Tom Ford Tubereuse Nue was released in 2021 as part of the Private Blend line of fragrances. From the manufacturer's description: Tubereuse Nue conjures the fresh petals of night-blooming tuberose and jasmine as they sway in the moonlight, exuding extravagant sensuality. Rising to a rhapsody of unparalleled pleasure, spiced Akigalawood and Timut pepper add an illicit potency to this mystical dance. A soft, sensual blanket of musk captures the erotic afterglow, promising the mood - and the longing - endures.
Tom Ford is quoted as saying that: "Tubereuse Nue merges lush florals with spices, mimicking the surprising duality of night-blooming tuberose, a fresh flower with an intense aura awakened at night."
Tubereuse Nue features top notes of Sichaun pepper, jasmine and lily; middle notes of tuberose, benzoin, styrax and cacao; and base notes of suede, musk, tonka bean and agarwood. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
From Colognoisseur: When I heard there was a Tom Ford Private Blend featuring tuberose, I expected their version on this lighter type. What I received when I got my sample of Tubereuse Nue was a throwback to the earlier days. One of the things I often wonder is what would a modern perfumer do with modern materials in a vintage-ish style. Perfumers Shyamala Maisondieu and Yann Vasnier design this with that in mind. The other thing which happens is they do not dumb down the skanky indoles at the heart of the tuberose. That rich seductive tuberose appears right from the start. The perfumers interrogate it with a set of spices. Black pepper, the Szechuan pepper variant called Timut pepper, and coriander ask the white flower for her greener virtues. The sharpness of the black pepper along with the grapefruity heat of the Timut pepper find it through harmony. The coriander provides a woody undercurrent to the early moments. The heart is that deeply satisfying opulent white floral accord as jasmine joins the tuberose. This is what I enjoy the most about tuberose when it reaches this level. For the final stages, the modern ingredients re-appear as the perfumers form an ambered leather accord. Around the leather is the biodegraded patchouli ingredient Akigalawood, the ambery musky Sylkolide, and another animalic synthetic musk. The Sylkolide predominates but the leather and the musks find that indolic core of the white flowers and amplify it. Tuberuese Nue has 14-16 hour longevity and above average sillage.
From Fragrantica: I did not expect to love this. It’s a heavy white floral , it’s sex in a bottle yet it’s very sophisticated. It has an old school vibe but it’s made modern if that makes any sense. It’s dense , powdery , heavy but airy light, it’s WHITE , SWEET , MILKY fluffy , aldehyde vibe going on and a vanilla drydown due to tonka and benzoin. I am out of my mind about this one. People compare it to fracas but more modern. All I can say it was love at first sniff. And I am not a tuberose nor a white floral fan. I don’t mind neither but aslo they aren’t my favourite perfumes , but THIS ,,,, it’s animalistic and masterpiece to me. It also has a suede note. I do not detect oud at all. But some woodyness for sure. It’s a little bit dry at times but I don’t mind that.
