Reviews of Ambre Tabac

Absolute masterpiece. This is a really nice amber and tobacco scent (hence the name) that smells like resinous apple pie with cinnamon and a root-beer style boozy amber. It's so beautiful and has insane sillage and longevity (more than any fragrance I've ever tried). I also get a really boozy and non-cloying vanilla scent which is really similar to Replica Jazz Club. The sweet tobacco with amber combined make a sort of scent approximation to chocolate mixed with cherry (a note I detect that's not listed in the note breakdown). I didn't think I would enjoy this as much as I do since I'm not usually a heavy winter scent affectionado, but I really like this. It is totally unisex as well. Sillage is strong while longevity is also very strong. This is a nice alternative to Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille or Amber Absolute. It just smells really good. It resembles Hermes Ambre Narguile but in my opinion is far, far better than it due to the boozy notes in this and the improved longevity and projection, and in fact Daniel Josier was a student of the perfumer behind Ambre Narguile (Jean-Claude Ellena).

My first try from Daniel Josier, Ambre Tabac is, as the name suggests, primarily a blend of tobacco and amber.

It also involves a vanilla acord that's familiar to most anyone who knows and loves the popular "sweet tobacco" category of fragrances, as I call it. Incense and sandalwood provide further character for this blend. Overall, it's a little spicier in the opening and a little creamier and calmer in the dry down, as one might expect, but it's a reasonably consistent fragrance throughout.

It performs well and is sweet and creamy, as it seems the animalic side of amber does not come out too much in this blend. However, Ambre Tabac reminds me of a couple of noteworthy honeyed tobacco fragrances, specifically, Back to Black By Kilian and Herod by Parfums De Marley, comparisons mostly intended to be complimentary, and while these comparisons don't seem to be commonplace within the online fragcomm, I nonetheless detect the slight redundancy on my skin.

That said, it's an outstanding fragrance, in a similar vein to the abovementioned fragrances, and at a fair price point for strong, niche-quality juice, at $175 for 100ml on the website.
