first: i hope "clementines" is actually the right word for what in german is "klementinen" or "mandarinen".
i hate clementines. i like oranges, but somehgow clementines just hit something nasty in my sensory system. not good.
BUT then came toque st. clements. apparently it is modeölled after some kind of fruit liquor? i could probably not be talked into trying that, as ireally dislike fruit liquors. that is one of the reasons st. clements was the last snuff i tried among the prize snuffs Roderick sent me (thanks again).
what have i been missing! it is plain great. a bit more dry than i usually care for, but such is the imperial way of things and being an admirer of things british (miniature wargaming and marmalade and englkish breakfast and british tea melanges come to mind) i can adjust to that. scent from the tin is dusty with a hint of oranges and something more citrus like - i will call it "lemony". i take it in small pinches, as it is so dry.
now in the nose is where things are decided. and this is also where st. clements shines most brightly. an incredibly fresh scent of citrus like oranges, with maybe just a touch more sweetness making it more clementine-like. in between oranges and clements i would say. the scent stays for a while and then makes room for more tobbacco-scgent and for a more earthy, still orange like note. no candy detected.
so, get yourself some st. clements. soon.
