Note: I am finding Andy Tauer Vanilla Flash - Tauerville, in rollerball form, easier, less syrupy, less tobacco, and less arid powderiness, than FM or Chergui.

Fumerie Turque used to be one of my favorite fragrances. I wore it more often years ago and I cannot recall why exactly I stopped. I haven't really gone back because orientals haven't been my category …

I think Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque is simply superb, and I consider it one of my most precious fragrances. Let me state for the record, I am female and I happily wear this masculine scent. I especially enjoy it in warmer months, outdoors and at the beach where the scent can truly blossom. This one takes time to develop so don’t be off put by the initial blast of tar pit if it discourages you. I …Read more

A beautiful smokey spicey oriental, with a kick of my beloved unwashed patchouli; becomes richly decadent, clingy, and sweet on the body...its supposedly unisex...well I certainly would want to get into the pants of a bloke smelling like this!
Lutens fragrances truly represent a high water mark in modern perfumery. I hope he lives to a hundred and ten (SL being a decade + on me ) and I have …

Fumerie Turque immediately reminded me of Shalimar in being a bright incensy oriental. I get the honeyed tobacco, a bit of ash, not sure if I actually get leather. But I do get some kind of fruit, possibly orange, apricot, and several dried fruits. I also get a hint of coconut at times, which could make for a mysterious perfume on a summer's evening. Alas, the ash comes up a bit too much …Read more

Love at first sniff! Sweet tobacco, raisins, and honey against a backdrop of smokey leather. Strong sillage, but not as strong as its similar sister Chergui. Smelling Fumerie Turque compared to Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille makes TV smell like a cheap department store fragrance. If you love the smell of excellent, high quality tobacco, you won't go wrong with Fumerie Turque.

I'm surprised at how heated the discussion can get about Fumerie Turque, but I bought it on sale without having smelt it beforehand...

When I first gave it a sniff I was a bit disappointed, as the various adjectives and descriptions people have given it were quite seductive. At first it made my wrist smell like an incense candle (which I don't mind!), and it has since …

Fumerie Turque was mad love from the first sniff. It's perfect distilled sweet, resinous sticky tobacco, somewhere right between shisha and high quality pipe tobacco. It's lightly spiced and flavored with rum raisins and date resin, and it's gloriously effervescent, and just slightly smoky, like the smell of a pipe that's been used long in the past. It's transcendent in …Read more

Bewitching smoke of a late-night lounge. Smoke and old timber, a little sweetness. Sheer enough to wear on hot summer nights. More dressed-up than Chergui (which is more about hay than tobacco). More relaxed and modern than Habanita. Medium sillage, very good longevity.

This was love at first scent. From the other reviews I have been seeing a lot of 'cigarette, artsy, dark, punk' but this gave me a very different experience. As an Aussie girl who grew up near the bush, this brings back fond childhood memories of lazy summer weekends when there would be backburning taking place. I got memories of cool autumn weather with the sun hanging low and the …Read more

I don't know what I was thinking when I bought this. The strong cigarrette ash note is so prominent in this that it is unwearable. I would trade this for Chergui in a second.
