    Default ONLY ONE: Tobacco Vanille or Pure Malt?

    Hey all,

    I have an opportunity to purchase either of the two in the title at around the same price, (60, TV 50ml has been sprayed once, PM 100ml is brand new) but I have only tested Tobacco Vanille a long time ago. As I already own Pure Havane, i would just like to know if it is worth purchasing either of the other two, how different are they from one another, and more importantly, which one?

    Thanks!

    Pure Havane could (faintly) be considered the middle ground between TV and Pure Malt. Unless you really loved how TV smelled, I'd suggest sticking with Pure Havane.

    Since you already have Pure Havane, it's better that you get TV. After all, Tobacco Vanille is better than Pure Malt.

    Tobacco Vanille is alright. Tom Ford fragrances are more for fragrance collectors/natural niche scent lovers. If your purpose is to get complements, I would not go with Tobacco Vanille. No one will stop you in a crowd to find out what you're wearing in comparison to Pure Malt. It is a love/hate fragrance. I find Pure Havane more appealing with the sweet honeyed tobacco vs TV. TV is good juice, but I feel all Tom Ford fragrances are overpriced, the juice is not worth it, but the bottles maybe :-/

    Pure Malt is not similar to Pure Havane, it is one of a kind. You will get tons of complements, and rarely find anyone that hates it. Pure Malt is great in fall/winter cold weather, while Pure Havane can work in Spring or cool summer, perfect dual. Smells amazing.

    I would go for Pure Malt hands down.

    Tobacco Vanille. You are not gonna happen to find it at that price again, while Pure Malt is priced more tha its regular cost and with a bit of patience you will find it in ebay at some point... Go for TV, if only for a mere money convenience

    For the price, i will bought 3 times Tobacco Vanille.

    For retail price (190usd Tobacco Vanille, 80usd Pure Malt) go for Pure Malt!

    Haha ok thank you, but what if money was no issue and it was based entirely on the quality of the scents and how much they differ from Pure Havane. Would that change anyone's opinion?

    I prefer TV especially for the T.

    TV and PM are quite different. You can read the reviews here on BN for more info.

    Maybe not the best way to get my foot in the door for a first post, but none the less...

    That being said, is Ebay the only place left to score Pure Malt? I live in Japan, and finding fragrances can be QUITE a bit more difficult than in the Americas or Europe it seems. I've never ordered one online, and was just wondering if Ebay was the best option for Pure Malt?

    I didn't like either one. I didn't hate them either, but neither, in my opinion, is worth the hype. Pure Havane, on the other hand: solid! If it were me, I would just stick with the Havane. Have you tried L'Artisan's Havana Vanille btw? By Kilian's Back to Black? I think they both do vanilla in better and considerably different ways than TV.

    You probably tried Back to Black, which has a dominant honey note. I get mostly dry tobacco and vanilla in Tobacco Vanille.

    Depending on your budget T V is much much better

    As much as these two are hyped up, I'm wondering if samples don't smell as good as straight from the bottle. I'd rather have Double Vanille or even A Men on me than either of these, but I think TV was a bit better from what I remember.

    Tobacco Vanille by a country mile - it's by far the better of the two IMHO.

    Tobacco Vanille. Mugler fans swear PM and PH are very different, but to my nose, they're very similar scents. I find pure Malt to be a nice scent, but it's not in the same league as TV.

  26. #26

    Default Re: ONLY ONE: Tobacco Vanille or Pure Malt?

    I would go for Pure malt because it's harder to get hold of. You will always find a store selling TV whereas PM is rare. I also think PM is more versatile than TV

    I think both are a bit overrated. While I like PM, I would go with TV b/c it's a bit more versatile.

    Both are great, but I would choose Tobacco Vanille, in colder weather this gets me lots of compliments. By far the best scent from Tom Ford...

    Default Re: ONLY ONE: Tobacco Vanille or Pure Malt?

    To my quick count I'd say that is:

    TV +19

    PM +3

    Thanks for the input everyone!

    Does anybody have a sample of TV they'd like to trade?
