Tobacco Vanilla
While testing a beautiful new tobacco Vanilla - Vanille Havane by Les Indemodables - I remembered another “Cuban” vanilla from the past called Havana Vanille by L'Artisan Parfumeur. This fragrance was created by Bertrand Duchaufour, and released first in 2009 under the name Havana Vanille.
Soon after that it was renamed to Vanille Absolument due to copyright issues, as I heard. Unfortunately, even under this name the fragrance quickly disappeared from the shelves.

Then in 2011, the famous cognac house Frapin launched a fragrance called 1697, also by Mr. Duchaufour’s hand, and it was very much reminiscent of L'Artisan's Havana Vanille. 1967 basically contained the same accord of Tobacco and Vanilla (enriched in both perfumes with fruits, spices, resins and wood), only here the note of raw tobacco leaf was intensified, and a mossy-green juniper nuance was added to the composition. It has a quite unique blend (at least, it had 10 years ago, when tobacco-centered fragrances had just begun their triumphant march on the market) and is an excellent representative of the alcohol-tobacco-gourmand genre. And, it definitely deserves much more attention than it gets.
