My first time with a a full Tabac immersion (I’ve had the soap for years but the others are new). Loved the AS. It had a very nice dry down scent. No sting, left my face a tad dry, but that’s too be expected. Applied Nivea as balm. Let dry, and EdT. It’s nice and opens up to a mossy bottom combined with a dead rose scent, but it doesn’t have a lot of silage or legs. I get a smell here and there, but it’s more personal.

the soap, as you all know is great, takes a lot of water and can be turned into a really wet, slick and thick lather. The AS was a tabac smell. No burn at all.It did what you want a good AS to do, leave your skin feeling clean and nice, a tad dry but that is not unexpected. Thr EdT was much more floral at the opening and dried down to it’s version of tabac we all know and love or hate. The EdT does not have good silage or longevity. I do catch smells of it, hours later and it’s great. For the price, I don’t think you are expecting silage or projection.

I love how my bathroom smells and the full immersion into one scent.
