    Default Tabarome Millesime

    I just got a sample from the Perfumed Court along with a bunch of others, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed.

    This one doesn't get talked about very much, and seems to live in the shadow of the vintage formula. I get the citrus/leather vibe of Eau Sauvage, and the ginger/vetiver vibe of Bleu de Chanel - matched with a very nice tobacco note that makes this fragrance much better than either of the two I just mentioned.

    Anyone else dig this stuff?

    I like it. And yes, their mistake was to include "Tabarome" in the name. It lasts well and it's unique.

    Calling it Tabarome was like being Babe Ruth Jr.

    TM seems to be a Creed that people either like a lot or don't like at all.....usually right off the bat. There's not much middle ground. I've always had the feeling that it's one of the least favored Creeds, although I've seen nothing to really prove that. You just don't hear it talked about that much. It's a bit ironic, considering that vintage Tabarome was always very highly rated and is still one of the most sought after Creed fragrances ever. The two are nothing alike, however. It's not uncommon for someone to love the vintage Tabarome but absolutely loathe TM.

    I personally like TM for certain settings. It's certainly not a "fresh" scent. I think it's great when you're going to be around other men in a business-like setting. Either that, or having some scotch and cigars at the end of a fine meal. TM is definitely not a fragrance that you want to overspray yourself with. Also, women may not like it because it's not a "pretty" scent.

    I sampled TM a couple of weeks ago and was blown away by it, and it's now on my "to-do" list. It just smells fantastic. For me it's due to the not too sweet tobacco note - which can be a real challenge in some other fragrances with tobacco (yeah Tobacco Vanille, I'm looking at you).

    Hoping I'll be able to sample it once more to really get a feel for it. But yeah, I suspect you kind of need to like tobacco to really get into this one.

    I though it was okay. I like the green tea/fruit accord thing that's going on with the tobacco (which is fairly smooth), and it has a fresh ethereal quality in its sillage as well, which I like. But there's a cold bitter quality to it that killed it in the end for me. Just something a little off about it to me.

    I quite like it upon application, a sort of gingery vibe, but unfortunately, on my skin, it dries down on to an almost BO'ish smell, musty and unclean. Not one of my favourites.

    this fragrance is very interesting. the opening can be quite harsh with its stringent ginger accord. however, the drydown is absolutely beautiful. it develops into a very clean, soapy freshness that exudes comfort, familiarity, and class.

    i love wearing this with a starched white dress shirt and slacks. a perfect office scent.

    wouldn't seem like it, but in the drydown phase, this is a compliment magnet. chicks seem to dig it.

    Mind you, perhaps I should revisit it by way of a decant, as by way of an example I have NEVER tried an "official" sample of Millesime Imperial that wasn't a salty abomination, and nothing like what actually comes in a full bottle.

    While I found TM to be a good citrus-ginger scent all in all, even with a bit formal character to it,
    I wonder if perfumer actually smelled any tobacco, and I mean the real stuff - an unflavored Virginia pipe tobacco or a cigar.
    Having smelled or smoked a cigarette doesn't count as there's almost no tobacco in it these days.
    The drydown, at least on my skin, is so clean and laundry-accented, so I'd call this one "Original Clean".

    Sadly I never tried Vintage Tabarome, but I'm bearing myself up having an occasional cigar.

    Hi all,

    I believe CREED Tabarome Millisime was the first (Niche ?) fragrance I ever bought (from another BN member) back in 2003. I ADORE, LOVE, Creed Tabarome Millesime! In fact, I would say that it is one of my very favorite fragrances period. I also owned (and liked) BdP, Millesime Imperial and sampled GIT and several other Creeds. Tabarome Millesime just works on my fair skin. Every time I've worn Tabarome Millesime, I can't stop smelling my wrist! Ahhhhh, I swear, it gets me HIGH!
    I need to purchase a new bottle of Tabarome Millesime before Fall. In my book, Creed Tabarome Millesime is AWESOME! SixCats! has spoken.

    For ME, Tabarome Millesime is wonderful. I realize that some fragrances will not work/be for everyone. BdP, Millesime Imperial, GIT, etc. are (imho) excellent (at least to my Nose). I have little doubt that MANY factors such as ones ethnic make up, diet, location, Meds, past experiences, etc. contribute/effect how a fragrance works (or not) on a person. I hope someday you'll grow to love Tabarome Millesime as much as I do.

    Tabarome Millesime is a very good fragrance. Less formal and less impressive than its great and older Tabarome namesake, TM is fresher, less powerful and more of an everyday scent. The freshness of the prominent ginger is enhanced by the touch of citrus, and the tobacco is much more in the background. TM is a favourite in cooler weather and is very versatile. It is a fine scent that stands on it's own feet.

    A strong ginger scent, and I wish there was more tobacco as the name implies, such as the new Volutes by Dyptique or Back to Black and Tobacco Vanille.

    Yes, I dig this stuff! After a break I have recently start wearing Tabarome Millesime again, and it has grown to be one of my top favorits from Creed. The reason? It has everything I like in a fragrance. The most important is that it's both modern and classical. Unlike many others, I love the ginger-tobacco combo. It starts quite fresh and clean, with a very sophistcated tobacco aroma in the background. As time goes by, the tobacco is more salient, and the scent smells extremely elegant in my oppinion.
    - I like the scent category classic/formal/elegant, but often I have problems finding scents that fits my style. With Tabarome Millesime I've find a scent that I feel fits me. Staying power is excellent, and sillage is just perfect. I would almost go as far to say this could be my signature scent!
    Don't judge or elude this scent because of all the negative mention. Many people that dont like this scent has a tendency to compare it to other stronger tobacco scents and the vintage Tabarome. Dont do that! It has to be judge as a individual fragrance. Highly underrated in my oppinion.
