This is going to be a brief review because this fragrance is straightforward and simple. It's tobacco, and that's it.
The simplicity of Tabaco Latino is both good and bad. The good thing is that tobacco fragrances smell really good, and there's no question that's all this is. It's neither a dark bitter tobacco note (like in Quorum) nor a heavy sweet pipe tobacco accord. We're talking about a semi-sweet, dry, woody tobacco accord, like what you smell in The Dreamer (Versace), Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme or the base of Bogart Pour Homme. I think I've described it before as the smell of unsmoked cigarettes. It's not my favorite type of tobacco accord, but I do like it. I personally prefer the bitter cigar tobacco note you get in Quorum, but so be it.
And that's all you get. Other than a teeny burst of citrus in the very beginning, all you smell from beginning to end is the same tobacco scent, with no development whatsoever. It's a well made fragrance that smells quite good, but smelling exactly the same thing for 15 hours (yes, longevity is that good) can wear you out.
Despite its tiresome linearity, I do like Tabaco Latino and recommend it to fans of tobacco fragrances.
