Straight to the point: a fantastic contemporary tobacco scent, if not the best modern revisiting of this ingredient, fairly deserving its place next to “all-times” classics like Havana. Powerful and martial, a well-engineered blend capturing and enhancing all nuances of tobacco, from humid to sweet and from earthy to smoky. The opening shows a bold resinous-spicy and slightly candied feel like in some Lutens (but also Norma Kamali incense, in a way), with silky notes of honey and labdanum, which then progressively get darker and drier making Tabac Aurea reach a sort of “zen” of pure smell of tobacco. All smells thick and dense, incredibly harmonic and solid, a modern symphony ranging from the darkest smokiness of cigarettes to the “wet” richness of freshly-cut tobacco leaves. Almost like a comprehensive “essay” of all the facets of this fantastic material. All wrapped in a warm, sweet, subtle aura of vanillin and resins providing a thin frame of mellow elegance. Rich, thick and linear (three features quite common in contemporary US niche), bold and refined, and also totally versatile. Great persistence, practically immortal on clothes. A must for all tobacco lovers, or more generally, of any fan of “contemporary dark” scents.

Pipe Tobacco Perfume
Sonoma Scent Studio TABAC AUREA is primarily a pipe tobacco perfume, with a touch of leather and wood thrown into the mix. I find this composition fairly masculine and would rather smell it on a bearer of a Y chromosome than on myself. I have no objection, in principle, to smelling like a pipe tobacco store complete with mahogany and cherry wood shelving and leather armchairs, but I don't really have any desire to smell like one, either.

TABAC AUREA is certainly a nice blend, similar in some ways to Tom Ford TOBACCO VANILLE, but quite a bit less sweet. There is apparently tonka in TABAC AUREA, but it is very low key, as are the patchouli and the amber to my nose. The SSS beefy burnt cedar note is present here, but fortunately it's not a focus!
