I used to wear a lot of tuberose about ten years ago. I should have bought tuberose criminelle then because I assuredly would have whipped through a bottle by now. I was more a (frederic malle carnal flower and fracas vintage.

The reason to buy TC is the tiger balm opening, a floral with a twist. The dry down into a tuberose that is warm, nutty and less green than carnal flower …

There must be a university, somewhere, where the course Tubereuse Criminelle is being held.
The discussions, the arguments pro and con, the life experiences ~ all leading to 'The' verdict.
As a student of fragrances, albeit a non professional one, I can scream YES, this is The One ...
The initial 'blast' is akin to entering a wind tunnel ~ and then the cloud …

Bought this fragrance on a literal whim after having read copious controversial reviews. That's right. I bought it based solely on description and the fact that it is supposed to be a scent that is either genius or simply strange depending on one's own body chemistry and personal preferences. Something in my gut told me that I would love this scent. And. I DO! All the things …Read more

I have been reading about this legendary fragrance for quite some time and having never tried it, based on the reviews, I made a blind purchase of a bell jar from a friend who was visiting Paris. Now I know what all the fuss is about. This is so beautiful, especially once you get past the initial bombastic menthol smell. When the menthol calms down, the floral creation shows up and I must say …Read more

No doubt about it, this is a mega tuberose. Yes, of course, there is that hard hit of camphor cool in the first few minutes, but as it settles down you are left with that beautiful, silky tuberose. It is not as attention-getting as my other love, Carnal Flower, but there are days that its sharper edges and the play of wintergreen are just right for me.

Medium sillage, about 8 hours of …

Godzilla Giant Poison Tuberose of Dooooooooooom with a few gallons of methyl salicylate in the topnotes. Love it. Avoid while pregnant or breastfeeding, consult medical practitioner before use.

I can't match the eloquence of many previous posters here. With the exception of Antica Farmacista's Casablanca le Parfum I'm not too much of a soloflore lover. But...as TC and Carnal Flower are well known as "sexual napalm", I couldn't resist ordering a decant of both. Suffice it to say that my hubby pronounced both fragrances as " too smelly, and not subtle …Read more

I nevu tawt I'd wuv a tubewose!!

This perfume is a wild one.

First you get what I'd describe as Drano under the thumb of tuberose. This odd refreshing + narcotic combo lasts some time.

Next, after the wintergreen/drano thing burns off, I find myself smelling like some ultrariche milled soap tubereuse. I love soapy fragrances and you cant' do better …

Upon application of this fragrance, I learnt that tuberose is not my smell, at all. It had enormous staying power, which is good and bad. Bad because I wanted to be rid of the aroma, but good, because if you like tuberose, you may love Tubereuse Criminelle.

It had easily identifiable layers, and softened after about an hour - much like the opening of petals to reveal the gift of the …

The opening of this one is original and distinct: like grape jelly and eucalyptus. Medicinal notes that contrast the sticky sweetness of tuberose. But as it dries down, it loses that potency, and becomes more like all the other SL white florals (i.e.: Fleurs d'Oranger, Sarrasins...). Which is why I wouldn't buy it again.
