    Tabac is a fresh tobacco leaves oriented aroma with hints of mild spices and the typical AbdesSaam Attar Profumo's ambery/mossy dry down. The latter is anyway in this case almost balmy and subtle with a whiff of final appearant suede. I detect hints aromatic herbs (may be laurel or thyme), soft musk, probably a touch of cinnamon (slightly burnt sugar effect eliciting), hints of fresh soothing vanilla and perfumed tobacco leaves. I detect the Don Corleone's tobacco/woods (vetiver?) central accord but while the latter is animalic, carnal and sweetly mellow Tabac performs in drier (at the beginning somewhat aqueous), fresher, smoother, muskier and less sweet way (in a differently masculine "format", namely in a less bombastic, more sober and subtle way). The dry down is absolutely smooth, boise and virile (still fresh and charismatic) with a minimal hint of soothing vanilla, labdanum, probably cedarwood and musks. In this phase the aroma is dry, elegant, soapy and slightly exotic. A smooth and spicy tobacco spark exhales from the elegant white suit of the southern trade man under the sun of Bogotà. I detect a vague conjuration about Cigar by Latour and the Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba's fresh tobacco touch but Tabac is less bright/powdery, more complex and somewhat mossier, browner, drier and spicier. Balanced and boise very pleasant aroma for the lovers of the spicy/exotic "tobaccos".

    Tabac opens with a mellow, comforting boozy whiff of aromatic plants like those you find in a herbal liquor- wormwood, liquorice wood, star anise. Then the eponimous note emerges, moderately smoky- my partner told me it smelt like the tiny brush you use to clean tobacco pipes!- leafy and moderately fruity- sitting more on slightly sour fruit notes -apricots and plums- than on ripe, sweet , thick ones. The result is elegant, dry and sheer, with a certain freshness. The base notes rely on the wonderful ambery, faintly bitter, resinous accord so typical of AbdesSalaam fragrances, rich in vanilla but never overly sweet. The lasting power is quite good, for a natural fragrance, while the projection is rather poor- after a couple of hours you can smell it only putting your nose close to your skin- a rewarding experience, though! Totally unisex, in my opinion.

    After trying Don Corleone i took my Tabac sample,

    this is the same familiar tobacco scent from there, but not sweet more airy in structure, blended with something like pine tree or cedar oil, that gives it citrus like feeling, something that reminds me of fresh air just like in Breath of god, of meditative quality and flowers, maybe rose water:-) but just as a hint!

    I did not expect i will like this scent, but as its popular i needed to try it,and glad i did because although its 100% masculine nature ,its unisex, because of its almost therapeutic impact on psyche , something very addictive here makes you want to sniff more and more,it does remind me of Arabic people, sun, dry sand and their tanned skin covered with white sheets,Mediterranean like nature, but perfectly wearable to the office

    After half an hour maybe its more sweet and warm nature comes out, resembling more to Don Corleone, touch of vanilla and cistus that give it something like ambery quality, creamy and making it more warm then at the initial blast

    Very nicely balanced and appealing to men especially to wear it and women to sniff it:-)

    Stunning beauty

    The start is indeed boozy and mildly vinegary, and it's not the perfumer's alcohol talking either. The tobacco note seems to be of the floral variety rather than the cured unsmoked leaves, projecting just short of shy, lurking behind the balsamic resins of cistus labdanum which also give the tobacco a slightly dry ambery feel. It is surprisingly complex for I also get a little tea note, plus an incensy almost chypre-like vibe going on. Perhaps that's why TABAC is comfortably more unisex than Chilum - it wears like a classic chypre rather than the straight-up tobacco scent I was hoping for. Still, no less mesmerizing.
