The Story Behind Tabac Vert
"In 2012 when I was working on the formula for Chypre-Siam, one of my many experiments had a woody accord that vaguely reminded me of the original Carlo Corinto. I set it aside. A few weeks later I was scouring the internet for an affordable replacement bottle of Guerlain Derby, then the idea hit: Can I somehow rework that Carlo Corinto-like woody accord into something more along the lines of Derby? Probably not, but I can perhaps rework it into the bone-dry woody notes in One Man Show and Krizia Uomo and turn out a woody chypre fragrance. And so it began!
The prototypes went through many changes over the course of five years. I eventually decided to make it a tobacco fragrance on a woody, chypre base and created a deep green rosey, jasmine carnation-like base to tie the two together. I added some sandalwood notes to tame the dry cedar base and Tabac Vert was finally born.
Some have actually compared Tabac Vert to Vintage Tabarome -I can actually see the similarities. I originally wanted a Derby-like fragrance but instead took hints from Krizia and Bogart. At the end of the day Tabac Vert just is what it is: A classic old-school style woody chypre."
