How I like you so much, stay with me always
I have been using this AS Balsam for many years. Not without reason. Here we go Top note
Very pleasant fresh with a good shot of lavender. Lemon complements very skilfully.
Heart note
Floral notes meet wood. Freshness and lavender are wonderfully present and round off beautifully.
Base
Woody moss and not too strong musk emerge, accompanied by fine tobacco notes with a very nice vanilla.
Care
With an after shave the scent is certainly not unimportant. However, I find the care properties very important. These are already top with this ASB. No burning, no shaving, Very, very good Conclusion
The fragrance of this after shave balm can easily keep up with some other EdT and EdP. It is surprisingly versatile and complex. The care properties are very, very good. I wouldn't want to miss this ASB again.

A classic after-shave in a classic bottle --- great creativity, lots of wonderful notes.
I've enjoyed this cologne for several decades! It also seems fresh, has immediate appeal, does NOT have an overwhelming tobacco flavour as some might suspect. Even the additional presence of oakmoss (now banned by the EU) does not produce any harshness at all.

There are lots of oils at work in this mix, many which are found in a majority of leading perfumes. The base notes include vanilla AND tonka bean: almost an overkill but it works here, and it works beautifully.

For me, Tabac is a classic whose appeal will go on and on, no doubt.

A slightly less popular version of Old Spice, or a mild version of Aramis. Great old school which is bright and refreshing certainly.
