    Default Recently got Guerlain's Vetiver and Creed's Tabarome Millesime

    and there seems to be a note (maybe tobacco?) that makes them feel related. Anybody else know what this might be? I think it's what I like about both of them, so I might try to look for others that have this note, as well.

    Yes, probably tobacco.

    Many like Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme for a tobacco scent.
    I think the two you have are much better, though.
    Also, consider sampling Vintage Tabarome (from Creed's Private Collection).
    If you like it, buy a decant from someone. It's strong and a little goes a
    long way. Very nice, and unapologetically old school.

    If you are a fan of tobacco as a fragrance note, you really must try Aramis Havana. Classy, beautiful blend of the aforementioned note with bay rhum and other spices. It goes on a little chaotic in the beginning but the drydown is one of the world's best. (IMHO). Montana Original is another tobacco scent worthy of mention. It is somewhat similar to Havana, but lighter and it sparkles with hints of fruit (if I remember correctly).

    As mentioned previously by a basenoter, D&G PH is a very nice tobacco fragrance as well and is notorious for it's monster sillage and quite inexpensive.

    good luck,

    a.

    Tobacco lovers - try Burning Leaves by CB I Hate Perfume, I think you'll like!

    What about Burberry London?

    Tobacco, port wine, leather and spices. The wine and tobacco seem to be the dominant notes.

    P.S. Guerlain Vetiver and Creed tabarome Millesime are 2 of my favorites!

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Is it the tobacco note in Guerlain Vetiver that a few of us smell as soap?

    To, me, no. i can smell a sense of soapiness sometimes, but the tobacco smell is deeper and seems to come on after about 30 minutes to an hour.

    I dont get any soapiness out of either New Tabarome or Guerlain Vetiver - there is a bit of soapiness in Vintage Tabarome. I get more ginger than tobacco out of New Tabarome, and prefer Vintage Tabarome and Guerlain Vetiver to it.

    GV strong soapy for me...I'm just trying to learn what ingredient is triggering that in me. It's similar to Irish Spring soap bubble in the nostril strong, and does not diminish in the drydown. Oh, well.....no worries.

    Wow, way late on this thread but I just got my sample of Vintage Tabarome last week and a full bottle today. LOVE it, but agree with the soapy note mentioned so often. (Only in that one aspect it reminds me of Aramis 900). The ingredient that is triggering that is an old fashioned synthetic "barber shop" musk. It forms the sturdy base that carries all of the other accords. Musks, particularly macrocyclic synthetics, "carry" other molecules with them so the end result is that the musk itself is imperceptible unless you know what you're looking for.

    The surprising aspect for me is that no one mentions the sturdy dose of oakmoss in the VT. This fragrance to my nose is more of a showpiece for oakmoss than anything else. That's also what makes it a bit stodgy, in my opinion. Mouldy library stodgy. Overall, VT is a wonderfully uncomplicated scent if you deconstruct it. Musk, tobacco, leather, oakmoss and what they are claiming is white pepper and ginger comes across to me as a pimiento note. I don't think they had synthetic pimineto in the 1800s when this was formulated, so this one stumps me a bit.
