As if mole and vanilla wasn’t enough of a gift to the world, Tuberose with its heady, seductive aroma, was first introduced from Mexico. The night bloomer is a high demand absolute for natural perfumers as it lends a valuable blending aspect with its honeyed apricot profile. Earlier in the the 20th century, a favorited carnation type perfume contained a significant amount of tuberose. It was heavily used in other classic perfumes as well as in hair oil, lipstick and perfume soaps but usage fell dramatically in the 1970s.
I’ve carried tuberose most of our years in operation but it was my first chance encounter with the fresh, white flower that laid the groundwork for that intimate connection that was lacking for me with this beautiful oil. While shopping in a Berkeley grocery store, I caught that heady, apricot scent and knew what it was and how many bouquets were coming home. Our apothecary was perfumed long into the week and its unwavering scent is what galvanized me to make our rich scented Tuberose Flower Butter which uses both the spicy Tuberose wax and the absolute. I also hand formulate Tuberose Eye cream that is possibly the most effective eye cream on the market.
Suggested uses: Tuberose excellent for a natural perfumer’s palette as it blends well with Citrus, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Ylang ylang and Sandalwood essential oils. Tuberose oil is effective for fading dark circles under eyes and reduce fine lines.
