I bought one of THE SEALED vintage Tabac Blond extrait/pure parfums from an ebay seller in the last couple of weeks. I love the way it smells. I also have the current vintage of extrait - which someone on ebay is selling decants of (and at a very good price, I would add). The vintage and the new smell somewhat different. My vintage had evaporated down to about half. It smells substantially more intense - which I like. I am pretty knowledgeable about wine. It seems to me some fragrances age very well just as some wines become more beautiful with age. I actually like my vintage Tabac Blond better than the young extrait. It is smoother - just as a cabernet sauvignon wine becomes smoother and more perfectly blended with age. (And of course, wine "tasting" is more about aroma than taste - the sense of taste being more limited than the sense of smell.) My mother had an old bottle of Chanel Cuir de Russie and I remember it smelled utterly sensational. I would smell it with awe when I was just a girl of 10 or so. It smelled better than the new bottle I tried at a store a few years later. Maybe the leather/wood scents age particularly well. Come to think of it I also have an old bottle of Cabochard and it smells spectacular.
