    Unhappy Remy Latour Cigar Vs others

    Hello, ( sorry for the long post, but I was really happy to find a forum which can understand my recent passion about fragrances)

    For that last year I used to put on Raghba Wood Intense by Lattafa which I really like, it has this oriental incense smell and a very good longevity but I started to notice that people around me feel it is kind a cheap scent as here in the middle east we are all born and raised smelling incense in our houses, so I decided to find some other fragrance that I would like its smell, people would like it too, in the same time not that expensive and will last long enough ( I think this is kind of stupid as I think all of us is searching for the same )

    Anyways, I started doing my research and remembering the scents i used to like and other people like and I find that tobacco is one of these scents specially Remy Latour Cigar which my dad used to use in old good days, however I don't know much about how long it will stay ? with Raghba by lattafa the scent used to be there like 8 hours.

    I started to learn more about fragrances recently however my knowledge of fragrances is limited to the following :-

    1. Raghba Wood intense by Lattafa : really like it give it like 10/10 but not everybody like it around me, they are either really like or really hate.
    2. Seductive by Guess: good scent and people used to like it but last just for couple of hours 6/10
    3. Remy Latour Cigar : I remember the smell was 10/10 and people used to like it but I don't know about longevity
    4. Amber Blend by Davidoff : tried a sample in one of the malls here in Dubai, and although it is lasted on my body like 12 hours the starting scent is too much for my taste felt uncomfortable smelling it although other people liked it , the starting smell is like 4/10 but longevity and the scent that start to come after half an hour is like 10/10
    5. One man Show Jacques Bogart : was kind of the standard perfume in my childhood, will never touch it, every body here know how cheap it is. 6/10
    6. Euphoria Men Amber Gold by Calvin Klein : tried a sample but it is out of my budget but the smell was so nice, similar to amber blend but with better starting smell and less longevity I would give it over all 9/10
    7. Ameer Al Oudh Lattafa : Did not like it at all 1/10
    8. Hugo by Hugo boss Classic : Did have this one couple of times and liked it overall 8/10, but in the time being I don't want to get a fruity perfume.
    9. Xeryus By Givenchy: used it like 10 years ago but I remember that it was a good one, like 8/10.


    I think I sued other fragrances but the above list is what I remember very well, so based on the above, if I am on a tight budget, the maximum I can pay is around 180 (united Arab Dirhams) which is around 50 dollars, what do you recommend for me?


    Thanks in advance

    Try Lattafa Raghba if you really like Raghba Wood Intense. They're in the same style but different enough to have them both.

    Also adding Bogart pour Homme and Mystique Homme by Al Haramain- both sharing a certain resemblance with Cigar by Remy Latour, in terms of the sweeter tobacco with good performance and both are affordable enough to be simultaneously on budget, even if choosing both at once

    Perhaps Alcazar by Ted Lapidus

    Bogart mostly, but still considering Cigar as a very good second/alternative option
