    Tabacco Toscano
    by Santa Maria Novella

    compiled from several sources:
    Tabacco Toscano is a fresh woody-spicy fragrance with
    floral and fruity topnotes of bergamot and jasmine
    on a base of Tuscan tobacco leaves, amber and birch leaves.
    The undertone of citrus, leather, musk, vanilla and burnt malt
    reveals a warm and comfortable sensation.
    An elegant and distinguished fragrance.

    I am layering this with a tiny amount of Musk Ghazelle.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    My take on this one is that it's a beautiful snapshot of what masculine elegance seemed like at the turn of the last century; and having said that, I want it to be the epitome of masculine elegance today as well! The feeling I get when I wear this is superb, like walking on air. No matter what's going on in my day-to-day pedestrian existence, I can't believe there's anything to be concerned about if I smell this good. It's just that it's hard to be other than carefree when I'm wearing this; it takes an effort to feel I'm seriously responsible for anything other than existing and communing with the beauty of life.If there's one word for this scent, as far as I can tell, it would have to be "optimistic."

    A first-edition (1969) of Guerlain's Chamade EdT that I just got for a song off eBay. Old as hell, but even the bergamot-blast is preserved intact along with the leathery accord of hyacinth, blackcurrant and sandal.

    BTW: Just ordered a copy of Françoise Sagan's novel "La Chamade" to see if Jean-Paul Guerlain's famous "perfumed elevator" scene is really in there...

    Revisiting Domenico Caraceni from a sample. I tried it once a few months ago and thought it was pleasant but nothing too remarkable. I'm enjoying it much more this time. I could see this getting into my top 10 in time, I think I'll have to pick up a decant of this.
