    Default Tobacco Vanille for a beach gathering at night?

    Long story short, getting together with some people for a friends birthday. Meeting at the beach at night. This is SoCal beach weather, breezy with temps in the lower to mid 60's. Might go out for drinks or something to eat after hanging out at the beach. Would Tobacco Vanille work?

    Sounds good to me and TV should be perfect in the cooler night air in the open. Enjoy your evening.

    I wouldnt. Youll feel sticky. Go with something fresh and salty. Save TV for indoor cool winter nights.

    Go for it man. Tobacco Vanille can be used any season. Two sprays for warmer climate weather.

    I find TV to be amazing in a nice open area at night. Do it!

    Good choice, TV, with its rich composition, superior longevity and very good projection, will be just the right ticket for a wonderful, cool evening beachside.

    Cool Re: Tobacco Vanille for a beach gathering at night?

    I live in Brasil. very humid and hot weather.
    At night, nothing formal, any Water from Nicolai..( Patricia Nicolai , they deliver worldwide..)
    Never please 4711 cologne water ( joke ).
    My suggestion : LA VIE AU CHATEAU......it is wonderful.

    man this whole "cloying in the heat" thing is b.s. as long as people are generally ok with the scent (like some may not like TV since it has tobacco smell) they won't care if you wear it in summer or winter (though obviously it's a strong perfume so no need to overdo it in warmer weather)

    As long as its not a hot humid, you could do a Tabac based fragrance on the beach at night, If its really hot, an oceanic scents with citrus top notes would be a better bet.

    I live in DC and it gets very humid and hot here...mid 90's. I wear TV any time I want. Day, night...whenever. It is a wonderful fragrance and does very well in the heat.

    Maybe not the ideal situation for TV, but TV in a less-than-optimal situation would still be better than most fragrances in their optimal situation...
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    TV is a cooler weather frag for me, and not really a beach scene scent so I wouldn't. That said, if you feel so inclined, roll with it.

    I would wear this in a heartbeat. Your situation sounds PERFECT for Tobacco Vanille! PERFECT!

    People, how can this not be a perfect venue for TV? Open air venue, cool air, breezy, two or three sprays? Perfect!
