    Default Which Is The Best Out Of These Tobacco Colognes?

    I am on a budget, so I can't really experiment with a bunch of different colognes over a period of time to decide which one I like best - however I do love the scent of tobacco, so I wanted to get people's feedback on these:

    Dolce And Gabbana Pour Homme
    Vera Wang For Men
    Armani Code
    Michael Kors - Michael For Men
    Burberry London
    Versace - The Dreamer

    I would prefer a stronger tobacco scent compared to a cologne where the tobacco scent is faint or not the prominent scent. It can be sweet or mixed with a sort of alcohol/leather scent. If you think there are better tobacco colgnes than the ones that I have listed - then please let me know. I will probably try two - so which ones should I get.

    I look forward to hearing your feedback on these colognes and any recommendations you may have.

    Thanks,

    HM

    I haven't yet smelled the Michael Kors or Vera Wang, but if memory serves, none of the others on your list really showcase tobacco. I'd recommend Vermeil for Men. Quality tobacco leaf that's front and center, decent sillage and longevity, big bottle is around $17.

    I think you would enjoy Santa Maria Novella Acqua di Cuba.
    Also recommend sampling Herrera for Men, Czech and Speake Cuba, Serge Lutens Chergui / Fumerie Turque, Aramis Havana.

    From your list - Michael Kors.

    Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme is one that I got in a swap not too long ago, and although it has mixed reviews I was pleasantly surprised with it. It has a nice hit of green in opening, you definitely get the tobacco in the heart, and it's pretty much amber in the drydown. It's been a long time since I've tried Burberry London so I can't really make an accurate comparison between the two.

    Default Re: Which Is The Best Out Of These Tobacco Colognes?

    Is it true that the Dolce And Gabbana Pour Homme made today isn't the same as it was a few years back? I remember testing it 4 years ago and really liking it, but I chose something else at the time.

    The reason why I have listed these more common colognes, is because I am not buying online or through a specialty store - I am buying at the local department store and again, cost is an issue.

    I was leaning towards Burberry and Michael Kors - from the reviews I have read here, they both seem to have that cigar store, leather, booze and gas scent that I am looking for.


  12. #12

    Default Re: Which Is The Best Out Of These Tobacco Colognes?

    From your list I would say Michael for Men. But I agree that you need to check out Aramis Havana, Varvatos Vintage and Lanvin Avant Garde.

    The tobacco isn't prominent in current D&G PH, its gone way more soapy than it used to be.

    Either one would be suitable, though (IMHO) MK makes a bolder statement and has the better longevity / sillage.

    I don't know if I'd say it's better than Burberry London in general (not looking to pick a fight with half the forum!) but Vermeil is definitely more tobacco-centric. It has some other supporting notes including a slightly aromatic opening, small amounts of wood and musk, but most of what you'll get is glorious tobacco. Burberry London has is too but there's a little more going on that makes the tobacco seem less prominent, like the leather and cinnamon, and to me it has a bit more of a sweet spicy vibe than Vermeil.

    There's not much info out there on Vermeil. Here are a couple of bloggers' reviews:

    Can they both be worn as sort of every day scents? I know typically these are more fall/winter kind of colognes - but I typically don't care about that. If I feel like wearing a tabacco cologne in the summer, I will.

    What would you say is the general difference between the two - I take it Michael Kors has a stronger tabacco alchohol type scent. I was watching some Youtube reviews and one guy was coughing when he first sprayed it on, as it said it was very strong at the beginning. I take it Burberry London would be deemed more classy.

    Can you sort of give me a tale of the tape for both?

    Default Re: Which Is The Best Out Of These Tobacco Colognes?

    From your list, I personally enjoy Burberry London the most. I do think it's more of a fall/winter scent, due to the cinnamon/spices and soft leather note. Now that the weather is warming up (in some parts of the country), I'd recommend The One by Dolce and Gabbana. The tobacco is paired with amber and ginger. It's easily one of my favorite fragrances, but the performance leaves a lot to be desired. It can be found at just about any department store/Sephora or at an online discount site like Fragrancenet for a good price.

    Of course, there is always Tobacco Vanille, which is my favorite tobacco note.

  28. #28

    Default Re: Which Is The Best Out Of These Tobacco Colognes?

    Out of this list, Burberry London smells the most of tobacco after the opening moves on a bit. The best tobacco fragrances for men I've tried are: Soivohle Meerchaum, also Profumo AbdesSalaam Attar Tabac, or Chillum. I personally really like Tobacco Oud by Tom Ford - distinctive.

    The One by Dolce is my favorite tobacco scent. Unfortunately, performance is below-average. I go heavy on sprays (and I spray on clothes). The scent itself is beautiful and super versatile. Best on a warm night.

  34. #34

    Cool Re: Which Is The Best Out Of These Tobacco Colognes?

    Does The One make up for the changes in Pour Homme? If I liked the original Pour Homme - should I like The One as well or are they different even though both contain tobacco?

    My only concern with London is something that a few people bring up - that there is a pine almost Christmas tree scent in there. I am not a big fan of pine, so if it's heavy in a minty or tree like scent mixed with tobacco, then this one probably isn't for me.

    I want something that is more "the most interesting man in the world" style and class as he wins a big hand in poker or George Clooney in Oceans 11, but still be able to pull it off on a daily basis.

    Maybe I should have indicated that I prefer a more cigar like scent over a pipe one. Maybe it doesn't make a diffferece, but I thought that I should point that out.

    Can someone point out the differences between Michael Kors and The Dreamer.

    Also I am from Toronto, Canada - so some of the recommendations are either not available in stores or just incredibly expensive.

    Thanks a million.

    Dreamer fits with "super interesting" but the tobacco accord is not what stands out to me. I love "The One" and like the tobacco blended there. John Varvatos - Vintage has a strong but smooth tobacco smell that I couldn't pass up on. I just mentioned Cuba Red because you can find it at many perfume stores (are you close to Ontario Mills? A perfumania there probably carries it) that has a big cigar type tobacco smell. You can try out all the others, too.

    There's no way to say which is best, because best is subjective. Only you can know which snells best to you... but... Michael Kors for men is one I'd highly recommend checking out. I'll also second the recommendation for Varvatos Vintage.

    Of course I know it all comes down to testing some of these and finding out which ones I like. I just hate asking the department store for all these spray samples on a card - where after I while I can't tell which one is which. I would prefer to go in with 2 or 3 scents to try out.

    I am most intrigued by Michaels Kors over all the other ones mentioned - just some of the descriptions seem like my kind of thing and it appears to be heavier on the tabacco than say The Dreamer and Burberry For London sounds like it's heavy on the pine/Christmas tree scent.

    Plus how can you go wrong with comments like this:

    it smells of a leather trimmed 1974 sports car leaking gasoline. This hit the nail on the head for me.

    What all these notes smell like when put together is a boozy plum liquor drink setting on a suede card table with one of the players smoking a tobacco pipe. Every time I wear this I think of this image. If there was a fragrance for gambling or a fun night out on the town this is it. Great fragrance!

    For some reason, Michael for Men makes me feel "rich". It's difficult to explain. I have other fragrances that are more elegant, or that are more formal. But Michael for Men makes me feel "rich". Interesting feeling. Very masculine...and very rich.

    If you like TV, try Sonoma Scent Studio Tabac Aurea. It absolutely destroys Tobacco Vanille - and this comes from a self-proclaimed Tom Ford junkie :-)

    Tabac Aurea is more about tobacco with slight amber undertones, with much less vanilla and sticky sweetness that TV has. Highly recommend to at least try, it is absolutely beautiful.

    Burberry London is NOT heavy on a Christmas tree/pine scent - at least not to me I don't even get that "Christmas in a bottle" vibe that some others seem to insist is there - that's why scents are so individual in their appeal I think, people often perceive different aspects in varying degrees.

    Impossible to answer...because you're asking other people to pick what YOU like. All they can do is tell you what THEY like.

    Honestly, it depends on what you're looking for. Do you want tobacco as a main note, or a complimentary note? A sweet tobacco? Non-sweet? Honeyed? A dry one? Moist? Heavy, or light?

    Too many variables to answer the question...other than give an opinion as to which one (what kind) someone else likes best, rather than is the best for you.

    I totally understand that - which is why I had a list of cologne's for people to pick the best from that list. Some of those are also the best reviewed on this website.

    Tobacco doesn't have to be the main note, but I also don't want there just to be a hint of tobacco. In other words, I don't mind smelling like fancy cigars. While I never actually bought it, I really did love the sample I had for Dolce and Gabbana's Pour Homme that I tried a few years back. I understand that it doesn't smell like that anymore - but in terms of the tobacco note, what would be the original Pour Homme be described as? Is D&G's The One the same on any level?

    What kind of tobacco note does Michael Kors and Burberry London have?

    Thanks!

    Is the current version of Michael Kors For Men (with Michaeil Kors on the bottle) not of the same quality? What's the difference?

    Try A*Men Pure Havane.

    I agree. It won't cost you anymore than the street prices of most or all of the ones listed and is a heck of a lot better smelling, IMO. One of the best tobacco fragrances on the market, especially if you like your tobacco dry without the sweetness. If sweet tobacco on a budget is your goal, then I recommend getting your nose on Bogart pour Homme (sweet cherry pipe tobacco).

    This. Surprised it hasn't been brought up more. Str8 cherry flvrd pipe tobacco. Very sweet though, if overapplied or worn too often. I wear it a couple times a month, and enjoy it very much when i do. Ck shock is in the same camp.

    I don't know anything on our list (sorry), but i'd say Slumberhouse JEKE is truly fantastic and a must try for any tobacco lover.
    The discontinued Havana Vanille from l'artisan parfumeur is/was also sublime (though more feminine). And maybe diptyque's VOLUTES edp, in a more classical way, nicely evokes the smell of tobacco leaves.
