    Default Citrus and Cigarettes - Any Suggestions?

    Hello Family,

    I wanted to see if anyone can recomend a fragrance that is a combination of citrus and cigarattes.

    The other day I walked by a fashionable lady that had the most intriguing scent imaginalble. All I could think was an amazing citrus floral with lots of cigarette smoke. Naturally, I had to ask her what she was wearing, Le Artisan's Chasse Aux Papillions (citrus floral - minus cigarate smoke). Turns out our lady in quetions smokes, thus I was smelling a combination of her perfume and cigarette.

    All I can say is that I need a bottle of both combined. Does anyone know if there is a citrus with cigaratte smell out there? It/s such a sexy union, someone has to have come up with it.

    Maybe Armani Attitude? I used to wear this and got a citric note with a cigarette smoke quality. Others may disagree!

    Good call on the JASMIN ET CIGARETTE!

    Also, try the Al-Rehab oil called Khaliji. The odd thing about this oil is that it starts with a strong non-sweet tobacco note and only later does a pleasant but sharp citric note follow and stay around for the rest of the journey!

    YSL Pour Homme has a strong sitrus note with a strange funky background, which is evocative of the general smell of a smoker. Not a pleasant smell to me, but to each his own!

    I do have Armani attitude but I don' t recognize that kind of smell... and it is a bad scent, imho.

    p.s. thinking about Fahrheniheit too and his cigare smell, I' ll never understand why people want to smell like a smoker...

    Try Hilde Soliani Belle Antonio - a bit spendy, but great cigarrette and coffee notes.

    Have you tried Cartier Declaration? Its so intensely cigarette-y on me that, as an ex-smoker, I find it slightly disconcerting. There's a fair blast of citrus in the top notes.

    Another approximation would be Knize Sec. Again, not cigarettes but (almost pure) incense with citrus makes the main accord. It's related to YSL pour homme but is clearer, crispier, and the overall aura is not so herbal-dusty. Smells like a good example of two-notes-contradicting.

    encens flamboyant, declaration and monsieur givenchy.
    alternatively,
    take the citrus of your choice
    decant into an atomizer.
    put a drop of birch tar oil in it.
    enjoy.

    I'm seeing lots of tobacco scents being recommended.

    The thread poster is NOT looking for a tobacco scent, he's looking for a tobacco smoke scent.
    My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2

    People who smoke cigarettes smell of more than just cigarette smoke. The also smell of cigarette ash, nicotine and tobacco and its aromatic qualities, both natural and added by the manufacturer. Many people mistake that mélange for the smoke itself which is just a part of the whole. I took the OPs meaning to be the sillage from her scent and her tobacco habit. Nowhere did the OP indicate the lady was smoking at the time although it could be easily interpreted that way. How about it ManlyScent. Was the lady smoking at the time?

    I was thinking of Annick Goutal, too...

    When I see the topic title, I keep thinking of Goutal's Eau de Monsieur. It has citrus notes but is very dry, some say bitter....not too much of a stretch to call it smokey. It is discontinued but I found a bottle pretty easily. Sample first, definitely.

    Maybe both of these, one on each wrist? : )

    I dont think Jasmin Et Cigarette will fit the bill.

    But citrus and cigratte smoke does sound like a great idea for a unique new EDC...imagine a clear, pristine citrus blast on top, with light florals in the heart notes with a hint of green, and then a smoky ashy-tabac blond like drydown. I say it could be a hit!
