Alba Botanica Midnight Tuberose : Shower Gel Review


If you are looking for a shower gel version of L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons, then Midnight Tuberose would be a perfect choice. The scent of its pearly white cream captures perfectly a mist of jasmine and tuberose that makes La Chasse Aux Papillons so appealing. It lathers easily and lingers pleasantly on the skin, although not strongly enough to clash with whatever fragrance one decides to wear. Moreover, the addition of aloe vera makes it fairly emollient, which further contributes to my affection for this shower gel.

The best part is that it is priced rather reasonably at $7.99 for 12oz, and is available at various online and natural food stores. Drugstore is just one such place where it can be found. This proves that a true olfactory delight accompanying every morning shower does not have to be costly.



  • Robin: Thanks for the great review, V, I am going to look for this at Whole Foods. August 23, 2005 at 8:36am Reply

  • Katie: The alba botanica line is quite nice in general. I adore their shave creams. The Honey Mango one they sell under the Trader Joe’s line is fantastic. The others are good, too, but that one’s my fave. This one I haven’t seen at my Wild Oats, but I will keep my eyes open. August 23, 2005 at 7:13pm Reply
