The Pre-Columbian Indians of Mexico first domesticated the Tuberose, one of the most fragrant of all flowers. It was one of the first plants introduced to the Old World from Mexico.
By the late 19th century, notable quantities of Tuberose were under cultivation in Grasse, France, where the absolute of the flowers was extracted by the "enfleurage" method. Besides France, the plants are currently cultivated in Morocco, Egypt and India.
Tuberose Absolute has a well-established reputation for use in fine fragrances and perfumery. This sensuous deep orange-golden brown oil has a warm, very sweet, "plump" and most intoxicating floral aroma with peach leaf and soft spice-like background notes.
Our Tuberose Absolute is a perfumer's specialty oil and not to be missed. We highly recommend this one!
Aromatherapy Uses: Useful for overcoming intimacy blocks, introversion, nervousness, stress, and negative attitudes; benefits intuition, creativity, sensuality, peace of mind, a positive resolve.
Physical Appearance: Very viscous golden/orange substance that is solid at room temperature and requires special use instructions to blend.
Customer Reviews for Tuberose Absolute
- Dirty Review by Liesel Asgard
Smells like turmeric. No floral notes, no sweetness, just spicy and dirt like. In fact, I think I was maybe given turmeric by mistake.
Notes from the oil room at Eden Botanicals: We're very sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your Tuberose Absolute. As you may know, many absolutes do not smell particularly good directly out of the bottle because they are so highly concentrated. Only when they are diluted are you able to perceive their true fragrance. Perhaps try diluting your Tuberose down in a carrier oil such as Jojoba. If you are still unhappy with this oil or if you believe you have in fact received the wrong oil, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be more than happy to help!

- The Best! Review by RitaMeterMaid
- This is the best tuberose I've smelled so far. Exotic, pungent with an earthy, minty spice emanating from its base. Tuberose has interesting effects on other florals, and adds a complex, sophisticated note. Eden's is very easy to work with, liquifies quick when warmed and can be diluted down with perfumers alcohol. I also like that it is transparent, others I've had look cloudy/waxy in alcohol.

- very strong very sexy Review by lisa
- This is an animalic tuberose. Very earthy and strong. The bright notes are very subtle, as they should be. This is a very true oil. (Posted on 5/23/13)
- Herbaceous Review by Liezl
- Upon dilution, I found this tuberose to be less floral-like than I had hoped. It is a tuberose which is more earthy and herbaceous with a slightly bitter coffee note. (Posted on 5/18/13)
- Voluptuous floral Review by Sara
- The tuberose absolute is one of my favorites, narcotic and slightly animalic. I like this cut with a bit of jojoba on its own as a perfume, and also in blends. (Posted on 5/1/13)
- Tuberose Abs, delicate floral with spice and smoke Review by Hemla
- This Tuberose Abs is absolutely beautiful: a delicate floral, with a spicey, smokey - not burnt presence. It has a special animal aspect to the floral, sweet with some woody nuances coming out towards drydown. That's at least what I detected in my evaluation of it. I love it, and since I understand tuberoses can varry widely in thier smokey/burnt aspect, I am not risking trying other sources at this point, because I am utterly in love with Eden's tuberose.

- Intense and Delicious Review by Dana
- This tuberose absolute is an intense, rich and delicious combination of sweet, floral and spice; it stands as an amazing base note to several of my ceremonial and aphrodisiac blends. (Posted on 4/29/13)
