    Default Inexpensive tobacco/vanilla frags?

    Tom Ford charges to damn much for his magic smelly stuff. I'm looking for a suitable alternative. Good longevity wouldn't hurt.

    Thats still a bit pricey. Sub-$50 if possible.

    I'm a Habit Rouge guy. I really can find no tobacco in that bad boy. Its my go to vanilla frag, but since the EDC is vanishing, i'm shying away from it lately.

    How about a leather fragrance, perhaps Cuiron pour Homme or Knize Ten?

    Laguna

    Fits all your criteria and adds a slightly tropical flavor.

    Shalimar parfum has a tobacco quality, although I am sure it comes from the vanilla. Regardless, it is not cheap.

    What about layering Polo with something like Pi.

    Sorry, I do not think that would smell good at all.

    I think, in my opinion, the Burberry London suggestion is great. I love it, it makes me feel good and smells great.

    Or just get one of those teeny weeny bottles. They'll cost more per ml. than the FB, but you'll get what you want.

    I agree with Vibert, Habanita might be the best deal in town for those two notes. A creamy classic.
    An inexpensive vanilla is usually a recipe for disaster, same with tobacco.

    Vintage Tobacco Vanille by Voluspa. It's a room spray, that can also be worn as a body spray.
