Tabac Aurea Sonoma Scent StudioRelease Notes: Released March 26, 2009.

Perfumer's Comments: This scent opens with some leather and earthy notes but the tobacco gradually blooms over the opening minutes and then lasts throughout the drydown. When I first sniffed the rich, sweet scent of blond tobacco absolute years ago, I was very surprised that I loved the smell of it given that I've never smoked or been around pipe tobacco. Blond tabac absolute smells like pipe tobacco but is complex with nuances of hay, moss, and woods. The nicotine is usually removed from tabac absolute during the production process, and there is no nicotine in Tabac Aurea. Other ingredients besides tobacco, both synthetic and natural, can be used to enhance tobacco notes.
