As I try more snuffs I'm learning that most of the really floral snuffs are way to perfumy... this is one of the few that I feel almost gets it right. It allows the muskier more natural fermented tobacco smell and a liquor scent carry flowers, without making them this lingering perfume.
One of my favorite snuffs, personally. Easy to take, perfumed with flowers (rose and violet I think) but not too strong, pretty good nic hit. Very complex scent. Love it!
The rose smell is very dominate but not in a bad way. I loved the texture and moisture, minimal burn but decent nicotine delivery.
When I was a child my grandmother's house always smelled of lilacs and her treats were wonderfully vintage lemon drops and violet pastilles from Les Anis de Flavigny. This snuff triggers memories of visits to Grand-maman's on the Plateau Mont-Royal and basking in her radiance. I particularly enjoyed Bordeaux's citrusy-floral notes after a meal of roast duck as a means of clearing the pallet of the residual fats as one would do with a trou-Normand.
This is a medium high moisture, medium grind, brown powder. It smells exactly like my bar of violet scented shaving soap, with an underlying lemon blossom scent. I have not yet detected any musk. The tobacco itself comes out toward the end. Nicotine content is just slightly lower than medium, but with a large pinch rolled from the fingers up the nose with your head tilted back, so that it falls directly into the sinus, is quite satisfying. It has a sharp burn to it if sniffed too harshly, which you want for a sinus clearing effect. Definitely one for the regular rotation.
