This is a classic spring floral from Grasse with notes of muguet, lilac, hyacinth. Just a sheer pleasure to wear, fresh and clean and alive without any unpleasant passing notes or synthetic smells. Wonderful natural and pure. Heavenly to me. A well-kept secret.

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Nuit de Tubereuse

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2012

Nuit de Tubereuse to me is a sheer, sexy, aquatic floral, not overly tuberosy, so Fracas/Carnal Flower/Tuberuese Criminelle/Beyond Love fans be forewarned. This is a woody, haunting, misty scent that remind me of flowers growing on a shady forest floor. It really lives up to the Nuit part. An SA at Barney's spray some of this on me, as it was one of his favorites, and overtime the scent just …Read more

Jan/31/2012

Notes: musk, lily, green notes

This is one of the original clean laundry musk oils, very soothing and pure without being either overly soapy or powdery. A wonderful scent for a sensitive environments like certain offices. China rain could easily be worn by men, women, or children as it really just smells like freshly cleaned laundry from the dryer. And dirt cheap. Try it.

Dior Diorissimo is my go-to pretty princess scent. From 1956, she is very much a product of her wholesome, innocent era. She goes well with pearls and a sweater set.
Warning, you may be accidentally transformed into a princess you want when you wear her. Princess Diana, Princess Grace,
This fragrance is an obvious choice for a spring or summer wedding scent.

Jan/24/2012

Top notes: orange, coriander, caraway and amalfi lemon
Midddle notes: rosemary, carnation and cardamom
Base note: patchouli
The first thing you notice about Clarins fragrances is that their bottles look like facial toner, or makeup remover and not perfume, so the first sniff is always very "blind". You don't really know what you are sniffing, or what you are …
