    Tabac is is great stuff. Nothing wrong with bowl lathering, I get my best shaves with Williams when I bowl lather it.

    Would you describe Tabac as having "clean, fresh" tobacco? (Y'know, as in the way I've seen the ingredient of "clean dirt" described? )

    I would say it's a fresh tobacco scent with some floral scent added to it. It doesn't smell like grandma's purse, or burnt tobacco like I've read in some of the other forums.

    I could appreciate that, for sure. Unfortunately, I experienced the burnt tobacco once. I've seen people here say, in jest I would presume, that a particular soap made it feel like they "lit their face on fire". That's what I experienced with my burnt tobacco.

    To be honest, I can't pinpoint the scent. A lot of people have stated that Tabac smells like Tabac. I have even read someone swear it smells like a newborn's poop. I don't smell the whole baby poo thing. The tabac-original.com website states;
    Top:
    • Neroli
    • Lemon
    • Black Pepper
    • Bergamot
    • Petit Grain
    Heart:
    • Lavender
    • Camomite
    • Geranium
    • Oakwood absolu
    Fond (Base):
    • Carnation
    • Sandalwood
    • Vetiver
    • Musk
    • Ambergis

    Many people, when they smell Tabac, are expecting a "cured tobacco leaf" scent, when in reality, Tabac tends toward the Tobacco "Flower". This is a horse of a different color.

    Yes a horse of another kettle of fish. I just call it a big ole bucket of German goodness. I laughed at a guy that said it smelled like a cigar store. Nope..flower shop maybe.

    To me it just smells like musk. AV or jovan, but I'd say it's a richer musk. I love it
