White Tubéreuse

Posted in

Launched in 2014 by Réminiscence, White Tubéreuse is part of the Historie De Fleurs Collection, along with its sister fragrance Love Rose, French costume jewelry brand Réminiscence.
A beautiful, summer tuberose, it opens with a nose-tingling sparkle that introduces a note of sweet, floral ylang ylang. The rich banana facets of ylang ylang make the opening tropical and summery. The ylang ylang leads to a heart of tuberose that’s creamy and buttery, fruity and fleshy. This is not a loud, diva tuberose in a too-short mini skirt and stiletto heels but it’s not a tamed or muted tuberose either. It’s heady and erotic all right, but it’s tasteful - a tuberose that any age can wear.

If you love tuberose, you’ll love this phase, but you’ll love it more when cinnamon gives it a warm hum. Tuberose and cinnamon? Oh, yeah. Sounds a bit odd, sounds a bit strange but whoever put these two together is a genius…oh, wait that would be Fabrice Pellegrin of Firmenich! Over time, the cinnamon fades, but the tuberose stays and settles on a woody/musky base and dries down to a creamy, smooth skin scent. And, being an EdP concentration, it lasts and lasts, keeping those summer memories alive.

White Tubéreuse has a carefree, easygoing attitude that is in line with the Réminiscence brand. It doesn’t evolve much and it isn’t demanding. It’s just an olfactory expression of pleasure. And, while I associate it most with memories of summer, it really can be worn any time of year.

In fact, writing this now reminds me that now would be a good time to spritz on a little White Tubéreuse, pour myself a glass of rosé and enjoy the lingering days of summer.
