A solid, soft tobacco and vanilla scent.
The third perfume of the collection is Tabacco, inspired by tobacco harvest and by a woman working in the field, collecting leaves the scent of which sticks on her hands and skin very clearly.
To me, this has some similarities to Bvlgari Black.
Substitute the smoky, burned tea note in Bvlgari Black for a very realistic humid tobacco note. The vanilla note is nearly identical. The opening is fresh with the bitter citrus, but that lasts maybe a minute.
The tobacco is leathery and raw as well as complex and aromatic, very nice.
There are floral notes of jasmine giving it a light airy touch as well as ylang-ylang smoothing everything over with an opaque white tone hovering in the background, making it feel more cleaned up.
Its simple, yet the tobacco and vanilla are balanced perfectly. Its not so entombing like Tobacco Vanille. Its an EDT with good staying power and the projection is respectable at an arms length for hours. It wont clear a room but others near you will know you’re wearing something rich, warm, sophisticated. Like with most quality fragrances the performance is steady in volume.
This fragrance, for me, has redefined what tobacco in a fragrance should smell like. The retail price is painful, but if you can find it for under $100, its worth considering. Its hard to argue with its execution and wearability.
Excellently executed and worthy of any tobacco fragrance lover’s cabinet.
A hyper realistic aromatic tobacco that offers a more accurate, refined and complex take on the overplayed duality of tobacco and vanilla.
