Tabac Tabou Extrait de Parfum
Few fragrance houses have featured tobacco as a starring note, but perfumer Marc-Antoine Corticchiato feels it is a perfect fit for Parfum d’Empire, since tobacco ties in with one of the initial uses of perfume: sacred rituals. And with it, the very origin of the word ‘perfume’, per fumum, means ‘through smoke’.
In Tabac Tabou, the tobacco leaf unfolds nuances of fresh hay and tawny savanna in a penetrating fragrance lush with rich essences. Set aflame by the mulled-fruit accents of sunburnt immortelle, tobacco curls its tawny plumes around a spirited spray of narcissus, leather and horses’s mane. A whiff of the Havana, honey, heated skin, wild grass.... and a tribute to a plant held sacred by the Indian people of the Americas who used it to purify, heal or conjure dream visions.
While it is a part of Parfum d’Empires permanent collection, the fragrance will be produced each year in restricted quantities, with the label indicating the vintage.
Why we're addicted: A deeply intoxicating, spiritual blend with roots in mysticism and history.

His dream for Parfum d’Empire is that it is an invitation to conquer the realm of the senses. Combining an exuberant use of the finest precious ingredients with the feeling of balance that characterizes classic, grand French perfumery, he has developed The Scents of Conquest. To achieve this powerful idea, he goes back to the original sense of scent, from the earliest historical references and in every culture - seduction and sacred spirituality. Parfum d’Empire emphatically pushes the boundaries to excess to create this masterfully-crafted collection that leaves a vibrating impact.
