I started using Tabu when I was in High School in the 40s--after I married, my husband always knew this was his "get out of trouble" gift and I continued wearing it all of our 57 years we were married,now these last years without him , I continue to wear it and it somehow keeps us together in memory. I have had younger people stop me on the street and tell me my perfume reminds me of one their mom used to wear-so now in my 80s I am still a walking , although rather slowly, advertisement for Tabu!!!!

Was very happy to find Tabu, but extremely disappointed with the product. Does not last at all.....very watered down from the original. Used to wear this eons ago and got so many compliments.....especially from men!
It was a very heavy, very long lasting perfume and it came in a "Jeannie" type bottle covered in a black rubbery type material. And it smelled even better after a day's wear!
I would put it on an hour before going to work so it wouldn't be so strong.
Tabu isn't for everyone, but having said that, now that it's a much lighter fragrance, it may surprise you. Before buying,I would find a store that may carry it and sample before buying. And if it's not your taste, no need to put rude remarks about it....it just wasn't for you. I don't like patchouli.
I think this perfume brings back a lot of memories for us "older folk" and that's why we're so happy to find it! It really is too bad it didn't keep up with other fragrances that are still available because I believe the comments wouldn't be so severe if this product were readily available.
Love Tabu,but unfortunately the company changed something which didn't need changing.....too bad.
