    Default Your favorite tobacco?

    A classic note, tobacco has a long history in perfumery and lives on in many recent popular designer releases as well as in more challenging niche perfumes. Variations seem almost endless, ranging from sweet over smoky to moist or leafy green - but which fragrance contains the best tobacco note or represents the most rewarding interpretation of the rich and complex smell of tobacco?
    My own vote goes to the heavily smoky and ambery interpretation in Fumerie Turque - but which one is your favorite? Maybe I didn't even list it?

    Default Re: Your favorite tobacco?

    Favorites include Tabac or Don Corleone by Profumo.it / Scents of the Soul (Abdes Salaam) and Amouage's Tribute Attar

    With the common Vanilla companion - Tom Ford's TV or L'Artisan's Havana Vanille (since turned Vanille Absolument for a copyright claim on the name)

    With florals and still masculine - Histories de Parfum's 1740 or Tubereuse III Animale, maybe even Xerjoff's Oroville, which has grown on me as a dry and herbal take on tobacco.

    I keep hoping that Serge Lutens will focus on a great tobacco (since Fumerie Turque smells like a pool of sun-thickened cow piss to me). I love the tobacco in Sarassins and Voix Noire, but unfortunately it's a minor player in both.

    TF is more pipe smelling to me. More like cherry tobacco
    Pure Havane is a right balanced tobacco gourmand.
    Back to back has a back drop of tobacco and I enjoy it a lot. The honey is more dominant to my nose those and since I enjoy it my nose tends to focus on that note.

    My vote went for Fumerie Turque - too bad that I have so strong allergic reactions that I can't wear it.
    Apart from that one, the next one might be Herod from Marly, missing from the list. A bit heavy to my taste, but tobacco scents tend to be heavy.

    I also voted for Fumerie Turque as my favorite from the list, but overall I really prefer Don Corleone by Abdes Salaam.

    Thanks, everybody - it seems Tobacco Vanille simply runs faster than all its competitors in this category. It's been far ahead right from the start. In 2nd and 3rd positions, Pure Havane and Back to Black are performing very strongly as well, Fumerie Turque trailing behind them as no. 4 at the moment. At the other end of the race, classics Alt-Innsbruck and Habanita haven't moved at all and have yet to score a single vote each. Very interesting.
    It's been really exciting to follow, and I thank all of you for voting and for posting your comments or suggestions. And do feel free to go on voting, guys - the poll stays open!

    Default Re: Your favorite tobacco?

    I voted for Alt-Innsbruck. I think that it hasn't been getting any votes because most people do not know about it. It also imo doesn't have a pipe tobacco smell like most fragrances. It has more of a tobacco floral and tobacco leaf scent.

  41. #41

    Default Re: Your favorite tobacco?

    Although I chose Back to Black by Kilian I wouldn't classify it as a tobacco fragrance. I certainly don't get any tobacco out of it. It's a hell of a scent though! One of my all time fav's.

    I voted for Baque, but there aren't a lot of people who have smelled it, so it probably won't do well in a poll. C&S Cuba and Fumerie Turque were also serious contenders for me.

    I'm with the OP and voted Fumerie Turque.

    I also love Tribute attar and Tobacco Vanille. Now that someone has reminded me of it, Volutes is pretty awesome too - reminds me of Chergui...

    Having just received Michael Kors - Michael for Men a couple of days ago I cannot stop spraying it on myself . Out of all the tobacco scents I have this one is by far the best! To me it really does smell like pipe tobacco, not the burning of the tobacco but rather the tobacco straight out of a fresh bag just being loaded into a pipe and as you are smelling that you can catch a whiff of a vintage glass of whiskey on the table next to the pipe. This stuff is amazing!!

    Burberry London, by a mile.

    Surprising to see Tobacco Vanille leading the charts. There is very little tobacco, just mostly in the beginning and shortly after everything escalates into vanilla all over. Ew

    Since Pure Havane is my favourite designer of all time, it's a no brainer for me. Not the most sophisticated scent in the world but I just love it.

    Out of those, I do really love Baque, but I find it's brother Sova better. That being said, as a purely tobacco scent goes, Baque is probably best.

    Others I love are TV and BtB from your list.

    Great choices (expecially Havana drives me crazy), i love also Domenico Caraceni 1913 (incensey tobacco), Basala (for me it possesses tobacco in the blend), Habanita, C&S Cuba and Michael for Men by Michael Kors. I would like to try again Vintage Tabarome by now so far in my olfactory memory.
