Looking for a Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille alternative? A dupe of Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille Dupe for less than the typical $230 price tag that it’s sold for? No problem I got you covered.

As you know I’m a fond fan of MAC Shadescents Velvet Teddy and it a perfect dupe for Tobacco Vanille but I can do you one even better.

Tobacco Vanille is not my standard fragrance of choice. I don’t love Tom Ford fragrances. They are a bit too deep and rich for my blood. I love gourmands, certain sweet complex florals, and of course, you’re normal round of fruity sweet scents but Tom Ford is truly none of these things. His scents are quite different and unique. I purchased a few of his items at duty-free a year or so ago and suddenly, I became a fan. Why this happened I have no idea as I’ve avoided his fragrances for ages but now I’m a convert and really enjoy some of his stuff.

Tobacco Vanille is one that I hated at first sniff and even felt a little woozy from it. But after wearing it and allowing it time to settle on my skin I realized I really loved it. It starts out as a dirty vanilla but as it dries down it becomes a warm, cozy blend. Since MAC and Tom Ford are sister brands it comes as no great surprise that Velvet Teddy turned into a dupe of sorts for Tobacco Vanille. Velvet Teddy is 1.7 oz in size and $59 but if you want to go a little cheaper and a little larger allow me to introduce you to Reminiscence Paris Tonka Eau de Toilette.

I know, I said EDT! Don’t be scared. I promise the scent has excellent silage and a very good throw for a toilette. You might recognize the Reminiscence Paris name as they are a creator of French costume jewelry and oddly enough fragrance as well. Hey, if Swarozki can do it why not Reminiscence. For me, one of their more iconic releases are the Les Notes Gourmandes. These might be most familiar to you as well since they come in rather cute bottles with little ribbons tied around them. I have all three which I purchased in Paris some years ago because hey, Gourmand lover here!

But let’s get back to Reminiscence Paris Tonka Eau de Toilette which is on my lips at the moment because it is on sale and an idea dupe for those that love Tobacco Vanille. I think the scent is a perfect duplication of Tom Ford’s and at a fraction of the cost as 3.4 oz is $66.50. Gotta love a deal right?

If you’re looking for a dirty vanilla that’s smooth, warm, and cozy you might just love this one and it won’t kill your bank account either.

Reminiscence Paris Tonka Eau de Toilette is available now on sale at

    I hardly wear perfume, let alone Tom Ford (I also find it too heavy for me), but who doesn’t love a good dupe. LOL! I’ll admit, I clicked on the post because I like the stars on the bottle. Haha!

    I totally second that! I always felt it was a bit easier to wear at work and great for layering. If you really like the Tonka, you might find Annick Goutal Nuit et Confidences very similar, but without the tobacco.

      too true not as strong as TF! I have Annick Goutal Nuit et Confidences and I agree, very nice scent and softer, less harsh that Tom Ford’s TV! I like Annick’s scents 😀

    If only I could find a dupe for Tom Ford Neroli Portofino, my life would finally have meaning!!! LOL I do love it, though!!
