Oh, vanilla. Even though the marketed is saturated with vanilla perfumes, you’d think there would be many good ones, right? It never ceases to amaze me just how awful so many “singular note” vanilla fragrances are in this world. How can they keep messing up something as “simple” as vanilla? I wish I had an answer, but I don’t.
Yes, vanilla perfumes are simple but vanilla isn’t simple. Cut a vanilla bean pod and inhale. There’s so much complexity. Sniff a really high quality vanilla extract. It’s complex too. Tihota is one of the few simple vanillas that captures the complexity of vanilla. Tihota is boozy vanilla. It’s like the world’s most luxurious vanilla extract. The perfect balance of sweetness and “booze”. Tihota becomes a realistic vanilla bean pod. It leaves on my skin exactly that smell of when I slice a vanilla bean pod, except with more projection and even more clarity. It’s a perfect balance of balsamic sweetness and tobacco. It gets sweeter and more gourmand. It dries down to the world’s most luxurious vanilla cake…because it used the world’s most luxurious vanilla extract that I mentioned earlier in the review.
Tihota is vanilla. It’s all vanilla. So, if that sounds good to you, then you need to try this. I consider myself a vanilla snob and this vanilla is Vanilla Snob approved! It’s really, really good. Now if you are reading this and you aren’t interested in a vanilla perfume, then you probably don’t need to try this. Tihota is all vanilla, a really good vanilla, but still vanilla. You better like the idea of smelling like vanilla if you are going to wear this one!
Notes listed include vanilla and musk. Launched 2006. PERFUMER – Francis Kurkdjian

Or if you like Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille, L’Artisan Parfumeur Vanilla Absolument, Van Cleef & Arpels Orchidee Vanille, Montale Vanilla Extasy and/or Mona di Orio Les Nombres d’Or Vanille. Tihota is for anyone that wants to smell like vanilla.
