Greatly helpful Review 24
Before I reveal my love for the olfactory masterpiece and history carrier, I would like to point out that it will be a very long commentary.
I don't think there's a fragrance on perfumo where I've started to write a comment so many times and then deleted it because I thought, "No, the comment is too bad," "No, this fragrance deserves a great comment. No, I'm commenting on this fragrance on my 100th, 200th, ......, 1000th comment, that's how good and worthy it is!" or above all, "No, you still need a few harsh winters to better understand this fragrance. "You better take your time before you comment on some bullshit you'll be denying in a few years. This hasn't been a lie since I've been a Parfumo member, and even today I'm wondering if this comment will survive this time or if it will seem too bad to me again.
Tabac Original is and remains number 1, because I love this fragrance so much that every comment so far seemed too grottig to me, because this piece of German post-war history deserves only the best feedback you can write.
Anyone wearing Tabac Original today in 2019 has either grown up with it in his youth (that's mainly the old generation) and continues to do so to this day, or wants to make a statement in modern society (here I would see the young generation as well as myself). Admittedly, one can clearly smell that Tabac Original comes from a completely different time, but I nevertheless feel it to be retro, but also timeless. As a child of the 90's I smelled him already at this time more often than it is the case today. Unfortunately, I belong to the group where Grandpa did not wear Tabac Original (in fact, he much preferred to wear Eau de Cologne).
But with fresh 18 years I came in contact with the scent in a funny way. I began my training at that time and when my former superior and department manager passed me by, he carried with him an unbelievably pleasant waft of fragrance, which I was very fond of. "Wow, what a horny smell!" I thought to myself and was really paralyzed and really wanted to know what kind of scent it is, because I have never smelled anything like it before. At that time I was still wearing my beloved Cuba Gold Paris (A Le Male clone and m.E. the better Le Male).
This fragrance radiates maturity, strength of character, masculinity and above all security. That's how I wanted to smell. Over the months I became more and more involved with my superior and he told me that it was Tabac Original. To this day, the fragrance fits him like a fist to the eye! Meanwhile I have been a student for a long time and have a kind of father-son relationship with him long after I finished my education, which is why I associate this fragrance very strongly with him. He became my foster father and taught me a lot for life, for which I am very grateful to him. You'd think he'd given me an inheritance. So it sometimes seems to me in retrospect.
I've been wearing Tabac since I was 18 and can't imagine life without him. I've experienced so much with this fragrance. I got to know my girlfriend with this scent, with whom I have been together for many years (and she loves him on me!), I matured with him, I made up for my vocational baccalaureate with it and started the life of the student and there is no end in sight.
Tabac Original is not just a fragrance to be applied for an evening to smell good and to impress the world of women. No, Tabac Original is a fragrance that you grow into and grow into, underlining the character of the wearer. The wearer must be completely indifferent to what people think of the fragrance. Rarely has an advertising slogan "Either you have character, or you don't" gone so well with a fragrance as Tabac Original, because it's not the wearer who is looking for the fragrance here, but the fragrance that is looking for the wearer. Not everyone radiates the same with this caliber. Tabac Original doesn't suit everyone. And believe me, I've been asked often enough what a great fragrance I wear and what it's called and that I smell so incredibly good
Although he's already 67 years(!) old, he's still on sale! He has gone through every decade, every development and every trend and he is still alive! Other scents will have to imitate that for now. And the best thing is that for a good price you get an unbelievably good quality. I own almost all of it! Shaving soap, hair lotion, After Shave and EdC. Everything available in my bathroom cabinet.
I hope that Tabac Original will continue to be available for decades to come, because I don't want to think about it without it, otherwise I would have to rent a location hall and cover myself with a complete monthly wage and believe me, I would do that with Tabac Original!
Actually I wanted to keep my favourite for a 100th, ...., 1000th comment, but Tabac Original is so modest and down-to-earth that he doesn't even need it. Consider this comment as my most important, because it is.
