Bravo plum... ?
Who would expect a tobacco fragrance from a perfume called "Tobacco"? Okay, but a few. Including me. These expectations are driven against the wall from front to back. There's enough criticism for that. But what comes after disappointment? There are enough examples where fragrance and name collide and in the end there is still a success...
Actually, I was expecting it to work out well between us, maybe even radio. I like too much the scents mentioned in comparisons, from certain Tom Ford heavyweights to "Pure Havane". Even if I turn 30 this year, I still like sweet, dense, oriental scents. Maturing taste and thick sugar bombers (as long as they are well made of course!) are not mutually exclusive. But Tobacco and I never got really warm. A vanilla, lame and cumbersome plum scent - the word plum alone makes it hard for me to believe that I don't like it. Yes, it is. Not just in terms of expectations. He's just too... easy. Too sweet, too sticky. Not refined enough and of course not suitable for the summer. In winter, he deserves another chance. But the great love seems far away. Sometimes the chemistry, the vibe, the feeling is right - here everything seems fixed, slow, simple-minded. Smells like the German national team played at this World Cup. Okay, not so bad. But an eight... candidate is different for me. Even if it's neat, valuable, and cracked
Flacon: weighs kilo and is noble, thick glass - nothing for the handbag.
Sillage: close to a Brummer
Durability: scratches the double digit range - 9 hours loose.
Conclusion: despite name fraud: if you like sweet, sticky and concentrated firecrackers, from "Tabac Rouge" to "Plum Japonaise", you might also like this Franck Boclet. But he got on my nerves surprisingly fast and stuck me full. Although I actually belong to the target group with this taste. Maybe it's too hot right now. Or the fragrance is just half as well made as its role models and too one-dimensional... Yes, I do. You can't see the good smell in front of all the plums. If there should be one.
