What perfume can increase your sex appeal?
Alina sits down with 21G and reveals all her tips and tricks on how to make Tuberose truly yours...
"If you were to see me: a tall, confident man in a perfectly tailored, Italian 3-piece suit, with neatly cropped hair and a confident stride. The illusion of a man that demands respect. A man who captivates".
Roja Dove coined tuberose to be the “harlot of perfumery”. I’m sure he meant it in a very charming and sweet way. So, something more like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, where we all know she had found her Prince Charming the second that silver sports car screeched to a halt. She tried to be bad, she tried to not fall for him, and he for her, but in the end, they just couldn't escape one another. That's the kind of force brought to the table here.
But it's not all sexual, as tuberose is known to relieve stress and anxiety. That could be an absolute lifesaver when it comes to those stressful exams! You'd just need to take a deep whiff in of tuberose to sort you out. It’s also linked to increased blood flow circulation and helps to reduce inflammation – say goodbye to Ibuprofen!
"If you were to taste me: the cream of a tiramisu – sinful, delectable, and hard to resist. When you taste me, your palate is overwhelmed by the intense coffee and sting of alcohol, but the creamy sweetness keeps you returning again and again...
Usually, it is incredibly concentrated in small amounts inside perfume to give a big bang. It’s small but mighty. No question about it. Like an ant that’s able to lift something five to ten times its own weight! Not even Arnold Schwarzenegger can do that! Its intensity and creaminess are unlike any other white floral. Often compared to gardenia or orange blossom but then distinguished by the camphor facet on top. Simultaneously, there is a deep earthiness present, along with some mild, buttery, notes tucked away deep in the back.
"If you were to feel me: a lace dress – sensual, provocative, confident, yet soft to wear, airy and pleasant against the skin."
Tuberose pairs well with other white flowers like jasmine, neroli, lily of the valley and rose. This gives off an even fresher and more sophisticated vibe. Everything you’re after.
Still, be careful, as its combination with amber will weaponise this scent and turn it into a tool of seduction to be used on unsuspecting men… Additionally, tuberose and cedarwood are the perfect combination for those who dare to try!
Even with a hint of tobacco added into the mix, it will make for a killing love potion… It brings that Pretty Woman likeability to the table, and once it enters, there's no going back.
