Long-lasting vanilla laced with tobacco
I must admit, I've never bought Tobacco Vanille because though I love the smell, I don't love that it doesn't last more than 2 hrs on my skin, and it always smelled more like a faintly smokey vanilla rather than what I wanted it to be.
Parfums de Marly Herod is not just similar, I would say it's better. For one thing, it lasts all day, and for another thing the value for money is far superior because you're getting more than double the volume for the same price.
In terms of smell I can't say that they're one and the same - the vanilla in Herod is sweetened a touch by the green qualities to this tobacco, and the dry-down is much more smoked. On my skin, the vanilla runs not-quite gourmand but still very inviting, and really it is difficult to not continue smelling my wrists throughout the day. What you end up with is something more complex and fresh, and I am addicted to this.
