Nice write up Marc. I'm also very fond of the tobacco scent and appreciate your thoughts.SOTD 14-Apr

Post: A&E Tobacco Road
Forewarning, I'm crap with describing and picking up on scents...
On a bit of a tobacco kick at the moment, I've enjoyed all the tobacco scents I've tried amongst them being Cognac & Cuban, Full Measure of Man, and the more subtle Novelist. Sadly the Mrs can't stomach the more in your face scents so that kicked out C&C (it was the strength on this one not the scent itself) and FMOM but she loved The Novelist. So I've gone down the slightly more toned down route picking up Haverford, Vanille de Tabac and this Tobacco Road.
This one for me sits somewhere between Haverford (a little closer to this) and The Novelist in terms of tobacco pungency. Now I know that word has negative connotations, but I'm using it to differentiate between the likes of FMOM where you're nigh on snorting a tobacco pouch to the other end of the spectrum where you get the subtle waft of the scent on the breeze such as Novelist.
This one is an out and out winner for me, the soap base is very good, easy lather with very good slickness. But with my water, for the most part, I can get a decent enough lather out of a brick. So where this wins me over is the scent, especially from the splash, absolutely stunning and rounds it off nicely. I can't speak to longevity yet but it's been about an hour and it's still hanging in there very well. I'm kicking myself that I didn't pick up the EDP at the same time.
Sorry for the ramble and hope everyone had a grand day!
I do want to make one suggestion and that's to try Dulci Tobacco from Wholly Kaw. It's flippin fantastic! Definitely in your wheel house.
Of the tobacco scented software you've used, would you say that this A&E is your favorite?
