Vintage Perfume Ads

May 18, 2009

tabu 1

I love old perfume ads, and these for Tabu by Dana are particularly great. Deliciously melodramatic, featuring dreamy scenes ripped straight from the pages of Harlequin novels. Still, despite the bodice-ripping scenes, for the most part the women seem strong and self-possessed. Tabu is one of my favourite old scents, and hopefully these ads will bring as much pleasure as the perfume has brought me.

  1. Love the ads, Tabu is soooo deliciously naughty.

  2. I was reading some reviews about Tabu.
    I pay too much attention to the base notes of the ” niche ” fragances made today and costing our pockets out, a fortune for 50ml.
    we do not find : ambergris, indian vetiver khus hush,castoreum, civet, oakmoss,frankincense, mosses. oud ,aoud reals….
    because :
    they are very expensive raw-materials.
    I was reading all the ingredients of TABU.
    It is amazing. This fragance at least is good at at its best is wonderful.
    I tried, and found the vintages.
    I only smelled…
    marvelous smell, and I tell you candidly speaking, many, many niches fragances, are in a lower level of TABU, mostly the one I ahve , the vintage.
    Please give me your opinion cbecause i am an addicted of base notes made in tiffany…( animalic and not the same blá, blá blá : sandlewood, vetiver, patchouli, amber…and vice , trice, bi versa..)
    congratulations for the shots, veru autentiques.
    all the best
