Tobacco leaves (real tobacco leaves) with a light cedar note. Dries down to a light musk. Got quite a few compliments with this one. Great outdoor scent. Perfect for fall and winter months. I detect a slight incense note in this one also. Nice frag!

This opens with a rich tobacco leaf that has a hint of sweetness mixed in with a strong cedar wood. It does smell like the bottom of a old humidor where you can detect hints of sweet tobacco and woods. It opens a little fresh then gets warmer but is also light in the barbershop way.
Those that like Havana by Aramis would probably like this as well as it is not a million miles away from it. It's just the tobacco is done differently where in Havana it is a spicy musky tobacco, in Bright leaf the note is richer and slightly sweet with lots of cedar.
I like it and I do get the references to Cuba in the marketing. It lasts about five hours and has arm length projection.
Not my style -- a bit sweet and rich. Brown tobacco leaves -- if you like that note, check this out.
