Smokey Tobacco Scents, Are They Just For Men? Not at all!! While it might just be the right note for a masculine blend, tobacco absolute will add depth and exotic intrigue to floral essential oils like Jasmine, Tuberose and Ylang Ylang. It balances out the intense femininity of the floral.
Tobacco absolutes have been the perfumer’s secret note for centuries and now you can make it yours.
Traditionally, tobacco is used in men’s colognes, but recently its been added to products in other industries. For men it gives a subtle aroma without smelling too feminine. And for a woman's blend it gives the edge often looked for in a unique perfume.
Tobacco absolute is a very thick product. You only need a drop or two in a blend and it will change the entire essence of the blend.
While scents for men and women are typically the ones to benefit from the exotic aroma of Tobacco Absolute, home décor accessories have found their way into the mix.
Everything from candles to potpourri gives this scent a new playground to find friends.
While walking the floor of a trade show, I had the opportunity to experience tobacco absolute, vanilla and sandalwood in a luxurious blend. It was being shown in candles, potpourri and fragrance sticks.
I watched as the men walking the show enjoyed the display and scent of the blend. Their reactions were interesting. The display was set up like the living space of a single man, tan sofa’s and dark wood furniture. This space was magnificent but it was the aroma of the space that captured everyone’s attention.
It was a site to behold. These were men that had come to the show with the wives and tagged along. I know because I asked them.
The space was so inviting that the women left them and came back to get them when they’d finished with this part of the show. You’d think it was a smoking parlor. The men were enjoying the blend without firing up one cigar, yet the aroma was not that of a heavy smoke. It was smooth and inviting.
Tobacco absolute and black pepper are two products in the essential oil arena that are used in blends and give them an interesting twist on the aromas that they produce.
The next time you’re in the mood for trying a new twist on making scents or buying perfumes, give tobacco absolute a try.
Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
