With Tabac Blond, leather is given pride of place, elevated by powerful woody and smokey notes. Virginian cedar wood is first added to the formula in excess, at 20%. Then the earthy accents of vetiver and patchouli, coupled with the smokey notes of cistus labdanum and vulcanised styrax essence. This very dark blend provides a stark contrast to its floral heart notes: a rich bouquet of rose and ylang-ylang, where the naturally spicy notes of carnation are accentuated by clove. Fused into an intense and deep scent, these antagonistic notes create a new kind of perfume. Evoking the transgressive atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties, Tabac Blond is a lightly powdery leather scent that is both dark and delicate with an enchanting ambivalence. A revolutionary creation back then, a revolutionary creation today.
