Sorry, this product is temporarily out of stock.
[Note: This is not a dupe of Tabac nor does it smell anything like it!]
Ahhh, The Simpsons! Who could forget Homer's "Tomacco"? What do you get when you genetically combine the tomato with the tobacco plant? "Tomacco" of course!
In yet another ode to pop culture brilliance I was inspired to bring this fictional plant to life, at least it's wondrous aromatics.
So what does a Tomacco Plant smell like? Good question.
TAMAC is Verdant, Fresh, Crisp with a touch of Sunshine...yet refined. It's true, there is a depth and sophistication in this green homage to warmer months that can't be put into words but needs to be experienced.
What I can assure you of is the scent will be many different things to many different folks. I personally get Chuck Norris shopping for meat at a local farmer's market with every whiff I take. (Really)
Although it has long been debated whether humans can actually communicate via pheromones - the chemical signals secreted by animals to help find a mate - Researchers have found that scent of Hedione generates ‘sex-specific activation patterns’ in the nasal tissue which links to the brain. It is the first time that a scent has been known to activate the pheromone receptor VN1R in humans.
“These results constitute compelling evidence that a pheromone effect different from normal olfactory perception indeed exists in humans,” says scent researcher Prof Hanns Hatt fro, Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany.
Hedione (chemical name methyl dihydro-jasmonate) – derived from the Greek word “hedone”, for fun, pleasure, lust – has a pleasant fresh jasmine-magnolia scent and is used in many perfumes.
It is synthesised from the organic compound methyl jasmonate which was discovered in 1957 and which is important in plants for seed germination, root growth, flowering, fruit ripening, and senescence.
