    Default The best tobaccos at less than 100 dollars a bottle.

    Which scents in your opinion are the best for less than one hundred dollars? The only other requirement is that they don't smell like cigarettes, like guerlain vetiver.

    I second this. Tabac Aurea is more of a leafy tobacco but still has some smoky elements. This is truly a great scent.

    Versace Dreamer is my favorite (although, the fresh tobacco leaf note in it does remind me more of cigarette tobacco than the sweet/honeyed pipe or cigar tobacco. But I enjoy that.) Maybe I should check out Guerlain's Vetiver

    Depends on whether you want mostly tobacco, or a scent that uses it well.

    If it's the latter, may I present to you:



    I'm wearing a sample of this for the first time today and it's definitely got a nice, dry tobacco mixed with lots of other goodies.

    Agree whole heartedly with Versace's The Dreamer and Mugler's Pure Havane.

    The Dreamer's tabacco smells like a freshly rolled cigarette and Pure Havane's tabacco smells like wet, curing tobacco leaves hanging in a Cuban shed

    I suppose Vintage Tabarome was the best tobacco ever.

    The tobaccos of today that I like are Pure Havane, Aramis Havana, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, and Creed Tabarome Millesime.

    Try Slumberhouse's Jeke as well. The first 15 minutes or so are a bit off-kilter but after that is a sweet and warm tobacco. Thumbs up.

    I agree that it depends on what type of tobacco you're after.

    If you want a fragrance that smells like a fine cigar, then JackHunter and DrSeid are correct, and Aramis Havana is an excellent suggestion.

    It really captures the essence of smoking a good Montecristo or Opus X, and yet Havana doesn't offend those around you who don't smoke cigars.

    +1. Didn't think anything of it because of the cheesy presentation and name, but everytime I wear it I thoroughly enjoy it.

    I have tried the majority of the frags suggested on this page, and this is by far my favorite. Its called Aficionado by Cigar Colognes. Probably the cheapest on this thread too. You can get it online for about 10-20 dollars a bottle. TRY IT!!!!

    I'm Jumping in the Aramis Havana bandwagon. Smells awesome and stays complex from start to finish. Could easily be a niche fragrance selling for over 100 clams a bottle...thank God it's not.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    Slumberhouse Jeke (as mentioned earlier, Sova is also good, though it's less about tobacco and more about hay and other notes)

    Another good one, but it has to be vintage, as Hobbes rightly noted. Now I usually don't get too much in a tussy over reformulations, but honestly, they REALLY botched this one up with the reform. The new one smells like cheap soap. The original was fantastic.
