    Default Back room scent?

    I recently read a review of Serge Lutens' Rahat Loukoum that described the scent as transforming into "a smoky, tobacco melange that reminds me of the best tack rooms. Expensive leather rubbed, oiled and stored where men have stood smoking cigars or pipes and discussing the affairs of the day." (Thank you onanendlessquest)

    Not only did this scent just shoot to the top of my "must-smell list", but it inspired me to ask the question: What other fragrances evoke images of such back rooms--ones that are filled with the best of tobacco is being smoked, books, skins, and leather?

    Bogart Pour Homme, Creed's Vintage Tabarome, Burberry London, Montana PH are just a few that evoke this imagery for me.

    Correction: I just realized that the review spoke of "tack" rooms, whereas I wrote "back" rooms. However, I still prefer scents evoking the latter, but will take suggestions for either.

    Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford - one of jock_with_scents favorite's and mine too.

    I hope to own a bottle soon, but don't yet due to it's very expensive price. Right now it can only be bought at Tom Ford's store (in NY) or at Bergdorf Goodman. Or a decant at The Perfumed Court.

    Ah...back room smells. I'd say Bandit Pour Homme (although I'd never wear it)...Black Orchid sort of has that smell to me...Antaeus...Rose Poivree has a bit of that smell, among other things.

    ps - what's a "tack" room?
