Tuberose Scent Trend

tuberoseThere is a new star ingredient that is popping up in most of the blockbuster fragrance launches for Autumn. And it isn’t the expected Bulgarian Rose, iris or even jasmine sambac. It’s a tiny white flower that grows in elongated spikes and blooms at night. Tuberose, a plant native to Mexico, is suddenly in every perfumer’s palette. You’ll see it featured in Chanel’s upcoming Gabrielle, Gucci’s Bloom and Ralph Lauren’s new Woman scent.

tuberoseTuberose, also known as Polianthes tuberosa, emits a heavy, sweet scent and not surprisingly has a long history in the world of perfumery. It has been grown and harvested in the South of France for centuries. It’s interesting to note that tuberose does not bear any relation to the rose. It’s name comes from the fact that the plant’s slender stem grows a tube resembling a rootstock. White and creamy-pink flowers, each with six sword-shaped petals, bloom in the evening.

tuberoseThe flower has been used predominantly in many different religious ceremonies over the centuries. It is customary for the bride to wear a Tuberose wreath in traditional Hawaiian weddings. They are also used in many Indian weddings.

“Perfumery trends work in cycles,” explains Roman Poquet, Senior Fragrance Development Manager at Firmenich in New York City. “Perfumers will be inspired to experiment with a certain floral note and this creates a trend. We’re currently still in a rose scent trend. I think it is because perfumers have found new ways of making the note modern and edgy. There are some roses that have an almost fruity or spicy character.” We now seeing the beginning of the tuberose trend.

Here are some current fragrances that use tuberose particularly well.

    Thank you for the explanation. I steer clear of “floral” scents, but this one, if spicy, sounds delicious! I learn so much from your newsletters. Thank you.

    I love it! Finally, a rose by any other name DOES smell different than a rose that is NOT a rose and blooms at NIGHT! Incredible! These “edgy, almost fruity, spicy character” notes sound like a symphony of sexy, modern appeal! I would definitely try any and ALL of these scents, but I think I’ll stick within my budget and go with Woman from Ralph Lauren. Romance is still one of my favorite scents of all time! So, I bet Woman spells fantastic! I won’t lie though, I would LOVE to try the Ferragamo Signornia Misteriosa. Reminds me of my my mother.

    If I have been introduced too this scent I’m not recalling it. I’m always willing to try new scents because perfume makes me feel I am completely put together for the day or night, @ManualMoffit
