SOTD: Parfumerie Generale Tubereuse Couture
I've been experiencing intermittent wafts of tuberose all day. Good tuberose. Something that didn't exist, in my book, before I found this fragrance.
Clean tuberose always made me envision Annoying Women. I don't know why; it must remind me of someone. (Maybe an annoying grade school teacher?) And indolic tuberose was, well, indolic.
This perfume somehow manages to avoid both pitfalls. I think that the ylang ylang may be what's melding with the indolic notes and keeping them from making me uneasy. But they're there, and so is something close to a gourmand note, and that keeps it from being Clean Tuberose Of Annoyance.
I posted about this one before. Then, I was dubious but being drawn in, and planning to buy a decant. Now, I'm remembering the advice of a commenter on Now Smell This to "buy a damn bottle" when you love something.
