The Scent Of Addictive Elegance

There’s something utterly addictive about the crisp, clean smell of tobacco leaves. It’s always sensual and smoky, with scents that range from sweet to earthy, depending on the concoction. On top of that, you might also detect an almost hay-like scent, along with slight tinges of tea, dried fruit, honey, leather, and chocolate.

The note of tobacco is terrific on its own, but when combined with certain notes, it becomes even more so. Sweeter gourmands are always a good match for tobacco, as are woody notes like sandalwood, cedar, and amber. Tobacco fragrance is also particularly well suited to fresher compositions. These would be your typical white floral mixtures, made up of the likes of ylang-ylang, lavender, and roses. Tobacco’s dark presence compels these delicate flowers into submission, obedient to its powerful scent.

Does tobacco just smell like cigarettes?

It’s common for people to automatically assume that they don’t like tobacco, simply because of its less-than-stellar reputation. But in reality, the use of tobacco in perfume is a whole other story entirely. The fragrant characteristics of tobacco in perfumery are a welcome contrast to the suffocating smoke it usually produces. Since it hasn’t been smoked, it doesn’t give off its typical ashtray smell. Instead, it’s something much sweeter and more comforting, originating from tobacco absolute. So rest assured: catching a whiff of it in a bottle of perfume certainly beats the smells of a seedy, smoke-filled bar.

The Most Popular Tobacco Perfumes

Looking for something new to spruce up your scent collection? Take a look at these popular tobacco scents, all of which are perfect for the season ahead.

Among the most popular tobacco perfumes is Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille Eau de Parfum. It’s immediately obvious how much tobacco and vanilla are in this scent. A wonderful thing, no doubt – but it’s the perfect balance of these two notes that makes this scent truly remarkable. Overall, an opulent, warm scent that’s absolutely perfect for winter. Plus, it’s not every day that you get a mainstream tobacco perfume as good on women as it is on men. Then there’s Maison Margiela’s Replica Jazz Club Eau de Toilette, a tobacco fragrance inspired by the smells wafting through Brooklyn’s jazz clubs. Starting bright and zesty with citrus and pepper, this perfume slowly transitions to the warmth of neroli oil, rum, and vanilla, culminating in a sweet tobacco note. You may also want to check out Le Labo’s Santal 33. But beware: if you wear this, don’t be surprised if you get stopped on the street, in a cab, at the restaurant – literally anywhere. It’s just that attention-grabbing. Smoky, floral, and sexy at the same time, this unisex cult fave opens with violets and finishes with a comforting base of sandalwood, leather, and everyone’s favorite tobacco.
