    For me, Tobacco Vanille smells rich, but I really don't get tobacco out of it. I get more of a honey note.

    That being said, in my opinion the best Private Blends are (in no order):

    Amber Absolute
    Azure Lime (doesn't get good feedback around here but I like it)
    Italian Cypress
    Neroli Portofino
    Tuscan Leather
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    One that I don't feel is given enough recognition here on Basenotes, Bois Marocain. Woody, incensey and deeply evocative of my visits to Morocco. Very sophisticated, and the only scent that has ever blown me off my feet. Bois Marocain introduced me to the real world of fragrances.
    Top 10:
    1. Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta
    2. YSL M7
    3. Tom Ford Bois Marocain
    4. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    5. Dior Homme/Intense
    6. YSL Opium
    7. Azzaro Pour Homme
    8. Frederic Malle's Musc Ravageur
    9. YSL Live Jazz
    10. Burberry London

    Try layering them - makes a brilliant combination.

    Default Re: What is the best Tom ford private blend

    My favorites are Moss Breches and Amber Absolute, but I've enjoyed Tobacco Vanille, Noir de Noir, and Japon Noir to some degree at various points. Urban Musk was nice, but it's just Bulgari Black Light, for far more money. Velvet Gardenia is the only fragrance I've ever wished for a ''light'' version of when it comes to florals, but it was... different, I'll give it that. I'm not surprised it kicked the bucket.

    The rest were largely forgettable for me, though the first set of releases were agreeably dark compared to much of what was being released.

    Italian Cypress is awesome. Tuscan Leather is a little strange.

    TV's tobacco note is more prominent -- but it's smooth and really well blended with the vanilla note. BtB's tobacco note gets overpowered by its honey note in the middle stage, on my skin, which I'm not a fan of.

    The only one I haven't tried is Bois Marocain. I really enjoyed Italian Cypress, Amber Absolute, Noir de Noir and would buy bottles at the right price. However, my two favorites are the two that I currently own- Moss Breeches and Tobacco Vanille. If I was pushed to pick one, it would be TV.

    Tuscan Leather and Japon Noir were the only two that I didn't enjoy.

    That's good to hear thanks. I wish the tobacco note in BtB was a bit more butch. Hoping TV will be the one!

    Default Re: What is the best Tom ford private blend

    Just my two cents, but for butch tobacco neither Tobacco Vanille nor Back To Black are good choices; it's just a difference between tobacco with syrup and tobacoo with powder, respectively.

    I'd suggest something like Sonoma Scent Studio's Tabac Aurea - it's wonderfully non-sweet, and considerably more ''butch'' in style than these two. If you'd like tobacco and leather, check out Pascal Morababito's Or Black. If you like cloves, there's always Aramis Havana, and if you really, really like cloves, Ava Luxe's Kretek.

    I love them all except Tuscan Leather; to dry and single note for my liking.

    Default Re: What is the best Tom ford private blend

    Noir de Noir and Amber Absolute are my favorites. I recently purchased Noir de Noir because I liked it so much.

    Tobacco Vanille is very overrated in my opinion. I want tobacco, not syrupy sweet vanilla. Tuscan Leather is also great, but I'm not sure I will ever get around to purchasing it. Oud Wood is nice, but I would rather get my oud fix from other houses that specialize in it. As for Neroli Portofino and Azure Lime, I don't see myself ever spending that much money on a citrus fragrance. There are several others in the Private Blends that I have tried, but I need to test more. I discussed the ones I have a pretty strong opinion on.

    I have a bottle of TL, decants of Noir de Noir and Oud Wood. I really like Tobacco Vanille. Italian Cypress is wirth testing.

    I like to layer TL and TV over Oud Wood.
    Five that I am enjoying right now

    1) Sel de Vetiver by The Different Company
    2) Spiritueuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    3) Bois des Iles by Chanel
    4) Devin by Aramis
    5) Coromandel by Chanel
