweet, and without complexity. Luckily it has almost no staying power. In about two hours, the only way I could smell it was by sticking my nose on my skin and inhaling deeply. I really recommend you try wearing it for a few hours before you buy it. I think you'll be disappointed in the smell and length of wear.
I bought the large bottle of Prada Infusion de Tubereuse recently. Its novelty has quickly worn off. It is a watered down waterlogged tuberose; nothing very interesting. I thought it would grow on me since I often find scents with tuberose can be a little overwhelming and thought this was the key to solving the problem - it's a very subtle scent and I liked the other two infusion scents, why not give it a try, I thought. I did not debate whether to buy it for very long, it was a very spontaneous purchase. One that I am very unhappy with now, though. Very boring, not complex with a very short staying power and not worth the money I paid. Disappointed. Lovely bottle though - I think that's what clinched me in!
