Tabac Blond by Caron Review
Tabac Blond is not for the faint-hearted—the fragrance from Caron is confident and unapologetic. The now classic was revolutionary for its time, using tobacco and leather for concoction, and managing to create something sophisticated out of the rebellious. It is warm and strong, and we do not think it would be appreciated by many more accustomed to modern, safe fragrances. The vintage is more of a must-have to us especially because of its beastly staying power.

Beautifully smoky, like the women who served as its inspiration
Leathery and woodsy
Sophisticated yet rebellious
A challenging classic with staying power and sillage to boot
Not for everyone
The age of the original can easily show
Save Big At:

Tabac Blond is the representation in a scent of old Parisian glamour, especially of its ladies. The scent, which has been around since 1919, is credited to the Caron house founder and perfumer Ernest Daltroff. It was rather unique for its time—some of its notes include carnation, iris, vanilla, leather, lime blossom, vetiver, cedar, ylang ylang, patchouli, musk and ambergris.
