Grown under organic conditions and extracted using enfleurage in Colombia
Clearly this exquisite oil is one of the most delightful creatures on the planet. This oil is exactly the waft of a tuberose.
This is not an absolute made from the pomade, as you will find listed in Arctanders guide, but it’s made from the tuberose enfleurage—and reflects the true nature and odor of the flower.
Sonnet 3 Tuberose
As I was young my mom planted some flowers
In front of our old wooden house in springs
In my memory they were peony, China rose…
But what I loved the most was the tuberose
In summer night it's a nice time to me
You could sit in yard to listen the night birds
Singing on cliffs, insects singing in bushes
And look at the moon moving in night skies
However, while your heart was beating at pace
With insects singing and in the sudden
From nowhere floating the rays of fragrance
In the moon a bunch of tuberose blossoms
As these flowers always bloom in moon nights
Your great poem may be living in its fragrance

Arctander’s monograph of the botanical and the scent is fitting:
The tuberose plant is a tender, tall, slim perennial, a native of Central America where wild growing species can be found. It’s name refers to its bulb, although it’s not really technically a tuber in botanical terms. And it has nothing to do with roses. Tuberose is related to Narcissus and Jonquil.
The odor is extremely heavy-sweet, floral-honey-like, with a distinct oily-fatty undertone.
While Tuberose absolute is not used in aromatherapy, it has plenty of psychic and subtle energy uses. It has a definite narcotic effect, and some feel it can calm strong emotions, promote motivation and enthusiasm, and invite love into one’s life.
For anger, irritability and frustration, consider blending with bergamot, geranium, ylang ylang, jasmine, benzoin, peru balsam, sweet orange and rose.
