  • Feuilles de Tabac transports you to the woody, smoky, romantic brasseries of Saint-Germain. Complex Cuban cascarilla oil and pimento berries contrast with a cooling heart of pine needles and velvet sage with a base of tonka bean, tobacco and Malay patchouli. Its haunting, addictive quality makes it a good choice for men
