Reviews of Tobacco

Franck Boclet Tobacco EDP (sample) -

Like, but not Love. I could see wearing this one around the holidays as it is not overpowering or too sweet so it won't make all of your food taste like cake frosting.

My main issue with this fragrance is that it smells exactly like a scented candle. More often than not, I don't fancy to smell like a candle. Even an expensive, extra fancy one. I was hoping the vetiver in the base would add a bit of smoke, but it wasn't meant to be.

For tobacco frag heads, this definitely leans unisex and the tobacco note is well balanced with the dried fruits. A much more subtle composition overall than Tobacco Vanille.

2.5 stars.

One of many fragrances to follow in the footsteps of Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, Franck Boclet Tobacco preserves the distinctive honey-vanilla of the Tom Ford but eschews the bombast of the Tom Ford scent for a more tasteful opulence. The dried fruits are particularly rich here.

It's quite nice and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it over Tobacco Vanille due to its additional note separation, though but it unfortunately suffers from belonging to a world in which Phaedon Tabac Rouge exists, which is more to my taste due to its richer tobacco note.

A more elegant brother of TF TV. The opening is almost the same but smoother on this one.

IMO is better than TV and more classy and smells more natural. Not to mention the tobacco notes are better here and the vanilla is not an atomic bomb like in his brother.

Prunes + honey notes mixed with tobacco leafs, amber, vanilla, tonka beans and benzoin makes Tobacco the best from all Franck Boclet's perfume list.

On my skin it lasts 10 hours + and i always get compliments.

Projection - 9/10

Sillage 8/10

Longevity 9/10

The opening of Tobacco is like mixing TF TV with a light splash of Bay Rum. The drydown is less about tobacco and more about sweet, boozy vanilla.

Performance is really good. Projects so others can smell you as you walk by and lasts all day.

Frank Boclet Tobacco is undoubtedly similar to Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, so that much needs to be acknowledged upfront, as Tobacco is often connected to the TF masterpiece seven years its senior.

There's not much not to like in Tobacco, as it's a mix of tobacco, spices (like clove), vanilla, benzoin, and an added note of ginger. There's not quite as much ginger in this as in Phaedon Tabac Rouge, wherein the ginger takes over and for me, ruins the fragrance a bit, but enough in Tobacco to make it somewhat spicier and less sweet (also due to less vanilla) than Tobacco Vanille.

Tobacco's performance is fine but certainly falls well short of Tobacco Vanille, which is a significant detraction, but in general it's a great scent and one I might otherwise buy (more affordably than TV, at $135 for 100ml on Notino) if TV weren't so perfect already.

A fruity synth sweet tobacco-fragrance powerful on cloves, dry fruits (plums) and vanilla. Quite cozy and warm. Ginger provides freshness in the opening before that a cozy seasoned tobacco starts mastering the scene. Dry down is all about seasoned tobacco, smooth vetiver and benzoinic/vanillic dry fruits. In the same Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille's league Franck Boclet Tobacco is a juice for a modern bacchanalian cultured dandy fellow lurking around for cozy jazz clubs and intellectual salons.
