For this creation, Guerlain offers an enchanting new interpretation of the Tuberose, a precious, hypnotic and sensual flower, giving it an unexpected freshness. Still imbued with sap and water, it bursts forth from the very first notes, a real explosion of freshness with the green accents of a freshly picked flower. The sensual and luminous impression left by vanilla and vetiver notes provides a stirring contrast.
Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk have taken a bold creative approach to Joyeuse Tubéreuse’s composition. They wanted to surprise us with a freshly picked Tuberose, imbued with water as if after a tropical downpour. A real homage to the majesty of the white flowers, which are usually so heady and voluptuous.
Joyeuse Tubéreuse does not disappoint. This is NOT a tuberose along the lines of Malle’s head-spinning Carnal Flower or Luten’s sexy and furry Tubérose Criminelle. This is a softer, gentler, and much fresher tuberose, along the lines of a Jean-Claude Ellena sheer and elegant watercolor composition. The intention of Guerlain’s Master Perfumers Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk was to create the scent of a tuberose right after a tropical rainstorm, and it is indeed that.
Definitely a unisex fragrance, this is a perfume that will keep you noticed without upstaging. Joyeuse Tubéreuse is indeed very joyous; an easy-to-wear beautiful fragrance that would take you from the office to dinner and dancing and on into the night.
It opens bright and watery, a pure tuberose mixed with a beautiful sparkling green-leaf freshness that strips away much of the indole and lactic aspects of heavier tuberose perfumes. Joyeuse Tubéreuse is a wonderful, bubbly and summery white floral that may not have you swooning, but rather will keep you extremely happy and smiling throughout the warm weather.
Definitely a unisex fragrance, this is a perfume that will keep you noticed without upstaging. Joyeuse Tubéreuse is indeed very joyous; an easy-to-wear beautiful fragrance that would take you from the office to dinner and dancing and on into the night. The fragrance lasts and lasts with that classic Guerlain floral-vanilla vibe that the company does so very well. Not the classic ‘Guerlainade’ blast that you might expect, but absolutely recognizable as a Guerlain and gorgeous none the less.
