Like so many of Creed's products, I feel like this scent is made for wearing, rather than "showing" and overwhelming other choices on the retail shelf. It's evocative and "correct" in its tuberose-ness, but softened with white-flower notes and a powdery quality that other reviewers noticed. Despite its heavy base scent, it smells fresh and lively--and it lasts, nose to tail, throughout the day or however long you leave it on. (This stuff stays so true that I have an "aged" bottle of 03 that still isn't stale. It's too concentrated for me to wear now in 2014, so I spray it on a little silk pillow every few months and use it as a lingerie sachet.)

I'm all about girly-tough, so this fragrance speaks to me. I prefer florals--I really don't wear much else except a little citrus in the summer--so I love tuberose presented in such a tasteful, judicious manner, A lot of tuberose scent seems chemical, cloying, or spicy-in-a-bad-way like bad antique store potpourri. So I disagree with the reviewers who don't think this scent is intense enough. This my "serious," nighttime choice, and I wear it all year round--fabulous with a little lingering sun product in summer, and on a leather jacket in winter.

I love white flowers and gave this a test drive. It is a soft, lovely tuberose, but not for me. I like my tuberose hooker strength,. Fracas remains my love.

At first I didnīt felt so much tubereuse, just common-mixed flowers and an odd plastic note, very syntetic, but wait...wait.. that does go away and left is a gorgeous varm, creamy, fresh and high quality-tubereuse! My favorourites is still Fracas and Frederic Malle Carnal Flower, but this is my nr 3-favourite, a very nice, rich and natural "autumn- and winter-tubereuse". Feels a little bit oldfashioned, in a good way, a scent for queens from the past! Think "tubereuse-velvet"..

My favorite scent is Fracas, and compared to that this is the weak sister. That said, it is a gorgeous scent. Lovely and calm. Wearable to the office, since it has a lasting time of about 5 minutes (full bloom) on me. Very quiet, close to the skin, creamy tuberose.

This is a tamed, wearable tuberose. It is more of a tuberose dominated green floral, rather than a linear tuberose like Fracas or Beyond Love. I have never brought myself to wear F or BL in public because they are very loud and give off, as one reviewer so aptly said, a haughty aura. This is not a green floral like Carnal Flower either; CF is very sensual whereas this is prettier and more appropriate for polite company. The lasting power on this one is fair--I would have expected much longer lasting for tuberose. Nice enough, but again towards the bottom of my buy list due to competition from Parfums MDCI,. upscale Guerlains and Parfums Delrae.

I think this is probably one of the best tuberose blends on the market; it's very gentle, soft and feminine. The tuberose makes this scent dreamy, there is a bit of sweetness to it and it dries down to a warm powdery finish. It truly lasts all day long (well at least on me it does).

This scent is addicting in a warm and comforting's like being wrapped up in a luxurious cashmere blanket. I can see why this would be more appropriate for the older set; this is a scent a kid (or grandchild) would want to cuddle up to.

I gave this 4 lippies only because I feel too young to wear this...down the road it will be perfect.

I love white flowers, and this delivers. I'd also describe the scent as "creamy". Very elegant and feminine. Just not my style.

Creamy, dreamy and unabashedly feminine, "Tubereuse Indiana" is one of the loveliest Tuberose blends I've tested; It lacks the dried- rubber harshness of "Fracas" and avoids the nasal cutting indoles found in most tropical representations. It opens with expansive creaminess in a big way and little else is noticable for a while; it evokes the long, waxy, tunneled petals of the actual tuberose bloom. It is evocative of time spent lounging under a mosquito net, on big, white pillows...eating creamy sweets, while early morning sunshine creeps through billowing panels. There is also a gentle, green breeze moving through the air, but this story is not about grassy greenness; it's about warm, morning skin that's soaked in a bath and the luxuriousness of such leisure. If "Fleurissimo" is a chiffon dress with little green and yellow flowers, covered by a smart, green tweedy jacket with nylon stockings (all gathering salt from skin in the sunshine) "Tubereuse Indiana" is a gauzy, organza dress, with a subtle breeze blowing through it. I was lucky enough to test "Sillage de la Reine", the fragrance developed to support the museum at Versailles and an approximate reproduction of a fragrance Marie Antoinette would've worn at Trianon. That perfume was poignantly exquisite, evocative---all creamy, skintone oiled over with flowers and touched with earth and hedge. "Tubereuse Indiana" is closest in feeling and composition as "Sillage de la Reine" and I've been searching high and low for a suitable replacement (oh, the ephemeral nature of limited production, hyper-exclusive scents). If you prefer "Creed" when it's showcasing the creamy/sweet/buttermilk notes found in many of their potions, vs. the sharp/spicy/tweediness also found in Creeds, than give TI a test run.

A nice soft tuberose. I did catch a whiff of something fruity, then something spicy, but after that it has been straight tuberose. Those other notes only lasted seconds. I put this on two hours ago, and I can still smell it. It's overpriced.

I was disappointed by this Creed. I received a decant of it in a swap - I was sure that I would have loved it as I love white flowers, and in particular Tuberose.
But this one has very little to do with Tuberose...the flower stays always in the backgroung - yes it's there lingering but way too subtle & fadind to lend its name to christen the entire fragrance!
This perfume starts somehow fruity/flowery - there is this hint of Tuberose that never explodes really and the majority of the notes to me are oriental - spicy (yeah, real "indiana" in the West Indies meaning of the term!).
The heart is all about incense, amber and musk.
The drydown is warm - has some vanilla & musk - again it's oriental. And very soapy. It smells like clean soap.
But nothing utterly feminine nor classy.
Indeed what I regret most in this perfume is the absence of class or sophistication that a Creed should have. In addition, the staying power is close to nil (less than half an hour on my skin!).
Give it a try , but I doubt it will never be an HG.
