Agave amica, formerly Polianthes tuberosa, the tuberose, is a perennial plant in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae, extracts of which are used as a note in perfumery. Now widely grown as an ornamental plant, the species was originally native to Mexico.
The common name derives from the Latin tuberosa through French tubéreuse, meaning swollen or tuberous in reference to its root system.
The overwhelming fragrance of the tuberose has been distilled for use in perfumery since the 17th century, when the flower was first transported to Europe. French Queen Marie Antoinette used a perfume called Sillage de la Reine, also called Parfum de Trianon, containing tuberose, orange blossom, sandalwood, jasmine, iris and cedar.It remains a popular floral note for perfumes, either in stand-alone Tuberose fragrances or mixed floral scents, but it generally must be used in moderation because the essence is overpowering and can become sickly to the wearer.
Tuberose is a very intoxicating scent , at night it releases its odor , a floral musky smell . Its not so popular in the west, but its extremely popular in India, along with Jasmine sambac. In India and Bangladesh they are widely used in making flower garlands which are offered to the gods or used as wedding ornaments. While once associated with funerals, it is now used in floral arrangements for other occasions.
