I have a tobacco fixation recently.    Jeke Slumberhouse- smoky rich cigar, still my absolute favourite, followed closely by TF Tobacco Oud- sourish dirty tobacco backed up with a hint of oud, preferably layered with TF Tobacco Vanille- which is too sweet on its own, for me Keiko Mecheri Oliban- very uniquely well done, but a bit weak, still trying this out.   The non-niche ones I have tried: Boss Number One- synthetic top notes, but the drydown is surprisingly...

Perhaps the reason is to obscure stains and other general signs of poor housekeeping?
Took on L'Incandescent's suggestion today- SOTD vintage Chanel No. 19. Worked out better than I thought.
With respect, I think the comment in bold is hyperbolic.  It also depends on whether you like the fit of MJB. What if you dont? I specifically named PS Byard and Zegna because it is a standard cut with same specs which one can try instore for sizing. The PS petrol blue and navy are almost impossible to find online because they are way too popular.

Then magically, the oud starts to peep out behind the grapefruit saffron notes. The transition from grapefruit to saffron to oud is just really unique. Very well done Mr Duchafour.
