Scents and longevity

Ive been wondering about different snuff scents and the longevity. What makes certain snuff scents last longer than others? I've noticed that similar scents between different manufacturers have a different longevity.

*Edit- to clarify, I meant the longevity in the nose.


  • Interesting question--So do you mean longevity in the nose or longevity storing in 10g/25g tins and/or longer storage in mason jars?  For me--in the nose-- the longest for me so far have been Toque rose, and USA whiskey/honey, and Molens pepermunt...For me the fruit flavors i have tried tend to lose something but that's because i don't get thru the 10g tins fast enough/opening too much....i am still a relative newbie though
  • Sorry for ambiguity. I meant the longevity of the scent in my nose.
  • i like certain snuffs because they last long and dislike some because they last too long. i love toque rose and it stays in the nose for a long time. dholakia black is the opposite, i wish it would go away sooner. i still like scent of  dholakia black though. 
  • Oil is the secret. Snuff that been oiled holds the scent longest.. I think Dholakia rose chocolate holds the record. I personally find it cloying.

  • @basement_shaman thanks for that tidbit.
    I took some 6 photo kaliash before bed and I could still smell it when I woke up.

    Some blends I wish would stay a bit longer.
  • I think @basement_shaman is right. The oil in german and indian snuffs fixes a scent better so they seem to last longer. Although the sheer amount of scent in snuffs like most of the F&T range can achieve the same effect. This is why I don't get along with indian snuffs or heavy scented snuffs. If the scent (other than base tobacco) sticks around for more than a minute or so I am not a fan.
  • @Psicko I love Six photo Black snuff for there decongestant qualities. First thing or last of the evening or if I get blocked up.  Not something I would use all day. I employ the Whites Toasts & Scotchs to fit that bill.   

    @SandwhichIsles I dilute those F&T scented snuff 1:10 ratio with Whites, Toasts or Scotches/ I don't believe they were intended to use straight. I could be wrong.

  • @basement_shaman I used to follow the same practice as I agree that f&t highly scented snuffs were likely meant to be diluted. But I've gotten to a point where my tins have run their course and I have not reordered them. I keep toque original, viking dark, toque BB and a medicated of some type on hand in bulk and that's all I need in my life, except I might add a bulk toast to that list soon. I also order a one-off tin rarely but invariably find that it's not necessary.

    @SandwhichIsles it was fun chasing the latest and greatest while it lasted. And it is great when you can just get back to enjoying the basics and narrow down to a fist full . My taste change with season so I have my hoard to sort threw and when I get bored I mix a few together and have my own unique snuff to enjoy. I know what I like and my blending skills keep growing.
