    Default Any fairly easy-to-find, designer feminine frags with a clear tobacco note?

    I just did a swap for IsaBella (Rosellini), which has a clear tobacco note. In fact, the drydown smells a lot like the opening of Dior Homme. Doing a BN directory search for feminine frags of recent years, I didn't notice any recent frags that have tobacco note (and of course even if it's listed that doesn't mean one will actually smell it). Is IsaBella as unique as it appears to be? Thanks.

    Bulgari BLV Notte Pour Femme
    Paloma Picasso

    Oh, recent. Never mind. Sorry.
    There is a singular joy in the experience of receiving perfume by mail. It is one of life's great little pleasures - one that more should have the pleasure of knowing.

    Tonka Imperial by Guerlain is suppose to have a tobacco note.

    It comes to my mind the fruity tobbaco of Hot Couture. They say that the vintage version has more tobacco, so if you find a old bottle it may be even better then the newer one...

    Well, if I can be flexible with your definitions .... These aren't strictly designers, but I'd argue they are relatively easy to find - depending on where you live.


    Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford (he is a designer, and most regard the private blends as 'unisex')

    Havana Vanille by L'Artisan Parfumeur (probably regarded as unisex)

    Jasmin & Cigarette by Etat Libre d'Orange (from their feminine line)

    As others have said, Miss Balmain and Cabochard, plus Illuminum Piper Leather, which is unisex but eminently wearable for women.

    It's expensive on their own website, but you can pick it up for a lot less on ebay, and all of the ones I've seen so far are genuine.

    Volutes by Diptyque, 2012. Not necessarily designer but sold at Nordstroms.

    Yup, Volutes is a good one - EDT edges out the EDP for me.

    Definitely. Far more so in the vintage stuff.

    I would +1 with Volutes and Habanita. The EDP and EDT are different.

    Caron Aimez-Moi (pre-2013) has a violet/tobacco note.

    I think Gucci Premiere has leather in it, but I don't know if it has tobacco.

    I would also HIGHLY recommend Costamor Tabacca for a wonderful tobacco note.

    Have you tried Joop! Le Bain?

    Although this is a classic fragrance, there is nothing dated about it.

    Niche, not designer, but easily bought online:

    Olympic Orchids Carolina - honeysuckle, hay and tobacco flower

    Demeter This is not a Pipe - sweet/spicy pure tobacco scent with a little wood, great for layering with other perfumes to add a tobacco scent (I suggest the oil rollerball).

    Designer:

    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille - lovely warm and sweet vanilla tobacco.

    The OP was looking for responses to this question more than three years ago -- hopefully he's found something by now
