    Default Most Noticeable/Prominent Tobacco Note

    Hi Basenoters. I'm a big fan of tobacco scents and own a few. My question is, out of the three listed below, which do you notice has the strongest, most noticeable, prominent tobacco note throughout the duration of the fragrance? Or if there is one stronger than the three listed please let me know.

    1) Aramis Tobacco Reserve
    2) Demeter Tobacco
    3) Demeter This is Not a Pipe

    I'm NOT asking which you like best, but which has the strongest/most noticeable/prominent tobacco note throughout the duration of the fragrance (from initial spray to drydown).

    Thank you kindly!

    Of the three, Demeter Pipe Tobacco is the one that has the clearest tobacco note.

    This Is Not a Pipe has more spices (suggesting a tobacco blend), and Aramis Tobacco Reserve has a good tobacco note but ends up being more about tonka, herbs, oakmoss, and spices.

    I used to have it, but I felt it had a bit too much spices which made it more difficult for me to detect a significant tobacco note.

    I used to own Pipe Tobacco, but it faded away too quickly. Bummer.

    + 1

    Also, with Havana the composition doesn’t give you a clear, singled out tobacco note. The blending is designed to give you more of an overall “impression” with the spices / dry tobacco / cedarwood creating an aura of the fragrance all around you. Often you will notice that is smells different to people around you than it does to the wearer. A + fragrance in my book

    Tobacco Oud is the way to go IMO.

    Thanks so much guys!

    Here's an update: Bought a bottle of Demeter's This is Not a Pipe and awaiting delivery- should be sometime this week since it's through UPS, not usps (thankfully)! Ordered a sample of TF Tobacco Oud, not sure when it'll arrive (via usps).
