Michael for men by Michael Kors
I have been wearing Creed Tabarome Milliseme for some time now (I love it) and not being a millionaire I would love to find a fragrance that is similar but perhaps is easier to afford. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

ointments and perfume delight the heart....
+1 Aramis Havana - Spicy tobacco
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 delightsome 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.
Thank you to everyone for their replies. I am lucky to have a fine perfumer shop here where often I can find even obscure or high end fragrances not available in other department stores, etc. I'll take the proposed list with me and see what they have for me to test. Best regards, Katherine d'Armagh
Sir, I am in awe of your description of the Fumerie Turque. If you would be so kind an if you have the knowledge, could you offer up such a detailed description of the scents involved in my passionate favorite... Tabarome? I have never heard someone who obviously has a command of the vocabulary of fragrance talk about this treasured perfume before and to me that would be fascinating.
Thank you very much,
Chergui (also by Serge Lutens), is a nice tobacco scent, but I don't know if it's that much cheaper that Tabarome Millesime. I haven't yet tried Fumerie Turque, but it's on the list.
My only tobacco scent right now is Tobacco Vanille, but that doesn't sound like what you're looking for. And it's no cheaper than Creed.

Montana D´Homme red box = tobacco + patchouli + resins. Cheaper (and beter) alternative to Aramis Havana.
John Varvatos Vintage. Longevity isn't that great for many, but I get at least 5 hours.
