Transcendent Tuberose Absolute is rare to find in its pure form. Named for the tubular shape of the roots of the Tuberose plant, Tuberose Absolute is known in East Indian legend as the "Mistress of the Night" because of its powerful love-potion properties. This exquisite essence produces a sultry, tantalizing floral fragrance that is used in some of the world's most eminent perfumes. The ancient Aztecs used tuberose, or "bone flower," in ceremonies, and the Hawaiian people continue to use Tuberose to add fragrant florals to traditional Hawaiian leis.

Euphoric Tuberose Absolute is cultivated from the flowers of the succulent and sensuous Polianthes tuberosa, a plant closely related to the Agave species. The creamy white, lily-like flowers produce a potent, sensually-sultry essence that exudes honey and heady florals. Used extensively in perfumes, Tuberose absolute is an amorous ablution that has been used cross-culturally by the Aztecs, Hawaiians, and East Indians for its aroma of redolent relaxation.
For a luxurious, enraptured addition to the present moment, harness the sweet-smelling power of Tuberose Absolute. It invites an aura of euphoria and conjures that which is splendidly sensual. It merriments the mind and scatters stressful thoughts to the four corners of the earth.
"Tuberose is sensuous with a strong, radiant quality. The fragrance embraces the person wearing it, complementing his or her character. In stressful situations, requiring strength and close attention to another's needs, essential tuberose oil protects your energy and personal boundaries."
~ Susanne Fischer-Rizzi, The Complete Aromatherapy Handbook: Essential Oils for Radiant Health
"Tuberose is for the finding of the truth in truths long forgotten, for bringing hopes and dreams and prayers to their rightful place, and in doing so it integrates the highest levels of the ego within spiritual wonderment."
~ Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
"And the jessamine faint, and the sweet tuberose, the sweetest flower for the scent that blows."
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
