    Dark, rich, luxurious. A burgundy brown satin over antique lace. A perfect blend without any one note standing out, but playing out together in perfect harmony. Floral+ spicy, tobacco+ vanilla.

    Smells like “a classic perfume” – many of them sprayed over time, wafting up as you step onto the carpet of the perfumery, all rolled into one. FB worthy. Warm and comforting. I agree that no one note stands out, except maybe a touch of aldehydes, but peeking through… so maybe it’s the geranium.

    My love for tobacco scents started a few months ago when I first tried vintage Tabac Blond and fell in love.
    Parfum de Luxe reminds me a bit of the older perfume. I think it’s that the delicacy of the tobacco plays so beautifully with the richness of the florals and spices. Truly a beautiful perfume.

    I am also a huge fan of Caron Tabac Blond and of tobacco scents in general. I agree that this has a hint of Tabac Blond. It is a little softer, though, and (for me) more suitable for everyday wear, because it feels like a smooth chypre without the more “out there” smokiness of Tabac Blond.

    Ooooh. This is gorgeous. Huge fan of Tabac Blond and this is right up my alley.
    Simply divine.

    I’m surprised to see that I haven’t reviewed this here before, given that it’s one of my very favorite DSH parfums. As a woman who was raised on what are now considered vintages, finding Dawn Spencer Hurwitz when I came to the time in my life that my nest emptied and I could afford to have a few luxuries was a miracle. Parfum de Luxe is one example of why this is. She makes such beautiful perfume – all the great aspects of the best vintages but her own, modern at the same time as classic. Parfum de Luxe is a deep, rich, just right dirty oriental (that might be classified properly as a chypre but I’m just happy to smell it whatever genre it may be) I am fortunate not to have to go to an office so no concerns about whether this would be appropriate or not. I have the parfum and it wears close enough that I would imagine it would be fine. The tobacco notes are very soft and like most of the DSH scents everything is blended beyond any thoughts of picking through it. It’s the sort of perfume I am repeatedly drawn to while wearing it as this note or that arrives. Divine is indeed a good word for Parfum de Luxe.
