Despite its name, the Tuberose doesn't have bear any relation to the rose, but its name is said to derive from the plant’s slender stem from which a tube grows that resembles rootstock. This stem can grow up to 90cm tall and bears flowers of a pink-cream shade, each with six sword shaped petals.
This small, pale pink blossoming beauty is a night-blooming flower. Because of its sweet, heavy scent, the Tuberose has a long history in the world of perfumery. Its scent is so intoxicating that, in Victorian times, young girls were not allowed to smell a tuberose up close, for fear they might orgasm!
The scent from these fragrant blossoms is so powerful that it can fill a room and continue to exude its scent for days after picking.*
