Reviews of Cigar Rum

The opening notes of raisins, dried cherry, prunes, Rum absolute with mandarin toned amber is a holiday fruitcake of warm sweet yumminess. All these dried and sweetened fruits are adornments for the tobacco base which is a bitter dried tobacco that stands behind the fruitcake opening. The tobacco is given some backbone with oakwood essence, vetiver and seaweed absolute. Then labdanum base pulls the tobacco back into the mellow opening and as a result you end up with a dried fruit and cigar toned amber scent. Overall this smells very good. It's not too strong like many tobacco scents tend to be - tobacco is a very bold aroma to use in any delicate way, but this ends up feeling delicate and I like that. But the delicate balancing of these dried fruits with tarry basenotes levels the scent out into one pleasant tone organized into the labdanum for a gourmand Amber scent. Cigar Rum is missing some notes if Prin wanted to tell a more exotic story. This scent could be more complex like Parfum d' Empire Wazamba or Frapin 1697. This mild dried fruit amber scent with tobacco seasoning is a nice one as is, but could have been more. 2.5/5.

Cigar Rum seems to be one of the most popular scents in the Strangers Parfumerie stable, probably because the handsome, complex aroma of tobacco absolute never fails to please. This is a good but hardly unique take on tobacco leaf – most of the heavy lifting is done by the tobacco absolute, but there’s a flash of warm, boozy rum up top to dress it up, and it skips over the heavy vanilla or dried fruit stickiness of Tobacco Vanille.

That said, it does nothing special or new above and beyond the real baseline for indie tobacco perfumes, which remains Tabac Aurea by Sonoma Scent Studio. Cigar Rum is also one of the Prin Lomros scents that falls flat in the base – there’s very little there to hold it together once you get past the richness of the tobacco opening. If you’re thinking of investing in an indie tobacco, I’d still go for the best-in-class of Tabac Aurea.
