    I think you should check out Le Roy Soleil by Salvador Dali. It's a very bright/metallic orange scent over a base of cedar and tobacco. Would go excellent with the smell of smoke, I imagine.

    Also, L'Anarchiste by Caron.

    Dreamer and Dolce & Gabbana.

    Always been hitting up the bars wearing Dolce, it works out smoothly with the booze and smoking, even after 5 hours being in a bar, i still get women telling me how good i smell. Same thing with Dreamer.

    Then I offer that woman that sniffed me, a bottle of whiskey and a hotel room, but that is another story.

    As a former smoker, I agree with leffleur. Rather than go for something that will attempt to overpower or mask the scent of the smoke, I think you should embrace the scent and find something that accents it or that it accents. When I was smoking quite a bit, I wore A*men a lot and found that it went quite well with the scent of the cigarette smoke. Leffleur also brought up a good point about different types of tobacco and different types of cigarettes having different smelling smoke. I'd pick something different to go with a Nat Sherman MCD than I would to go with a Marlboro Red or a Camel Turkish Royal. If you smoke menthol or vanilla or mint cigarettes, that would probably influence your fragrance choice as well. Get some samples, spray the scent, light up, and see what works for you.

    Perhaps something opposite of a cigarette ( Mugler Cologne) or something I personally feel would go well ( Gucci pour Homme or Burberry London). Then again, I love these 2 scents and would recommend them shamlessly anyways.

    Anyways to Lunz, here are my picks buddy :

    Burberry London ( hope you don't mind designer, but perhaps wait in cooler weather )

    Rive Gauche pour Homme

    Baldesserini Ambre and/or the original

    Carven Homme ( so classy, yet restrained)

    Eau de Lalique ( refreshing unisex citrus)

    Canali Black Diamond EDP ( starts off similar to Cool Water, but has a good base to it as well. Get the Parfum, not EDT)

    Good luck Lunz.
    Thanks, I already bought Canali Black Diamond EDP..a very very nice suggestion..thanks again

    Is Royal Water something that would blend well with the smell of cigarette smoke on somebody? Perhaps the sharp citrus would penetrate the stale smoke smell enough to "freshen up" the person wearing it.

    SMW certainly doesn't mix well with tobacco smoke. It totally destroys the SMW concept in my opinion.

To Lunz: you keep doing whatever it takes to make you happy, and for the love of god try Michael by Michael Kors the beauty in that relatively inexpensive fragrance will surely cover up any innocent wafts of smoke, and it only intensifies in the heat

    Generally Lunz, I think aquatic type scents don't work well with cigarette smoke (and really, I think it depend on the type and smell of the tobacco/cig), while woody, woody-gourmand, amber and leathery scents do. I generally don’t follow weather designations beyond personal preference, just apply appropriately.

    Azzaro PH would be best IMO. I also had an experience with a fragrance recently that when I sprayed it on I immediately though "this would smell good with cigarette smoke." That fragrance was Cerruti Image.

    I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I feel the need to put in my two cents about this. I am not a heavy smoker like lunz, but I do smoke an occasional cigarette.

    I personally find the smell of cigarette smoke to be attractive when mixed with the right smell. Some people don't even need to use cologne or perfume, it just smells lovely to me on their skin.

    In any case, I find it a perfectly acceptable question to ask. Lunz, as far as my opinion goes, I've always found a more spicier scent to go well with the smell of tobacco. I'm not sure how it would do under hotter temperatures, but to me, cigarette smoke mixed with a lightly-applied and spicy aftershave smell is very appealing. They mix well. I'm not familiar with male brands of cologne, so if this is something you want to try, I unfortunately have no particular names to offer.

    Good luck!

    I'm an occasionally smoker, so the other day I had a cigarette while wearing M7 - it was a magical combination. Somehow the smoke toned down the sweet ambery richness of the M7, resulting in how I wish M7 smelled on its own. Anyway, M7 is a good one for smokers if you ask me.

    You might want to try some of the classic scents, things that were created during the period ,40's - 70's, when smoking was really considered fashionable. Even many of the scents marketed for women, Bandit is a great example, are strong enough to mix nicely with a smokiness.
    But seeing that my father died from heart-failure due to smoking, I hope one day you may quit. I say this not in judgment, I say this as someone who wants others to know it is something that does cause health problems.
    Take care.

    Thanks sweety.
    I truly do not try to judge anyone.
    I know how hard it was for my dad to go even an hour without a cigarette, unfortunately I also know how hard it was for us after he was gone.
    But he was such a love; since he knew how much I hated the smoky smell, he always wore great scents to make me happy and smell more pleasant for me.

    I used to smoke, and when I decided to quit, I became addicted to perfumes. Now, I smoke an occasional cigarette and often catch myself wondering the same question. I'm from a tropical country as well and I've found Givenchy's Gentleman to go along very well with cigarettes, even though it's not a fresh fragrance. Gentleman is quite an old perfume, from a time when smoking was more common and glamourous.

    I also have an impression that Aramis, Fahrenheit (from Dior) and Tsar (from Van cleef and Arpels) would be amazing, but as I haven't personally tried them, I suggest you go to a store and sample these and see if they're what you want.

    I hope it helps!

    Welcome lunz - how about Opium for men or the male version of Infusion D'Iris Prada. Also I second Guerlain Vetiver ! Good luck anyway with your new buy from fragrancex.

    I have a heavy-smoker friend and he's got great taste. He wears Cartier's Santos a lot and somehow the combination of left-over cigarette odour and Santos smell just great on him. He said he sprays on his shirt also. lol.

    I wouldn't try to overpower the stench of tobacco smoke with fresh or citrus scents. That's not possible; it will always be there, fighting against your chosen fragrance. Better to "go with" the smoke, complement it, pull it into your frangrance and transform the smoke into just a part of something pleasurable. Quorum is an excellent suggestion, as would be an incense or heavy tobacco-leaning scent. If your surroundings allow it, even the ultra-strong Bijan for Men, applied appropriately, could do the trick. It's a good honky tonk scent, and no one will call you a sissy for wearing it. Good luck!
