"Extreme" Shoulder Shrug...
Tabac Original Extreme goes on skin with strong herbal bitter-green artemisia and gobs of mossy-green oakmoss with a hint of carnation florals before transitioning to its heart. As the composition reaches its early heart, the oakmoss remains as co-star to significant musk rising from the base, as the bitter-green artemisia moves to a supporting role, joined in support by nutmeg warm spice and woody vetiver. During the late dry-down the woody vetiver and musk both take the fore with remnants of the oakmoss remaining through the finish. Projection is minimal, as is longevity at 3-4 hours on skin.

Tabac Original Extreme poses quite the quandary. On the one hand its aromatic oakmoss laden open is not only eye opening, but rather fantastic smelling. Once you get past the open, however, things turn much more mundane. That is not to say the composition goes completely south, but rather it becomes more of an average product of its time, as the musk and woody vetiver come into play. If it were released nowadays I am sure I would be amazed, but when compared against its contemporaries, after the terrific open one just can't get too excited, with that feeling only confirmed by its rather linear development through the finish. Adding to the development disappointment, the relatively poor performance metrics also don't make much of a case for the composition in the end. The bottom line is the discontinued $50 per 50ml bottle on the aftermarket Tabac Original Extreme is pretty decent smelling, but lags many of the prominent offerings of its contemporaries, earning a "good" 3 stars out of 5 rating, but only a neutral recommendation due to its lack of distinguishing itself from "the 90s pack."
