Ok, since I *never* get any compliments on my scents, I think this is worth a new topic.
I was in a café with some friends (m/f), went to the toilet where I also reapplied some Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille from an atomizer (half a spritz on my neck), and got back to the group.
When sitting down, a friend remarked:
"Wooow, what's smelling so nice? Is it this candle?" (begins sniffing candle that was burning on our table)
-- "No, it's Stereotomy!"
"Hey yeah, you smell nice, like a vanilla candle"
And darn, they're right! Tobacco Vanille actually *does* smell like a burning vanilla scented candle.
It definitely has this waxy smell of a burning candle in it, and the vanilla is surely more apparent than the tobacco, which is more subdued. But hey, this stuff definitely got some sillage!
I've noticed the same thing. I just think that this is a very well-weighted, high quality and expensive candle, if this is the similarity..
