A true iconic perfume for 100 years already, way ahead of its time: leather and smokey elegance.
A journey through time to the roaring twenties
Picture a smoky bar in the 1920s. A woman in a short dress walks in. Her perfume mixes with tobacco, heavy, exciting, and sensual. Do you want to go with her?
What makes Tabac Blond so special?
What is interesting about this perfume is that in 1919 Ernest Daltroff first put a leather accord in a perfume, creating the Dry Woods fragrance family. The smokiness of Russian leather captured by tobacco leaf, cedar, iris, and linden blossom as a fresh counterpart.
An iconic classic for 100 years
Tabac Blond was a very daring scent in 1919 and it fitted in seamlessly with the zeitgeist; women who wore shorter skirts, and even pants, and started smoking cigarettes. This iconic fragrance still appeals to the daring, seductive, and intellectual woman.
Appt quote about Tabac Blond on Now Smell This: "Tabac Blond embodies the wit and intelligence of chic".
Or The Scented Hound: "self-assured, earthy, grounded".
A unique olfactory signature
Since its founding in 1904 (!), Caron has been the lead example of pure genuine passion within the classic French perfume world. The founder Ernest Daltroff was one of the perfumers who formed the perfume industry and whose influence is still noticeable nowadays, just like Jacques Guerlain and Ernest Beaux of Chanel. Together with his creative director and maîtresse, Félicie Wanpouille, Daltroff created legendary fragrances including Narcisse Noir (1911), N’aimez que moi (1917) and Tabac Blond (1919). The aromatic Pour un Homme (1934) is seen by many French as 'the' classic fragrance for men.
A new creative tandem
Since 2020, businesswoman Ariane de Rothschild and perfumer Jean Jacques determine the course of Caron. They combine their shared love of fragrance, luxury, and tradition to bring the house of Caron into the 21st century. In addition to a focus on the classics of the brand, they will launch contemporary perfumes of the same exceptional quality.
