Review // West Third Brand

I've been a fan of West Third Brand for quite some time. Way back when I lived in Chicago, I had found these scents first at Rudy's Roundup and later at Una Mae's.

The Tobacco 1812 scent from the Smell. Good. Daily. line is my absolutely favorite. Their website describes it as such: Sweet dried tobacco leaf, aromatic spices & rich honey muddled with cocoa, Tonka Bean, tobacco flower and a layer of dried fruit and exotic wood.

People normally give me some shit for being so in love with tobacco scents. I mean, one of my favorite 'designer' fragrances that I wear regularly is Burberry London for Men. It's close but West Third Brand is my preference.

A few months back, I was at a market and one of the vendors was selling items from West Third Brand's Société de Senteur line. I fell in love with the Road Trip scent immediately: White musk, patchouli, and star anise hints of iris, osmanthus layered with sandalwood, vetiver & cedar. I normally try to stay away from patchouli as much as possible, but it's really hard for me to detect in this one. However, sandalwood is my second favorite scent. I would say that Road Trip doesn't last as long for me as Tobacco 1812, but I love it nonetheless.

I think my next purchases are going to be Tall Tales (Amber, violet, clary sage, suede, tobacco, coffee, coco, vanilla) or Marché de Tabac (tobacco, anise, orange, cedar, sandalwood, leather, clove, and musk).

You can find where West Third Brand is stocked in your city here. Go try 'em out and tell me which is your favorite!
