Tobacco, tobacco has always been associated with masculinity. Strongly aromatic, spicy, sweet, it is preferred by men primarily for the condition it gives, for the way it can be “enjoyed”. From the finest cigarettes, to the elegant or rebellious cigars, to the pipe or the hookah, tobacco has given birth to real passions over time. It seems that women find irresistible men who smell of tobacco, because they give them the feeling of men with a strong character, who know what they want. It is not about the breath that smells strongly of cigarettes in the case of heavy smokers and that does not make a man irresistible but rather repulsive, but it is a fine smell of quality tobacco impregnated discreetly in clothes and skin. That’s sexy and conquering.
Angel Men Pure Havane by Thierry Mugler
Really wonderful tobacco themed scent – very rich smelling with a dry down that becomes comfortable and soothing to my nose as time goes by. A * Men Pure Havane by Mugler is an Oriental Vanilla fragrance for men. A * Men Pure Havane was launched in 2011. The nose behind this fragrance is Jacques Huclier. Top notes are tobacco and white honey; middle notes are vanilla, cocoa and patchouli; Base notes are amber, French laudanum and styrax. This scent drives my woman wild. It’s sweet, masculine, and perfect for Fall or Winter.
There are many flankers in the Thierry Mugler Angel Men line-up, however, of all the fragrances I own in the Mugler lineup (trust me, I own all the flankers) – Angel Men Pure Havane is my most favorite. One of the things that makes it so great is that it has the heart of A* Men, but does away with the overbearing tar notes and introduces a creamy and sweet opening.
The opening begins with a blast of cured tobacco, honey, and tonka bean. During the dry-down, the tongka bean and honey become more prominent which creates a masculine and delicious concoction of scents that is very pleasing to one’s senses.
TOM FORD Tobacco Vanille
This spicy scent, which represents Tom Ford’s passion for London, is reminiscent of the sophisticated, smoky atmosphere of English gentlemen’s clubs. Tobacco Vanille perfume is impregnated with a fragrant oriental note, which, in combination with the opulent essences of tobacco leaves, exudes a spicy and aromatic flavor. The middle note of the perfume reveals the creamy tones of tonka, tobacco flowers, vanilla and cocoa. The thrilling evolution of the perfume ends in an arrangement of dried fruits, intensified by the woody and sweet essences. The duet of top notes that opens the essence is strong, masculine, but also mystical, offering a sensual explosion for the olfactory senses. This duet is given by tobacco leaves and lots of oriental spices. The tobacco leaves offer masculinity and emphasize the first name of the perfume from the beginning, and the spices are feminine, spicy and exciting, offering an enigmatic wave over the dark tobacco leaves smell. These spicy tobacco leaves teleport the wearer to an enigmatic oriental atmosphere, suitable for both men and women. Middle notes are an erotic game between male and female notes. Thus, the bitter-sweet smell of tonka beans is highlighted by the dry smell of leather offered by tobacco flowers. All this bitter essence is beautified by the appearance of the aphrodisiac scent of vanilla powdered with cocoa. These strong contrasts highlighted in the middle notes do nothing but outline the idea of unisex perfume. The base notes are a real feast for the olfactory senses, because the sweet and fragrant smell of candied fruits appears with a special warmth, but this does not last long because a hard and dry wood essence begins to take shape.

Top note is Cognac; middle note is Tobacco; base note is Virginia Cedar. This perfume is the winner of award FiFi Award Fragrance Of The Year Men`s Private Label/Direct Sell 2007.The notes above made me curious how the fragrance would smell. Cognac, tobacco and cedar simply sounded too interesting not to dare a test. Fortunately, it was added that obviously the smell was adjusted.
