Tuberose floral wax
Tuberose floral wax. Botanical Name: Poliantes tuberosa. Country of origin: India.
Tuberose is one of the most expensive fragrances known. As is the norm with all floral waxes, this wax is an excellent moisturizer with very good emollient action. Use in products in .4 to 6% range. The scent of Tuberose is considered by many to be narcotic and aphrodisiac.
Floral waxes are plant waxes made from flowers. During production waxes such as beeswax are not added, the resulting wax is a result of separation of the concrete as explained below. Floral waxes are usually produced from delicate flowers in order to retain their fragrance. Steam distillation would destroy the fragile scent molecules.
Freshly picked, carefully selected flower heads are mixed with a solvent to produce a concrete. When mixed with a high proof alcohol and then chilled, the concrete separates into a fragrant liquid and a waxy solid. (To make an absolute, the alcohol is removed from the liquid via evaporation, leaving the absolute.)
Floral waxes are less expensive than absolutes and add emolliency, scent and color to creams and lotions. Recommended use rate is up to 10%. Floral waxes also work very well for scenting lotions; 1 oz. of floral wax is equivalent to about 1/2 oz. of the corresponding absolute.
Floral waxes work well to scent a lotion or other body product, a tiny amount is all that’s needed to scent the complete recipe. Melt the wax over very low heat and add it to your recipe. Floral wax usually constitutes 2% of a final recipe.
Floral wax might be too expensive to use in CP or HP soap, you’d need to use too much to get scent without it getting lost in the process. Large portions of the wax are unsaponifiable, so your soap might actually feel a bit “waxy” by the time you added enough to get a noticeable scent.
Floral waxes can be used to scent a product – it all depends on how strong a scent you want. It’s advisable to keep your floral wax usage to below 10% of the final product weight. Most floral waxes are strongly scented enough that you will have a fair amount of fragrance coming through at that ratio.

Gorgeous wax with many uses
I bought this as a treat for myself, but now consider adding it to my product line. I added it to lotion and lotion bars at just 1%. The scent is beautiful and distinctive even with such a small amount. Then I added it to my hair conditioner recipe along with my usual fragrance blend. Strangers sniff my hair! Being a wax, it also adds emollient properties to these products.

First..the smell of this wax is lovely! I had this for a while and didn't get a chance to do much experience with it, that's ok because I'm sure it will do good in whatever I add to it. However I did use this in my hair butter and I feel it def locks the moisture in a lot longer then w/o. Also the fact it gives my hair a sexy smell is a plus :-). Will be using this in a lot of my products that I make.

I used part of this in perfumer's alcohol and extracted a beautiful soft scent from the wax, which I then incorporated into a body spray. I also made a simple lip balm of beeswax, tuberose wax and almond oil, achieving both a great consistency and pleasing scent.

I have never smelled tuberose before. It has a nice smell but it smells slightly of tumeric the spice! Interesting scent.

Great in lotion bars and solid perfumes!
If you want to experiment with a real flower aroma rather than the fragrance duplications, here is your product! I've tried the tuberose and jasmine, I think the tuberose is my fav. Melting this wax will have to be carefully done: slowly, using the lowest heat possible (dbl boiler method is best) before using it in place of bees, carnuba, or candelia wax in lotion bars or solid perfume. Once "burned" you'll lose the delicacy and what was once beautiful now stinks! The scent lasts longer when combined into a lotion bar/solid perfume than when stored alone-scent declines aft 6 mos when carefully wrapped in plastic food film. Powerful, a little goes a long way and the deep tan color than colors the final product is kinda cool I think! Mixing can be tricky given tuberose is a spicy, sweet smell that you don't want to hide but embellish! Orange EO was not compliment for this one.
