Reviews of Vermeil for Men

Oh Yes!! Although there is no indication of tobacco as a note, the collection of ingredients creates an accord of tobacco in this Masculine perfume. The opening has an astringency reminiscent of Maxim's. The sugar content is kept to a minimum by using the natural floral sweetness of Freesia, Rose, Ylang Ylang I guess. I get whispers of Fumerie Turque(pissy Currant) and Lagerfeld Cologne. Mossy, musky background creates a little earthiness and adds longevity.
Nice quality for pocket change.

Stardate 20160804:

An animalic powerhouse in the vein of Balenciaga PH but much more wearable.
People get tobacco I don't, I get some tea but it is all drowned by the loud sweet animalic blast.
A must for all and at $20 for 100ml for a vintage FB (I doubt there was ever a reformulation) a no brainer.

Opening is synthetic to my nose. After a hour it mellows but still smells synthetic. The dry down is fair but alas doesn't last for long. For the price I would give it a go. It is a little similar to Zino by Davidoff in the opening (Zino being A LOT smoother). Try to Enjoy.

A classy tobacco with a slight boozy twist. All around good fragrance for the money. 8/10

Tobacco and booze: a fine combination

The opening is boozy with a touch of citrus and a herbal undertone. After the first hour a very nice, deep note of mildly sweet pipe tobacco takes over, and dominates until the end. There is a transient admixture of a gentle amber, and towards the end a touch of oakmoss appears temporarily. Overall this is quite linear but well done, a confident strong scent with good silage and projection. Longevity is decent on my skin - over five hours.

Tobacco On The Cheap That Doesn't Smell It...

Vermeil for Men opens with nose burning alcohol before turning to an herbal lemon citrus tandem with just a touch of underlying oakmoss in support. Progression from this point on is very linear with the fragrance first displaying a slightly synthetic smelling rose that soon joins an herbal booze-laced authentic smelling sweet smoky pipe tobacco with hints of underlying cinnamon, patchouli and oakmoss. Projection is deceptively excellent and longevity is outstanding at over 15 hours on skin.

Vermeil for Men is not going to set the world afire with its complexity or subtlety. Its bottle is in the shape of a lighter (with some mistaking it on first glance for a hip flask) and it delivers exactly what it promises. You get tobacco and to a lesser degree, booze. If you are looking for interesting progression or super-high quality components look elsewhere. That said, sometimes you just want a simplistic fragrance that delivers the goods and in Vermeil for Men you get just that. No distractions to draw attention away from the tobacco, just minor supporting booze, spice and oakmoss. I can't see many occasions to wear this (except maybe on the smoky casino floor) but when you are looking for a straight slightly sweet smoky pipe tobacco fragrance one would be hard-pressed to find a closer approximation. The bottom line is the relatively inexpensive under $20 a 100ml bottle Vermeil for Men is linear, simplistic and sometimes even synthetic smelling, but it gets the primary tobacco note down just right and has performance metrics that can compete with the best of them earning a "very good" 3.5 stars out of 5 rating. Now that I have a bottle of Vermeil for Men in hand, Las Vegas here I come!

Pros: Outstanding Performance metrics; very authentic pipe tobacco smell and super-inexpensive.
Cons: Smells synthetic at times; quite linear and simplistic.
