La Collection Merveilleuse wears its name well. Combining the gems of our heritage with very contemporary creations, every last detail illustrates the overwhelming creativity, daring spirit, and generosity of our House. Refillable, stackable and customizable, the O bottle is our emblem. Free to be different, La Collection Merveilleuse is the most beautiful expression of French Haute Parfumerie by CARON.
Lovers of exceptional materials, you've got it coming. Because Tabac Noir is a composition of uncommon generosity, even for us. Opulent, this oriental with bewitching volutes is between power and sensuality.
Leathery, honeyed, with notes of dry hay, Balkan Tobacco absolute is an exceptionally faceted ingredient. To match its complexity, Jean JACQUES chose a rare essence of Indonesian patchouli essence, certified by the For Life network of sustainable growers, which insinuates dark woody notes into the warmth of papyrus and the smoky effects of cedar wood. A honey accord and tonka bean absolute underline the almost gourmand roundness of the Tabac absolute.
This Tabac Noir is a generous leather, a delicious perfume for sharing!
We owe a lot to tobacco. In 1919, we used it to create a revolutionary fragrance that made CARON a legend. Over the years, tobacco has become an emblem of our daring spirit. A symbol of our freedom. We turned it into our area of expertise, our trademark. And more recently, it has inspired an entire family of fragrances! This ingredient has such high olfactory complexity that it can be interpreted in an endless number of ways. With Tabac Noir, our perfumer Jean JACQUES brings out its naturally leathery facets in a fragrance that still bears a resemblance to its predecessor. Like Tabac Blond, Tabac Noir is about (very) prestigious materials and about sharing.
DID YOU KNOW?
Among the numerous fragrances that claim to smell of tobacco, only a few actually contain tobacco absolute. To replace it, perfumers can “cheat” with other ingredients such as coumarin, which imitates the hay-like accents of tobacco, or tonka bean, which shares notes of almond and vanilla with tobacco.
