Tabac Blond strikes chaos by combining the dark, smoky accents of a typically masculine leather note with a powdery carnation, sensual and infinitely feminine. Marvellously ambiguous, this pairing oscillates between the powerful scent of skin and the softness of a flower.
First, the essence of Virginia cedar, then the earthy accents of vetiver and patchouli, ... The very dark blend of Virginia cedar essence, vetiver, patchouli, coupled with the smoky effects of cistus labdanum and styrax essence produces a radical contrast with the floral heart: a rich bouquet of rose and ylang-ylang, where the naturally spicy notes of carnation are accentuated by clove.
This Tabac Blond is a legend, a scent of pure transgression!
A legend isn’t born, it’s made. Tabac Blond was carrying the seed of a masterpiece from the very start. The year was 1919. * Ernest Daltroff was well aware of the change. Inspired by these new attitudes, he dreamed up a deliberately provocative fragrance centring on the “blonde” tobacco favoured by those beautiful tomboys. The first leather-dominated fragrance in history turned out to be too innovative for the men it was designed for, but women weren’t so shy: they flocked to it, making it an emblem of their emancipation. A monument in modern perfumery, Tabac Blond smells of freedom and sharing. And it preceded gender fluidity “only” by a century.
DID YOU KNOW?
In more ways than one, Tabac Blond was a trendsetter. Its predominantly leathery sillage – unprecedented at the time – did nothing less than rise to a new fragrance family: the “leathers”. But here at CARON, we call it the “tobacco” family, in tribute to this pioneering creation.
