    Question Pipe tobacco frag? (Not Tobacco Vanille!)

    Hi all, wondering if you had any ideas about finding a pipe tobacco fragrance. My BF carries around pipe tobacco in his jacket and it smells wonderful. I'd like him to smell of it without the jacket on! It's Black Cavendish tobacco, a rich, slightly vanilla-y blend. I know Tobacco Vanille would be the obvious choice, but a) it's overpriced, and b) I find Tom Ford kind of annoying. It would be nice if there was a little smoke in it as well, like the smell of a pipe. Anyone tried the Demeters? (Pipe Tobacco, Whiskey Tobacco, and This Is Not a Pipe.)

    It seems like a lot of things have tobacco in the list of notes but aren't very tobacco-ish, I guess because smoking is so unacceptable these days!

    Hmmm. CB I Hate Perfume's website has GreenBriar 1968, which is described as including a pipe tobacco note, and also has a straight Pipe Tobacco accord.

    Another pricey choice is Back to Black. An absolute stunner.

    I'm enjoying MCM Success today, but it has a lot of tobacco and no vanilla.

    Tobacco Vanille is definitely worth trying, especially as you're in a city where it's available to smell.

    Very Valentino Pour Homme is an other option.

    Give Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens a shot... not a ton cheaper than Tobacco Vanille though. It has more of the smoke part you mentioned, as well as some animalic notes intertwined.

    Incidentally, I just bought TV today at the outlet mall for $50 under retail (if it's mostly cost that's prohibiting trying it)

    Tabac by Abdes Salaam Attar Profumo at ilprofumo.it

    or

    Bell'Antonio by Hilde Soliani Profumi


    problem is neither of these is much less expensive. Both are excellent tobacco scents though. Bell'Antonio is $175 at Luckyscent and Tabac can only be ordered direct from the showroom in Italy and a bottle runs around $140US.

    Nope, no such luck, unfortunately! It's the Cosmetics Company Store for Lancome at the Premium Outlets here... they have the whole line for $132. They have the roller sample set as well, the rest of the Tom Ford goodies (Black Orchid whole line, White Patchouli, etc), plus all kinds of other things. If you happen to be in Orlando and go there, there are two of the same store in the mall and only one has them (the one near Banana Republic, not the one near the parking garage).

    Bogart Pour Homme has the vanilla, but it's very strong. I suggest diluting it with vodka (if you don't have perfumer's alcohol around). That is probably the closest to what you asked for that I've tried. However, I think Michael for Men is a much better fragrance, though you won't get the vanilla.

    For pure pipe tobacco, I would highly recommend CB I Hate Perfume's Smoky Tobacco which is now available in a water perfume. (I believe this is the second scent that Crayfish refers to above). One of the best tobacco scents period, and better longevity than many of this line.

    CB also makes a Rich Tobacco accord which seems to me to have a bit of chocolate in the mix.

    Easy, Bogart PH, cherry pipe tobacco at it's best.

    Make that three. Demeter has the pipe tobacco fragrance, which has already been mentioned (I have their room spray and find it to be pretty good).

    Might also want to try Sonoma Valley Scent Studio to see if they still have a rendition of Tabac Extreme, which was along the lines of cherry pipe tobacco.

    I don't think you will like Greenbriar 1968. Yes, it has a small facet of something tobacco oriented, but the scent is so much more about the smell of an old shed, I got very little of a 'pipe tobacco' vibe from that scent.

    If I were you, I would stick with the Demeter suggestions from above.

    One more thing: The only time I have EVER had anyone think that I was smoking a pipe, when they got a whiff of my SOTD, was when I was wearing Spiriteuse Double Vanille. I think for the wearer, personally, I get a very gourmand, vanilla aura from SDV, but the sillage sure does smell like pipe tobacco to others. Of course, this is NOT a cheap or easy-to-source option. Still, I felt like I need to at least mention it.

    I'd definitely go for Fumerie Turque from Serge Lutens as has been mentioned. If your man shows some keen interest in your perfume samplings, have a go at Serge Lutens' Chergui. It's quite lovely, has a sweet smoky tobacco heart that lasts for hours.

    I completely agree. I've been playing with it eversince a kind BNer sent me a sample -- and a stunner it is. This is the first Killian scent to impress me and probably worth the steep asking price (for me).

    Agreed, again.

    I also think that dabbing, instead of spraying SdV, accentuates the tobbaco like aura to all new levels. It also has a reverse effect then, I get strong whiffs of rum soaked vanilla tempered tobacco when I smell it up close, and the sillage from a distance is devoid of any major impact of tobacco.

    I speak from experience as I _always_ prefer to dab my SdV, rather than spray.

    I remember it smelling bitter and woody - no tobacco or vanilla to my nose.

    How is the longevity on the Demeter? I am always worried when it comes to his scents.
