    Default Creed Tabarome Millesime thoughts

    Hey folks,



    Just picked up a bottle, quite unique with an amazing tobacco and leather drydown. What are your thoughts on this one? Do you get good projection and longevity?

    Love it. Longevity is below average for me. Good projection for 1-2 hours, but I'm never bothered about that - the fragrance is for me.

    No leather for me.

    To me it smells like a sweet Jasmine type fragrance that has been darkened with tobacco and ginger to make it more masculine type scent. It also has a combination to my nose of sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver , subtly blended with lighter , fresh aroma of Green Tea mandarin and lemon all woven together in a bouquet of sweet/tobacco scent reminisce of the 1950's. Or to put it simply a sweet tobacco scent. Lol

    From memory I got about six hours or so with average projection. I like it as it has that old world gentlemen's club vibe going on.

    it takes a lot of sprays to have decent sillage, once over the FB has not been replaced!

    I dont get any leather, but it's a tremendously underrated Creed.

    Is this even possible?

    As a standalone it's just ok for me. Compared to 'Vintage' it fails miserably

    Own this and love it and I personally have no problem with its longevity and its projection.

    I get about average longevity and projection. It's a unique fragrance, and I don't really get any leather but the tobacco/ginger combo is quite nice. It's underrated for sure.

    I usually enjoy Creeds but this one is a bit offputting. The opening is a noxious blast of ginger backed by an unimpressive tobacco note. It's dry-down is an all too common tale better told by GIT, Royal Oud and Himalaya.

    It's a decade since I bought a bottle of this stuff - I liked it for a few years and then just sort of moved on. One of the more interesting ones from Creed, I thought.

    Have it and enjoy it. Maybe I would like it better if the ginger was toned down.
    No issues with longevity.

    Yes.

    As a standalone its great for me. I don't compare it against discontinued Creeds going for over
    $2,000, but I do favor it over Aventus, MI, and SMW.

    I agree. I find it soft and subtle. Interesting note- this is fine layered with ​Fleur du Thé Rose Bulgare.

    I've used up half of a 125ml bottle of this one.
    Never had one positive comment. Not even from my wife.

    For once, a Creed I don't get along with. I get too much ginger and wet tobacco reminding me on a chewed on cigar rather than the smokey aromatic tobacco I tend to like. It's just not a tobacco scent to me.

    The projection and longevity is great on me as usual with Creeds, but the compliments never manifested and I ended up swapping it for something else in the end. Not a bad fragrance, just not what I wanted. Creeds Royal Oud fills that role.

    My favorit Creed fragrance. One that actually could be my signature scent. It's both traditional and modern. It has a very classy gentlemans aura, and works great for both work and formal occasions. It opens with fresh ginger notes, and dries down to a wonderful tobacco aroma. Comparing to (the excellent) Tobacco Vanille, you can easily use Tabarome as a everyday-scent while the heavy Tobacco Vanille is more of a now-and-then scent. 2 sprays of Tabarome Millesime last all day on my skin, and projects very well. So, put on your white iron shirt, a couple sprays of Tabarome Millesime, and you will give a classy radiation to your surroundings.

    This is great layered with love in black. By itself, it's a very classy scent and a big compliment getter

    I own and like this a lot. I don't wear it often, to me seems rather formal.

    I love the ginger in this one. Spillage and projection seems quite strong for two hours or so then it becomes closer wearing for a total of about 6-8 hours.

    It can be a tough wear. But my then 7 year old son loved it on me. He's 18 now. My Wife thought it was ok. Not one of our faves. It's a little sharp in tone.

    Hmm.. I never really considered this one before. I must sniff it next time I'm near the Creed counter.

    This describes my view of it very nicely!

    It's interesting - I believe there is a lot of Iso E Super in it, but it's such a different scent from "the usual suspects", that it sneaks under the radar.

    Interesting combination - I can imagine that would be a nice combination. There are many subtle similarities that would make this combination very compatible.

    It rarely gets mentioned as a ladies scent, but even the Creed "celebrity sheet" lists some of their women customers as loving it. When I pay attention to it, I realize that it's a very floral scent. Woody floral, but floral. I think kumquat's layering idea makes a lot of sense, too.

    I'm kind of digging wearing Men's scents lately even though I didn't used to. I am glad to hear it has female followers. Now I am very interested. Thanks for the comment!

    This is about how I feel. There are only about 4 Creed fragrances that I just don't care for. This is one of them. My wife likes it on me, but I find it to be borderline scrubber.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    10. Kenneth Cole - Black

    This is actually my favorite Creed. I don't know why it doesn't get much love here on BN.

    To me, it's complex and eventful.

    Ginger, tobacco and a very nice leather in the drydown.

    I'm a huge fan of the house of Creed, but I didn't really care for this fragrance. Got too much ginger and zero tobacco. I sampled it about a couple years ago, may revisit in the future to see if my opinions change.

    Smelled this last year, and just bought a bottle off of BeautyEncounter tonight, as I remembered liking it a fair bit from the decant I had of it last winter. Hopefully no longevity issues with this one (and that I get something decently recent from B.E. :P)
