Disappointment
My first comment on Parfumo goes to Mystery Tobacco. Many thanks to Yirmiiki for the small filling!

When I smelled it on the test strip, I was blown away. Great expectations have built up, because I thought I had found a new Beastmode perfume. My expectations were then but when testing on the skin absolutely disappointed.

Olfactory in the same drawer as PdM Carlisle (2015), Mancera Red Tobacco (2017) and Argos Triumph of Bacchus (2019).
Which of the above MT is most similar to, I can not say now, because the others are not available to me here right now. Since both Carlisle and MT were created by Quentin Bisch, however, one can assume that Carlisle was the godfather here.

Fruity opening, then develops spicy-sweet-oriental and becomes woody towards the end. Top and heart notes very nice, base also very pleasant but unspectacular.

Unfortunately, I am not someone who can perceive every single ingredient. I thought the woody Dd was due to sandalwood, but according to the ingredients it should be guaiac wood. Contrary to some other opinions, I am but sure to smell out tobacco.

Overall a good fragrance, however, the pyramid, on my skin, lived through within an hour and offers a subterranean performance of about 30 minutes. Sillage accordingly, durability afterwards as Skinscent with 7-8h neat. In my opinion, unisex with masculine tendency. I have tested the fragrance at temperatures around 20 ° C, maybe the performance will be better in winter, hope dies last.

Conclusion: smells good in any case, but in the performance unfortunately grottiges PL ratio. A too much tamed interpretation of Carlisle, which can not be recommended at this price.

Shallow tobacco
I was able to blind order a bottle through Best Secret and had mixed feelings about the scent at first. It smells shallow on me like tobacco and clings to the skin over time. As it progresses, it becomes soft and sweet. On me, the scent lasts about six to seven hours and the sillage is pleasant and unexpectedly subtle. A plus point for me is the spray head, which doses the liquid perfectly and like a light breeze, sprays this on the skin. For cold autumn / winter days, this fragrance is certainly very suitable. I look forward to testing the other perfumes of the Confidential collection

Strong tobacco!
I hadn't heard much about Carolina Herrera's exclusive line yet, except that, as the name suggests, it's rare and expensive. In contrast to the "F*ck-me-Pumps-Linie" (Too good to be bad, etc.), the bottles look good and noble and are heavy in the hand, each one dyed to match the fragrance (golden brown for Tobacco).
Since I love tobacco scents and also call a few masculine my own, I could not help but let Herrera's unisex tobacco come under my nose as the first of this luxury series.
The first impression almost knocked me over: super strong, slightly sweet tobacco (much less sweet than Kilian, Tom Ford or Pure Havane) immediately got in my nose and I had to "smell away". But already after a few seconds the slight tabackige scratchiness had diminished and the smell came into the course. That's when he started to please me very much. I noticed a flashing Cointreau note that gave the fragrance a gourmand, slightly bittersweet touch, but also some sophistication.
But he also has a dark side - a dark smokiness, a bit of an ashtray, a bit of a noble gentlemen's club, a bit of the Middle East.
I don't mean to say that I can make out oud, but he has something of the Absolus d'Orient of Guerlain, which I still have very vividly in olfactory memory. It lasts very well and long, and does not change much even after hours, so that one can look forward to 6-8 hours of little sweet, little fruity, but very intense tobacco with a minimal oriental touch. And for a long time afterwards a warm tone remains, also very beautiful!
