    Question Tobacco scent with best sillage and longevity?

    As I am testing tobacco scents now, I would like to know which tobacco scents have the best sillage and longevity--more "bang for the buck," as Americans say. I prefer tobacco florals/gourmands.

    By Kilian's Back to Black is divine (and oh, so dear...) and I hope to try the Sonoma Scent Studio Tabac Aurea, as it came so heavily recommended. I have already tried the new Costamor Tabacca, and found it nice but very, very sweet. (When I go to Paris, I will have to buy some Tabac Blonde at the Caron Boutique, but not before having my pals take me to ELdO boutique in the Marais...)

    Can you help me with my sampling, gentlemen? (I am getting faint at the thought of the urns at Caron...where did I put my smelling salts...)

    It's not niche, but I really like Havana.

    Thank you for the suggestions. This is easy to find at department stores...and more wallet-friendly.

    Marc Anthony, thank you for the post. I did try the Tobacco Vanille and did not take to it. Perhaps a second shot. (I am also on a budget.)

    I found this in the BN archives on Havana:

    According to Aramis, Havana is "Charismatic, Well-Blended, Smooth, Sensual, Electric, Sexy, Masculine, Warm, Vibrant, Pulsating, Virile, Seductive, Hypnotic and Intoxicating" ROTFL!

    Tobacco Vanille is the most powerful of all I've tried, but Ambre Narguile was extremely tenacious too. Back To Black is only a little milder than those two.

    On the designer front, Success is a complete longevity monster, up there with the first two I tried, but quite different in style. It's odd comparing it with Back To Black as both have a lot of honey and a lot of tobacco, but are nothing alike at all. It's a male chypre with shoulder-pads, and while very good is also kind of crude somehow. It's something that hits the spot perfectly when I want what it does, but that's not often. If it had a distant cousin in the niche world, it would be Ambre Russe.

    Primrose, be sure to try Feuilles de Tabac by Miller Harris, it's unisex too!

    My personal favourite is still Back to Black though, but I believe FdT does fill a void that no other fragrance can...

    Among those I like, Michael for Men and Mustang by Dorall last the longest. They are quite different however, in terms of their non-tobacco notes. They also have very good if not excellent sillage.

    I really wish this one lasted on me. It seems so great for the first half-hour then poof! It's gone.

    Fairly unknown seems to be


    Tabac
    by Profumo, Italy

    or AbdesSalaam Attar Profumo
    as listed in BN directory.


    There are only five reviews in the BN review section, four of which were written after Luca Turin had published the following in Perfumes The Guide: "...Durham is home to half a dozen tobacco companies , including Lucky Strike. On some days, the downtown streets smelled so wonderfully of tobacco that the whole place felt like it had been carved out of a giant gingerbread. Tabac approximates that beautifully, without being sweet or overhoneyed. A deliciously comfortable masculine." [L.Turin on Tabac****, 2008]

    I've tried all that have been mentioned so far, except for Profumo's Tabac.

    Primrose, for sillage and longevity:

    Vintage Tabarome and Sonoma Scent Studio Tabac Aurea

    Havana Reserva is a not too distant third. And a 5 star scent which I love.

    Happy Trails,

    What he said. This is a big bold tobacco fragrance. Not for the timid that's for sure. Lasts forever. Not allot going on here other than tobacco. Well worth sampling.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    Wouldn't John Varvatos Vintage be considered a tobacco gourmand? I would recommend you test it as it may be exactly what you're looking for. Its readily accessible at your local department store.

    IMO Creed Tabarome Millesime has great sillage/Longevity. 3 sprays last all day.

    La Via del Profumo has yet another "tobacco" by the name of Chillum which features tobacco and sandalwood (and this is mysore sandalwood). As I own a small bottle of Tabac and a large sample of Chillum, it is easy to notice a certain similarity between the two - and both are of equal quality in terms of scent and wearability IMO. So, for those looking for a good "tobacco", I'd recommend Tabac or Chillum. For those looking for a very good "sandalwood", I'd recommend Chillum.

    Tabac Original
    both Tabaromes by Creed
    Trussardi Uomo

    Vintage Tabarome - the winner in this category. I recently applied some at 5 a.m., and could still detect a whiff when I took off my shirt at midnight. Stays good throughout, no harsh or rough spots.

    I'll third this choice. Just lasts forever and smells great. Not floral or gourmand, Primrose, but give it a shot !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
