Thread: Just tried Tobacco Vanille
Not sure if it is due to the heavy tobacco leave note off the top but it smells smoky with cherry tobacco, vanille, and a hint of...mint maybe?? (could be the tobacco) Maybe since I'm a non smoker I am not liking this scent as much as I thought I would but something about it is smoky which is off putting. The vanille in this stuff is very nice though.

wait til the drydown...tobacco is heavies up front, it only gets better. frankly my fave part is probably 8+ hours after that just getting whiffs of what smells like vanilla/cinnamon
It's a matter of taste. I am a non-smoker but love the smell of unburnt tobacco.

I love it. Wear it light though. I only use one spray, and that is enough. I get the tobacco and vanilla mostly. I enjoy the drydown more than the opening (tobacco). I didn't like it much the first time, I believe because I wore it too heavy and it was too overpowering. Give it some more wearings.
I'm not a smoker as well

I was disappointed in this one. On my skin the tobacco was all but nonexistent, this was purely "vanille" on me.
Not a big fan of tobacco, but this is ok. Just spray lightly.
I don't get any smokiness out of TV. Tobacco, yes. Smoke, nope.
Like bathing in a vat of fudge.
Makes me gag.

It's just not something I want to smell like
I like it quite a bit. I get tobacco, but nothing smokey.
Hmm....TV shouldn't be smoky and certainly shouldn't smell minty. Where did you get your sample?
Well, give it a few more tries. Several of the reviewers here say their initial impression of TV wasn't that great, but then they went back to it and were glad they did.
TV is definitely a different kind of fragrance, I think. Takes some getting used to and knowing what to expect. After awhile, I want to EAT it, it smells so good to me.
This is a great scent, you can't spray a lot at all. The tobacco is strong at first but when it calms down that's when the beauty comes out
Yep, tobacco but not smoke. It's a fairly linear fragrance, with tobacco and vanilla dominant throughout even though it does dry down differently to initial spray and calm somewhat. I've read on BN that some people don't get the tobacco - I just can't imagine that! I'm a non smoker and I love this one. As others have said though - easy on the trigger!
Might grow on you. I tried it twice and bought it after the second time. Love the vanilla note.
Reminds me of going into the tobacconist with my dad when I was a child, he used to smoke flavoured pipe tobacco. TV has a beautiful aroma of cherry/vanilla tobacco (and nothing like actual smoke), I guess for me anyway I can't help but love it due to the emotional connotations & memories.
I was prepared for something nauseating and cloyingly suffocating like Le Male or Cuba Gold, but I tried it on a strip at Saks and was pleasantly surprised by a very deep and natural tobacco accord with some real vanilla absolute sweetening it a little. Never worn it though.
I enjoy it, but can only handle one spray & the first 15-30 minutes can still be a bit strong. After that, I like how the tobacco slowly fades over the hours and the rich vanilla comes through more and more. After several hours, it becomes my favorite vanilla scent and lasts for hours and hours beyond that. I can easily see how a lot of people wouldn't like it though...it's different, strong and projects like crazy.
When I first sample this, I was pretty much like wtf is this sh!t???? Washed it off, but then I try it again, and again and after the 3rd time, I realized how good this was, I guess I got used to the tobacco leaf smell, I'm not a smoker but I now smell the resemblance of a unlit cigarette and its not bad. I do 3 sprays is this and it lasted at least 10-12 hours, sometimes all day. One of the must have in my collection now.
Not my thing
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
I love it, as I think it's a very sensual scent, no matter when and where you wear it. I usually only do 1/4 to 1/2 (quarter to half) spray on each side of my neck.
