Fribourg & Treyer French Carotte is a pleasant blend of botanical and herbaceous aromas with a slightly smoky undertone. There is a pleasant feeling in the nose with a mild tingle. This snuff is light brown in color, medium moist and finely ground. This mixture provides a substantial but not overwhelming nicotine hit. Aromatic without the heavy perfume; sweet but not cloying. Enjoy a pinch today.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.

I remember trying this snuff a decade ago, and at the time I really loved it. Sandalwood and carrots, it was pleasant and relatively mild. Being a dry snuff, it is very easy to take.
I don't know if my tastes have changed completely or what, but I recently got some and really don't care for it much at all. Overly sweet, a bit of an orange candy flavour (if you decided to sniff rasna) plus Mysore sandal talc and toasted tobacco. lots of burning without much nicotine hit, either I am allergic to the fragrance or it's made with lime (if you've ever put gul up your nose thinking it was snuff, it is like that only). At least it clears out my sinuses a bit.
I suppose some people might like it, but I certainly do not. Definitely won't be getting this again, though there are other F&T snuffs that I enjoy quite a lot.
Carottes glacées au miel et aux épices lyonnaise is a classic French plat d’accompagnement traditionally served with a variety of grilled or braised meats. The sweetness of the carrots balances the umami of the meat. Sweet and floral, French Carotte brings the same balance to tobacco. Being both of medium ground and medium moisture, it is quite easy to take. This khaki brown snuff is a wonderful side dish best enjoyed as a part of a whole. Its low nicotine content prevents it from stealing the show. Delicious in accompaniment to a slowly savoured meal, I particularly enjoy it with Sunday Roast.
