    Tabacco Toscano by Santa Maria Novella

    After the amazing tour of the pit stop with Nostalgia, I was half-expecting a similarly macho interpretation of the Toscano il sigaro (a brand of Italian cigars). Instead what I got was a subtle take on tobacco more reminiscent of an empty cigarette box. Dude, where's my tobacco? To me TOSCANO is a pleasant low sillage skin scent with a well blended base of amber, vanilla and malt lending a complementary touch of airy sweetness to the fleeting tobacco and presumably greater mass appeal. It's wearable even on sunny days. But fans of Tobacco Vanille and richer tobacco notes may find it as hollow as that empty cigarette box, marking this release as yet another triumph of marketing sensibilities over what could have been unadulterated artistry.
