I have mixed feelings about Tabac Blond. It may not last very long, but I enjoyed its subtle flickers in the earlier stages. I can get past powderiness if the rest of a perfume is great, but leather often goes sour on me, so if this is a bit sour on YOU, well…. A slightly larger amount increased the time-frame to about 13 hours. I still have it, and treasure it. For me though, the overall effect is so much more than the sum of the parts. Yet, a ton of men love Knize Ten which has been also reformulated into a very powdery scent these days, so who knows.

Thank you, dear lady — for all your kindnesses spanning the years. Flickers of lime and vanilla quietly trail behind, but the main bouquet is of powdered carnation, lightly infused with animalic leather. Thank you Diane for running such a wonderful bastion of french perfumary! I am in Virginia, USA. It smells just like the powdered, scented paper in an empty pack of cigarettes. May it be a good year for all of us and perfume! I wish Diane the best.
