At last, Serge Lutens’ mythical Tubéreuse Criminelle makes a break from the Palais Royal in this season’s limited edition!
Its surprisingly addictive minty-camphoraceous top notes are due to the Tiger Balm-ish smell of methyl salicylate, a molecule naturally present in the tuberose… Instead of taming their fierceness, Serge Lutens asked the perfumer Christopher Sheldrake to unleash it. But after this olfactory assault, the tuberose opens up its creamy heart, made richer still with its white floral sisters jasmine and orange blossom, contrasted with the green-rosy, indolic notes of hyacinth. A rich oriental base anchors it to the skin, the styrax underlining the almost leathery undertones of the tuberose, nutmeg and clove boosting its slow burn…
Thus, the diva of the garden lives up to her reputation: first a slap, then a kiss… The rest, we’ll leave entirely up to you. What We Think A dynamically minty take on tuberose for all the camphor lovers out there.
