    Default Tobacco seems to have been recreated really well in scents, what about liquor scents?

    • Many B'Noters have confessed their love for tobacco and how many brands do a good job of recreating the bright leaf scent. What about whiskey?
    • Can anyone name a manufacturer that has done a great job of recreating or mixing whiskey?

    • Thanks.

    Tim Mcgraw's Southern Blend if you like bourbon (I like this one the best). Virgin Island Water if you like coconut rum (Malibu). Pure Malt if you like whiskey (Johnny Walker).

    I dunno about whiskey, but Dilys by Laura Ashley has a Miller High Life kind of note. However, I think that's because my bottle has turned.

    Whiskey / whisky / bourbon / scotch is my poison of choice in every situation. I love a great 25+ scotch, especially the smell of it. That said, everything that promises the smell of a good malt has fallen short, in my opinion. Pure Malt does an okay job, but, that part of the frag fads pretty quickly unfortunately.

    Age is not a criterium. I prefer the standard Lagavulin 16-y-o to mayn older ones. But of course I would enjoy an Ardbeg Lord of the isles. .) But this is not the single malt forum.

    Totally agree, and if you think the perfume hobby is costly...
    On a slightly related note, though, I think Tobacco Vanille is a perfect pairing to drinking scotch.

    1920 Extreme by Bois 1920 has a velvety bourbon drydown. I also get a slight bourbon note in the Cozè's opening.

    You said liquor in general on the post title, so by far I would have to go with Idole de Lubin. This is pure spiced rum to me (which isn't necessary a bad thing). As for whiskey, the only one I've tried is Pure Malt, and that is more of a booziness to me than a specific whiskey note.

    Frapin's 1270 was a very boozy cognac accord.

    Burberry London also has a boozy/wine note to it.

    I have two for you. For a vodka, champagne smack try Ambre Russe, for scotch try Fumidius from Profumum. As was mentioned I also love Idole from Lubin.

    This might seem strange but, unlike solid-state tobacco, whiskey almost is perfume: odorants suspended in high-proof alcohol.

    Maybe you should just try dabbing some on, right from the bottle?

    IDK about whiskey but Straight to Heaven by Kilian has strong rum note.

    Frapin 1270 = cognac
    Frapin 1697 = rum/wine?
    Frapin L'Humaniste = care for Gin & Tonic anyone?
    by Kilian Straight to Heaven = rum
    Lubin Idole = rum

    I'm always cautious with alcohol notes. In the BBC documentary CB talks about a woman client, actress, who had a director pull her aside and ask if drink was going to be a problem with her - it turned out it was her perfume, and she brought it in to convince him.

    Botrytis makes a scent with wine.

    What no love for Laphroaig!?

    Anyway there's been no fragrance I've smelled that does any sort of justice to decent whisky.

    Maybe a few give you a cheap whiskey vibe but then again they're no Pure Pot Still whiskey

    What? Oh right not a whisky forum .....

    Fragrances have done boozy but I haven't smelled any that have done a recreation and I'm not sure it could be done.

    Demeter makes a Gin & Tonic scent and some mixed drink scents.

    One reviewer compared Tom Ford Extreme to Lagavulin:

    Incidentally, I got the last bottle of Ardbeg in town. I'm trying to enjoy it rather than ration it.

    I love Laphroaig.

    When it comes to whisky notes I agree, there are no fragrances I know of that get it just right.
    Pure Malt and Fumidus are decent though.

    Although I do like the occasional bourbon, it should always be spelled whisky!

    "Although I do like the occasional bourbon, it should always be spelled whisky!"

    Surely, "Bourbon" should always be spelled "Bourbon"?

    On a slightly more serious note, the spelling "whisky" should always be used when referring to Scotch Whisky. Use whiskey when referring to (or drinking!) Irish Whiskey.

    If it's not Scotch or Irish.... it just ain't whisky.... or whiskey!!!!
