About Tabu Perfume

The first fragrance of the Dana Classic Fragrances was Tabu, created by Jean Carles in 1932.   Carles was well known for his wonderful creations made of unusual materials, and had been the nose behind such genius compositions as Christian Dior Miss Dior, Carven Ma Griffe, Schiaparelli Shocking, and many of the Lucien Lelong fragrances.  Legend has it that Dana Classic Fragrances, originally a Spanish company, gave Carles instructions to create a perfume that would suit a “puta”, or prostitute.  
Thus, Tabu was created, sensual and shocking.  It has top notes of bergamot, coriander, neroli, orange, and spices; a heart of clove bud oil, clover, jasmine, narcissus, oriental rose, and ylang ylang; and a base of amber, benzoin, cedar, civet, moss, musk, patchouli, sandalwood, and vetiver.
