    The only time my wife commented on the smell of my pipe, she said it smelled like rotten eggs when I blew the dottle out. So I took that as a hint and cleaned it good.

    But today, upon lighting my pipe, filled with what I ALWAYS smoke (Carter Hall), she said it smelled like Mac and cheese.

    What's some funny or odd things people have told you about your room note?

    Oh, what do women know anyway about room notes?! These are the people who put potpourri in their drawers and hang linen outside to make it smell fresher. We guys are used to smelling burnt sawdust cutting lumber for carpentry, used motor oil, or the stench of unclogging a sewer pipe so that family can use the John.

    Didi, whenever a woman tells you your pipe smells like macaroni and cheese, that means that all of her cycles are in perfect balance /at that moment/ and that is when you hit her up for that extra-special favor you've been wanting to ask for but were too afraid to ask!

    And serpent-bearer, I would ask her HOW she knows what a burnt toad smells like! Hmmm? I happen to like my toads a little crispy.

    I guess I'm lucky in that I am divorced, but aro or english alike, frankly, I've never smelled any of my pipes that returning later to the room after a bowl, didn't smell pretty damned good to me.

    Master Po: No! It is being able to hear!

    After a beat, the exact words through my pipe-clenching teeth, was, "And how the f#ยข% would you know how that smells?"

    After enjoying a huge bowl of Burley Flake #1 my wife said the room smelled like old man farts. So, I guess the Burley wasn't fooling anyone.

    Lol cosmic.

    Toobfreak, she actually right after that, told me that when I receive this batch of estate pipes to clean, that I can then start carving my own, and she wants to help! So you were spot on, with that comment about the cycles being in perfect balance. I kind of thought she would be mad that I bought them.

    My teenage kids say that Chatham Manor (Carter Hall) smells like caramel corn or cotton candy.

    Years ago my wife was an unfiltered camel smoker, so she's vaccinated against room notes, but she did comment three times on the pleasant scent of Peretti's Thanksgiving Dinner, a seasonal blend generously sent to me by lasttango. She also made one or two affirmative comments on Iwan Ries Three Star Blue, which is a good tobacco forward aromatic. Since I often smoke non-aros, I have to admit, I haven't ever gotten any room note compliments on any of those that I remember.

    My wife has told me that some of the English blends I smoke smell like dirty jock straps. I'm still trying to figure out how she knows that.

    "THAT" must be worse than the smell of an anus of a rotting coyote festering in the broiling sun because, each time I fire up Nightcap, swmbo looks over and says, "Oh, you're smoking THAT again."

    I'm not sure what happened, other than I'm dumb. It was supposed to say, "My wife........."

    They need to invent a spray that when it combines in the air with something you don't like, cig smoke, pipe, etc., the two combine to smell like something great! That would solve a lot of problems.

    Had some family over one night for dinner. Afterwards I sat in my easy chair and lit up a strong Latakia blend. A minute or two later my 8-year old grandson said, "who tootied?"

    Potpurri? I thought she was hiding a bag of chips from me. That explains a lot.

    I was smoking an English mixture in college, and my roommate always complained that it smelled like farts. I knew I had hit upon something good there, because it would disguise the odor when I felt the need to pass some gas.

    There was no comment. My wife just started hurriedly opening windows and doors to the outside.

    While smoking Brazilian Araparica Castanho rope, SWMBO asked if I was smoking Durian which smells like month old sweat socks & jock strap in a garbage dump.

    There's no way the outdoors smelled better than your pipe!
