Tuberose Moss - Tuberose is a tuberous perennial Mexican herb (Polianthes tuberosa) that has glass like leaves and is cultivated for its highly fragrant white flowers. These flowers are sweet and heady and prized by florists everywhere. Because of the solvent extraction process, tuberose absolute is generally very expensive and not easily attainable. The base note of green Moss in this blend adds a sophisticated foil for the honeyed tuberose and comes through as a green, misty base. Our blend holds up admirably in cold process soap though does accelerate trace slightly.

My sample and first bottle of this scent was very feminine and sophisticated. Somehow with this bottle all I get is the moss. My tuberose scent is all gone, and took every bit of femininity and sophistication with it, leaving a very earthy scent behind.
I have lotions I made from the first bottle that is definitely tuberose moss. There is no comparison between the old and new bottles. I have swirled the bottle to no avail. It has been a while but Tuberose is still AWOL. What happened?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Shelly! I'm sorry your most recent bottle of this fragrance wasn't to your liking. Nothing about this scent has been reformulated so I'm wondering if you received the wrong fragrance. I will email you directly to resolve this issue.
If you want a pure tuberose, then no this one is not for you, but if you want a moss, with tuberose, this is great. I wasnt sure but I used very very sparingly in blends and it adds a nice deeper touch, but very sparingly. Seems to hold up well. I did not try in soap, only lotions.
Tuberose is one of my favorite scents, but I've never used it in B&B products because it's beyond expensive. I tried Tuberose Moss; like the previous reviewer, I used it in soap before drawing my conclusions. To me, the earthy note comes across as salty or almost like bread crust. The effect was not pleasant. For the life of me, I couldn't get a green or mossy note. I wish Bramble Berry would try again with tuberose. They do such a great job with everything else.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cid! I'm sorry you did not detect any earthy notes in this scent. We love our Tuberose Moss Fragrance Oil and find it to be very earthy with a deep moss base note. If you're looking for other earthy scents you may like Sea Moss Fragrance Oil, Sunny Herb Garden Fragrance Oil, or Flower Child Fragrance Oil. If you're looking for another rose blend you may just love the Crisp Apple Rose Fragrance Oil!
I had very high hopes for this, but the end result is a nauseating smell in some rather expensive soap. I used some very skin loving oils and thought at first some must have been rancid even though I checked them before adding to the soap. I know it's hard to tell what a fragrance is really like in the bottle, but after checking the bottle I can tell the odor, not fragrance - odor, is from the bottle of Tuberose. I've been disappointed by fragrances before, but that was just personal preference. I haven't found a soul who thought this even the slightest bit pleasant. I love nearly every product I've purchased from Brambleberry, and their customer service is excellent, but this is one product I could never recommend. Perhaps it's just as well it's being discontinued. Tereh, this wasn't just a matter of not liking an earthy smell. It's actually disgusting. Everyone who has smelled the soap agrees, and the soap smells just like the bottle.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Dianna! I'm sorry you did not like this fragrance. We love the sweet white floral scent with surprising base notes of green moss in the Tuberose Moss Fragrance Oil! If you're looking for white florals that are less earthy you may like Jasmine Dreams Fragrance Oil, Pikake Flower Fragrance Oil, or Gardenia Fragrance Oil. I'm so sorry you dislike the fragrance so much. We still love the Tuberose Moss! A lighter usage rate may make it more palatable for some. You also may try chopping up the soap you made with it and using it in another soap!
I just finished making a batch with this scent. I read the disclaimer and saw that it can accelerate trace, and I was prepared to move fast... Or so I thought! I mixed the oils and lye in short bursts until it was JUST emulsified, and then added the FO and just barely mixed it in before dividing the batch for coloring. By the time the colors were mixed into the divided batters, it was at an extremely thick trace. I had to dump my colors back into the pot, stir, and then pour a somewhat gloppy mess of not-so-swirly soap into the mold. The smell itself is fine--mostly floral but with very slightly green undertones. I'm not usually a fan of overly floral fragrances (they can give me a headache), but this is a very calming and smooth fragrance. I'm hoping I can find an excuse to make another BB order soon so I can get some more of this before the stock runs out! I don't think I'll be testing out colorants with this again, though.
