A provocative yet innocent-seeming flower.
Pear - tuberose - orange blossom - cedar
[the olfactory signature]
The spiced breath of red berries, like that hint of excitement at the prospect of a promising night.
Behind a fruity veil of pear, spiced with a pinch of red berries, a tuberose reveals itself slowly, with a surprising lack of pretence. Becoming creamier as hours pass, it fills out a welcoming corsage of cedar, amber and a hint of musk.
In 1937, Paul Vacher signed a floral trilogy, in which Tubéreuse found its place between the very chic Iris and the terribly suave Jasmin. Tubéreuse, forerunner to many fragrances around the same theme, was tinted with a hyper-feminine touch, which fitted Le Galion’s signature perfectly; keeping up to their standard even in a troubled decade.
[a word from our perfumer]
“In perfumery, the tuberose note is often used in an attention-grabbing way, to great effect. This one truly carries Le Galion’s DNA, at once very chic and capable of holding back. The pear and raspberry accord brings a fruity facet, before things take a floral turn with the rose and orange blossom, whose nuances support the tuberose. Meanwhile, the musk wraps everything up in the base notes.”
