Kat Burki is a line that prides themselves for their “modern take on classics”. I’ve only tried one fragrance from the line, but I see this. When I tried Tubéreuse, I was reminded of a modern Piguet Fracas.
Tubéreuse is a soliflore opening with as a citrus white floral with peachy aldehydes. The heart is a peachy white floral – mostly gardenia and tuberose. It’s a warm, creamy white floral, instead of a “cool” one. Tubéreuse dries down to something that is softer than the heart with an addition of a sheer musk that reminds me of By Kilian Beyond Love.
Tubéreuse is a white floral, that’s for sure. But, it’s not as heavy as the other ones that it is related to and this is what makes it appear more modern. However, it’s still going to bring to mind glamour.
Notes listed include peach nectar, orange, green leaves, tuberose, gardenia, jasmine, amber, rosewood and musk. Launched 2013.
Or if you like perfumes like Penhaligon’s Ellenisia, Lili Bermuda Passion Flower, HEELEY Bubblegum Chic, Piguet Fracas, By Kilian Beyond Love and/or Michael Kors Michael Kors. Actually, this would be a great “up-grade” for those that wear Michael Kors. Being a white floral, many will associate it with the feminine.
Projection is average. Longevity is above average.
The 3.4 oz retails for $95 at Nordstrom.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Peachy white floral. It’s good but I don’t need another tuberose in my collection. If you are looking for a tuberose soliflore, this one is worth sampling.
