Tabac Tabou takes us to the origins of perfume

Often used during rituals, it made it possible to come into contact with the gods and had an almost magical appearance. By proudly wearing this scent, it is therefore a bit like bringing with you a little spirituality and a lot of history. Moreover, the word “perfume” takes its origin from its ancestral volutes. Originally, it was called “Per Fumare” in Latin, which literally means “By the smoke”. Thus, Tabac Tabou returns to its origins. Tobacco gives a new and timeless class to this fragrance. Whether it is exquisite for some or disarming for others, one thing is certain: Tabac Tabou will not leave you indifferent.
