The aroma of tobacco in perfume may leave some people slightly perplexed, especially if it automatically conjures up images of a darkened smoking area in your local pub! However, when it comes to tobacco notes in a fragrance, it’s a whole different story!
The tobacco leaf is somewhat sweet with an earthy touch, yet it provides a layer of comfort, warmth and a sense of mystery that works so well in robust, rich perfumes. Although most commonly found in the winter fragrance territory, tobacco is actually one of the most versatile notes around and perfectly complements a whole range of other aromas and fragrance families.
Now we know what this complex and sensual note has to offer, let’s look at the top 10 fragrances available at The Perfume Shop, with notes of tobacco you can indulge in today.
1. Bad by Diesel
A head-turning scent that is sure to encourage people to stop and ask, ‘what are you wearing’ Bad by Diesel is every bit seductive and alluring as you’d expect from a fragrance that oozes bad boy vibes! Spicy and floral top notes lead the way before it dries down into a sophisticated and woodsy aroma of tobacco, patchouli and caviar.
2. The One by Dolce & Gabbana
Demonstrating perfectly that notes of tobacco work in harmony with florals and Oriental notes, The One by Dolce & Gabbana is a creation of elegance with sparkling top notes, a spicy heart and traces of masculinity in the base. Not unlike a well-tailored suit, this scent is packed with quiet confidence, charm and quality!
3. Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme by Gucci
Tobacco forward scents often have a robust character to them which are best suited to the cooler months (or when you really want to make an impression), but Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme by Gucci sits of the more reserved side. Ideally suited to everyday wear, it has a crisp freshness to it as a woody/ chypre hybrid, but the tobacco and jasmine in the heart delivers on the confidence and charm you’d want with a masculine, modern fragrance.
4. Armani Eau De Nuit by Armani
Want to give the world of tobacco infused scents a go but are not sure where to start? We’d strongly suggest Armani Eau De Nuit by Armani. It’s soft and elegant with an undeniable edge while being charming and seductive yet subdued. It radiates masculinity without being overpowering with intense pink pepper, powdery iris and sensual tobacco. Armani Eau De Nuit is not to be overlooked, and trust us when we say it’ll be love at first spray!
5. Tom Ford For Men by Tom Ford
From the designer who can do no wrong in our eyes comes Tom Ford for Men by, you guessed it, Tom Ford. Sparkling with notes of energizing citrus at the top, it later delivers a memorable burst of warming notes of ginger and black pepper and prominence of tobacco. What’s not to love?!
6. Polo by Ralph Lauren
Bursting onto the fragrance scene in the late ’70s, Polo by Ralph Lauren pulled out all the stops to ensure it was a scent to be remembered. Powerful, earthy notes lead the way before drawing out a distinctive heart of tobacco and leather to create a timeless creation that’s as adored today as it has ever been!
7. Man Eu Fraiche by Versace
Not all fragrances created with tobacco notes are made to warm you on a winter’s day, as demonstrated by Man Eau Fraiche by Versace! Super light and fresh with a touch of aquatic appeal, you’ll be reaching for this all summer long with its uplifting blend of bright bergamot and sensual cardamom, saffron and tobacco.
8. Spicebomb Infrared by Viktor & Rolf
Inspired by Infrared technology that detects body heat, Spicebomb Infrared by Viktor and Rolf throws together vibrant red berries, red hot spices and a seductive tobacco accord for a captivating experience like no other. Whether worn during summer nights or winter mornings, this irresistible Oriental fragrance burns bright all year round!
