Santa Maria Novella / Tabacco Toscano
The beginning is quite dry, sharp… skin, beautiful tobacco, musk and probably birch also contributes to it. The fragrance is really unique. Later the fragrance becomes softer - it becomes more amber, sweet and vanilla. Then you can feel a combination of tobacco with the addition of spices (it reminds me of the smell of smoking pipe) and vanilla. It is not (thank goodness) a sweet pot (I unfortunately do not digest Tom Ford with his weird, feminine and refined tobacco vanilla - but I understand that many people may like it). This fragrance for me is more exquisite, complex and with a greater male component. Besides, it naturally paints pictures in front of my eyes. Its disadvantage is, unfortunately, its durability - 3 to max. 5 hours on my body (5 ... is really very close to the body). In my opinion, it is worth knowing and having. Even though it is not a tiring, sweet, bisexual TOM FORD-tobacco vanille spike massacre (which is a huge advantage for me).
