I have been into fragrances for years but still have a dificult time picking out some notes. There is a huge list of notes I just simply do not have a clue what they smell like alone. No big deal really, it is how the notes are used in a fragrance that matters and I know which finished products I like.

I adore the smell of tobacco! No better smell than opening up my humidor or walking into a walk-in himidor in a cigar shop. But I have yet to smell a tobacco scent that comes close to that delicious smell. Same with leather. I have quite a bit of leather clothing and the smell of leather is delicious, but leather fragrances never come close. What gives?
