Latin Name: Polianthes tuberosa
Country of Origin: India
Method of Extraction: Solvent extracted
The Tuberose absolute is a golden/orange soft, waxy mass displaying an immensely rich, powerful, exotic, sweet, heavy floral bouquet with a spicy, waxy, balsamic undertone of excellent tenacity. It is used in natural perfumery and sacred essences. Inhaled, it is strengthening to the emotions, is a narcotic and an aphrodisiac.
How to Blend: A very little tuberose goes a long way in a blend. To liquefy Tuberose, pop the bottle into a Ziploc bag, seal, and drop into a cup of very hot water. You may at that point want to add an equal amount of jojoba, to keep it in a liquid state.
Note: Tuberose absolute from India is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to procure as the harvest of tuberose flowers has been affected by weather and other problems. We have seen the price double since the last time we ordered.
