Try Dunhill Edition
Anyone know a good frag for this ? Something that smells blatantly like cigarette smoke ?
Ive tried Tobacco Vanilla from Tom Ford but thats too sweet, I want something stale and bitter just like a Dunhill cigarette..
Any suggestions ?

At least partially, Drakkar Noir and Tabac Original always smelled like this to my nose.
Can I ask why you want that?
I know when I smoked cigarettes people always complained how horrible I smelled?
This is not a criticism, i am just curious why?
the interesting thing is i had no idea there were perfumes that even made you smell like that.

The closest thing I've smelled to a cigarette vibe is ELDO's Jasmin et Cigarette. You have to deal with the strong jasmine opening before the cigarette hits, but when it happens, I got a total ashtray scent out of it. A lot of the other scents posted I just got a tobacco vibe from, but this gave me a total ashtray/stale smoke feel.
Denec, I've always found the smell comforting, and somewhat attractive..
Ill check out ELDO's.. not a fan of the jasmine but ill see if i can find a sample somewhere
il Profumo G11
cigarettes in a very Jean-Paul Belmondo, circa 1960, kinda way
I've always found that Ultraviolet for men has this very smokey, bitter vibe in its sillage. (The fragrance itself though, on the whole, is not smokey, but it's sillage has this weird vibe, like you smoked a cigarette an hour ago).
Other than that, Feuilles de Tabac by Miller Harris smells like a very smokey tabacco, almost like you just smoked a few cigarettes. That would be my biggest rec.

Bulgari Pour Homme and Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme both give off that kind of vibe without using tobacco. Platinum Egoiste does too, come to think of it, although it's soapy fresh and metallic at the same time.
Indie Guy, you just reminded me that Silver Musk (which smells like it was based on Bulgari PH) also has a cigarette ash note, that somehow doesn't smell like tobacco at all.

Back to Black by Killian will do the trick
Eau de Lucky Strike or Parfum de Newport? ; )
Also, I totally agree about Platinum Egoiste.
Hey flyinglotus, could you just smoke a Dunhill cigarette? Or do you not smoke and just like the smell?

I Profumo de Firenze's Tabacco is very pungent. I'd say the ELDO but if you don't really like jasmine you'll hate it.
Very Valentino, in the silver box. Bitter cigarette.

Tabac, Cardinal, Brookes Brothers, Musc Kublai Khan, Andron
As far as the smell of a just-extinguished cig, I'll have to go with ELDO's Jasmin et Cigarette.
Molinard Habanita and Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque are ciggy-o-rama. I stopped wearing them- my kids would say "ew you smell like smoke" when I would hug them

umm.. You could just smoke a cigarette.
I have yet to try Jasmin et Cigarette but it sounds like what you want. If you are on a strict budget, however, go with Mustang (green bottle that looks like Polo) by Dorall.

I tried a Nobile 1942 scent but I am afraid I am not sure which one it was. Either Pontevecchio or Acqua Nobile. It smelled like a faint cigarette smoke on clean clothes.
