Le Labo’s Tubereuse 40 (2006)

Let’s say you have a bottle filled with 70% water and 30% vinegar, Le Labo will call this concoction “Water 2”. Just to make a point.

I got this bottle quite early in my olfactory journey and I didn’t know what tuberose smelled like. Tubereuse 40 has tuberose in it, but like a bad group photo, it is out of focus in the back row with someone a foot taller in the front covering half of its face.

T40 is fresh, green, and filled with scent of orange flowers and a little bit of oakmoss. (People who still remember that I’ve said I quite like Fleur D’Oranger 27, T40 is much better).

When my friend said he’s going to New York for a business trip, I asked him to help me get a bottle. He came back and his face still had an expression of disbelief of how much a Le Labo City Exclusive had cost.
