    Just get Acqua di Gio. You've pitted three scents against it already. In the nicest possible way, you need to make your own mind up. You're looking for an excuse to buy the Armani so just get it already.

    AdG is your safest bet. Tobacco Vanille isn't for everyone, IMO.

    TF Tobacco Vanille is way up there IMO in terms of prestige. Quite expensive as well, great projection and longevity. It's a good pick and at least not everyone has it as compared to Aqua di Gio, which is a very common scent (IMO, noses are fed up with this scent....won't get you much complements because everyone already knows what it is). I wanna be fair to Aqua Di Gio...its a good scent, but just too common. Girls will take you seriously if you're wearing a Tom Ford by the way. the choice is yours though!!!

    These two aren't even in the same group. Like the others have said, get the ADG.

    Acqua di Gio will most likely get more female compliments cause it's the king of generic, safe, pleasant, fresh smell, so girls like that (plus it's the most popular fragrance in the world, so big suprise that it's popular for a reason).

    Tobacco Vanille is a different monster entirely. It's a very potent, very sweet and high end masterpiece. Also gets compliments but it's a different kind of fragrance. Stoic, powerful, makes you feel gooooood, also lasts a long time. A bit on the expensive side, but to me it's the best vanilla fragrance that's available on the market.

    I would think AdG is probably the safest scent that garners you the most compliments. AdG is also more versatile as compared to TV.
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    Girls will like AdG. Women will like TV.

    That's my experience, at least.

    Tobacco Vanille is much more unique than ADG. Everyone smells like ADG.

    Still, wear what you like and not for someone else.

    I prefer Tobacco Vanille. But if the OP is looking for compliments and female attention, ADG will work much better. I just think it is more pleasant to the general public.

    +1. ADG is the fragrance you seek. Tobacco Vanille is fantastic and more gentelmanly than ADG, but it's also more ballsy. ADG is a safe, guaranteed compliment getter.

    Totally. Anyway, wouldn't you like someone to like you for other attributes rather than what fragrance you happen to be wearing?

    My reply is based on the OP's question and needs, not on my prefferences or basenoters' ones. Perhaps you are thinking wrong on the right website.
