I love this for nostalgic reasons. My mother always had a mini bottle of this lying around the house and I'd always give it a little sniff now and then. So of course it reminds me of everything 80s and my childhood. I've tested many 80s fragrances lately and compared to those (and a lot of them smell the same) its different and not as dated or as typical of the decade. But you'd have to very brave indeed to wear this nowadays. Its pungent and in your face, I can't even describe the notes as it hits your senses to strongly to make anything out.
An interesting fragrance, fresh but spicy. But it is rather odd at the same time and hard to describe, clean but with leather scent and slighty sour smell. Supposed to be unisex but really to masculine and striking for a woman unless your daring with your scents.
This was probabaly a great fragrance back in the 90s but now its kinda boring. Smells like so many other mens fragrances, but to be fair most are copied after this one.
Dissapointed by this one. This smells like so many other men's colognes, there's nothing distictive about it. Its definetly not heady or too strong and could be worn by a woman as it is light enough.
Gorgeous spring/summer fragrance. Fresh citrus with touch of mango. Its not too light that it fades quickly, just the right strength for hot summer weather.
Smells like such a typical mens cologne, very dissapointing when coming from a niche house like Piguet. Headache inducing leather, not for me.
This is a great classy scent: a sweet vanilla, with a slight fruitiness. Only reason I wouldn't buy again is it just didn't make me swoon. There are far better fragrances out there.
Was really surprised at how dissapointing this was. Maybe my skin chemistry but I found it very cloudy. I couldn't even figure out if it was sweet, powdery or floral? It seemed a wash of everything and very dull at that.
Wanted to love this so badly, smells like oil and wet dirt on me. On dry down I eventualy get a hint of leather, but then... nothing, its a mix of unidentifiable notes. So disssapointing.
For such an expensive and famous perfume I was expecting better then this. Tabac Blond has no punch or wow factor and is just a tad dated. It smells very safe and dull to me, especially when compared to something like Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla. Its soft and smooth sweet vanilla with a light smokiness. It is by no means a unpleasant perfume but its hard to see what all the fuss is about.

I don't know why every so often I feel comepelled to buy this rotten product. Maybe cos it was the first mascara I ever bought over ten years ago, and magazines constantly rave about it. I keep forgetting that I don't like it! The brush is too small and doesn't "grip" the lashes, so hardly any product goes on. Its wet, which I like in theory as it means there is no clumping, but it gives no volume or thickness to lashes. It smudges fairly easy too.

When a perfume has the word "paradis" in the title you can't help but expect an exotic summer fragrance. I was very suprised to find this to be a very dense autumn/winter fragrance. It's woody, fruity with a whiff of tobacco. It does exactly what a niche perfume should do...intrigue you. But as with most niche's, they are either wearable or un wearable. While I like this fragrance for its uniqueness, I wouldn't have the conifdence to wear it. I'm just not sure anyone who caught a whiff of this on you would find it attractive.

Can't say this is worth the $250 price tag, its high quality but I wouldn't pay that for a full size bottle. The scent is sweet and warm, but its complex too, even smells a little spicy to me. Over all it is a good unisex perfume but personally it didn't impress me.

For the price and being a niche fragrance this is nothing special. I'd describe it as a smooth amber, evening/dinner perfume. It smells like quite a few other scents that are already on the market and for a lot less. That's not to say it isn't good quality, it is, but if I never smell it again I wouldn't be missing out on anything.

To me this says lounging by a pool in Monte Carlo. Its fresh but exotic, a great vacation scent. I agree with the other reviews: it is a weak concentration for such a pricey perfume, and spraying more on won't help either has it changes the scent far to much. Can't make up my mind if its worth it to purchase a full size after only trying a decant. If I found myself flush with extra cash I probably would splurge.
