Tuberose Distillates (Polianthes Tuberosa)

Tuberose oil is extracted from Polianthes Tuberosa of the Agavaceae family and is also known as Tuberosa and Tubereuse. The Tuberose (Polianthes Tuberosa) is a perennial plant related to the agaves, extracts of which are used as a middle note in perfumery.

The Tuberose is a night-blooming plant thought to be native to Mexico along with every other species of Polianthes.

It grows in elongated spikes up to 45 cm long that produce clusters of fragrant waxy white flowers that bloom from the bottom towards the top of the spike. It has long, bright green leaves clustered at the base of the plant and smaller, clasping leaves along the stem.

It is cultivated all over the world for the cut flower trade, but specially in Egypt, China, France, Morocco and  Philippines for its oil

Tuberose

is an outstandingly beautiful flower with a very complex scent that becomes very potent at nightfall.


The lipophilic components of fresh Tuberose blossoms are extracted, filtrated and concentrated and purified via distillation.
