Come, sweet fragrance!
Now something has happened again.

The Hinterseer Michi has caught it. Grad of which one would never have expected. Rock solid he always stood there and now, it has also caught him. Stunned are the people. He wasn't the first. Hinterseer Michi was rather the last. From the regulars' table. All the others before him already. Got him. Like a virus, but flu nothing against it. It started with Heinzi
Heinzi was always a dream of a man. The hair alone! He had the back always so beautiful long and with highlights, they have really stood in the. The Gaby has always made him. And his Ed Hardy shirts, a dream. Always bought in Antalya on the beach. They looked great. They were a bit tight around the waist, but a butcher has to have a bit of weight, I always say. Cowboy boots anyway.

But then it began. He met there on the Internet so people. A cult. Something to do with perfume. All quite harmless, they claim, but I tell you, brainwashing nothing against it! Heinzi was always Le Mâle. Always a lot, you could smell him from afar. That was nice, it suited him. But then he got more and more mail and everything changed.

At some point he arrived and you didn't smell him from afar. Closer then already again. But fresh, after lemon and also very spicy. Like with a pinch of pepper. But he drinks tequila only very rarely and if then also with salt! It also smelled like tobacco, although Heinzi doesn't smoke at all. And sweet there was nothing, that was no longer the Heinzi!

The changes continued. He had his hair cut and the beautiful highlights, gone. And now also always a white shirt and a jacket. Cowboy boots also gone. And he smells so tart and fresh, like cool moss and flowers. His signature, he says. He's lost weight, too. Just a shadow of his former self.

With the landlord he is already still, but he hardly drinks a Gösser. He prefers to drink a wine, but not an honest Veltliner, but already a Sauvignon. And not from the big bouteille, as usual. And he always smelled discreetly now, like freshly washed. He still has the butcher's shop, after all. There is now everything organic.

So it started and little by little it has caught all. But now even the Hinterseer Michi, no one would have thought.

Last Sunday after church he stood in front of the host. With his GTI. The car was his one and only. At the Wörthersee he was always with it. He even won a prize once. He put a dead pig in the driver's seat. Strapped in according to regulations.

"If you want to interest, you have to provoke."

Then he doused the car with gasoline and set it on fire. Extinguished first of all no one, the Hinterseer Michi is yes the fire chief. Then he still has everyone a perfume sample pressed into the hand. Fantomas was written on it. And Sécrétions Magnifiques. Then at the innkeeper's there was an Aperol spritz...

---------------

So first of all, I don't think Tabac Vert would convince a true apologist of Le Male. Tabac Vert is already very oldschool and relatively serious not to say fun.
He starts fresh with lemon and also already quite spicy. Pepper I perceive and also already equal tobacco. This is actually rather green and does not smoke first. It also comes very soon clearly floral notes, of which I could not say where from. And after about 15 minutes, moss. Lots of moss. Nice, cool moss. Moss is something Rogue does very well anyway, and they don't skimp on it.
Towards the base, it becomes increasingly soapy and woody notes come through. There is probably the cedar in the game, even if it does not stand out for me as often. And at the very end, the tobacco takes over again something the upper hand and the fragrance is even very slightly smoky.
If I didn't know better, I'd say Tabac Vert is a little older, dates from the 70s. Could well be from Aramis, which is quite meant as a compliment. Under the sting, he was a little too dry and fun-free for me to want him.
Durability and silage are perfect. Price-wise, I find him a little too high set.

Thanks to Serafina for the testing opportunity!

To clarify, le mâle is fine. Mullets are fine. So is driving GTI. Cowboy boots are okay. Ed Hardy shirts are horrible, but if you like it, fine too. Gösser is good, especially the Naturradler. Grüner Veltliner, however, is antifreeze. And Wolf Haas is above reproach and may I be forgiven for writing it.

Play It Again Sam
Now this is a scent I could imagine Humphrey Bogart would have worn in that movie Casablanca. It has a charming enigmatic old world sophistication vibe. Just like you have walked out of a classy barbershop in the 1940's.

It opens up with a mentholated bergamot which is soon followed by oakmoss and a slightly honeyed green tobacco. As time moves towards the heart the florals appear right on cue adding a sensual depth to the green moss and tobacco. As we move towards the base after many hours, cedar and sandalwood become more apparent.

All these soft spicy notes are wrapped up in a lovely shaving cream and slight talc accord. And this is the most complex one I have smelled from Rogue. The quality of the ingredients are most impressive and this smells very lovely and is easy to wear.

All in all if you are tired of modern synthetic shallow chemical fragrances and want to smell like a refined old school gentlemen then this is your scent. Wonderful!

Saddle Soap Scrubbed Leather...
Tabac Vert opens with a tinge of green oakmoss and sharp bergamot-laced relatively dry tobacco leaf before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the dry tobacco leaf remains, though gradually becomes obscured by a focal soapy leather accord with supporting floral carnation, and sandalwood and cedar rising from the base. During the late dry-down the tobacco completely vacates, as the soapy leather accord enhanced by supporting sandalwood and cedar remains, now thickened by what resembles slightly sharp, woody vetiver through the finish. Projection is above average and longevity excellent at over 12 hours on skin.

The name Tabac Vert is a bit of a misnomer for this perfume, as while there is some green early and there is also some tobacco neither really is the focus, at least not to the nose of this writer. At its core, Tabac Vert is a soapy leather focused composition, with the soapy leather not that unlike leather being scrubbed in saddle soap. The late dry-down may not actually have vetiver in it, but it sure smells like it does, and is not so unlike the vetiver infused leather of Private Label from Jovoy, though nowhere near as impressive. For me, this one is well-made but a bit of a shoulder shrug, and in the bottom third of the 11 perfumes I have sniffed from the house to date. The bottom line is the $125 per 60 ml bottle Tabac Vert is pleasant smelling, but the "good" 3 stars out of 5 rated composition is not impressive enough to warrant anything greater than a neutral recommendation to all.

SOMETHING VERT
Tabac by name, Vert by nature. Perfumer Manuel Cross has created a whole line free of IFRA restrictions, and this house seems to be an opportunity for perfume lovers to get a taste (or smell) of perfumery as it used to be.

Tabac Vert
It is a gentle tobacco breeze blowing in from the past, when tobacco-focused fragrance compositions were not sweetened with vanilla or tonka bean. With references to vintage Tabarome and Krizia Moods, Tabac Vert presents us with a gentlemanly vision of what tobacco can smell like when played with a subtle hand.
The tobacco leaf in Tabac Vert is green and unsmoked - not yet 100% dry - and therefore has none of that ambery, dried fruit sweetness we are used to in modern tobacco scents. The main supporting character here is a dusty, spicy carnation that adds a slightly vintage feel. However, remarkably, nothing about this scent reads as dated. A peppery sandalwood and a fine dusting of subtle florals – rose and jasmine – give the tobacco-carnation heart a soft roundness that’s comforting without being particularly sweet. Although the references here are all to great tobacco masculines of the past, we can’t help but feel that a woman could totally rock this too.

A gently soapy and creamy, spicy earthy-woody Chypre, balanced by an uplifting spicy-green opening. Nice oakmoss-tobacco combo! Masculine.

Fizzy, mossy tobacco with menthol becomes a faintly damp sweet pipe tobacco, a big dose of oakmoss, and a dusting of warm spices.
