I like the fragrance Costamor Tabacca but I hate saying the name aloud. I feel like some backwoods redneck requesting some chew, “Hand me my Tabacca”. I just can’t say it without shuddering.
Tabacca opens with a honeyed, spiced chamomile with the darkest brewed black tea (slightly tannic). With time, Tabacco grows sweeter on me, more honeyed and with more powder with traces of steaming chai in the background. It’s a honeyed, warm tobacco amber. The dry-down is a spiced, boozy amber with dry woods.
Tabacca reminds me of Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale with By Kilian Back to Black. In fact, if you like Back to Black but don’t like the price, I urge you to give this one a try. I think that you *could* be just as happy with this one ($75 vs. $235). Out of the Costamor line, Tabacca is my absolute favorite. It’s the sort of cozy sweet thing that I like wearing on damp winter days. On a side note, when I do side by side testing, I actually prefer Costamor over the By Kilian on my skin.
Notes listed include aromatic spices, apple peel, jasmine, rose tea, raw tobacco leaves, dried tobacco leaves, rare woods and amber.
Give Tabacca a try if you are looking for a tobacco fragrance. Or if you like perfumes like By Kilian Back to Black, Capsule Parfums Jaunt, Providence Perfumes Cocoa Tuberose, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and/or Patch NYC Pipe. Tabacca is unisex and a nice choice for cooler weather.
I find projection and longevity to be above average.
The 1.7 oz bottle retails for $75 at Luckyscent. I think it’s a great value. Samples are also available for purchase.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Sweet amber tobacco. It’s a gourmand leaning tobacco but without tons of vanilla. I think it’s an awesome scent and I really think it’s awesome that retails for under $100!
