Jkath, I love the idea of "humidor" perfume, I would snap that up in an instant. The smokey, warm scent of good tobacco (pipe/cigar) is one of my very favourite smells of all time.

I love the scent of fresh laundry that has been dried on the line, that might make a neat perfume. Or what about chcocolate? Would it make the wearer to hungry having to smell that all day?

When I was a in middle school and juniour high I would sometimes put a dab of vanilla extract on my wrists, because there was no money for real perfume. It actually smelt pretty, and I recall being asked a few times, what scent I was wearing

piccolina, i have always loved the smell of a pipe, since my uncles smoked them at family parties when i was young.
and cigars are an extremely guilty pleasure. a great dinner, exquisite dessert, a snifter and a cuban in a comfortable chair is nearly nirvana.
unfortunately, for health and stink reasons, i don't smoke much anymore.

i have a chacom pipe that i've broken out again recently, and enjoy on special occasions. now i need to find some good vanilla or black cherry tobacco.

oh, I would buy up any scent or candle that smelled like a pipe. I smell the aroma of cherry vanilla pipe tobacco, and have to look around in hopes of catching a glimpse of my beloved grandpa...

My first memorable whifts of the aromatic delight which is good pipe tobacco came from a very elderly neighbour that lived on our street when I was a little girl. He was a wonderful, slighlty eccentric old (like about 85) French gentleman who would sit out on his porch (they lived about 5 houses down from us) and smoke his pipe. It's woodsy, vanilla scent drifting down the street to my young nose. I was hooked instantly.

Much like yourself Bucky, I would list the odd, excellent cigar as one of my secret indulgences, though the number has dwindled due to my health as well. Chacom pipes are lovely, what type do you have? I don't smoke a pipe really, but I like a slight curve in pipes (not to a comical Sherlock Holmes level) that some of the Charcom pipes have. As well all of the Charcoms have that fantastic aged briar wood which is so elegant.

That is really good idea Shannon, I would love a candle that smelt of sweet tobacco as well - if I ever encounter one I will let you know

Cigars = grandpas. Nuff said.

There is a candle scent that is black cherry sweet tobacco!
It's used by many candle makers - do a google search and you'll find it!

There's nothing like two fingers of Lagavulin 16-year and a maduro LaGloria Cubana wavell. That's a smell that gets on your clothes and in your hair, lingers and never fails to please.

I prefer mine on the porch of the condo we like to rent in Kiawah Island, SC, but I'll take one on my back porch in the foothills of Tennessee just as happily.
