I have literally ordered every wax melt available from DW Home (blame the quarantine) and this ties with Sandalwood Myrrh and Soothing Crystal as the best scents. I don't know what real warm tobacco smells like but these wax melts smell amazing. It smells warm but not too sweet or simple. It strikes a balance between masculine and feminine. It makes my place smell warm, inviting, and grown up. I just bought my bestie the candle version and I'm sure she will love it. I might even buy the melts for my good friend because I'm sure ze would love them too! I don't know how anyone could dislike this scent. I have a small space so I caan't speak for throw in big rooms, but it's definitely enough to fill the air in my living/dining/kitchen space. If you like warm, soothing scents you should give this one a try!
