    Default Scents with good Tobacco or Smoke notes

    Hey guys, I'm asking for everyones opinion/suggestion for their favorite scent with smokey or tobacco-y notes. No preferences here, my taste in fragrance is pretty eclectic. I just want to find something good for my next buy. Descriptions of your scent suggestions would be much appreciated.

    thanks guys!

    Creed Vintage Taberome (spelling) is pretty tabbaco-ie, Fumerie Turque is cherry pipe tabbaco and smoke, Hinoki smells like the inside of a humidor to me.

    Some might say Versace Dreamer, but I don't really get tabbaco from it.

    If you use the search you can find some wonderful threads about tabbaco

    Still trying to wrap my brain and nose around Black tourmaline. CDG Avignon I've sampled as well. Good frankincense note. I like it alot, I'm catholic so it reminds me of going to mass. I do like its ability to conjure up scent memory for me, it's a very well done scent IMO, but I don't know how wearable it is. It's a very ponderous contemplative scent. I may get it in the future, right now I'm happy with my decant. I'm looking for something more alluring and wearable in the social night time setting. Thanks though!

    I called the nice people at Cambridge Chemists. They sent me a sample of Cuba at no charge.

    Just sampled a couple of Tom Ford's private blend collection, and Bois Rouge is very smokey, with spiced notes although it's longevity is weak, and Tobacco Vanille is of course full of rich tobacco goodness! For a more available buy, I like L'Artisan's Tea for Two - which is slightly smokey.

    Ooops! Almost forgot to add Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille - nice boozy/tobaccoey-vanilla!

    Cool, I've never sampled those two Tom Ford scents before. I have sampled Tea for Two, not my cup of tea (teehee). The Guerlain i will have to find out about. Thanks for the suggestions, i'll add it to the list.

    There are already great suggestions on this thread, but I think Miller Harris's Feuilles de Tabac has to be given a sniff. It's the smell of slightly moist huge tobacco leaves drying in a shady tobacco barn to me. With bright sunshine outside. It almost makes my mouth pucker the same way tart lemons do. (No lemons to the smell, but tobacco makes my mouth water and almost pucker.)
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    The aforementioned "The Dreamer" is rather famous for its' tobacco notes. I also find Andy Tauer's L' air du desert marocain to have a smokey quality as does his Lonestar Memories.

    Fumerie Turque (again)
    Black Tourmaline (smoky incense, not tobacco)
    Or Black
    Havana (again)
    Dzongkha (smoky incnese)
    Lonestar Memories (barbecue smoke)
    Burning Leaves (what it says on the label)
    Idole de Lubin (weird smoke)

    +1 on TF Tobacco Vanille. Got a decant coming my way.
    Another suggestion is the Tobacco from Odori. While TF TV smells like sweet pipe tobacco, this one smells like freshly rolled cigars. Ones with moist tobacco wrapped together.

    I can see that description and you can word it better than I ever could

    The only frag with a clearly defined tobacco note that I'm using now is Ava Luxe's Kretek.

    Very Valentino - in the silver box. I had once a bottle and it's a non-sweet tobacco scent, as far as I can remember with some smoke.

    I'm assuming that you want suggestions of fragrances with either tobacco OR smokey notes, but not particular in the same fragrance. Is that true?

    As far as tobacco, look no further than Aramis Havana. The mother of all cigar tobacco fragrances. Discontinued, but available online, at a price. But worth it. Has been described as the smell of pre Castro Cuba, with all the decadence intact.

    CdG Man 2 is a great smokey fragrance! Smells like a campfire. Great depth and complexity.

    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

    Try the classic CH for men for real tobacco fragrance.
    D&G PH if you want lighter.

    Another vote for these two

    Serge Lutens - Fumerie Turque
    Tom Ford - Tobbaco Vanille

    I am actually testing Fumerie Turque today for the first time and I must say this is wonderful. The longevity of Tobacco Vanille is out of this world. At least 18 hours on me.
    I've had people compliment me on it like 15 hours after I put it on.

    I'm on a big Nicolai Pour Homme Personal Fragrance Journey at present and so possibly this should be taken with a grain of salt but my anwer would be, uuuumm, Nicolai Pour Homme. Beautifully blended tobacco/incense accord in the drydown. So by no means a tobacco solaflore but a wonderful tobacco accord, and I've been smelling a lot of tobacco frags lately.

    I'm right on board with Fumerie Turque and Feuilles de Tabac.. both really great but be slight at hand with the Miller Harris - it's BIG! Cuba by C/S is also really great and has a few minutes of dirty musk there in the first few minutes.. and great bottle!
    I'd add:
    Something bizarre and unique:
    Le Labo Patchouli 24 for the huge campfire smoke opening (as long as you like patchouli of course)
    Or for something more mainstream and easily available:
    Gucci pour Homme for the smokey character
    More Affordable Niche:
    Comme des Garcons 2 Man for the white smoke and incense
    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    D&G PH is what got me interested in the tobacco note in the first place! I'll have to check out your other suggestions, thanks!
