My wife especially loves the smell of MacBaren’s Vanilla Flake, Rattray’s Exotic Orange and Cult Blood Red Moon. It’s too bad I’m usually smoking Margate or Black House, which she doesn’t mind the smell of either, but prefers the aforementioned three.
My wife loves the smell of FVF (unsmoked) - she always notes that the smell reminds her of growing up with her Grandfather who is a pipe and cigar smoker. As far as blends she enjoys when lit - she's been fond of C&D's King Cake and has even tried it. She hates the smell of all latakia/oriental lit or unlit.
My wife really likes the smell of Lane 1Q and Boswell's Majestic 586. She just says I smell like smoke after smoking the majority of my English blends, but she does actually like the smell from Maltese Falcon. The Country Squire Second Breakfast is winner as well.
My wife really loves Molto Dolce, more correct is that she loves the way it makes my beard smell.
But, the whole house seems to enjoy me smoking a straight Virginia, some VaPers, as long as they aren't too cigar-y. Penzance and GLP's Ashbury get a thumbs up for being very incense-y in aroma. But, really, I smoke whatever I want at this point. Once every blue moon my wife will tell me something or other is burning her eyes, and I'll open a window... but keep smoking. She is really the best ever. I am really lucky. When we first met, she was an extremist tobacco-nazi. Her father had died of lung cancer. It took patience, but she was worth waiting for. Now, she can join me at a pipe show and talk tobaccos with the best of them. But, she has no interest at all in actually smoking a pipe, herself.
My wife seems to comment favorably on tobacco-forward aromatics I smoke like Iwan Ries Three Star Blue and Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic, though occasionally she's liked a non-aromatic, probably a Va/Per now and then. When she smoked, as a newspaper woman in NYC, she smoked Camels and Galois (sp?).
