    Default Tabac Original: EDT vs. EDC

    I learned my first big frag lesson today...there is a difference between Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne. I purchased a BIG bottle of Tabac from Perfumania (oh stop!) and thought I was getting a great bargain @ $19.99 for 10.1 ounces. Of course, that is actually a very reasonable price compared to online retailers.

    But....what I didn't notice is that it is an EDC. I've found it lasts about an hour on me. Oh great.

    So I've done some research and there is a 3.4 oz EDT that I can get for about the same price. But I've also read that the EDT smells different and opinions seem to lean towards the EDC smelling better. I definitely like the smell of the EDC, but an hour....that just ain't going to cut it.

    Suggestions? If you are prone to wearing Tabac (no, not the Blond one which I've learned has nothing to do with this), would you choose the EDT or the EDC?

    Thanks!

    I prefer the EDC because it´s the original release. The EDT was released 20 years later and it doesn´t
    fit to my body chemistry.

    So is Tabac Original Extreme the EDT? I see a bottle on amazon that says "Tabac Original" and it is an EDT. But it does not say extreme on it.

    Confused.

    As far as I know Tabac Original Extreme is a stronger version of the EDT,anyway it´s discontinued.

    I just realized this thread was about Tabac Original...NOT Tabac Blond - so I am removing my comments....

    I had both the EDC and EDT. (currently own the EDT)
    The EDT is definitely spicier and woodier, and is my favorite.
    The EDC is great too, of course.

    Ah, since you have both, I have a question.

    How much longer does the EDT last over the EDC?

    Thanks!

    I wrote that I *had* both and currently owning the EDT.
    How much longer? I can't tell exactly.
    But the EDC had good longevity on me anyway.

    The EDT lingers for a good six hours on me, and I'm a sillage slayer.
