While many participants here at snuffhouse.org disparage non-tobacco snuffs, many snuff users occasionally want aroma and the insuflation sensation without imbibing nicotine. Several sugar-based snuff analogs exist, but Wilson's of Sharrow's Lemon Ice is something a bit different from the menthol/mint varieties so prevalent in the non-tobacco market.
The first aroma that touches the nose is a very fresh, pronounced lemon. This isn't a Lemon Pledge (TM furniture polish scent; rather, it's a fresh lemon peel fragrance.
The "ice" is more a sensation than an aroma. An adequate but not overpowering menthol coolness follows the lemon fragrance.
Aromas do not persist very long in the nose. All traces of lemon disappear after only a few brief minutes, although the cooling sensation persists for up to ten minutes, depending upon how much one has imbibed.
As is the case with all the sugar snuffs I've tried, overdoing this snuff will lead to clogged sinuses and frequent nose-blowing, although the drip is more than pleasant.
If this snuff analog has one strong point, it's the very fresh, very natural lemon flavor. If you want to try a sugar snuff, I highly recommend this one.)
