Tabac/Maurer & Wirtz announces a new scent

Post by brothers » Wed Jul 10, 2019 9:33 pm

It's called Craftsman by Maurer & Wirtz, makers of Tabac. Reportedly available mid-July. Supposedly the full line, hopefully including shaving soap that performs as well as Tabac Original.

Craftsman? Hopefully cedar and leather...

Let's hope for a soap. Tabac released that other scent a few years back and was, I believe, deodorants and aftershave, cologne etc. A new tabac scentbto replace Irisch Moose would be perfect.

I think someone found this information on BaseNotes or some such website. I think some guys can figure out how something smells by reading lists like this, but I'm not one of them. I did see vetiver which I like, and then I saw leather, which is not my cup of tea.

Promising, but note pyramids are a marketing ploy and a crapshoot. Still, no amber listed should mean no ambroxan overdose as is the current fashion. I will try a shave soap if there is one

Interesting. The Maurer and Wirtz site lists it as “a fragrance for the man who takes matters into his own hands.” Further down the page they list EDT, aftershave, shower gel and deodorant but unfortunately no soap. Clearly not “a fragrance for a man who has many vices.”
