The first fragrance of the house was Tabu, created by Jean Carles 1932.
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.
So I gave her a mini of Tabu to wear at work (I work for a fragrance free brand gasp) she LOVED it. Was shopping on my lunch at the drug store in the mall.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.Tabu was that night you wore thigh-high stockings but forgot your fake ID, so someone's older sister gave you rootbeer schnapps and after the party you watched the sunrise drinking Constant Comment tea with the guy your friend wanted. I wore this once in high school and the boy who never noticed me asked my name, and the skirt I'd worn all year got measured with a ruler twice. I need to give this at least fifteen minutes on my skin before it really starts to shine as it can smell a little chemical/synthetic and aggressive upon immediate application for me. I’m going to have some fun experimenting and layering this with other fragrances which I love doing these days. My Tabu cologne in the violin shaped bottle is DIVINE in the cold. It's not as appealing as my favorite, Chanel No 5, but I definitely don't mind it and will wear it sometimes. it smells very current, or at least current in a 1970's way! Make no mistake, this is no lightweight, but a couple of spritzes is plenty and this is a lovely smoky, slightly woody scent. Lasts on clothing until laundry day, and even after laundry day, you might still get a slight whiff of this if you sniff hard.My mother took the bottle away and told me I could have it back when I went to college. Maybe layering it with something sweeter would help. Sweet, mellow, smooth creamy root beer with spice/musk... My daughter said it smells like "that incense you always burn" (nag champra) which I don't agree with. It is warm, spicy, soft, powdery and sexy as hell!! I use one spray on the back of my neck, one spray on my chest and one spray on my wrists (wrists lightly pressed together, not rubbed). Still, I would not say this is a safe blind buy, even though this is so affordable.
