I discovered it after reading reviews of other vintage jems that I own. It's probably horribly watered down compared to its vintage self but I don't mind having never smelt the vintage.
I was intrigued by the lady of the night mythology behind this scent and had to add it to my collection. If I want a longer lasting root beer experience I will reach for my signature Youth Dew anyway.
I can understand the price now, because the bottle looks really cheap drugstore scent. The first impression was a Buddhist temple the smell of lots of incense sticks. I know you need to wait for some fragrances and after a while this odour changed into quite a sweet spicy scent.
I am not sure if I like it now or not, so I will keep on trying to find out.
Other reviewers have mentioned it seems to be missing it's original oakmossy patchouli base, so I have decided tomorrow to layer it with patchouli oil and Aromatics Elixir body cream and see if that fills the gap. Update: My co-worker loves old school sexy oriental juice.
So I gave her a mini of Tabu to wear at work (I work for a fragrance free brand gasp) she LOVED it. Was shopping on my lunch at the drug store in the mall.
This is about the current formulation, which I understand captures the essence of the scent. FINDINGS: This is a very odd fragrance, but it is strangely modern by the late 80s standards. I am not saying it smells like them, but it has the musky nature of Kouros (NOT as animalic and pissy LOL) and the sweetness of Ted Lapidus Pour Homme.
Today I bought my first full sized new formula (chello,base violin shaped bottle) of Tabu at the drug store in my neighbourhood. It's like the little root beer flavoured soda candies I used to love getting in my lunch at school when I was growing up in the 1990's.I wear it sometimes to remember my grandfather and always makes me a bit teary eyed when I wear it around the house. From Tabu I get a sort of moist and warm amber, spices, sweetness, an incense kind of accord, a dry and woody vetiver, mixed florals and finally, a cassis type of a slightly pissy smell. I got into vintages after exhausting the gourmand genre (haha) and I tried Youth Dew prematurely.... It's sweeter than YD, but still too musky and old/generic. The first time I put it on it was too sweet, and reminded me of toilet bowl cleaner. Then, a week later I retrieved it from the bin and gave it one more try. One spray only, but after the drydown it's quite nice. I only get a compliment when someone gets near, or close to me. After all, the same nose that created this, Jean Charles, also created Miss Dior, back in 1947.
