Received a sample of this today. It's a very cold tuberose - watery and medicinal. On me, the menthol aspect of the tuberose was so pronounced, I swear it cleared my sinuses. This may sound negative, but I actually found it appealing. Unfortunately, cold fragrances generally end up giving me a headache, and this was no different. If you don't suffer from that problem and like a more fresh, green tuberose, this may be the scent for you.

Straight-up tuberose as far as I can tell. I prefer L'Artisan's Nuit de Tuberose, which is both oily and narcotic.

LOVE!! This is the perfect version of Tuberose for me. One you go there, you never go back. It's sweet yet green, pure yet changeable, bright yet intimate, light yet lasting. In my opinion, it's better than Carnal flower and Fracas.

Do Son = Michael Kors minus the incense note. Or a fresher version of MK.
If you like Michael, Do Son could be a nice choice for a summer fragrance.

Hummmm... I totally smell Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise when I smell Do Son. It's too flowery for me and makes me get a headache... :-(

I got this as a sample included in a purchase, and so cannot comment on price or packaging. I HATE tuberose. Cannot stand it. Every single heady floral gives me a massive headache, and tuberose is the single worst offender. Green fragrances also do not sit well with my chemistry. That said, I've been wearing this non-stop. One spritz on the nape of my neck, so I can smell it (faintly) when I finally put up my hair at the end of the day. It has really good staying power, and smells like a flower blooming on a hot, humid night. I don't know if I like it enough to drop a whole bunch of money on it, but I'll make that decision later - for now, I'm enjoying this wonderful white floral.

Do Son is a simple but deep tuberose scent inspired by Diptyque founder Yves Coueslant’s childhood memories of the fragrant banks of the Red River in Tonkin. This smell is transporting and absolutely beautiful. If you love floral scents there is no way you won't love Do Son. Since Americans don't usually look to Diptyque for fragrances (a mistake) you will have a unique smell all your own.

This is the first tuberose I've ever been able to wear because I have an aversion to heady florals but Diptyque made this one wearable by softening it w/the marine note. It's a very light, airy floral and I got it in part because I wanted a summery scent that wasn't fruity (as all my usual summer frags are) and because I got a 100 ml bottle on sale for $30 at a sample sale! So thumbs up if you want a super light floral for spring/summer.

Have you ever smelt real tuberose, the white, heady flower booming in hot summer evenings? I have, and now I am smelling again from Diptyque’s Do Son. If you are looking for something smells identical to the real flower, you have a winner. Not Miller Harris, not Jo Malone, but Diptyque’s Do Son. The sad thing is that I don’t like tuberose at all. It’s too strong and almost gives me headache. I do love other white flowers such as gardenia, orange blossom and jasmine, but not tuberose.

I love this tuberose. It smells very close to the flower. Many of the other tuberose fragrances are wonderful but they are medleys that include tuberose. Carnal Flower is a good example. It is a blend with Tuberose being the predomnant note and is wonderful, but it doesn't smell exactly like the flower, nor is it meant to. I was after a scent that duplicates nature and this is very close. I have lived in Hawaii and was around fresh tuberose almost everyday and buy fresh cut tuberose whenever I see it in the market. Do Son is one of the the few tuberose scents that smells like the real thing. It is similar to Michael Kors, but Michael has that sensual musky undertone combined with the tuberose. Another one that is great is Il Profumo Eclair de Tubereuse. It smells like Fracas and Annick Goutal Gardenia Passion, but even better cause it's a little less sweet. All of the above mentioned are great Tuberose scents and equally as beautiful, but Do Son is one of the ones that smells closest to fresh tuberose blossoms.
Post edit: after buying a bottle Do Son, I like Il Profumo Eclair de Tubereuse even better. I think of the two, Il Profumo Eclair de Tubereuse smells even closer to fresh cut tuberose.

I really have learnt my lesson. I don't like tuberose at ALL. Its soo heady and stinky. I think the only perfume I own that has any is SL Fleurs d'Oranger, because its tempered by cumin and a orange scent.
At first it smells very strongly of nail polish remover very sharp and stinky and sweet and heady. I want to take it off but leave it on.I think its the tuberose.
Eventually the acridness leaves and I smell tuberose, but in a more floral, calmer way. Then ylang ylang? Jasmine. A bit of coconut and a whisper of sandalwood. But mostly at the end ylang and jasmine. I don't really sense aquatic notes; but I do get a salty ocean note, like in L by Lolita only stronger. This smells very much like Songes minus the cumin and less vanilla.
I really don't like the opening and hate tuberose so I won;t be purchasing.

Like LondonKazza, this made me feel physically ill - and I love the Miller Harris Noix de Tubereuse (used sparingly). I tried a tiny squirt in the shop and almost poisoned everyone on the bus home, the reek was so strong. Far too powerful on me - ain't chemistry a weird thing.

I got a sample of this and sprayed it whilst at work (when I don't like to carry a large bottle with me!)
Anyway, although I thought it was a nice smell, it didn't work on me at all and actually made me feel sick - I ended up washing it off. So all in all not one for me.

It's a nice tuberose floral, though it reminds me of Michael Kors, almost identical. Very green, and it definately has the aquatic notes.

This reminds me of Marc Jacobs with a nicer, less overdone aquatic note. There is a note in here that lends just a hint of warmth, like sitting in next to a pond full of water lilies on a warm summer day. Very pretty, but NOT the ultimate tuberose fragrance by a long shot! You're better off with L'Artisan's La Chasse aux Papillons or Tubereuse, MPG's Tuberose, Miller Harris' Noix de Tubéreuse, or Fracas.
However, this is a very lovely fragrance that is perfect for Spring. Very refreshing to experience such a mellow interpretation of tuberose. A nice break from the typical heady style!

After a series of disappointing tuberose experiences I was beginning to give up hope. However, this and the tuberose from L'artisan kept me going. Do Son smells fantastic--a light and sweet tuberose softened by orange tree leaves and complimented by iris, a tad too much benzoin, and a little musk. It's very girly and pretty, but the best tuberose I've found so far has been FM Carnal Flower (perfection...sigh)followed by Renee (a soft, clean tuberose if you can believe it), followed by Miller Harris' buttery and creamy Noix de Tubéreuse. This still gets four lippies for being so gorgeous.

I had high hopes for this fragrance, as for some reason I thought this was going to be a floral-gourmand mix that only Diptyque can pull off. First there was the story of the creator's Vietnamese upbringing, also a mention of the rice fields he played on in one description I read: I thought this would be the second coming of my beloved (and discontinued) Annam, a rice-tuberose-woods perfection. But this is pretty much a straightforward, light version of tuberose. Very wearable and pleasant, but nothing special. I think I expected too much...

Smelled familiar when I sprayed it on...after a few hours, it was still going strong...then it hit me, it was just like Michael Kor's Michael on me. That's why it made my eyes and nose itch. Not for me.

I gave myself a generous spritzing of this at the San Francisco Diptyque shop. If I was a floral person, I would definitely buy this. A green, fresh tuberose as opposed to a heady, floral one.

Having had the Tuberose Candle from Diptyque, I found Do Son to be a slightly less "true" tuberose than the candle, which I expected, it had hints of other floral notes, and a definite musk presence in it. It is less overpowering than a pure tuberose, which is good. It smells rather a familiar scent to me, maybe because I have so many floral and musk frangrances! sensual yet conmforting, but it has a tendency to feel "cheap" on you too sometimes, but then again you get another whiff of it and it's heavenly... In the end, I might consider getting it (I had a sample) because I love (almost) all the Diptyque frangrances!
