Reviews of Night Veils : Tobacco Mandarin

The opening is an animalic blend of leather and tobacco. The citrus is barely there. The dry down is buttery amber, dark and woody. This is heavy and rich, very serious stuff.

Smells like Atelier Tobacco Nuit with less tobacco/more incense or even TF Tobacco Oud with more amber.

Very good performance overall with impressive projection and all-day longevity.

Tobacco Mandarin seems like it was designed to be misunderstood, as neither of the things in its name really play a starring role – cue disappointed emojis from people after a sumptuous tobacco lifted by a sweet-tart mandarin note. Nope, not on offer here.
Instead this is a perfume in debt to the spice bazaar legacy of some early Serge Lutens offerings. A bold, somewhat uncompromising charge of cumin – though nowhere near as dirty as in some musky cumin bombs that will here remain nameless – bolstered by lovely smoky incense and an oud note in the dry and peppery style make up its central harmony, one I was surprised to find myself enjoying despite my usual caution around spicy-resinous orientals. Here everything seems to sit right, the cumin integrated in the blend, neither the ambery base nor the oud taking over as is their usual wont, with the smoke drifting like a unifying thread through the whole thing. The background cast of other spices, resins, leathery and tobacco notes provide subtle, quiet support. The sillage reveals a mellow fruitiness, a bit like candied citrus peel, that the wearer might not perceive on their person. In the later stages the woody-smoky theme is much more evident with the spiciness dialed back, but it seems well thought out rather than the more usual by-numbers fallback of so many modern drydowns.
Undoubtedly a perfume for cold weather, but one that provides a welcome warmth rather than a blast furnace.
