Playing is my passion. Of course, for a passionate person like me, there are several other passions to mention. And just as the passion for perfume is the youngest of them, I have been indulging in the passion to play intensively and comprehensively since my childhood. I like to play all kinds of parlour games, from games of chance, thinking games and games of skill to various party games and computer games. Even the big gambling at the stock exchange is not strange to me. Particularly I would like to emphasize from the many beloved game variants Skat, Doppelkopf, Schafskopf, chess, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan and Settlers online.
For the review of Tobacco Vanilla by Tom Ford, one of the most famous and at the same time one of my favorite fragrances, I would like to get opinions from my environment, especially from not perfume affine people. As created for it offered itself on the one hand a regularly taking place skat and double head evening with old friends, as well as on the other hand a large play of the settlers of Catan with many extensions in the circle of the family
So I have me in each case shortly before the start of the two "aroma evenings" properly eingedieselt, quiet also a splash more for the senses, after all, there was also good and plenty to drink. In the course of the game evenings, sometimes spontaneously, now and then also on demand, a smorgasbord of opinions and impressions poured into the rounds. "That smells strong / reminds of Christmas / like spice cookies / no, definitely plum puree / that's clove and cinnamon / yes, of course, they're in the puree / definitely mulled wine somehow / the stuff is sweet / warm and pleasant, nonsense, you're drinking too much / very spicy / like a tobacco pipe and flavored / yes, vanilla tobacco like in the old days, really good / tobacco with plums / for the kitchen quite nice / maybe when it's really cold outside / better outdoors / fiercely clovey and long annoying / you have to like / very dark and aromatic / in the past was more tobacco / fine vanilla, no pudding / pleasantly sweet, also fruity sweet / intense the smell and long / noble / soft / also honey-sweet / dominant / obtrusive / strong "
I try times the feelings of the settlers and the Skatbrüder to the perfume something to order and to bring with my own view in harmony. The immediately present, cinnamony clove in Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanilla no one can avoid. It provides the anchor point of the scent from the start. As the alcohol dissipates, hints of mulled wine also appear right away, but they quickly dry down to Christmas spice cookies, very spicy, strong and aromatic. Fruity, above all plummy, also flashes out quite quickly. Very clear, distinctive and dense, like small and larger bubbles on the still simmering must pot. With its cooling, this sweet-aromatic plum jam note withdraws to a clear background noise and forms with the remaining dried fruits the deliciously fragrant base, on which the other notes unfold well.
The tobacco lets wait, perhaps also because his great appearance in a perfume Tobacco vanilla is expected?! In the course of the first hour, dark, very aromatic and sweetish tobacco notes release from the vesenkung, very pleasant and flavored pipe tobacco not unlike. Well perceptible, spicy, warm, very appealing and long lasting, without further development, which is good for a great fragrance, but also without own dominance. That is too little for the really great tobacco appearance and also a pity. Whining at a high level yes, but tobacco is still a little better.
The vanilla comes to light only more cautiously, but clearly takes over the leadership towards the long end. Also dark, in addition warm, comforting and cozy, it softens the spice softly and brings in new aromatic facets. Sweetness is there from the start, getting a little stronger as the fragrance progresses, but is always appetizing, never soggy, more honeyed. Tree sap, tonka bean and cocoa form no identifiable smells and go very pleasantly in the aromatic notes and the sweetness.
Tobacco Vanilla is an excellent, strong, dense spice scent with dominant cinnamon-y clove, plummy musk notes, dark aromatic tobacco and dark vanilla, accompanied by a dry, enticing fruit sweetness. The scent lasts sometimes 8-10 hours and is good to wear with appropriately adjusted dosage. Gladly in cooler times, gladly outside, but especially whenever you feel like it!
Thank you for the proven attention!
