    I'm VERY curious to try this one. My only problem is that I read in the reviews that you had to be in your 40's to pull this one off. However, my favorite scent(s) to this point are Havana & Havana Reserva. I just pulled the trigger on Orange Spice (my first Creed). Would love to try this one, but thought it would be a little too "mature" for me to pull off. I'm wondering if the whole "40's" thing is a little overdone. Also, pulling the trigger on the 8.4oz is a pretty big investment. So my question to you is that is it really a mature mans scent or can someone a little younger pull this one off? For the record, I just turned 34...

    I love Velvet Rope.

    Vintage Tabarome.. is one of the few scents I own (decant, of course), that I actually had two women stop me and ask me what it was.. it's been happening more lately because I have worn more of what I am wearing (more sprays). Vintage Tabarome and SMN Acqua di Cuba are my two favs in this category, but Tabarome blows SMN's away.. just my preference. Both are good, but the Creed Vintage Tabarome is austere, classy, and not smelled often.. not by me anyway. How can something so old smell so modern and be so applicable to many situations.. I love Vintage Tabarome, Private Collection. Tabarome Milliseme (the newer one) is not nearly as good to me.. I like it, but it smells like Tabac Blonde.

    I bought the signature Tommy Bahama from TJ Maxx. It has a cigar store accord that I've grown to love. I look forward to sampling many of the suggested frags from this thread.

    Hey,

    I'm a big fan of tobacco fragrances.
    By far my favorite dedicated tobacco is Miller Harris - Fuilles de Tabac. It really highlights the almost floral tone of tobacco, and tobacco flower. Its not too heavy, sharp or medicinal as tobacco fragrances tend to be. My only issue is longevity, which is good, but not great. I got mine when Luckyscent had it on huge sale. Their prose is nice, "Complex Cuban cascarilla oil and pimento berries contrast with a cooling heart of pine needles and velvet sage. Tobacco, tonka bean and Malay patchouli complete this darkly intriguing, masculine fragrance." My wife wears it at times, and it smells really nice on her.

    For many, Tabac Blond is just the pinnacle of tobacco fragrances, and many folks find that it is their holy grail of perfumes in general. Everyone should try it once if they can spring for a sample of the parfum version. There are few better experiences in the art of perfumery.

    Also a shout out for Lutens Fumerie Turque. Smoky, floral, honey, amber....I'm not sure why I don't think of it as a tobacco fragrance. There is just so much going on there. In my top 5 for winter. I wont go on about it as there has been tons written about it already.


    And Michael Kors is just excellent, especially for the price.


    Enjoy.

    You should also try the new Aigner - |man|. It smells awesome, imho. Unfortunately it doesn't last too long on me.

    I just bought Tabaco Latino from Perfumania yesterday. Good price too! This dries down and completely smells like the pipe tabacco that my Grandfather used to smoke. I had to get it. They also have a Vetiver Bourbon--by Nature's Elelments.
