The Tuberose flower was first discovered thousands of years ago in Mexico and has since become the symbol of desire and forbidden pleasure. Today this night-blooming plant is carefully cultivated in the South of India, where it is used in religious ceremonie. It has also become a favourite ingredient of the world's top perfumers, who praise it for its noble yet bewitching qualities. Gerald Ghislain created Histoires de Parfum Tuberose 1 Capricious in recognition of the super diva: the stubborn and demanding starlet whose scent treads the line between natural and sophisticated. In this perfume, the tuberose note is cloaked in saffron and ylang-ylang and supplemented by leathery cocoa base notes. This is a smooth, and well-rounded powdery fragrance that is as mysterious as it is addictive.

Histoires de Parfums is not what one might think, ’Histories’ of perfume, ‘Histoires’ translates as the ‘Stories' of Perfumes. That is what this range is all about; the stories. Histoires de Parfums is an olfactory library, a set of volumes telling the tales of famous characters in terms of fragrance rather than words. Histoires de Parfums is the brainchild of Gérald Ghislain, the ‘author’ – as he describes himself – who by employing his abundant imagination was able to bring his cast of characters alive, allowing them to jump out of the bottle rather than off the page, the measure of a great writer. Like all perfume houses selected by Roullier White, Histoires de Parfums maintains uses only the finest raw materials and good quality, heavyweight bottles, beautifully boxed. Born in the South of France and brought up in Morocco Gérald Ghislain, a graduate of the Institut Supérieur International du Parfum, grew up surrounded by exotic scents and with a Mediterranean passion for all that is good in life. This passion is evident in each of Ghislain’s Histoires de Parfums creations; each one is a work of art.
