    Default Tom Ford Italian Cypress Or Tobacco Vanille?

    Which one is better since these two items " I think" have the highest ratings

    TV.

    TV is very distinctive, strong, quasi-gourmand for grownups. It just smells delicious and sexy. Not a lot like it if anything. Maybe Back to Black in same arena.

    Italian Cypress is great too. But it smells to me a bit like a cleaned up, better executed Polo green.

    TV seems more original.

    Tobacco Vanille is more unique smelling. Lasts longer as well.

    Although im wearing and enjoying Italian Cypress right now, Tobacco Vanille is my favourite of the Private Blends.

    TV, it's great and given the high price, at least it gives you monster sillage and longevity.

    If you like tobacco leaves you will enjoy it. It's very potent but after 30 min the vanilla blends with the tobacco and your left with an extremely sophisticated scent that will get you noticed. It is much better I'n the winter months though and will cut thru the air like a knife. If you wear it I'n the summer you may choke a few people out..

    I wasn't overly keen on Italian Cypress when I sampled it whereas I was VERY enamoured with Tobacco Vanille and subsequently purchased it. No prizes for guesssing where my vote goes.

    It depends on your taste. Both are excellent and at the top of their respective genre. I have tested both and was impressed wilth both. I own niether, but that is a price issue not a scent issue.
    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

    When I sampled Italian Cypress it bore a striking resemblance to Halston Z-14.

    TV is my fovorite winter scent, but I remember liking IC lots when I tested it. They had no samples of IC so I just kinda forgot about it.

    Tobacco Vanille. This is the one fragrance out of any that when I smell it ... just sends me out of this world

    Its a masterpiece.

    I would choose Tobacco Vanille over Italian Cypress. While I like Italian Cypress, I tend to develop fragrance flashbacks of the 80's when smelling it.

    I purchased Italian Cypress first (purely because I got it at a steal of a price - £42 for 50ml).

    I have since bought a 100ml bottle of Tobacco Vanille, and I have yet to reach for the Italian Cypress in favour of Tobacco Vanille, and I can't see that changing for the foreseeable future.

    I love them both, but Tobacco Vanille is my unquestionable favourite, not only between the two, but of all time.

    TV. Had to buy a bottle earlier this week. Almost pulled the trigger on the 8.4oz behemoth then came to my senses. A little goes a real long way... the economy with size was so tempting.

    Wise move, I have a 50ml bottle that I bought a few years ago. As I only need one spray as it's strong stuff I still have 99% left. And I predict I will have that bottle for several years to come, 8.4 oz though would last in to another lifetime.lol

    I consider TV to be unwearable as well. It is mega powerful but gets on my nerves after the first 15 minutes. It is very simple and flat. I can't imagine an occasion when anyone would want to wear it.

    Well it cost £90, but I was given a £50 voucher for Amazon through work.

    Italian Cypress and Champaca Absolute were the only Private Blends they had, so having smelled both instore, went for IC.

    I have no questions authenticity, but I was as incentivised on the ability to get it at that price is what I meant.

    ah, cool, nice!!

    I got TV a few weeks ago (along with Neroli Portofino), and fell in love! I like them both so much, I ordered Italian Cypress and Oud Wood this week. IC has just this minute arrived, and WOW!! So nice. Instantly get the similarity to Polo, only I find it a lot more refined or natural smelling. And I bet (hope) it lasts a lot longer through the day. I can see this becoming a regular work and day time frag. I find TV more of a night time or going out scent. That said, I enjoy wearing it on a Friday at work, as it really puts you in the Friday feeling!!!

    Oud Wood should be arriving any minute... just hope it lives up to TV, NP & IC standards!

    Thanks for the info. I have checked them, and they doesn`t ship to my country :-(
    -I think I`ll just have to wait and see if a kind Basenoter has a bottle (T-V, T-L or O-W) for swap! ;-)

    Both are good frags but I'd take TV over IC any day. I have both and while IC is arguably more complex, TV is the one I find myself reaching for more, especially as the weather starts to cool off

    I have to ask those that use Tobacco Vanille.

    I constantly hear people saying that one spray is enough to last all day.

    How do you manage this? Maybe it's just me, I work with a 4 spray minimum - two on my chest and one on each wrist.

    I love the fragrance, and whilst I wish that the top notes hung around a little longer, the dry down is incredible.

    Am i developing olfactory fatigue too early or is there another reason that it seems to fade with anything less than 4 sprays.

    Whilst I don't appear to be choking myself and others with this usage, I often wonder whether it projects as I used to believe it did? I get complimented on the fragrance regularly, but this is usually within 2 hours of application.

    Your thoughts would be appreciated.
