George Sand was a limited edition, I think from 2004. It's probably the rarest fragrance I own.

Oops, sorry, I meant the FATE MAN. I heard of George Sand. I had most of the MPG line over the years... some I liked, some I hated. Never one that really just went POW. Centaur was like a cat pissing on a box of powdered jello. Racine was like a cat pissing on cat piss. parfum d'habit was ok... but it got really bad reactions from those around me. More on that later.

huh, I only own 3 and one of them is Racine. I always smelled it as a citrusy vetiver, never got any cat pee associations. I do wear pamplelune with plenty of sprays, so that could be an indicator

Today is L'Eau d'Hiver. This sticks VERY close to my skin; I can barely detect it. At the prices people ask for FM scents in this country, I could not see myself buying this.

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 good, alas longevity is poor

Michael Kors Michael for Men- can't escape the synthetic notes, drydown not as good as Boss

 

Still to try:

Aramis Havana

Mugler Pure Havane

Margiela Jazz Club

L Artisan Navigateur?

 

 

What are your favorite tobacco scents?

It's not a "grand" scent in the Guerlain or parfum tradition, for sure. Instead it's a very nice gentlemanly classic chypre great for work/meetings and professional settings. I definitely wouldn't wear it to an exciting event... but then again I wouldn't really wear Vega or Tabac Blond to a conservative conference meeting. wink.gif

Unfortunately I don't know what it's worth outside the USA. IIRC it goes for about $75 here for a full bottle at the store, and typically you can get a partial bottle in the $25-50 range depending on box and such.

Maybe $1.50-$2 per ml including shipping? I'm thinking what I might have been willing to pay for a 10ml decant shipped. $15- $20 USD would probably be about right.

Santa Maria Novella Tabacco Toscano
Carolina Herrera Herrera for Men
Yosh Sombre Negra - not classified as a tobacco scent but it smells just like fine cigarette rolling tobacco.

Pre-shower: Ungaro II. A fresher, more citrusy Jicky.
SOTD: Tom of Finland. A warm spicy, ambery suede. One of my best compliment getters.

Today is a beautiful example of our San Francisco Indian Summer, so I wore Granville - a lovely eau de cologne with a pine needle skeleton.

Roja Dove Creation-E - a cognac/tobacco mix...more cognac centered...but still a lot of tobacco...and fantastic in general

Thanks Rach; that will be a good guide for negotiation. smile.gif

Wearing Journey Man today. WRT Pete's query about tobacco scents, this is supposed to be one, but to me it smells a lot cleaner and fresher than a typical tobacco scent.. There is a note in there called cypriol oil which I'm not familiar with; that may be what I'm smelling.
