i have respect for perfumes not the romantic marketing stories that come with products that become out of whack with what it really is.
btw shalimar my signature is from 1925 and its history is iconic.
The spices in the heart accentuate the beauty of exuberant flowers: jasmine, narcissus, rose and ylang-ylang.
Warm oriental base includes amber, resins, civet and precious woods – sandal and patchouli.
I want to like Tabu but on me it goes almost bitter, and too powdery. Tabu isn't Nag Champra, but it's similar with more of a root beer smell. While I am not a fragrance expert, I have been wearing fragrance almost everyday since Elementary School (yeah, I am one of those people, lol). ), baby powder (not strong though), Nag Champra Indian Incense, dirty vanilla (dirty in the best way), clove cigarettes (in the best way) and Autumn spices. I think if you like Shalimar, Giorgio Red, those types of fragrances, you might like this.
Not an everyday fragrance for me, one that I have to be in the "mood" for; this is nice for say a rainy day or a Fall or snowy Winter day, that sort of thing.
The first fragrance of the house was Tabu, created by Jean Carles 1932.Fragrance collectors need to smell this just to show how complexity and quality can come with a small price tag. I see men who like deep fragrances with character loving this.Even if it is not as good as the vintage, the concept of the scent is retro for COLD weather. In addition, I see mature sophisticated women loving this one too. As a said, every collector should at least sniff this one.For historical and collecting ratings, this is an easy 8/10.YT-Shavenonthedarkside The first day I wasn't sure, but then...
