Tuberose as a mood enhancener

Or a review of Agent Provocateur’s Tuberose Intoxication massage oil.

I don’t use it as a massage oil. I use it when I need an anti-depressant. Ok, that sounds too drastic as I’m not depressed but I use it on days when I feel down for no reason and need something to make me feel better. I use it as an after shower body oil instead of the lotion I usually use.ap tuberose

I love the smell of tuberose and I know it is usually reviewed as a seductive perfume (and I agree) but I think its narcotic nature is what works for me. πŸ˜‰ What other reason would there be for me to crave it when I need a pick me up if not for its narcotic nature? πŸ™‚

OK, now that I admitted I like narcotics in my flowers and perfumes, the reason I really enjoy putting this oil on (except the fact that I smell tuberosey for hours) is its silky texture. It applies well to moist skin but it also feels like you still have some on because its silkiness makes your hands glide and youΒ can’t lose that feeling. No wonder it’s advertised as massage oil…

The bad thing though, it seems it’s no longer available. That’s a shame as there were 3 oils released at the same time (I only tried the tuberose), but it makes me think that the others would smell and feel great too.

    These oils were shown on a discounting website here a while back but they are no longer shown – I wonder where beauty products go when the usual discounters are unable to shift them?

      I wonder that too. But if you see them again someplace, let me know.

    I was really interested to read this post as I have quite independently been revisiting tuberose as a note lately – am wearing Beyond Love and Mona di Orio’s Tubereuse today, for example. πŸ˜‰ This oil sounds lovely and I am sorry to hear it is discontinued – you do wonder why they would want to do that? ;(

      I do wonder why they would do that. I mean, I think they were quite good, ok, I only tried tuberose but if that one was good, the others are probably in the same category.

    More tuberose, well, maybe one day I’ll get as enthusiastic about the note as you πŸ™‚ although whenever you tuberose lovers write about it it sounds so nice. I’ll let you know should I encounter ithe AP oil, it’s very sad that your anti-depressant has been taken off the market.

      He,he, he, yes, I am always enthusiastic when it comes to tuberose. πŸ˜‰
      All information is appreciated if you see it somewhere.

    BUM! Losing a fave without sufficient buy-the-box-backup-time can be heartbreaking. I feel your pain,

      Thank you. πŸ™‚
      I’m using what’s left sparingly.


I love hearing your thoughts!
