Tuberose as a fine wine. Tuberose as a syrupy reduction, thick and non-sugary sweet, drizzled on my dessert or mixed into my cocktail. This has a beautifully round, rich, velvety feel, something I can taste as I smell it. I can see why the Bois de Jasmin reviews of Aftelier perfumes are more poetry than analysis. This is powerful, transportive stuff.


Unique, totally unlike …

This, on me, is a fully, rich floral. I would avoid saying 'with earthy undertones' since I generally categorise earthy notes to be patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss and dark musk. The cepes note here, while deep, does not have that slightly fusty feel that these notes have for me - it’s very 'clear', if that makes sense. It blends very well with the benzoin to create a very …Read more

This reminds me of another natural fragrance, DSH Rose Vert. Like RV, it begins in a tangle of sharp greens, which dries down to dirt--but in a good way. Also like RV, the floral note is very sheer. This is a great outdoorsy sort of smell, but I wouldn't wear it as perfume.

Bought a sample of this from Aftelier because the Now Smell This list of 100 perfumes you must try got me interested. Sometimes people write saying "I really wanted to like this but . . ." In my case I really didn't want to like this because it is so expensive, but I have to say, I am just rocked by it. The tuberose dominates but the mushroom is perceptible, more so, as you …Read more

I only had a sample of this, but the packaging looks fine on the site. After hearing that artificial musk, like what is in my former fave Narciso Rodriquez for Her, is really terrible for you, I searched for a musky, non-chemical fragrance. I tried this. The Tubersose part is lovely, pretty flowers, and the Cepes side is earthy and sexy. It is fantastic and just what I was looking for.

An original combination of notes, in the best tradition of Aftelier. The carnal, heady creaminess of tuberose and the earthy, animalic persona of porcini mushrooms. A very unusual match! On my skin, however, there is something lacking - the scent feels flat overall and I feel the need for a third element to add some fire. I am pretty sure the reason for that is the presence of sandalwood, which …Read more

I would not call this an easy to wear fragrance. My chemistry doesn't do well with tuberose, but I somehow manage to carry this off...I think it's the earthy, musky, mushroom scent that does it for me. I'll admit it - I like some mainstream fragrances and my favorite notes (amber, tobacco, leather, spices, woods, smoke) seem to be quite trendy...yet, still I strive for something …Read more

I have been sampling Cepes et Tubereuse for some time now determinedly trying to find it's elusive appeal. It's time to wave the white flag. Mushrooms win, tuberose loses. Yes, I can detect the tuberose in there, but I can't shake the musty, dirty mushroom note. I like earthy scents and tried for so long because I felt I *should* be able to appreciate this...but I can't. …Read more

In other tuberose perfumes I have tried, the tuberose eventually dominates every other note. That is not the case with Cepes and Tuberose. The savory, earthy scent of the mushrooms is a good match for the often too-heady tuberose and the result is a strangely mouth-watering appetizer that lasts well and invites attention.
