    I read one review of "Back to Black" that the reviewer had layered Chergui with it and had liked the effect. Don't know if people could smell him a mile away, but I guess it would be one way to get a chocolately, tobacco fragrance.

    I get a pipe smell from Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille. No chocolate. Also another spiced tobacco, there is also Egoiste. No chocolate. Of course there is Pure Havane and TF Tobacco Vanille. Also, this may be more sweet than you are looking for but there is also Field Notes From Paris by Ineke. A sampler set of her creations is 25 bucks. Plus that 25 bucks goes towards a full bottle if you decide to get one.

    pinkjewel,

    as a pipe smoker for about 15 years I can only tell about
    - Michael for Men by Michael Kors
    - Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens

    Haven't any chance to try most of niche stuff mentioned, but from what I have smelled,
    Aramis Havana, Odori Tobacco and Guerlain Vetiver have more of a natural tobacco leaf character rather than matured pipe smoking mixture.
    Versace Dreamer to my nose is just a composition of some tobacco note and some sweet and flowery notes. Interesting on its own, again it doesn't make me feel like I'm smelling pipe tobacco. BTW, yes I have smelled and smoked lots of so called Lakeland scented flakes with distinctive "cologney" character (some with rose, others with geranium and other flowery notes) from Gawith Hoggarth TT, Kendal, England. Bob's Chocolate Flake might be of interest to you.

    If you have time, I'd say first go to a tobacconist shop (with a good range of bulk pipe tobacco which is sold by weight, tobacco in tins won't help you), there you pick the blend which is closest to your memories (it doesn't cost high bucks, believe me), and then go to niche boutiques with this kind of "sample" to find out a fragrance that smells close to it.
    Hope this helps.

    Regards, Odor.

    I'd definitely try Sonoma Scent Studio Tabac Aurea. It smells like golden tobacco leaves left out to try, with a touch of amber sweetness.

    +1 on Kilian Back to Black, TF Tobacco Vanille, Michael Kors, Pure Havane, SL Chergui, and Odori Tobacco.

    Also, you could layer one of the frags mentioned in this thread with a cocoa scent like Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 to get the desired affect. I think the cocoa and patchouli would mix nicely with some of these tobacco frags.

    thanks,kalli for the suggestions., but is Guerlain's Spiritueuse Double Vanille still available? I noticed that it was a limited edition from 2007. There is a Guerlain Boutique in Vegas-do you know if the boutiques carry any of these discontinued fragrances?

    thanks so much, Odor!! I never thought of going to a tobacco shop to try to replicate the scent-what a great idea! Off to google a tobacco shop near me.

    Yes- I'm wondering if the key will be layering. Thanks for the heads up for SL Borneo 1834 as possibly one to add for the chocolate scent.

    I believe yes, you can find it at Guerlain boutiques..according to this thread:

    I get vanilla bean and pipe tobacco scent from it. But maybe not everyone will smell the tobacco? Idk. Worth sniffing though I think.

    So many wonderful suggestions from everyone. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge with me. I'm making a list of the scents I think we'll be able to find in Vegas to sample and another list of ones to order online to sample. Unfortunately there have also been some great suggestions of fragrances that I don't think I'll be able to find-or if I can find small amounts-I don't want to fall in love with something that I won't be able to find again!!

    Saks carries it, so I am sure the Guerlain Boutique will.

    Agree with the above.

    I'll add Eau du Fier by Annick Goutal. Only available in Paris. But who knows, you may be going there tomorrow for all we know.

    Also John Galliano - Diptyque. It's a residence spray. Which in retrospect will give you what you're after more so than a perfume.

    I have tried both Havane by Mugler and Kilian Back to Black and have to say these are by far to me the best ones out there.
    I have only been in this game for a little bit over a year butif you want a softer honey Tobacco leaf smell than Havane is the one and if you want the literal pipe Tobacco smeared on your skin (in a good way) then i think Kilian Back to Black is it.they both have ridiculous longevity and are worth trying!

    I've tried a ton of tobacco frags. My father smoked a pipe when I was little and it's a very nostalgic scent for me. The closest I have found to that pipe tobacco scent that I recall from my youth is Odori Tabacco. As much as I like Tobacco Vanille, Back to Black, and some of the others mentioned here, the Odori is the closest scent I've found to the real thing.

    But no chocolate in that one....

    The only tobacco scent I own Pure Havane and its true I just recently smelled the cigar note in this after applying it a few times. Cherry, a*men with styrax (medicinal) dry down is what I usually got, however its still interesting and safe to wear at the same time so I like it.

    Do try:

    Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens - Upon application, one is treated to a comforting, pipe tobacco accord from the spicy and slightly tarry Balkan tobacco coupled with tonka bean with its vanillic earthiness, and white honey with its mildly sweet facet tinged with urine. A flavorful, date and rum raisin currant pervades and enhances the pleasantness of the tobacco. A whisper of sensuous jasmine flitters about. Transitioning to the awaiting middle, a wonderful smokehouse accord and smoked leather envelop the inviting opening. Vanilla infuses the brew with its lightly woody and caramel aspects. And a deliciously seductive, red rose with fruity glimmers and a cabernet-like facet marries deligthsome beeswax acquiring its ambery, honeyed and sweet hay character, and makes itself known. This luxurious heart segues to the waiting base. Here, in the rousing base, the syrupy sweetness of styrax commingles with the woody freshness of juniper berries, the peppery mustiness of patchouli as well as the subtly sour and urinal nuances of Peru balsam. An intriguing drydown ensues. This fascinating composition has minimal projection, remaining a skin scent and fostering its use in close quarters; however, its longevity is very good. This captivating, masculine scent is very layered and complex, and should be held in high regard in one's wardrobe.

    So looking at my list, there are over 20 suggestions. I've dismissed a few after looking at reviews and difficulty of sampling (ie-no availability in Vegas) so I've dwindled the list to around 15 to sample in Las Vegas this weekend. Might still be a tad too many (LOL). We'll try out the most promising first and see how far we get.

    thank you to everyone who has contributed and I'll update with our thoughts after we get back!!
