Want it, need it: Curio Noir’s Tobacco Night


I’m completely unashamed to admit that I am a massive fan of the Curio Noir range of home fragrances, one could say bordering on the obsessive. Pretty much everything that creator Tiffany Jeans unleashes upon the world is pure beauty, and her newest offering is no different.
Called Tobacco Night, it is a rather masculine and beautiful scent – reportedly inspired by the lingering musky sweetness tobacco leaves in the heavy night air. It includes notes of Sage, Coriander, Elemi, Amber, Musk and Dry Tobacco Leaves, and was unveiled this morning over morning tea of coffee and croissants at Simon James’ concept store within Takapuna’s Department Store.
The preternaturally stylish Ms. Jeans was on site to introduce the scent, samples of which were scattered amongst a beautiful display featuring herbs, well-thumbed hardback books and her great-grandfather’s impressive collection of pipes. It literally looked as good as it smelled, and was the perfect way to present the incredibly warm, glowing fragrance.
The handmade candle arrives in a beautiful hand blown amber-coloured glass inspired by apothecary of days long past, which will make for a gorgeous vase once the candle has burned down. I have several already lining the walls of my office and can attest to the face that they get more than a few admiring glances!
I can’t wait to get my hands on Tobacco Night, which I’m sure will become part of my fragrance soundtrack to the coming winter months.
