    While I have some experience and appreciation for good tobaccos, I am fairly new to smoking a pipe...

    My lady... she was all for me smoking a pipe... I mean, she was downright enthusiastic... saying things like "you look sexy with that pipe..." and "of course you need a meerschaum."

    I know... I am lucky...

    ...but, here's the rub...

    She wants to relive that "good smelling" pipe tobacco she remembers her grandpa smoked...

    In other words... fellas... I need some suggestions for tobaccos that smell like candy bars, fruits, candy etc...

    I typically like stronger tobaccos with background "notes"

    Now I need some suggestions for full on flavor... so when it burns, she feels that the room smells better with me smoking a pipe.

    Thanks, LT

    The only tobacco Mrs. Cortez (aka. Shoe Lady) ever complimented was Lane's MV1000.
    I think McClelland's Bulk Avenue Blend MC1000 is a clone.

    Why not email Russ Ouellette at Hearth & Home and let him put together a sampler package of his best selling aromatics? russo@pipesandcigars.com or phone: 1-800-494-9144

    Lane Ltd's 1-Q, for sure. With a little bit of research, I have determined that this is what my dad smoked when I was a kid. Hubby has complemented the room note when I've smoked it around him. It's a mild and pleasant smoke, with the classic "pipe smoke" room note.

    If the tobacco has CHOCOLATE in the name, then surely you bought it for ME!

    Lane Limited's 1Q. The last comment I had on it in public was, "It smells like roasted marshmellows.". Ontop of the room note it tastes really good as well. The closest win win for smoker and observer.

    I had a similar situation and I must have tried 15 aromatics. The clear winner for room note was:

    Newminster Blackberry Brandy

    It also tastes really good and is inexpensive. A lot of people rave about Boswell's Berry Cobbler. To me, it smells great in the bag and tastes fine, but the room note wasn't exceptional, and the next day the room note was not good.

    My favorite aro for the combination of room note and most of all taste is Pipworks and Wilke's Rumcake. Pricey, but worth every penny.

    herbinedave might be correct. If you're looking for a blend that reminds her of her grandfather those might be good places to start. I know a lot of grandpa's used to only smoke the OTCs. From my time in the online pipe community it doesn't seem like artisan blends like GL Pease's and English blends really hit big until sometime in the last fifteen to twenty years if that. Even today 90% of pipe tobacco sold is aromatic. Also, a good place to try and get her memories stirred because they're so affordable.

    If you're looking for a smorgasbord of aromatics because you actually want to get more into aromatic blends and want to sample a bunch, sure -- go with Cortezattic's suggestion and contact Russ Ouelette @ P&C to help you put a Sampler together. P&C's sampler is a choice of six 2-ounce baggies for $33. Order a few other items and a $100 order ships free.

    If, like me, you prefer and will be smoking non-aromatics most of the time, just get some Lane's 1Q (the only aromtaic I stock). OK, 1Q is mild but I like the flavors and you'll get lots of compliments on the room note of 1Q. Most on line vendors sell 1Q; if you live or work near a decent B&M/tobacconist, they likely have Lane's 1Q in bulk, or they have it under another name, just ask.

    The "danger" there is she may decide to smoke it herself. It's what I am smoking right now.

    My kids favorites are Boswell Christmas Cookie, Rasberry Cream, Pennsylvania Dutch Treat and Berry Cobbler. I am not a big aro smoker but I do enjoy those on occasion.

    Anyone have any experience with Gawith's Firedance Flake? This one struck me as a possible win/win for room note vs. strength and smoking satisfaction.

    I tried Firedance flake. It was not my cup of tea. To fruity/floral like?

    Mac Baren seven seas royal is one my wife likes me to smoke. When I opened the tin she said," WOW, it smells like date candy! I want to take a bite of it!"

    I tried the Firedance and literally almost puked. It tasted like puke. I have never been put off by a blend that much in all my years. I am going to try it again when I get my nerve up. The tin has been aging for a few months so I am hoping that will help it some. It was such a weird taste, it wasn't the lakelend essence that put me off, but the casing. I tried it because it has some pretty good reviews.

    I second the Dan Blue Note- that stuff has a fabulous room note that is difficult to pin down to any one topping. If you want something that actually smokes well too, look at McCranie's Red Ribbon- heavenly Virginia that smells as good as it tastes.

    Try some CAO Moontrance, I know it sounds crazy, but that one is fantastic. It is a very nice burbon/vanilla flavor with nothing but good straight VA tobacco in it. I am a VA fan, so this is definatley my aromatic of choice. It smells really great too.

    Remember,though, when push comes to shove, you have to enjoy the taste. If your lady loves the smell, but you don't like it, don't smoke it.

    (And I agree with the guys who mention some of the old blends - that's probably what her grandpa smoked. Maybe you can find out.)

    CAO Moontrance is great and if you like it try Dan Tobacco's Blue Note. Essentially the same thing but I thought Blue Note was a little better.

    I second Autumn Evening, my wife likes that as well; no real strength though.

    For the kick you can blend an aro with a virginia to take it further and still retain most of the smell good affects; or go the lakeland route if you're into that genre.

    W.O. Larsen Signature Vintage Mixture. I would smoke this stuff if it did not have a topping because the tobacco itself is very satisfying. Add the aromatic topping of caramel/pineapple and look out, you have one fine smelling good tasting and rather satisfying tobacco. The aroma is of toffee, caramel. pineapple and a bit of vanilla. I get tons of compliments when smoking this tobacco and I enjoy a full flavoured tobacco while getting those compliments. Also try Amphora Regular and Amphora Full Aroma.

    I went through this when I started a pipe; my wife's father smoked a cherry and she "loved" it. I have tried many cherry blends (and I don't usually care for cherry), including all the OTCs I could get a hold of, and they all "stink" now according to her. I did find a cherry liquor aro at the local B&M they call Black Cordial and it does smell and taste good: not too heavy on the cherry smell or taste but definitely there.

    Altadis/Sutliff makes two bulk aromatics that smell quite nice in the room and don't taste bad, if a little mild to my taste, these being Casanova and Queen Anne's Revenge. The name on that second blend seems to annoy some, if they don't know that it is a rum aromatic and the name is that of Blackbeard's flagship, so there's the rum and pirate tie-in. Although, just taken on the face of it, it sounds like Queen Anne insisted on pipe tobacco with a good room note.

    Captain Black regular/Carter Hall 50/50. Great taste, great room note. One of those cosmic things where the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts.

    NOt that you need any more suggestions. My wife LOVES the smells of English blends more then aromatics. Here are some thoughts (and of course while my wife likes these... I enjoy smoking these)

    English
    Dunhill: Early Morning Pipe
    Match: Early Morning Pipe
    Drew Estate: Meat Pie (her fav)
    Hearth and Home (H&H): Larry's Blend (another fav)

    Cant go wrong with some Cult Blood Red Moon.

    Try Peterson's Sweet Killarney. It's not a great smoke to me personally, but my wife loves the chocolate aroma.

    The wife is all for my pipe habit..as long as i stay outside. She did like the smell of macbarren vanilla cream, which is a pretty good full flavored smoke. I have also gotten a few "that smells good" from PA and macbarren golden extra. I dont smoke aros anymore and my brother thought HH blackhouse smelt like dog crap...so there is that.

    Out of all of my tobaccos, aromatic or not, the only compliment my wife has ever given me in regards to the Aroma was when I was smoking FVF.

    St. Bruno gets me a lot of compliments from strangers and I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again, chicks dig the room note of Old Joe Krantz! It blew my mind but I’ve been enthusiastically complimented on it on several different occasions from several different women. My wife hates it because of that.

    There are as many answers to the OP as there are aromatic blends.
    My own recommendation: Trout Stream

    If you need to add some oomph, add some Five Brothers or one of the G&H ropes

    I need some suggestions for tobaccos that smell like candy bars, fruits, candy etc...

    Go out and buy a dozen of the worst flavors of "Yankee Candle." They have stuff like pumpkin spice, unmarked van candy, and hair salon. Light them all at once. Let the house really soak in that stuff, then flee for a few hours to your local B&M. When you get back, she will be much happier about regular tobacco smoke.

    Room note???? Fergedddaboudddddit! Unless you're chumming the air for chicks, who cares what others smell? It's all about the taste— your taste.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    In my experience, there are some tobaccos with amazing room note.

    I love Conniston Cut Plug ("Unscented") but can only smoke it from one cob because it ghosts a pipe like an ancient burial ground. However, it leaves the room smelling like geranium incense.

    I had a tin of Nat Sherman 509 that was too sauced for me, but when at 1:3 in a mixture with other Burleys, it leaves the room pleasantly scented. Lane BLWB does the same thing, which means that you can have real tobacco with a bit of the sauce.

    Generally, Prince Albert generates praise.

    The mixture of Burley Flake #1 and Royal Yacht that I smoke leaves a slight scent of honey in the air. Then again, it must be smoked fairly slowly and gently to avoid the cigarette ash smell.

    Mixture 79 has a similar perfume-incense hint to it, although it smells more like tobacco than the Conniston Cut Plug.

    Holy N E C R O necro thread.

    Mac Baren Navy Flake.
    Smells so good.

    I think so. Also, this stuff with 5 years on it is in my top 5 tobaccos of all time. Win/Win.

    Tinderbox Tacoma makes this stuff called "Waffle House" I smoke it from time to time and it is awesome.

    I was on the Gambler 500 earlier this month and got my brother to smoke after 10 years off cigs by giving him this and a new cob. There would be times I wasn't smoking and we'd be parked and I'd walk around my truck and and he'd be over by his smoking it. I'd smell the smoke and I would think, "holy shit, that is delicious!" and immediately light a fresh bowl myself. I smoked more that weekend than I may have ever smoked in my life. At least 20 bowls of the stuff. Never bit, didn't wear out my mouth, and I never got nic'd out.
