    What's the most aromatic tobacco by Sam Gawith or Gawith Hoggarth in terms of room note? I've pretty much got them all on hand, but I'm wondering which has the most fragrance when lingering in the air and likely to please the ladies? I smoke alone so I am unsure. Perhaps Top Black Cherry, although I don't pick up anything in the room note. It seems like most flakes with Virginias don't translate, like Ennerdale and such. What's your experience?

    My wife is quite tolerant of any pipe smoke EXCEPT those with the Lakeland essence. So it depends on the Olfactory Epithelium of the lady in question

    After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.

    I've gotten a lot of compliments about Kendal Gold Banana and Rich Dark Honeydew.

    Hmm most of the Kendal shag blends smell like a farm, the flavored ones like a fruit farm. Rich Dark Honeydew, that's interesting, it's not a blend that has a particularly strong tin note, but perhaps the honey scent blends with the tobacco well in the smoke. I once smelled someone smoking Rum Flake and it had a strong chocolatey/vanilla kind of smell but I think maybe it was whatever he was smoking before that like 1Q or some shit

    Samuel Gawith - Palace Gate, not an often talked about arro but very good.

    G & H - all the American style loose (in England) arros, Coofee, Coconut etc etc.

    Lakelands slightly different (not your 'normal' sweet arro smell) but most have a good aroma - rum flake, mellow mahogany are just 2.

    What's the most aromatic tobacco by Sam Gawith or Gawith Hoggarth in terms of room note?

    I'm going with Conniston Cut Plug (Unscented) which leaves the room smelling incense with almost no tobacco. The smell persists for about a week. It is the most successful aromatic, in terms of room note, that I have ever encountered, and a great tobacco and favorite as well, when I can get past the dreaded Lakeland Essence.

    I'm another vote for Errendale. I left an open tin in my truck and it ghosted the whol truck. I had to spray the upholstery down with Malathion, as it was the only thing that would get rid of the smell. Now, my truck smells like poisonous bug-killing chemicals, but at least it makes me gag slightly less than the Errendale did.

    I'm not a GH aromatic smoker, but I gotta ask, do the aromatics live up to their pipe-ghosting reputation. Like, if you smoke a few bowls in a favored briar, is it scented for the century? Longer? If you designate a cob, will it ghost pipes next to it on the rack? Will the neighbors across the street begin to smell a little like grandma's bathmat?

    Oops. Duplicate post. Or maybe it's ghosting!

    For the Lakelands I've smoked, the ghosting is the most intense of anything I have tried. However, it seems to mostly go away after a few strong blends of other sorts and a little time. I wouldn't smoke one in your pipe dedicated to Virginia flakes however.

    For Ennerdale, it has the strongest tin note but does the smell actually translate to the smoke? I smoked some near my grandmother once and she just said it smelled sweet. Ha! I have Coniston scented plug so I'll give that a try. Is the rose is Grasmere smelled in the smoke?

    With the Coniston, yes, it has a rosewater and incense type smell, a very complex scent. If you remember the 1980s "Old Spice" cologne, it's a lot like that.

    I have the scented Bosun plug but the room note doesn't seem too aromatic. No Gawith blends seem to have a room note that might impress ladies. Even the American style blends like Cherry & Vanilla or American Delight. The room note seems dull to my senses compared. I only smoke Lakelands have them all. I'm trying to pick something that smells nice
