Guerlain has added a new fragrance in their L'Art et La Matière collection, a library meant to reach out to connoisseurs...
Joyeuse Tubéreuse (Joyous Tuberose) is the paradoxical composition of a flower considered normally to dispense a heavy, narcotic scent. By contrast, the house imagined a tuberose drenched by tropical rain, picked right after the passage of a downpour.
The concept is not new for the house, if you think of it as an Après L'Ondée for a tuberose.
Perfumers Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk worked on an "unexpected freshness" effect for the floral scent. The eau de parfum is said to smell sappy, dewy and green. The typically sultry floral has now become "innocent", "airy" and "luminous."
The unisex green floral composition opens in the top on green notes followed by a heart of tuberose, lily and jasmine sambac. The base creates a contrast thanks to sandalwood, vetiver and vanilla.
Price: 198€ for 75 ml.
