The newest scent from Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle, Carnal Flower, used tuberose to create a fragrance that is very close to the natural scent of the Mexican herb.
The fragrance features top notes of bergamot, melon and eucalyptus, middle notes of ylang-ylang and jasmine and a drydown of white musk cocktail, coconut, orange blossom absolute and tuberose absolute.
Launching in December, Carnal Flower took about two years to create and features more natural tuberose absolute than any other fragrance on the market. The prices of this new fragrance range from $155 for a 50-ml. spray to $230 for a 100-ml. spray.
