Heady, intense, and allegedly seductive: tuberose is used in fine perfumery to add a bewitchingly suave note to accords. Its facets are quite the olfactory smorgasbord, with scents of honey and jasmine to facets reminiscent of sweet fruit. Erotic, animalic facets intermingle in a carnal note of sweet excess.
Fracas, by couturier Paul Piguet, is a tuberose soliflore. By its success, it marks the end of the war in France, and the return of opulence. It will be worn by many Hollywood stars like Marlene Dietrich, Kim Basinger, Sharon Stone, Madonna and Naomi Campbell.
