    Arrow Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    I've just tried this from a sample vial and I think at this moment I would like to have some of this juice. This fragrance has been so appropriately named, its unbelievable. All I get out of this is a linear smell of vanilla and tobacco. The combination is nothing spectacular yet its compelling.

    Where exactly can one buy this from? I see all the splits happening here have been consummated. Any splits in the offing? Any information would be appreciated.

    I love it, much better then SDV IMO as far as vanilla goes and just worked so much better on my skin. It lasted at least 24 hours before I took a shower might have lasted more too.

    This is going to be my next purchase this year whether it be a decant or FB

    Check out tomford.com for retailers that stock Tom Ford Beauty products.

    Tobacco Vanille is fantastic, I agree. I regret, I don't really get to wear it from my decant as much as I would like, since TV can wear heavily in warm weather which is common here in Miami. But as soon as it cools down, I reach for it. It, and Spiritueuse Double Vanille are vanilla standards, IMO.

    Tobaco Vanille has some flaws - too sweet drydown. Despite this - it's amazing scent.

    I love it, though at the prices it goes for it always seems to take a backseat to other fragrances. I'm not sure about splits, but it's available at Nordstroms online and select Saks and Neimans in-store.

    TV is just about a perfect balance of the two main components. Neither dominates. I like it a lot. Quite expensive though.

    As far as I know they stock it in Harrods, Harvey Nicholls and Selfridges. I might go up to London to give this a try,

    An great fragrance. I tried it and it immediately went in my top five. I do not usually like vanilla, but in here it is not too sweet and tempered just right with cinnamon. It smells just like vanilla pipe tobacco. If you can find it, it is most certanly worth your time.

    It's a real cold winter in Lithuania with much snow. I sprayed Tobacco Vanille and it's hard to compare the pleasure of wearing this scent with any other.

    At fist I thought, "Why would I pay that much for a vanilla scent?", but after smelling SDV, I think I need to try this one.

    I ordered it the other day from NM, and called the Tom Ford Store in NY for samples of the TV and a couple others. As I mentioned in another thread, the people I dealt with at Tom Ford could not have been more helpful and great to deal with.

    I am looking forward to receiving it...although after reading all the comments my expectations may be a bit too high now.

    I will report back.

    This is a very opulent scent, rich and full bodied. I can't stress enough how fantastically it wears in cooler weather.

    So what exactly is the main difference in vanilla/tobacco theme between Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille and Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille?

    I thought the same myself. Why would anyone want to pay so much for a vanilla scent? Then when I sniffed Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, I found it compelling enough to get it despite its high price.

    I haven't sniffed SDV but now I am curious about that too. I don't want to again say 'Its just vanilla'....meh

    TV: Very linear. Tobacco is VERY prominent and it's VERY sweet. Sillage and longevity are high.

    SDV: Much more complex, from a boozy kind of macerated vanilla note to a more gentle spice soaked Guerlainade base. Tobacco is lighter touch and it is less sweet. SDV smells different smelled up close than it does far away (a trait common among Guerlain's). Sillage is average and longevity is above average.

    Of course, this is a very quick generalization of the differences. Both are wonderful and I'm glad I own decants of both.

    Do not overspray TV! Literally, one spray will do you for a good part of the day. Very linear and I can't take too much without layering. Layers well with Tuscan Leather.

    I'm seriously considering this a must buy for me. Come tax refund time, i'll probably pick up the 1.7 oz spray. Heck, if I get a stimulus check, I may just spring for the 8.3 oz, but I seriously doubt it.

    I just got a 5ml decant of TV from eBay. God I love this stuff. I'm wearing it now and basking in its sweetness. I also got a great demo of the Tom Ford Private Collection Coffret at the Neiman Marcus in Troy MI. This is on my dream list. Got a great sample of Moss Breches from this visit as well. Champaca and Tuscan Leather are also very wonderful. Thank you very much to the awesome and generous SA's at NM.

    JickyMan,

    I actually called that store and the sales associate had NO IDEA what I was talking about. He acted as if I was crazy and really wanted Black Orchid! Too funny!

    TV is perhaps the best of the bunch from Ford. Reminds me a lot of the Dreamer (think honey & tobacco leaves). I'm almost convinced that TV is a copy of Dreamer with better ingrediants. The openings are of course different but the drydowns are very similar with TV being slightly sweeter.

    I've got a few technical questions about this. How is longevity and sillage? I know somebody described it as "high," but can anyone provide more details? If I buy something like this I want to get a ton of wearings out of it.

    Both are incredible high IMO

    Longevity is 24 hours ++ probably longer if i did not take a shower
