The word "feuilles" should be taken seriously here because this is a leafy, herbacious fragrance that provides the antithesis for honeyed pipe tobacco fragrances that ring the bell for hookahs or rich libraries. However, Feuilles de Tabac is as potent on me in its own way and never takes a break - it smells better on my clothes but I usually do not like spraying fragrance on my clothes. Anyway, top notes are gold coloured tobacco leaves providing a raw, sharp, strangely medicinal and slightly off smell on my skin. Soon comes the sage and remains pretty prominent throughout, adding a fougere tone to Feuilles de Tabac. The perfume doesn't calm on my skin and kind of sits on top of it rather than blending with me, and it has a masculine tone which is not particularly interesting. What's interesting though is that there is something in it that's very similar to my favourite Miller Harris, Fleur Oriental. Unfortunately, what works so well there does not work here for me. This would be a very interesting and attractive fragrance for a man, say on a borrowed jumper around a camp fire but I'm not attracted to it on myself. I know that it smells different on different peoople so do not think this would be a good choice for a blind-buy adventure. 2.5.
