From Master Perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena, Tuberosis was launched in 2019 and is a unisex floral fragrance that features notes of Indian carnation, tuberose absolute, coriander, spices and musks. It is an eau de parfum, edp.

From Jean-Claude Ellena: On a pleasant autumn evening, in the golden light, the cold suddenly swept over me. Winter would be upon us at dawnOpening the front door, I turned to look one last time at the last stem of the tuberose flowers, a gift from a summer that had survived, thinking that in the morning I would go and pick it up to get drunk for a few days more on its smell. Since then, at a time when artificial lights respond to the night, the tuberose spreads with its soft voice a scent of jasmine, plum and spices. It is a whisper, like a breeze, that will not tire. And every night, around midnight, its voice goes out, so we can wait for the same moment the next day. Its smell is like his life, programmed. There is something in this flower of the figure of Shéhérazade that every night tells a story of escaping death. She did it so well that her story, still alive, has become a perfume. 

Laboratorio Olfattivo Tuberosis Reviews

From Fragrantica (Esxence 2019 Tuberosis Laboratorio Olfattivo Fragrance Review): Very often, the perfumes you liked so much at a perfume fair or presentation, reveal different facets and are not even that beautiful any more when you smell them at home. The climate is different, the excitement is gone, but my best perfume of the Esxence 2019 show has remained as great as when I smelled it for the first time at the Laboratorio Olfacttivo stand at Esxence. It is Tuberosis, created by Jean-Claude Ellena for the brand's Masters' Collection. All four new perfumes are remarkably well-done, but Tuberosis is simply the best soliflore tuberose I've smelled, not only at the fair, but in general, and I must admit that I am not a big fan of tuberose. On the other hand, attempts to avoid this haunting sensual facet in perfumes and make tuberose different, ended in simplification or even distortion. I do not like bitter aromatic tuberose perfumes.

Jean-Claude Ellena's tuberose is a refreshingly green and mellow white soliflore fragrance with everything appealing tuberose could offer. According to Roberto Drago, the owner of Laboratorio Olfattivo, the perfumer took his time and waited to observe the flower bloom and gradually demonstrate all its nuances at different stages. The fragrance literally blooms on the skin; starting from the juicy delicate greenness of tightly closed buds (first you feel their resentful resistance–wait and you will see!), it gracefully unfolds, caressing the senses with its soft and yet bright white beauty. It smells so pure, combining opposite olfactory qualities – fresh and warm, soft and crisp, like a real flower in a morning garden. This tuberose was not squeezed and processed. Is it seductive? Immensely. Is it noticeable? Very much. I feel its refreshing presence throughout the day, as a "what a wonderful life" reminder.

I am so glad that Mr. Ellena finally justified the tuberose flower, clearing it of all the  "dirty" stereotypes, such as rotten, foody, cloying, coconutty; the flower of sex appeal with no shame and many bad habits. I do not mind dirty scents, but tuberose has not seen any escape from this cliche and became boring.

Tuberosis is a very natural smelling perfume, yet remains a perfume–Mr. Ellena winks at me every time I notice more than a single flower in his creation: an orchestra of lily–of–the–valleys, a green meadow, a perfect hand-cream, even the sea breeze...
