Today is a rich smoky incense aroma with wafts of spice. He was a very stylish man and oh boy he loved his cigars and his Tabu!
This fragrance is very unisex in my opinion, on my skin it smells warm, spicy and smoky. This is SO much better to me now than when I first tried it about a year ago.
At different times I get different notes, maybe depending on how active I am. This fragrance is a trip to memory lane since it was the perfume my grandfather used to wear.This of a sweet ginger cookie with lots of cloves and amber, thats how its smells on me. I do not think it smells cheap at all but I would say this smells more like a cologne than a EDT. I’m not sure if it has changed a little since it has been opened and I’ve used some of it or if it’s just that my taste has moved on or my nose further developed.I have a small vintage bottle that I got in one of those old drugstores. Whatever the case, this is very good on my skin now and I like it a lot. It reminds me slightly of Lagerfeld Classic but is more spicy and animalic and also pretty much lacks the tobacco aspect that Lagerfeld has. I went ahead and bought a bottle - on Amazon, why not? Honestly for what some may see as a "budget fragrance," this is quite nice, and imho does not smell "cheap"....It smells like an ambery "root beer-isk" musk that is slightly dirty in a weird sexual way LOL.This is a fragrance "TO TEST" for ALL fragrance collectors and people who like the way fragrances performed "back in the day".
