I got a trial of this one, intending to wear it myself. I like tobacco, I adore tonka, vanilla, balsam.... wood type notes are usually okay. 

So far it’s not working out though. When I first put a little dab on, I liked it. An hour or so later I thought maybe this was something I HAD to have, so I slathered it on. 

Then it took a wrong turn. I think it was maybe the mahogany??  Eventually I will revisit it though.

Sadly, I'm not getting the vanilla tobacco at all, at least not yet.  This is pretty much balsam with just a touch of the mahogany on me, and that's not really a thing I'm into - balsam and I do not get along too well.  So hopefully in a few months I'll get a more well-rounded impression.


But if you enjoy woody scents I would recommend giving this a try.

I really like this one but not sure I love it yet. Love the tonka, vanilla and balsam big time. The tobacco is the type that doesn’t bug me and is just smooth and good but the mahogany is strong enough to be giving me pause. But not to long dry down yet and I feel like this is one I will need to test multiple times.  It is really warm and sexy regardless. I know I’d love it on the right man if not myself.

Reading the notes, I thought for sure I would want a full bottle of this, but it's a little too masculine, even for me. It should wear very well on guys, though. As of now, I'm  happy with my trial vial, and might test it with one of the sugared layerables to see if that lightens it up a bit.


Becca Rustica is a very deep, masculine scent. Wet, it is all tobacco,  becoming more woody as it dries. There's also a hint of something that is subtly spicy, but not quite spices.


This is rich and full, with some sweetness from the tobacco and Tonka. This smells like how old, lacquered wood looks. The beginning is more of an evening or winter fragrance, heavy, but not overbearing.  As it dries down more, it stars to lighten a smidgen. 


After 30 minutes,  it lightens considerably. It goes from this big, bold fragrance that's almost trying to intimidate you to a much more close wearing one that's more intimate and letting you in. The sweetness comes out more about 45 minutes in. Then, after an hour, it gets really smooth.


I feel like this scent tells a story, of initially trying to impress, then slowly opening up. I think it could be a good date night scent, sort of mirroring that journey. (Also, because, y'know, it smells good. 😁 And the phero doesn't hurt,  either.) So go out there, guys, and rustica some bacca.
