Tuberose is a seductive queen of sensual delight, who sends out her sweet enchanting scent into the night, a call for love and enthralling sensual pleasures. Tuberose, a native of the New World, is the most sacred flower of the Maya, who regard it as the 'mother' of their Gods and thus ultimately as the progenitors of their own race. They often plant Tuberoses near shrines so that their alluring scent may rise to the heavens and delight the Gods during the night. Tuberose scent is so sweet and heavy as to be intoxicating. Its sensuality is tangible and seductive, but undiluted it is totally overwhelming. Tuberose is native to Central America where it has been cultivated in since pre-Colombian times. The Spaniards 'discovered' it and brought it back to the Old World. Today it is cultivated in France, Morocco and India, where it is used in high class perfumery and for precious incense. It is one of the most valuable absolutes - a ton of flowers are required to obtain just 1kg of essential oil.
