Because everyone appreciates a beautiful woman.
"Pipe Babes" is not meant in a derogatory way. It is a compliment to any woman to be called a "babe". In our observations, even women check out other women. Did you ever notice that men’s magazines usually have a beautiful woman on the cover? Did you ever notice that women’smagazines also usually have a beautiful woman on the cover? Of course, the men are looking because … uh … we’re men! The women are looking because they are making comparisons, sizing up the competition, and getting ideas for themselves.
We hope you enjoy these lovely ladies smoking pipes.
Attention Ladies! We are seeking models interested in being photographed smoking a pipe. Please see the bottom of the page for more information.
Gabrielle is smoking 2002 G.L. Pease Haddo's Delight that was just opened for this shoot. Her pipe is a Willmer AAA straight grain. We decided to have fun with her hair and make-up doing a retro-pin-up style. The shoot was done at McNulty Lofts in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida by Steven Kovich.
We really enjoy being creative here at PipesMagazine.com. Chelsea came up with the idea of doing a shoot with a Film Noir look to it. She did a great job on hair, make-up and wardrobe. The photographer for the shoot was Joshua Ford, and he did an excellent job with the set and lighting to create a great Film Noir style.
We hope you enjoy viewing the photos as much as we did producing them.
This photo shoot is sponsored by Scandinavian Tobacco Group Lane.
Chelsea is smoking Captain Black Round Taste. This is the new name for what used to be known as Captain Black Light. The word “Light” has been restricted in world markets as a descriptor for tobacco, so all brands are discontinuing the use of Light in their names. It is still the same great pipe tobacco. Lane Limited describes Captain Black Round Taste as “A mellower variant of Captain Black that results in a smooth, mellow and bite-free smoke.” It is a loose cut consisting of “Golden Virginias with a touch of mellow Burleys and a hint of Oriental tobaccos.”

Gabrielle makes her debut as a “Pipe Babe” smoking 11-year old original Bell's Three Nuns. She is looking pretty and sophisticated with her hair pulled back with a smart and fashionable ensemble of a red skirt, white top, and black boots. She is enjoying her tobacco in a Ferndown 3 Bark Paneled Dublin with Silver band and saddle bit.
Chelsea is smoking Captain Black Royal. The Royal version of Captain Black consists of Aromatic Black Cavendish and Gold Cavendish. According to this Captain Black Tobacco Review; “Captain Black Royal is slightly toned-down on the sweetness, great for smoking all day.”
Last weekend was Chelsea's birthday, and she celebrated with some good drinks and smokes. She is smoking Captain Black Cherry pipe tobacco. It is a Cavendish blend with a cherry flavor - “Exceptionally Mild, Delightfully Aromatic”.
This photo shoot makes us both happy and sad. We're happy that this is the most beautiful and elegant shoot ever done by Cynthia for Pipes Magazine. We are sad because it may be the last. She has just graduated college and will soon be starting her career in the film industry. We even had to cancel a new shoot that was to happen this month as it didn't fit Cynthia's schedule.
The pipe Cynthia is smoking is from the Aaron Spelling Estate, and from the personal collection of Pipes Magazine Publisher, Kevin Godbee. It is a 1961 Root Briar in the classic Dublin shape. Kevin has vowed to never clean the bit of this Dunhill again.
Spring has sprung in “Pipe Babe Land”, and we decided to celebrate out in the American Heartland. What better place is there to smoke a Corn Cob Pipe than in the Corn Belt of Iowa? Chelsea is smoking a Missouri Meerschaum Legend Corn Cob Pipe.
Thanks to Rick Newcombe, pipe collector, and author of the book In Search of Pipe Dreams, for loaning us his pipe in the prince shape, which was made in the 1940s or 50s by the famous French department store Hermes. The pipe was not actually made by the department store. They probably commissioned pipes to be made by pipe makers in St. Claude, France that were stamped with the Hermes name. Rick tells us; “I bought this pipe unsmoked years ago at a pipe show from Steve and Roswitha Anderson of S&R Woodcrafts of Ohio.”
Here's an exquisite photo shoot of our sumptuous blonde, blue-eyed Pipe Babe, Violet. She is enjoying smoking G.L. Pease Union Square in her Stanwell Hans Christian Andersen VI Sandblasted Pipe.
