Tuberose In Perfumery
The Janus Flower
Native to Mexico, the tuberose found the perfect adoptive home in India, where its highly fragrant, waxy-petaled flowers are used as decoration or offerings. Its potent, heady, opulent scent is often associated with a carnal, erotic femininity. Discover every facet of the voluptuous flower by journeying through botany, art, gastronomy, history, agriculture and chemistry without overlooking, of course, perfume and perfumers.
