This of a sweet ginger cookie with lots of cloves and amber, thats how its smells on me. I do not think it smells cheap at all but I would say this smells more like a cologne than a EDT. I’m not sure if it has changed a little since it has been opened and I’ve used some of it or if it’s just that my taste has moved on or my nose further developed.
I have a small vintage bottle that I got in one of those old drugstores. Whatever the case, this is very good on my skin now and I like it a lot. It reminds me slightly of Lagerfeld Classic but is more spicy and animalic and also pretty much lacks the tobacco aspect that Lagerfeld has. I went ahead and bought a bottle - on Amazon, why not? Honestly for what some may see as a "budget fragrance," this is quite nice, and imho does not smell "cheap"....
But this is still powerful with some strong dominating notes, so I do not think this is office-friendly or crowd-safe, nor anywhere you will be in close quarters with someone for all day/hours.
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 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.
At different times I get different notes, maybe depending on how active I am. This fragrance is a trip to memory lane since it was the perfume my grandfather used to wear.
It's a pretty square 2 oz splash bottle, thin in width, screw on black cap. I like Tabu, but I wanted some vintage dust/musk/animal/skank. It smells like an ambery "root beer-isk" musk that is slightly dirty in a weird sexual way LOL.
This is a fragrance "TO TEST" for ALL fragrance collectors and people who like the way fragrances performed "back in the day".
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.
I think its a great addition to your collection if you are interested in perfume history, plus its really cheap. In a good way, if there is such a thing as a good pissy smell. The patchouli is clearly detectable in here too, adding to the hippyish incense vibe. it was one of my first vintage blind buys and it was just waaaay too "old granny" so I sold it. (Reformulations and the drug store status/price I suppose.) As far as Tabu-type scents go, I prefer original Obsession. but here we are in winter already (November in Upper Michigan) and I LOVE BOTH NOW! I started a cozy day at home with Youth Dew cologne on my torso (finely misted), a drop of the YD bath oil on my clavicle "dip", and then about 6 hours later-- put on Tabu cologne over the whole package. I can tell I like it because I keep smelling my arm. I avoided this for the longest time, thinking this would be heavy and overpowering.
