In C for Women, rose and jasmine absolute join with violet and tuberose to create a buttery, high calorie tuberose that performs the sleight-of-hand trick of being both fresh and rich. It opens with a green herbaceousness of coriander, petit grain, and tagete (marigold). This opening salvo combines with bright bergamot and mandarin, along with cognac oil, steam-distilled from dried fermented grapes and imparting a subtle fruity note.
After the chorus of white florals sing their high-note tunes, cistus, amber, vanilla, and tonka cloak everything in a mink-rich decadence that veers on the gourmand. If you want a multi-dimensional tuberose that, like a femme fatale on her day off, has retired her gun and holster and decided to be well-rounded and friendly instead of dangerous, lush and sensuous C for Women is the tuberose for you.
