Tabac Blond, a true iconic perfume by Caron for 100 years already, was way ahead of its time: leather and aromatic tobacco elegance.
A journey through time, back to the roaring twenties
Picture a smoky bar in the 1920s. A self-confident and elegant woman walks in. Her perfume mixes with tobacco, heavy, exciting, and sensual.
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/Tobacco fragrance family. The smokiness of Russian leather captured.
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”.

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 pioneers in perfumery. Together with his creative director and maîtresse, Félicie Wanpouille, Daltroff created legendary fragrances including Narcisse Noir (1911), N’aimez que moi (1917), Tabac Blond (1919) and Pour un Homme (1934). Since 2020, businesswoman Ariane de Rothschild and perfumer Jean Jacques determine the course of Caron. They combine their shared love for 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 create contemporary perfumes of the same exceptional quality.
A classic chypre is characterized by top notes of citrus, often bergamot; a full-floral heart, like jasmine and rose; and mossy, woody notes in the base, such as patchouli, oak moss, and labdanum. For those who appreciate fragranced complexity and layered compositions, chypres are very exciting and worthwhile to explore!
Jean Jacques worked for 22 years at Takasago, this Japanese company is one of the largest producers of fragrances and flavorings in the world. Here he created perfumes such as Piano Santal for L'Orchestre, Gentleman Only by Givenchy. Since 2019, Jean is the house perfumer of Caron and together with Ariane de Rothschild, the owner of the company, he creates all new perfumes for this iconic perfume house. Heritage and modernity are beautifully combined.
