Tobacco Vanille's hippie twin
Lovely new packaging of Tobacco Vanille, apparently... jokes aside, the similarity between the two is terribly clear and strong. If you aren't familiar with either of the two: sweetish spiced tobacco. The only – and frankly negligible – differences I notice are that Tabac Rouge smells somehow more spicy, more Oriental, a bit more dry and with a bit more tonka and beeswax. More sweet too, slightly fruitier. And most of all, with an overall slightly more “natural” evolution. Tobacco Vanille is really “monolithic” and heavily linear, built to assure you a full night of underwear garments dropping at your passage; while Tabac Rouge smells like its hippie twin brother, with some more shades and nuances that come and go, and an evolution making it drier, nuttier and darker as hours pass. But you have really to sit down and do a thorough side by side comparison to get all these differences; other than that, Tabac Rouge is just a solid, perfectly well-made and most of all, way cheaper alternative to Tobacco Vanille.
