    Fleur de Tabac is an incredible tobacco flower type base created by the master perfumer Jean Carles at the end of the 1920s when he worked for Roure. It encapsulates not just tobacco flowers, but the distinct scent of the entire plant as it would have existed in the early 20th century before genetic modification and cross breeding altered it forever.

    Fleur de Tabac was most likely the foundation of the now all-but-disappeared perfume of the similar name by Cherigan in 1929 but its most famous outing was as a key note in Schiaparelli's groundbreaking 1937 fragrance Shocking (also by Jean Carles) as part of its central pink flower accord. 

    The base is presented here in an essentially unmodified form. Miraculously the formula of Mr Carles has survived the onslaught of regulations and the only necessary tweak was the replacement of a trace amount of a prohibed musk.

    Fleur de Tabac is like nothing you have experienced before. It is a truly unique and astonishing piece of fragrance history. This base is proof that perfumery has been, and can again be, an art form.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    IFRA Standards

    Permitted amounts in finished product:

    IFRA 51: 10.86%
    IFRA 49: 10.8%

    These are derived from calculated concentrations which do not replace chromatographic quantification on individual lots. Disclaimer...
