Tabac adds a strong note of pipe tobacco that brings mysterious, sensual, warm, and/or nostalgic element to any perfume composition. Our Tabac has a honey caramel-whiskey-hay-vanilla aspect that blends beautifully with vanilla, patchouli, incense, amber, and woody perfumes or can be work on its own as a unique stand alone perfume.
Best layered under: Spices, medium and dark ambers, cacao, vanillas, leathers, woods, fruits, robust florals, and anything with strong patchouli
Best for fixing: Perfumes that are boring, too dry/woody, patchoulis or animalistic musks that lean too dirty, ambers that lean too powdery, gourmands that are too sweet, or heady florals that are too indolic.
Note: Tabac is a heavier essence that can sometimes separate. This is natural for essences that do not use phthalate binding ingredients. Shake the bottle gently before use for optimum results.
Layering notes let you shift and alter your scents to match your mood or the seasons, to take advantage of subtle skin chemistry changes, or to dabble with the olfactory arts of niche perfumery. Layering notes are also an easy way to customize your favorite scents and make them uniquely and unforgettably yours.... or can help rekindle a romance with perfume you once loved but are getting a little bored with. The simplicity and uncomplicated linear qualities of single notes are distinctive in and of themselves for stand alone.
