Thread: Best Tobacco Scents Out There
So far, Cuba by SMN is the best cigar tobacco fragrance I've tried, and unquestionably the best pipe tobacco scent would be Bell Antonio by Hilde Soliani. I am now going to try Meerschaum.
I think the Tom Ford smells as much like the wafting smell of warm sweet pastry as it does tobacco, not that realistic at all, being a former pipe smoker myself. Compare the Bell' Antonio, and I think you will experience the difference.

I like Tom Ford TV, but I am looking for a scent reminiscent of that smell that comes out of a box of Cuban cigars when you open the lid and peel back the paper...Ummmm. Suggestions?

A must try is Casbah by Piguet: absolutely great.
Herod by Parfums de Marly a toned down TV clone.
Chergui by Serge Lutens a scent that get better each time I wear it.
Casbah by Piquet sounds very interesting. Thanks Darvant. Have you done a review on it I will have to check.
Like others have mentioned Michael for Men, by Michael Kors.
Also, the drydown of CK One Shock for Him is a tobacco bomb. It's a bit on the synthetic side, but still smells nice.
For an honorable mention: the distinct tobacco note---more of a leaf tobacco, than pipe---in Guerlain Vetiver.
I submit Hommage de la Homme by Lalique. My wife picked up on the tobacco right away. A very green scent that is office friendly yet persists all day long.
Although Nordstrom lists it for like $92 for the 1.7, the 3.4 is on ebay for $38 shipped. The bottle is killer, BTW.
Casbah is a wonderful combination of spices, incense (the king) and tobacco/vetiver. The latter accord emerges in a second phase with a sort of almost "fluidy coziness" (warm but kind of sharp and wet with a touch of soap, vaguely a la The Dreamer) which is durable on the skin as the love we feel for our mums. The note of tobacco turns the "cold" frankincense in something carnal and complicated. Irresistible. Expensive.
Where is the love for Samba Skin!
"A sensuous blend of citrus notes and black pepper give brightness to the top note, while the subtle spiciness of cinnamon and the masculine scent of cedar and tobacco provide distinctive signature to the heart. The fragrance dries down to a warm amber, sueded musk, and patchouli nuances."
Good silage, good longevity and great price!
Everything I require - ok odd bottle - but great scent
Somebody has to mention the wonderful Cigar by Remy Latour.
+ 1 on Santa Maria Novella - but it's rare. Chergui is easier to find and it's a great tobacco (unlit) mixed with hay and honey.
One of the best in my opinion is the great Domenico Caraceni 1913, i love the tobacco/frankincense combinations.
Personally, I love Krizia Moods Uomo (tobacco leaf at its finest) and vintage Gianfranco Ferre for Man (rich pipe tobacco).
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
I like AbdesSalaam Chilum, it's a different take on the note.
Brineapple (Pineapple, Guava, Ylang Ylang, Marine Notes, Green Tea, Cade, Guaiacwood, Cedar Wood, Ozone) / Fur - (Vintage Musks, Woods, Leather) / Onsen Wood (Hinoki/Hiba/Cedar/Yuzu) / Winter XVI (Tree Saps, Extractions and Resins, Bois des Landes, Bourbon Vetiver, Spearmint, Frankincense & Myrrh) / L.O.M. Leather Oud Musk (Leather, Oud, Musk, Beeswax, Tobacco, Strawberry, Incense & Amber)
Tabac Rouge from Phaedon Tabac Aurea Sonoma scents studio, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla this one has a lot a fun I sample is very good but I prefer the other ones too, I mean they all good.
Since having last posted in this thread almost two years ago, one for me that has jumped to the forefront is Cuir Tabac by David Jourquin.
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
Thought I'd re-vitalize this thread.
To those listed, I would like to add
Insurrection II Wild
18.21 Man Made Tobacco
My updated top ten, in no particular order:
Cosmair Polo Green
Green Irish Tweed
L'Occitane Eau Des Baux
Spicebomb/Lomani Body and Soul(tie)
Hanae Mori HiM EDP
Halston Man Amber
I really like the play of tobacco in Creed's Royal Oud and on a side note, there is a shave soap made by Catie's Bubbles called "Le Piment de La Vie" that has a tobacco play that is 'to die for'. It is so divine. I use the soap in my Royal Oud shave kit, but this soap could easily pair with numerous fragrances as a morning grooming product.
I stress buying from this link as it should be the 'cream' soap formula. It's really the best smelling shave soap I have and it's beyond a treat to smell this while shaving. **Oh and I noticed the soap turned brown eventually , but according to multiple reviews I've read it's supposed to and does not effect the quality or scent at all.

Eau d'Italie Bois d'Ombrie is one of the best leather-tobacco out there. The note of tobacco is in here stark, dry, smoky, toasted (and woodsy at same time). Amazing.
Jo Malone - Tobacco & Mandarin
Xerjoff Oroville is incredible
