    I'd break this down into three categories:

    Tobacco scent (ala Tabarome): Miller Harris FdT, i Profumi di Firence Tabacco, Czech & Speake Cuba

    Tobacco based (ala Dreamer): Le Dandy

    Pipe Tobacco (which I wish there were more of): Very Valentino

    Tough to say! For a straight tobacco scent, Vintage Tabarome is the standard for me.

    Some other ones I like:
    Burburry - London (pears + honey + tobacco. Yum-o!)
    Knize Ten (tends to remain spicy)
    Quorum
    D&H PH

    Guerlain Vetiver has an interesting cigarette tobacco note.
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava

    I'll add the following to all the ones already listed:

    DK Unleaded: A great tobacco/leather scent but unfortunately very fleeting on my skin!
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme: Tobacco with some fruit and wood notes....nice on me but too omnipresent 'round these parts!
    Realities: My nose picks up tobacco...but I'm sure it's gotta be nutmeg and other spices!
    Quorum: The tobacco seems a little stifled but the spices and herbal notes. A very "in-your-face" frag!

    I smoke a pipe and I must say that Michael by Michael Kors smells very much like a pouch of aromatic pipe tobacco. The the scent lasts all day. A very good choice for the money if you enjoy a strong tobacco note.

    Interesting. I mainly catch the booze (armagnac) in Le Dandy. I, too, consider this a great scent, however. I would have to agree that Vintage Tabarome represents the ultimate tobacco scent among those I've experienced. D&G PH is also pretty good. I also appreciate some tobacco in A*men, not knowing whether or not there is actually any.

    Tough question.... Both Tabaromes....Dreamer...D&G....Miracle Pour Homme....Probably my Fave would have to be Drum Roll...... Romance Silver. I LOVE the Tobacco note in this scent. Actually they list it as Tobacco Flower. This Rocks.
    Bueberry is nice also.
    Great Topic!!!!!!

    You mean the original DK Men Fuel, correct? Well, I just got some (a wee 'lil travel spray, but it's enough for now!) and I would say that (on MY skin), Fuel is more amber and almond, eventually giving way to the sandalwood and musk. The citrus and pineapple topnotes subside quickly and the amber and almond is VERY evident on me!! Those mid-notes last on me like mad and the almond reminds me of Dior's Hypnotic Poison, but Fuel ain't HALF as sweet as HP! Unleaded, on the other hand, is tobacco with suede/leather and some ctrus/herbal action up top. The two scents seem to have a similarity...I can't pin it down, though. IMO, Ms. Karan should work to re-introduce both Fuel and Unleaded, keep Be Delicious as a "sweet-fresh" scent and pitch the skinny-bottled DKNY and Energy. Her image would be well-served if the line had some scents in it that had some real stones as opposed to hopping on the "oceanic-ozpne" bandwagon that, quite frankly, is getting kinda long in the tooth! 90% of scent sales seem to be based on marketing ("...this is a hot seller, so the SA said. I'll take one!!&quot, so with the right push, she can't lose!! Just look at how many BaseNoters LOVE those two (Fuel and Unleaded) and look at how much these scents bring money-wise on E-Bay!!!

    Ahh...but what do I know, anyways? I'm just some little flea-speck on their sales chart who happens to be a fan of fragrance! We should just get a petition going!! [smiley=grin.gif] [smiley=grin.gif] [smiley=grin.gif] [smiley=grin.gif] [smiley=grin.gif] [smiley=grin.gif] [smiley=grin.gif]

    Ah I'm so grateful for this thread. I love the smell of tobacco as a base, (it's comforting in the same way as knowing you have a pack handy somewhere, even if you no longer smoke them) and the only fragrance i own that features it is Dolce and Gabbana PH. I'll have to check some of these out.
    Top Five: Oud Wood, Aventus, Kyoto, Rose 31, Tam Dao

    I also sometimes get a tobacco feel off fragrances that I'm not sure have any tobacco in it. Zino and Macassar both have this earthy, "tobaccoy" kind of vibe going on to me.

    Vintage Tabarome. It reminds me of (early 1960s) the scent of freshly shaved, barber trimmed men splashed with barbers' fragrances, shooting pool in the smoky pool room I frequented after school (Jr. High). I know of no other fragrance that's similar to it. Even the "new" tabarome is dissimilar to it.

    I occasionally layer Vintage Tabarome over Havanna (Reserva or the original): two spritzes of Havanna to one spritz of Vintage Tabarome.

    Hi all,

    I must say...today, I tried DOLCE & GABANNA ph for the first time in over two years! Man...D&G is TRULY a nice Tobacco fragrance! I USE to own a bottle but...at the time, I felt that it was too similar to BOUCHERON so...I SWAPPED my D&G! Darn it...I guess I was just NOT ready for the likes of Tobacco at that time. Shoot! Now I have to buy D&G to keep my TABAROME and ACQUA DI CUBA company!

    Regards,
    SixCats!

    I was the fortunate recipient, along with The Dreamer, Santalia and Cigar.

    Cool Re: the ultimate basenotes tobacco thread

    jlros, they did mention it but I'm glad you brought it up again; it is truly a magnificent combination.

    There are linear tobaccos like the El Cheapo Cuba Paris line, of which Cuba Red is the best of the worst.
    As well as more popular offerings, such as Romance Silver in which the tobacco overwhelms the composition.

    ------------------------------------

    Then there's Havana by Aramis and Cuba by Czech and Speke.

    Now these are truly outstanding, yet with Bay Rum and other spices in them one might not get the ' tobacco high.'
    It's there, but it shares the top billing with other actors.

    So what the hell am I getting at? That the linear ones are too abrasive and that the aforementioned masterpieces are too shy of 'pure' tobacco?

    Um . . .Well yeah, something like that. Too much, too little.

    Look gentlemen, Guerlian Vetiver has strong tobacco as well----perhaps as much as C&Z. Cuba or Aramis Havana, but no one thinks of it as a 'tobacco frag'

    Of course had Guerlian named it ' Monte Cubano' instead, we might have
    ------------------------------

    So my vote for the best tobacco goes to Creed's Vintage Tabarome


    If you haven't already, give it a whiff. Tobacco takes the center stage while the other notes strenngthen it masterfully.

    Cheers,

    Mario

    Fumerie Turque and D&G PH. VinTab is just too hard to wear and be taken seriously for my personality--too serious of a scent.
