A Dirty but Sweet Tobacco
I believe it’s the apricot, saffron and lily of the valley that sets this tobacco fragrance apart from the crowd. It’s dirty, sweet, animalic and beautiful. A gorgeous leather-tobacco; blended in a very different way. I can smell the cigar and sweet pipe tobacco. This fragrance is sweet from the amber and tonka bean; and smoky at the same time. The dry down is incredible and I highly recommend. 9/10 for me. I’m happy to add this to my collection. Great for winter, fall and evening.

Confusing name
At least because no tobacco is listed in the fragrance pyramid.
Nevertheless Rasasi knows to produce a smell with Tobacco Blaze which comes across relatively dark and dry and reminds a little bit of tobacco.
The fragrance opens with a very citrusy and fresh neroli, and is also accompanied by another fruity note, probably apricot.

The magic of the top note doesn't last too long and other notes are quickly added, which take out the freshness more and more, so that the impression of the fragrance changes and one can already perceive clearly earthy patchouli, as well as sparingly used leather and of course oud in the foreground. At times it reminds me of the Ambergris Showers, but this one is the how shall I say? "derbste" of the series.
Where La Yuqawam is most accessible due to its reputation with other fragrances of this genre, the nose is already more demanding in Tobacco Blaze. Here above all earthy patchouli, woody amber and the oud play the leading role, here one can speak at best of attenuations of coumarin and apricot, which still bring in a light sweetness. The opening of the fragrance is of course the bang, and thus TB moves directly to place 2 of the La Yuqawam series, Ambergris Showers is the last one. Unfortunately both of them don't quite come close to the original
All three scents have a very good radiation, but I have the feeling that Tobacco Blaze, as well as Ambergris Showers lose their sillage after a short time and change to a relatively strong skin scent, unlike the original LY, which you can still clearly perceive after hours, although there are rumours of reformulations :-(.

Conclusion:
A well made Oriental that offers niche quality at a lower price and has also been made accessible to Westerners. In a blind test you would probably think of Tom Ford and co.
The light note of apricot runs through the entire fragrance and gives it a slightly sweet note. I probably wouldn't buy it, but I'm quite happy to have received a surprisingly wise bottling. My special thanks for this to SchnüFFleRR!

You have to like apricot
Yes, it really is. That's all it is. The End.
A bit more detailed, whereby I must honestly admit that this Rasasi could be reduced to that: Tobacco Blaze clearly follows the general craft of the La Yuqawam series, because the structure and the way it is designed is similar to the other two fragrances. Put simply: LY Pour Homme minus raspberry plus apricot. --> Voila!
And that's the big question here: do I like apricot or not? It is not an apricot in the normal sense of the word, but rather a very ripe apricot, which is very juicy. You have to like it, because of course the flavour decreases, but not within the first hours. In the further course of time the apricot recedes, the leather becomes clearer and later on only has this casual fruity note
I guess that neroli and saffron should stop the apricot They don't seriously do that, but still add a spicy note to the apricot.
In the end, you have to like leather plus fruit, in this case apricot. Still in my eyes the tail light of the three LY scents, although good. The apricot is simply a matter of taste in this extreme form. It's no different with Rasasi's raspberry, which is also more fruity than TL, for example. But while the raspberry is more fruity, the apricot has hints of excessive ripeness.
