Introducing 'Tuberose In Silk' Eau de Parfum

January 22, 2020


Discover the newest limited edition fragrance, 'Tuberose In Silk' Eau de Parfum, a celebration of the voluptuous tuberose fragrance.

A balance between purity and sensuous spirit, we explore the contrast within this unique and natural floral scent with our newest By Request fragrance.

Much revered in the perfumery world, tuberose is a white floral with the status of being the most opulent and sultry of all the night-blooming flowers. Its rich velvet petals offer some of the most feminine notes in the fragrance wheel; powerful, seductive and impressively elegant. Yet it also has a sensual quality, sometimes described as having an almost carnal scent; intoxicating and dramatic.

Tuberose is also an ingredient that is often referenced in the Floris fragrance archives and perfumery books, and is a perfume oil that we have continued to work with as part of our bespoke perfumery service for a number of years now. The desire to reintroduce this unique flower as a leading note has led to ‘Tuberose In Silk’. Created at 89 Jermyn Street by Edward Bodenham, Floris Perfumery Director and Floris family member, and Floris in house perfumer Penny Ellis, who have personally hand-poured a small batch of this scent for limited release.

Edward comments:

"I continue a long term project to explore the singular floral fragrance notes that are such an important part of Floris’s fragrance history, and slowly over a number of years define their presence within our collection. Through artisanal methods of creation and blending, I’m taking natural, traditional notes and am bringing a touch of modernity, whilst using the latest and most sustainable sources of ingredients.

To enhance ‘Tuberose in Silk’ I have sourced a natural tuberose absolute from the South of India, used here in a high concentration.

In order to balance the composition and bring out the sensuality of the flower, we have delicately introduced the intriguing camphor note that is evident in the fragrance’s darker qualities, working alongside the intensity of the tuberose. The arrived version of the scent imagines a powerful sultry spirit, content and delicately wrapped in gentle silk."
