Until recently I associated this fragrance with little old ladies. I purchased it on a whim because I needed a body lotion and the perfume was side benefit with the purchase. The whole package was...

I can remember both my mother and Grandmother having bottles of this displayed on their vanities (along with Canoe, Musk and Tigress) I was too much into the new modern fragrances to give Tabu any...

I hope my words in this review are tasty because, I will be eating them. For years I have made atrocious fun of this perfume. I have compared the worst perfumes I've ever smelled to Tabu which I...

A cheap-smelling perfume which would be smashingly sexy on a woman in a very elegant dress with elbow-gloves. Supposedly this was a favorite of Ava Gardner, and I could imagine her pulling this...

The dusting powder......is extremely female. There is a certain power to that, don't you think? I recommend, without reservation.

Wow !! This has quite a long shelf life. I recently unearthed a bottle which I purchased back in the mid-1970s. It was half full and smelled exactly the same as I remembered. Believe me, you don't...

There are some perfumes that make you feel powerful and this is one of them as well as Opium. I have a mini bottle that i purchased 10 years ago which came as a set of 3 for a ridiculously low...

I wore Tabu as a teenager. I hadn't tried it in years. But recently I got some with a lot of perfumes at auction. Tabu is the same warm oriental musky scent that I remember. Has an aroma of...

The best way to describe this scent is to say that this is a *classic* fragrance. Tabu by Dana was developed in 1932 by Jean Charles. "Tabu was created by perfumer Jean Carles (working for Roure...

I bought a set of Tabu for 10 bucks, the larger spray bottle and a little dab on cologne. Initially I tried dabbing it on, but I think it was too concentrated that way. I then tried a fine mist...

I love Tabu. It was the first perfume I wore as a teenager that I picked out for myself. I liked it so well that it was my signature scent for years. It's never been obnoxious on me, dries down...

What a treasure! Wish I had found this one sooner. It is definitely seductive and spicy. Apply lightly...for best results. This is a dark exotic woman best worn at night. This one has...

I love this. It smells like something I've worn before--maybe My Sin ? It goes on sweet and dries down resinous and a little dry and very slightly soapy, in a good way. I have Habanita on my...

Tabu has always been misunderstood. It was, and still can be if you can get your hands on a decent bottle, one of the most seductive scents ever made. But like many perfumes it can all go...

Starts off more old-lady-ish, dries down to a bit more spice and less powder. It's a very nostalgic scent. When I put it on, at first I feel like my Mommy is in the room with me. Then later, I feel...

I was given this in high school for my 16th birthday. I proudly showed my gift to my mother who flatly advised, "If you want to smell like a whore, spray yourself with that." I had no idea.
