    I love Noir de Noir. The dry down is really nice: sweet & chocolaty. I'm not sure whether I like this more than Tobacco Vanille though. I do know that Noir de Noir is more feminine, but also more versatile.

    To be honest, if I had to buy a bottle of just one of them, not sure which I'd choose. I'd probably lean more towards Noir de Noir because of the versatility factor.

    I liked TV and am still in the process of testing it to see if its something i need, however, it seems to bore me a bit, not sure if this is due to other scents having a similiar vibe (Pure Havane, Back to Black). It's just a bit too linear , and gets sweeter on my skin as it progresses, so it's not as masculine as many make it out to be, well nont on my skin at least.

    Tobacco Vanille's tobacco note is very smooth, while Back to Black's becomes sharp from its middle stage; and there's barely any tobacco in Pure Havane.

    Everything stated is true, i'm just trying to see if I like TV enough to justify the price when i have these other options that i enjoy. I do agree TV is much smoother and better quality.

    I've been thinking of what to layer NdN with to take off that fem edge... I'm thinking some kind of gourmand incense like Kyoto. Any other ideas? (I saw the Tuscan Leather rec above)
    Tom Ford Splits!!!! - Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Oud Wood, Noir de Noir - PATCHOULI ABSOLU
    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress, Neroli Portofino, Costa Azzura, Azure Lime, Champacca Absolute

    HARD TO FIND - Lavender Palm, Arabian Wood, and AMBER ABSOLUTE, etc...


    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I have both, but I think I'd go with Noir de Noir over TV if I had to choose...although, if we're choosing Private Blend scents, I'd take my Amber Absolute and maybe even Italian Cypress over TV as well...all good fragrances. There are only a couple from this line that I don't like.
