I've become a fan of these perfumed and mentholated Indian black snuffs. All seem to be subtle variations of the same theme. Therefore there's one for the individual preference. With Motia, I get a moist snuff, with mild tasting tobacco, that has the scent of damp linen, unlit incense and of course menthol. Motia to me, seems to have a bit more menthol than some. Nicotine is strong, and the overall effect is lasting. If you get the 8gm, decant it into a bigger container. Motia seems to improve once loosened up, and aired out a bit.
First impression: Jazmin. A touch of camphor, and patchouli I think. Burn a little but don't bother. Very fragant. Very moist but easy to take. Recomended.
I first tried this Indian black in the 8g tub. The main note then was of lime,so imagine my surprise when I tried the 30g tin. The main note of this snuff when fresh is cinnamon. It is also slightly mentholated but not overwhelmingly so. You can expect this snuff to change its profile as it ages in contact with air as the cinnamon note is lost. No matter though as I found both thoroughly enjoyable.
If you have tried other dark floral snuffs from India,than this one will be a pleasant surprise. It seems perfumey at first, but it immediately calms into a camphor tobacco smell. It is strooooooong. Boy does it have a lot of camphor. Perhaps a small hint of patchouli as well. I'm the type to shovel mound after mound of snuff in,but this one I only seem to need two pinches per nostril. As far as being a more subtle of the traditional Indian dark snuffs, it's about as close as you can get to a schmalzler. I give it a solid 9/10.
Nag champa? Patchouli? Musk? Definitely incense-y. Maybe a little floral hint, rose? Just a smidgen of camphor? I dont think im too good at identifying particular scents, i mostly notice the overall ambience. And this i like, but i like my nag champa and other good indian or eastern incense. Lingers a while too, which is nice. I like doing a hit of a snuff that lingers and taking a walk and get distracted and notice like 10 minutes later that im still smelling it. Not too strong of a nic hit here and not too much of a burn. Slightly moist and very fine.
