    Default Tobacco Vanille - Beeswax?

    Does anyone else get a beeswax note in TV? Maybe it's from the tobacco. I know Moss Breches has "beeswax absolute" listed in the pyramid.

    I'm not sure why I get more beeswax in TV than before - maybe I'm smelling through the vanilla and noticing the other notes more?

    I noticed it several months ago here:

    http://community.basenotes.net/showt...vanilla+candle

    ... when my friends commented that I smelled like a burning vanilla candle. So it might not be beeswax, but certainly some wax.

    Beeswax is not listed in the notes listing for Tobacco Vanille. I'm guessing you're interpreting the honey soaked dryfruits and vanilla as Beeswax. IMO, ofcourse.

    Ah yes - honey is more accurate, not beeswax! Thanks Amit.

    And yes, Stereotomy - definitely a burning vanilla candle. A high quality vanilla candle - not the ones you find on sale at Walmart.

    Anthony, from what I smelled, most beeswax absolute are sweet, honey-like, and a bit 'waxy' with subtle notes of something slightly grassy and tobacco-esque. That may be where it's coming from.

    A bit off topic, but I feel that some lots of TV are minorly different from eachother? (I have used 5 different lots) My previous decant had a slight bitter balsamic tinge with less sweetness -- while my latest one is heavier on the vanilla with a more waxy texture. Might just be my imagination plus paranoia though.... Either way, they all smell great!

    I've detected the variation in lots as well - I've had two samples, three decants and a full bottle. The bottle seems to be the heaviest on the honey-like note.

    Agreed they all smell great, though it might also be my imagination and paranoia - but seems the ones heavier on vanilla also have better sillage, though the longevity is out of this world.

    For me it was one of the first notes i detected. I know that beeswax is not listed, and of course I get the vanilla, tobacco and some dried fruits, but I am still convinced it's there. The first time i smelled TV, it took me right back in time to a pre christmas workshop in the woods of Oslo when I was a kid, where you could make your own beeswax candles. The whole cabin was filled with beeswax, and some beeswax candles were burning. So when I was testing TV in the store, I tested it together with Oud Wood. Those two together made the most nostalgic experience I've ever had from a fragrance.

    I don't get any beeswax from it. There's some in Sahara Noir though...for reference.

    I dont get any beeswax our of it but http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/K...che-28984.html I get a lot of beeswax out of this. I dont think it smells like TV myself, but other people do, so for what its worth if you want to try. Im not really horny about beeswax myself I think its a little off putting, but its a nice smelling fragrance none the less, and I deff recommend checking out her stuff she has a lot of nice gourmand stuff and you cant beat the price.
