Following vanilla, amber, rose, vetiver, patchouli and jasmine, the tuberose flower is now highlighted.

The citruses reveal withelegance and refinement a new character of this flower.

Café Tuberosa echoes the story of the first Cologne Absolue launched in the Avant-Garde Collection, Vanille Insensée.

Vanille Insensée takes us to the turmoil of New York. Entering a speakeasy, he identifies the wake of his perfume. Suddenly, he recognizes her and realizes that she continues to wear the Cologne Absolue that he wore before she decided to leave him without giving any explanation severalyears before.

A few days later, he received a mysterious letter inviting him to come to Venice to an appointment at 'Café Tuberosa'. Abruptly, he understands that she invites him in her home town and that they are ready to start all over again.

Café Tuberosa story
He had received a mysterious invitation to Venice just a few days after that unforgettable night. He was wondering what this was all about, then he recognized 'Café Tuberosa'. There she was, staring at him. Suddenly it was clear. In a moment they would have the chance tostart over again.

Café Tuberosa
[ tuberose from India ]

Its name refers to its root system and has nothing to do with rose. Polianthes Tuberosa is a small white flower, the same class as jasmine or orange blossom. In India, they gave it a nickname, “Rajanighanda” which means “fragance of the night”.

Considered at the same time carnal and animalic, creamy and smooth, this tiny little flower is harvested in the south of France but also in India.

Mythical ingredient, the tuberose has been used in perfume since the 18th century. In Grasse they used to extract the absolu with a particular extraction process, the “enfleurage” which consists in enrobing flowers in fat to trap the olfactive molecules. Its smell is quite floral but also very animalic and vegetal.

Café Tuberosa
[ bergamot from Calabria ]

Citrus Bergamia, the Bergamot Orange is a fragrant fruit, with the size of an orange a nd a yellow color similar to a lemon. It is inedible, but extracts are used for scent food, perfume and cosmetics.

The word comes from the word bergamotta in Italian, originating from Bergamo, a town in Italy.

Citrus bergamia is a small tree that blossoms during the winter. The fruit is not edible. The juice tastes less sour than lemon, but more bitter than grapefruit.

Its production is limited to the Ionan Sea coastal areas of the province of Reggio di Calabra where the temperature is favorable.

Café Tuberosa
[ coffee expresso accord ]

Coffee is native from tropical Africa, particularly Ethiopia and Sudan. Today, it is cultivated in more than 70 countries. Coffee seeds were first roasted in Arabia around the 15th century. The na me “coffee ” is derived from the Ottoman turkish “khave” a nd “qahwah” in Arabic. Coffee is today considered as the world's most valuable crop.

Coffee species are mainly robusta or arabic a but derived from these are more than 60 varieties. In perfume, we use more and more the coffee smell to recreate a warm, delicious and quite addictive fragrance.

Unfortunately, coffee essential oil is forbidden in perfume as it provokes cancer. Perfumers use their raw materials palette to recreate a gourmand and sweet coffee scent.
