Tabacco Toscano tells you a warm story, inspired by 800 years of tradition, just waiting to become your story.
Inspired by the famous tuscan tobacco leaves a bouquet of woody oriental notes blended with smoky vanilla base notes.
Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella's Tabacco Toscano fragrance is a bouquet of woody oriental notes that blend well with smoky vanilla base notes. Catherine de’ Medici Queen of France used tobacco as a remedy for migraines. In fact the plant became known as “Herba catharinaria”.
A mysterious and velvety fragrance. It opens with notes of bergamot and blond tobacco leaves. In the middle, the dark notes of birch and leather are embraced by a warm amber note. On the base, precious woods combine with the soft note of vanilla and musk.

Tuscano is a stunner and its scent profile can definitely compete with contemporary contenders. The opening is fresh tobacco leaf with a touch of smokiness, sweetness, and smooth suede. On the skin, the opening is quite fleeting but sprayed on clothes it lasts a bit longer. As Tobacco Tuscano dries down, powdery vanilla steps forward and is what makes this fragrance perfectly unisex. The overall combination is smooth and just a touch sweet—comforting and cozy. This is my favorite tobacco scent of all time and I've smelled many. The downside is definitely the longevity. I don't mind that it doesn't project, but because it's an eau de cologne concentration, it's not meant to be long-lasting. Otherwise, this would be a five-star fragrance. I hope for stronger concentration options in the future.
