Tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa) absolute, if you have not smelled it, is sweet, somewhat spicy, rich and tenacious.
I have totally fallen in love with Tuberose absolute. Hands down. I have been working quite a bit with it, blending with Ylang Ylang and Jasmine. I could nearly drop Tuberose into a base oil and call it a perfume by itself, but I won’t.
My goal is to include Tuberose in a blend that I will call my signature scent. These things take time, patience and practice. I am working on all of the above.
A little background: Tuberose is generally not recommended for aromatherapy use, but is recommended as an exotic addition to natural perfume. It is considered a heart (middle) note in a perfume blend. Tuberose is a native of Central America, where it is found growing wild. Oh…how I would love that!
I haven’t researched this, but it is also my understanding that tuberose is used in some confectionaries and beverages. I am in love with Lavender and Chamomile tea, I may have to check into the prospect of Tuberose too.
