Sort of like Fahrenheit with tobacco instead of the "gasoline note."
I found two descriptions of this scent online, the first being, "A sophisticated combination of spice and musk, Vermeil Double Black is a sensual, masculine fragrance. It is ideal for evening wear. Building upon a rich note of earthy tobacco, this cologne has a strong smoky undertone." The other one said this scent, "...features fruity top notes of black currant, mandarin orange and bergamot laced with galbanum. Heart notes of freesia and lily of the valley incorporate floralcy while violet leaf adds a subtle herbal accord. The cologne is grounded with earthy base notes of cedar, oakmoss, patchouli and musk."

I definitely get tobacco (earthy/dry) and a kind of "dirty" citrus, along with the violet leaf. It lasts a few hours with strength and then it's mostly a dry tobacco-dominant scent at considerably less strength (with the citrus and violet leaf still present). I don't get anything "synthetic" here (like iso e super), nor do I get lavender, but the "smoky undertone" described is not present either, unless they are classifying the tobacco note as such. Overall, an excellent "super cheapo," but clearly not for the young crowd, simpler and less rich/complex as compared to vintage Fahrenheit, but a nice one for those who know what they want. Not sure why "spice and musk" are mentioned, though there could be a little of each. I do get some lily of the valley but the galbanum and freesia are likely subsumed by other, stronger notes. Longevity is at least good. The sprayer puts out a fine mist so you'll likely need to spray more than usual.
