“The timeless masterpiece “Apocalypse now” by Francis Ford Coppola takes place in Vietnam in 1969. Major influences for the Chinese Tobacco scent was the powerful scene featuring Aurore Clement and Martin Sheen smoking opium and the classic line “I love the smell of napalm in the morning”. The title of the movie was actually inspired by a button badge popular with hippies in the 1960s saying ”Nirvana now”.
