Reviews of Feuilles de Tabac

Second staggeringly good Miller Harris I have tried.
Think green fresh tobacco leaf. Subtle, masculine rather than unisex and stays fairly linear. Tobacco, touch of amber and pine and tonka.
Why would people criticise this for not being stronger or the fragrance they wanted it to be?
It is a superb wearable subtle masculine fragrance suitable for almost any occasion.
Bought 100ml bottle. Enough said.

Feuilles de Tabac by Miller Harris is an interpretation of uncured tobacco leaves within the aromatic green genre. The initial phase is citric, slightly peppery and slightly smoky, and paired with some tobacco notes that impart a humidity to the fragrance. Things go south soon, as the composition somewhat comes apart: any spicy aspect vanishes, and the tobacco disappears as well to leave behind a woody-sweet dry down that is only slightly aromatic. The fragrance is also rather meek with soft sillage, and duration is quite fleeting.

Feuilles de Tabac comes across as a missed opportunity because of its shortcomings. A greater focus on tobacco together with a considerable increase in potency would have been much more interesting. The vintage version of Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme can be thought of as a much improved Feuilles de Tabac: unfortunately, it is almost impossible to come by now. Or, just get Havana.

It's a nice little thing to wear on warmer days, really more of a citrus cologne with a bit of masculine ornamentation than a serious perfume with a masculine (or any) narrative arch. More synthetic than I recall it to have smelled years ago. In terms of tobacco, it doesn't hold a stick to my favorites by Odori and La Via del Profumo. Not worth full retail.

I first became aware of this when I bought the shaving soap, so I'm a bit surprised that it is officially described as unisex. From memory the shaving soap was a lot more Patchouli woody than the EdP, but is fairly similar. It is a nice light woody herbal. I don't find it especially Fougere, nor does it remind me of any other fragrances; certainly not Old Spice nor Havana. Not as floral as the first, not as Labdanum rich as the second. There is a vetiver greenness together with a liberal use of modern woody amber molecules. It is well blended, and lasts a reasonably long time. If I owned a chest wig I would wear this all of the time. As it is, I will wear it when I have become bored with flowers and sweet orientals. It is a perfect opposite to Agent Provocateur, or L'Heure Bleu, or Tea Rose (all of which I wear). To be perverse I should wear it with purple silk shirt, and maybe a touch of makeup; just to confuse the punters. Or maybe not.

Insanely bad performance from my 2014 bottle and doesn't smell all that great either.

Forget the fancy note pyramid.

Sure this opens pleasantly, smelling of mildly sweet citruses and a good tobacco note. But this phase last two minutes and is replaces by a strong, prickly, astringent black pepper that carries the fragrance for about 20 minutes and transports you to your mum's spice rack. The fragrance then becomes a light Amber scent that is barely there before the whole thing disappears after just over an hour.

Of course, every sale of this fragrance is sealed by the pleasant first two minutes. The all of the perfumer is to have concentrated their efforts into this brief phase of the fragrance.

A crime is committed every time a bottle is sold.
