Which one is better since these two items " I think" have the highest ratings
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.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Another one for TV.
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.

Tobacco Vanille. Honestly, I do not like Italian Cypress.
Tobacco vanille is one of the best scents out there, nuclear sillage and longevity....
Quite a conclusive outcome.
I'm glad I have a sample of TV on the way.
TV, but I love both.
I guess I'm a minority on this one - Italian Cypress. Not taking anything away from TV.
TOM FORD PRIVATE BLEND
1. ITALIAN CYPRESS
2. ARABIAN WOOD
3. NOIR DE NOIR
4. TUSCAN LEATHER
5. TOBACCO VANILLE
LOOKING FOR DECANTS OF ANY O. Durbano, ANY Hilde Soliana, BOISE VANILLE, COLOGNE POUR LE SOIR, MUSC RAVEGEUR, AND ROSE 31 TO SWAP:.:wink
Don't care for either but if I had to choose - the former.
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
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.
I post lots from my I phone so if this looks like a text message that's why ( :
I own Italian Cypress, but I think Tobacco Vanille is better...looking forward to getting a bottle as fall approaches..
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.
- Expect the unexpected
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.
Italian Cypress. Tobacco Vanille has too 'vanille' for me.
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.
Count me in with TV!
