Reviews of Tobacco Oud

Tobacco Oud is a bourbon sweet tobacco. Often when tobacco is a note in a fragrance it smells nothing like it, this does. It is a pipe tobacco. Broad strokes, it just smells like a dude smoking a pipe. Up close, and broken down: its got a boozy bourbon accord. Some say whiskey, but I don't see this as a dry bitter, it is sweetened like a bourbon. The oud here is just a background shrill pierce that raises the octave by about half a notch. The longevity is good, and projection is large. There are no performance issues here, unless too big is a problem. This is not a subtle fragrance. I don't know if it is because the stated notes are so huge and overshadowing, but I don't find sense many of the parts in the pyramid at all. This seems somewhat uncomplicated. It is a really good smelling tobacco, it feels well done. I could overthink this and try comparing it to other things and price levels and all that. Long story short I think it is a good smelling fragrance and performs well. Thumbs up.

I get neither tobacco nor oud from this fragrance... what I do get is a dry smoky spiced amber. It’s a very linear scent without much transition, and opens with deep roasted spices with an almost animalic bent, lying over a bone dry and smoky (perhaps labdanum) amber. The spices soon simmer down and it blends more smoothly with the smoky base.

I believe that rather than another oud fragrance, Tom Ford has created a more complex successor to the late Amber Absolute.

To describe it best, Tobacco Oud is the product of a night of debauchery between Francis Kurkdjian’s Absolue Pour Le Soir and Tom Ford’s Amber Absolute. With the spices of the former and sweetness of the latter dialled down, making a more interesting and wearable love child than either of the two. Perhaps it could also be seen as a smoother and less complex nephew of Serge Luten’s Fumerie Turque.

I really enjoy this fragrance, but my only reservation is that it seems like one big basenote. It needs a highlight as a counterpoint to its richness and depth. I want it to have a touch more sweetness, or a sliver of lemony incense, or a spritz more of booze. Just something to take it to the next level... but that’s why there’s Fumerie Turque.

After Oud "Air" Wood, Tobacco "girly" Vanilla, Tom Ford "Pimpy" for Men, Noir "Oldy", Noir "sweety" extreme, Tuscan "Shitty Rasperry" Leather, I finally found something I'm interested in from Tom Ford...

TOBACCO OUD: a masculine dry pipe tobacco and spices, with a boozy/oudy support. The tobacco is unapologetic, nearly animalic in the opening, with a round woody whisky note in the background that amps up the tobacco without taking the lead.

Linear, but well blended. A lower level cousin of Lutens Fumerie Turque. Should I have to choose, I would go without hesitation for the Lutens, but still, I like this one.

I have TO on one arm and Ombre Leather on the other: tonight, it seems that Tom Ford wants me to change my mind on his house. Good job Tommy! (but still, imo, the fair price should be no more than half the current price, and projection could be be improved. TO Intense? To be continued...)

I will start by saying that Tobacco Oud is a very nice fragrance. Well blended, manly, in your face. The problem I have and the reason I will not buy a full bottle is that it doesn't really offer anything new. Smells very similar to Amber Absolute and I maybe get a whiff of both Oud Wood and TV.

Really nice but nothing new or ground breaking.

A living legend of a scent IMO, Tobacco Oud embodies an artful painting that takes both of those distinctive notes and places thoughtful flourishes of booziness (whiskey), spicy reinforcers (coriander and cinnamon), and a bevy of classic base note ingredients that come together into a smoky-warm-sweet composite (incense, sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, cedarwood).

From the first time I'd smelled this work of art years ago to now, I smell quality ingredients that were meant to convey greater than mere "Tobacco and oud"; rather, it is a progressive masterpiece that touches on most of what would comprise a stylized version of tobacco and oud. No nonsense, delivering what you'd expect and more!

Walking the line...

So, with Tobacco Oud by Tom Ford, I feel this fragrance really treads a line here. This is a little more than tobacco and oud, although they each present themselves in different ways. I detect a hay-like quality to the dry tobacco here which mixes with an ambery, yet medicinal oud to make something quite heady and intoxicating. This one can be heavy. I have read that the inspiration for this came from "dokha" (p.s. the word in Arabic, دوخة, literally means "dizzyness"). In other words, a very strong blend of tobacco and herbs designed to give the smoker a hit-like buzz when they inhale. In this fashion, the fragrance succeeds. It's like herbal tobacco smoke mixed with oud smoke. It's a smokey fragrance!

Again, it's up to you whether it's something you want to smell like. It is wearable of course, I would just exercise caution here and I do believe that a little would go a long way. Very intoxicating in a burnt wood and sweet tobacco kind of way. It's an interesting and intriguing one to say the least.
