Reviews of This is not a Pipe by Demeter Fragrance Library

A pretty straight-forward and realistic pipe tobacco. Thought not the most complex undertaking, fans of the genre should certainly give it a try.

Demeter "This is not a Pipe" -

Difficult not to like this one if you are a tobacco enthusiast. A one not samba of mildly sweet pipe tobacco straight out of the pouch. Lasts for a few hours exactly as expected. Light 'em up!

3 stars.

Demeter is essentially a soliflore house that doesn't get enough credit for its adventurous and clever accord creations.

This Is Not a Pipe is a stunningly realistic evocation of its source material, more of an accord than a full-bodied perfume (though, in that respect, it's hardly different than most niche): an unsmoked tin of pipe tobacco, lightly sweetened with a burnt sugar undertone but decidedly more woody than gourmand.

This Magritte-themed composition is a pipe fragrance indeed. Initially very chemical, it turns out to be pleasant, soft and with a fruity flavour that blends in surprisingly seamlessly and is not overly intrusive.

The tobacco is smooth, with touches of dark Virginia and not harsh at all - no Perique or Latakia can be traced in this blend.

There is not much development to be found here. The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent and the longevity seven hours on my skin.

Nice for autumn. 3/5.

Nice fragrance. It really is a good representation of what it tries to represent. The smell is quite linear but that's not a bad thing in this case. You can use this for layering to create Tobacco Vanille!

Very very rich and just plain decadence of cherry cavendish pipe tobacco. Just imagine the best pipe tobacco and stick your nose in the bag,that's what u get with this Demeter. Love it. If you love frags like Tom Ford/Tobacco Vanille or Kilian Back to Black. This is for you :-)

Once you get past the aldehydic blast this fragrance is all the pleasures of pipe tobacco without the yellowing of the drapes. Makes me thirsty for a lovely cognac and a long evening with a good book.
