    Default Montale or Mancera Recommendation

    Would like to try Montale or Mancera but cannot buy them around here. Looking for something strong, tobacco, vannile, oud, patchouli, and leather or something along those lines. I do like the Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla but it is just a tad too sweet. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Give Mancera Red Tobacco a try.

    It's a very realistic tobacco with excellent longevity and projection and it checks most of your boxes.

    2nd on Red Tobacco. I don't reach for it much, but I enjoy the heck out of it when I do.

    Its a very VERY strong tobacco/oud/vanilla fragrance with a bit of patchouli. Pretty much everything on your list except for the leather.

    As a Tobacco Vanille alternative I would suggest Phaedon Tabac Rouge

    I recently picked up Montale: Leather Patchouli and I'm really digging it.
    You can't buy good taste.

    Red Tobacco fits your bill. Strong tobacco with a touch of vanilla, not too sweet, lasts all day on my skin and projects like a bomb.

    Welcome!

    I would go for the classic, basic Montale oud, Black aoud.

    Another one that sounds like it may be up your alley and not already listed is Montale Aoud Leather.

    You’re mentioning too many notes. Maybe give us a more focussed description and someone can suggest the best match for what you’re after.
