    Default Phaedon Tabac Rouge..

    I just got my decant of it but currently I have on some silly By Kilian scent..
    anyway-just looking at the pyramid this seems phenominal..
    I have heard it's a smoother TV..

    Anyone tried this yet?

    I own a bottle of it. Wonderful stuff. Excellent longevity and very smooth.

    Lovely scent. Worth buying.
    If you like TV, then this is a safe blind buy.

    I don't see vanilla in the list of notes...

    Is the benzoin prominent in this (ie: powdery)?

    I have a sample that I dabbed once on my wrist. First impression, it is very close to TV. I like it but I wouldn't buy it with TV in my collection.

    I'm waiting on a sample from Lucky Scent. I'm looking for an alternative to TV and EdB is not it.

    T.V. is great stuff but I just can't force myself to buy a full bottle at that ridiculous price. And your right, Eau de Baux is definitely not the answer. Due to positive feedback on T.R., I also have ordered a decant from Lucky Scent. We shall see.......!!

    Has anyone tried Arso -(profumvum). It is tobacoo but has no vanilla sweetness. Very nice smooth scent. Phaedon tabac is nice and not ridiculously expensive

    Exactly! I got my sample the other day and they are VERY CLOSE in scent. If someone was walking by wearing Tabac Rouge I would swear it was TV.

    Comparing them side-by-side TV is still the better fragrance but for a 100ml we're talking about $160 vs $290.

    I came across this recently and would like to give it a sampling. I haven't really found a tobacco scent I immensely enjoy besides Amouage Tribute.

    I own Pure Havane and Bogart Pour Homme. I've sampled Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille but wasn't impressed.

    I think TV is astonishing..
    I prefer the loud types..

    I have a decant of I Profumi di Firenze Tobacco on the way..
    I have Odori Tobacco also to sample in the near future

    I didn't find TV to be very loud felt it was on the weaker side. It was a small sample though. I enjoy loud scents some of my favorite fragrances are Epic Man, Leather Oud, and Gold Man.

    I did enjoy Czech and Speake Cuba when I sampled it.

    I see in the SOTD thread you're wearing this. What are your thoughts on Tabac Rouge? Is it worth a try if I didn't find Tobacco Vanille that interesting?

    Very similar to TV but with a lower price tag....Yeah, another win for the Lay man....it's easy to wear, and easier in your pockets won't leave a hole and won't but a dent in your wallet in comparison to TV, although neither are my choice of scent but a great grab ...

    My SOTD..
    It wears a bit smoother than TV..
    Also as mentioned it's $160 for 3.4 oz..
    I might buy it once my samples of it and TV run out..
    That could be another few years..
    It's not a high priority..

    Wearing a sample now and all I can say is wow! This is some really good stuff. This might be my replacement for when I run out of my beloved Tobacco Vanille. Luckily, I don't need to make this decision anytime soon.
    My current top ten:
    1. Oud Wood
    2. Spice and Wood
    3. Herod
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Tonka Imperial
    6. Dior Homme
    7. Epic Man
    8. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    9. Noir de Noir
    10. Terre D'Hermes
    Currently wearing: Epic Man by Amouage

    IMHO, this is spicier than TV. And, a lot less "vanilla." The vanilla in TV overwhelms me over time. Tabac Rouge doesn't have the sillage of TV but, it's a fantastic fragrance and quite a bargain compared to TV. .

    This fragrance is the best thing I've ever discovered in the fragrance world. I am totally infatuated with the scent, and I will consider myself lucky if I can find another fragrance that I like as much as this one. Absolutely amazing. I think I am going to put on another spray before bed.
