I recently ordered Bordeaux. Its fine quality tobacco...beautifully packaged tin....but for my taste its way too perfumed. I've found the only floral scents I like are rose, lavendar and violet. Bordeaux is way over the top for my liking. However, I'm intrigued by F&T's Macouba and Santo Domingo. Has anyone tried Da Kralingse's Macouba and how does it differ from F&T's?

  • DK's Macouba is really amazing. Coarse and moist. The rose is definetly there, but there also a cognac note, both in perfect balance. Its probaly my favorite rose snuff. My only fault is the grind, It could be a little finer. I send mine through the coffe grinder and it comes out nice.
  • Thanx. I might give it a whirl...Have you tried Santo Domingo or Old Paris?
  • I have a tin of F&T patchouli. It's very strongly perfumed, but I like it. I use it once in a while, especially when I'm trying to avoid smells, like cat farts.
  • old paris is amazing. It's very one of a kind. It has a sweet sour scent that actualy ages constantily deepening and getting richer as it goes. It's hard to discribe but it certainily is not floral and it's certainily not over the top. Macouba is a favorite of mine then again I like bordeaux a lot. I imagine if you don't like bordeaux you'll probably not like macouba.
  • I find Prince's Special to be very, very similar to Bordeaux.

    Santo Domingo is wonderful, and though it's perfumed it's very different from, say, French Carotte (which smells like a department store perfume counter, though I still like it sometimes).
  • I agree with bob, that you will probably not like the Macouba if you do not like Bordeaux. However, the DeKralingse Macuba is not as highly perfumed and does not have the musk scent, so go for that one.
    On the other hand, you may want to put your Bordeaux away for a month or two (close tightly) and try it again in the future. Many snufftakers, myself included, have found new favorite snuffs by doing this.
  • although heavily floral the santo domingo has an awesome cedar scent that might be a good way to break into the more perfumed snuffs.
  • how would you describe F&T. Macuouba? It says it has rose in it. I love rose....what are your thoughts...Please describe Santo Domingo as well....
  • rose attar which is the main scent which I think you'd love though it's still very perfume like Bordeaux. More rosed based then rose. Sandalwood is the second main scent, which that might determine if you would like it or not. The Santo Domingo is also very typical freyborg and treyer but with a cedar scent.
  • most have that geranium scent with some tweak.
  • Old Paris. Priceless. They say it is scented with Arack, but the Arack I am familiar with is an anise-flavored alcohol similar to Ouzo or Absinthe. Date wine and Attar of Roses seems more likely. Tried Santo Domingo and Prince's and liked them, but found that I rarely used them. Santo Domingo seems to be cedar, sandalwood, geranium oil and maybe violets. My favorite floral is Wilson's Lavender.
  • If you like rose, you really should give Toque Rose a try. I'm a big fan of rose scented snuffs, and Toque's version is probably my favorite.
  • I strongly recommend RR Mills Maccoboy if you like rose--it's very easy to snuff and has a nice tobacco base to compliment the rose scent. I also like Gawith Hoggarth's "English Rose", though it's more perfume-y than Maccoboy.
  • The F&T Macouba is a lot less Rose-y than the De Kralingse version. In my opinion, the man in the windmill makes the best version of this classic. It's the closest thing you can get to having Turkish Delight up your nose.
  • OK....I thought Turkish Delight was the forbidden fruit of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrope. Someone please tell me what is Turkish Delight?
  • it's a horrible candy that proves how sad the life of the children in Narnia really really are. Cause it is a candy that no child has ever been that excited about it. It's a soft candy covered in confectioners sugar and that is the best part of it. Really medicore stuff.
  • I've always rather liked turkish delight myself. It comes in different flavors, but the most relevant here is the traditional rose and lemon flavored variety. As bob said, it is a soft, kind of jelly like, candy that is dusted with confectioner's sugar. It's a traditional middle eastern delicacy that became popular in England during the 19th century.
  • Turkish delight is manna from heaven.
  • Yeah Turkish Delight is great but you do really need to get the genuine stuff from the Middle East. Some of the stuff produced in the West and going by that name is truly disgusting.
  • I always thought Turkish Delight was made-up shit. I'm gonna find me some!
  • yeah tell me more about the real deal. Cause the turkish delight I have had is an abuse of the word delight and implies things about turkish people that I know are not true.
  • it's a horrible candy that proves how sad the life of the children in Narnia really really are. Cause it is a candy that no child has ever been that excited about it. It's a soft candy covered in confectioners sugar and that is the best part of it. Really medicore stuff.
    @bob I laughed so hard at this I actually shed a tear!

    =))
  • It was a traumatic experience for me as child to try the stuff. Double whammy of narnia and the name being delight. Much humor comes from trauma if you're lucky. Probably the only reason I can come of as functionaly crazy.
  • I always thought Turkish Delight was made-up shit. I'm gonna find me some!
    Whole foods should have it probably in the imports section.
  • This reminds me of watching Doctor Who as a kid and wanting Jelly Babies, because he always had them. Someone brought some back from England for me, and man they were pretty nasty.
  • I'm loving F&T old Paris at the moment. Just arrived and can't get enough....I've just ordered F&T Dr J R Justice, anybody tried it at all? Need a review as it was an impulse buy.
  • go slow with the old paris. It's scent changes noticably yet only slightily over time. It's an interesting snuff for sure.
  • @bob thanks for the heads up. I'm relatively new to snuffing so tend to get a bit carried away! :)
  • Seems to me the Old Paris is the least scented F & T, other than the HDT, and probably the most soothing.
  • OP still in my top five list
