    Default Parfum d`Empire - Tabac Tabou

    Take my money already, like seriously - I'm so here for tobacco and "cul de cheval". Only worry would be too much sweetness from the honey/imortelle - please be an animalic waxy honey, fingers crossed...

    Any lucky ducky try this yet? Don't be shy.

    Read about this recently. A sure buy for me when it comes available.

    I'm intrigued, but at 140E/50 ml it must be really good to make some sense.

    "Waxy animalic honey" with a touch of horse's rump - sounds like Acaciosa (can I say that?!).

    I'm definitely interested in this one. I don't believe it's out yet but I'll be hot-footing it down to Jovoy as soon as I get the chance.

    Does anybody know where this will be stocked in the UK?
    As it's a limited release I don't want to miss it

    I've just tried a pre-release sample on a card, courtesy of a very helpful vendor in the Marais.

    For me, it's what can best be described as a soapy floral leather, with good dollop of old-school civet. Lovers of mid-century diva classics will be happy. The tobacco is present, providing a mildly peppery support to the florals, but not strong, and I'm struggling to locate the equine posterior. For those who care about such things, I'd say it reads feminine rather than butch. It's very nicely done, though I was told that longevity is not as good as one might expect. I'd certainly be up for a split.

    Thanks for your impressions! Sounds interesting... how strong is the immortelle (if you remember)? That note is usually a deal breaker for me.

    According to some, it completely falls flat in the base. Like an amazing 15 minutes ride during the opening and then YAAWWN. I'm still somewhat intrigued but my expectations lowered a bit...

    I didn't smell the immortelle for the first few hours, but when I came back to the strip the day after it was noticeable. Of course, sprayed on skin it might behave differently. Hope to try it again properly once it's actually released.

    FIF shows it now as immediately available for purchase. Could their status have changed on this so quickly?

    I don't know if FIF are employing Superman these days, as my perfume arrived today, unbelievably quick!

    As I have already perfumed myself today I'm trying on a piece of kitchen roll- my go to for testing, very absorbent! To my rubbish nose the perfume opens with sweetness (Immortelle), mixed with a horsey note, it has a warmth to it, like hay in the sun, the tobacco is soft and green, it doesn't smell like pipe tobacco to me (my references being Chergui, Fumerie Turque), more like fresh tobacco in the sun.

    With a very limited sniffing time I'd say it's a very nice, not loud, scent. It's quite gentle and soft, I'm going to enjoy wearing this and giving it a proper test
