    Default My Score of the Decade!!! Wax Sealed Vintage Tabac Blond!!!

    I am beyond excited here!!! I was able to score 1 (3 oz) bottle of Vintage Tabac Blond still sealed with wax as well as two additional (1 oz) ones also wax sealed. I may open one of the small ones but will keep the other 2 as collector pieces until the foreseeable future.

    Ooh, glorious! I am so envious, why don't I ever score anything like that? Please do report on the smell. I have never smelled truly vintage Tabac Blond, I only have the recent parfum, that starts wonderfully, then loses itself.

    Well?

    Are you going to share the story of the acquisition? These babies don't grow on trees.

    And, of course, we want to hear about the smell as well!

    Thanks everyone! This version is a different animal than todays Tabac Blond.

    I am a big fan of the current tabac blond but this Vintage is an experience. I always hear people say that a scent is an emotion or so on but never understood it. This vintage Tabac blond really does transport you to a time long ago simply because you don't smell things like this anymore.

    It is really hard to explain but this sent is oily, waxy and damp at the same time. It has a richness that you don't find in scents today. You will be happy to note that todays Tabac blond does share some similarities but they are more of a ghost of its past. The scent is very warm almost smelling like really warmed up skin in the summer...but potent. A little goes a long way. This is truly like an aged scotch. There is a real difference between the two. I always wonder if this scent smelled this way back when it was fresh or did the age and time make it that much more deep and rich... almost buttery.

    I think this bottle is the older of the two versions I have seen. The new (meaning probable 50's and 60') has the same look but says Tabac Blond on that front sun dial looking sticker. So I would figure this to be older that that.
