b1os, thank you for the links and sorry to make you repost... since the nature of my question was scent-specific and geared at Maquis, I thought it more correct to ask where he was getting it. I did some preliminary searching and saw it was on Beauty Habit with their 3/$15 thing, and was going to do more searching later. In general I patronize Lucky Scent.
As for I Profumi di Firenze, based on my reading, this all-natural bit may be a little trumped-up. Opinion on the subject seems split. I would wager that part of the brew is natural, but not the whole (or most), unlike Testa Maura or others. Also, the folks on BN seemed rather unanimous in their criticism of this line as rather synthetic/drugstore like.
As for tobacco, the more gentle and refined take in Santa Maria Novella's Toscano is my gold standard. Its musky drydown always leaves me nonplussed, but then I like linearity from start to finish.
For a putatively natural tobacco, there is Alt-Insbruck's 66-60, made of Virginia tobacco extract. I find that to be incredibly 1960s-1980s and Teutonic in style, though (very apothecary), and regret buying the bottle on a lark. It is considered an aftershave (I guess in the vein of Trumper's Limes) and only $33, so all is not lost. The scent is very particular, and I'm getting the impression that posters in this thread like their scents particular, so maybe someone will like it. For reasons I don't understand, I get a weird scent-memory of Melville movies and men in raincoats buying bottles of this stuff on business trips to Berlin.
