French niche line Parfum d’Empire has launched Tabac Tabou. The new fragrance will be produced yearly in limited quantities, with the year of production printed on the label.
In Tabac Tabou, the tobacco leaf arrives folded in whiffs of fresh hay and wild landscape, rich and utterly untamed. A green, fresh narcissus meets white flowers, rough-hewn leather and compellingly fur-like animalic notes. Sweet, honeyed immortelle supports the main ingredient's natural sweetness, while unannounced secret ingredients lend incredible depths of earthy yet delicate nuance, confirming our feeling that this isn't so much a standard fragrance as it is a direct pipeline to a mystical world that used to be.
Additional notes include honey, grass and musk.
Parfum d'Empire Tabac Tabou is $150 for 50 ml
Eau Extrait de Parfum at Luckyscent.
