I tend to love pipe tobacco scents in general, but I knew I would like this when Mara told me she was using the maple-y pipe tobacco from SUPER in this one.  AH IT IS SO GOOD!  It does kind of dominate the whole thing in the wet stage, at least on me, although the vanilla is a nice layer underneath.  The musk gives it a nice plush quality, it's like a skin scent but more pronounced.  It is sweet but not gourmand - so don't be scared, guys.  I think it would come off so sexy to anyone who you'd like to get close-up and personal with.  And much like SUPER this one has great sillage and is pretty linear, a good day-into-night or a very LONG night kind of scent.

Fragrances that have maple can be a problem for me.  I love tobacco scents, and vanilla and musk are sure bet friends of mine 🙂
 

So far (I’ve only tested it once) the maple stayed true to a nice maple scent.  Maybe because there are no accompanying gourmand spices is why this maple works for me.  Or maybe it’s the lack of patchouli.  Whatever the reason, this is a maple I can wear.  
 

I’d happily wear this especially in autumn.  It is a cozy delectable scent. I’d be equally happy to smell it on a guy.  Oftentimes unisex scents still play out as “somewhat masculine but not too much so”.  Not this one. This is an anybody fragrance.

I will need to revisit this one after it has recovered from its jet lag. I didn't give it a full week as I love pipe tobacco. (To the point that I tried to pick up pipe smoking at the age of 13. Actual smoking vs the smell was a completely different and disappointing experience. ☠😆)

 My skin really elevated the maple note. To be fair it is a pleasant & enjoyable note, but the tobacco kept floating as the faintest hint in the background. Just teasing my nose...like a withholding little scent tease. I suspect that this is due to travel shock and will give Sweet Leaf a fair shot in a couple days and update my review.

@Eastwood22 - D, since you were asking about this, I don't think there's any resemblance between this and Teacher's Pest.  I did a comparison and TP is vanilla musk with tobacco whereas this one is a straight-up pipe tobacco scent, more along the lines of Adam's Nectar just in terms of the vibe.  If your guy has ever tried SUPER or UN and you've smelled it, then you would recognize a resemblance there as well.

I want to get a FB of this. Now that it’s had a chance to settle it’s becoming more complex.  At first all I really smelled was maple.  And I was relieved the maple was playing nice with my skin.  Today the tobacco and musk are showing up, and it went from a “nice autumn scent” to a “wear it anytime”  fragrance.

Thank you! Very much appreciated. We only had a sniffle of TP and it’s long gone, but I remember it being a cherry tobacco.

@Eastwood22 Cherry tobacco pipe scent is one I used to adore.  I think I’m at the point now that I’d love it again.  My grandad used to smoke a pipe, and I loved him so much!  
 

 But then, as an adult, back when I still lived in the city, there was this majorly creepy guy in my  building who had a thing for me, and he would stand just outside of the building entrance on the parking lot side, smoking  cherry tobacco in his pipe.  He was clearly hanging around waiting for me to come home.  He’d be in the building in a flash upon my arrival, timing it so we could have the lovely opportunity to ride up in the elevator together.  God it was so awful.

 

I was on the fence about this one, as far as getting a fb (I’m going to) due to the maple.  This note is still a little bit more prominent than I’d prefer, but I get the feeling that the longer it ages, the more the tobacco is going to come forward.  I plan to keep that fb for quite a while before breaking the seal….

Isn’t that the way with so many of these? I put on Pearfection yesterday for the first time in a year and it was to die for, it was not that good previously! 
BF just put this on 10 seconds ago, and walked out of the room, causing me to burst out with “whoa, what was that?” Already different than when it first arrived. FB for us as well. 
 

And @Eve, I hate that guy.
