Bottom line: if you like Indian incense you'll love this snuff.
Added Yellow Lilly Natural & Perfumed to my last order for research purposes...and for the price, why not? I've thrown more money at a mediocre cigar than for a tin of this snuff, and I'm much more likely to find the snuff satisfying.
Broke the foil on the tin to find a fairly pale, medium moisture snuff with the fine grind that's very familiar from other Indian snuffs. I've noticed that I have zero issues with taking Englishes at this point, having gotten so used to the fine dust of so many of the Indian snuffs. No more coughing or filling my sinuses with fire, just pinch, sniff, and ah.
Scent is deeply linked to memory, and my first round with Yellow Lilly Perfumed brought me back to my late teens and early 20's, when incense was a necessary commodity to my lifestyle choices. There was a particular variety I really enjoyed - Kashmir? Maybe? - and 41 Photo has somehow made it into a snuff. There's no mistaking this for floral. It's got some of the sweet notes of a floral, but there's also a heavy, musky aspect hat stands on its own. In the tin it's almost baby-powdery but hits the nose as altogether different.
The scent was so powerful that I didn't even get to notice the nicotine on the first session, and the scent is one of the most lasting I've come across yet. Round two - in which I was prepared for the boom of perfume - revealed a solid amount of nicotine with the sort of slow burn I get from moderately alkaline snuffs.
It's a great break from menthol and eucalyptus. Not an all-day sort of snuff - the perfume is just too strong - but will probably enjoy a spot on my nightstand to serve as a last trip down memory lane before bed each night.
UPDATE: I removed a star. The scent, while good, is rather one-dimensional. Over the course of the tin it just gets boring. If I needed to break a routine built around scotches and toasts this may serve such a purpose. However there are too many other distracting scents out there.
I only took away one star because the flour is sneaky. It seems rather timid until you take one sniff too many and your eyes bulge. Walking that fine line is entertaining on its own.
Kinda of reminiscent of curry but flower like. It is not horrible I may just have to become more accustomed to it as I had to with many other Indian snuff. I think if you have few bucks extra but if not I would save your money. By all means it is not the worst just mediocre.
Yellow Lily Perfumed is wonderful for floral scent lovers. Not overpowering floral yet distinct. Makers of White Elephant they proudly say on the tin and the nicotine is high and eye opening. No menthol on this offering yet there are the natural and menthol choices for those who want it. Bit of burn through the nose that one could take easily. Lingering notes of Yellow Lilly can be up to 20 minutes before another pinch. The grind on this snuff is near toast with some elements of moisture. Lovely snuff that is SPRING BLOOM in the nose. I'd pair it with a nice Lemon-cello and salad with edible flowers to a hearty Thai Stir Fry with some fresh ginger or lemon zest. Floral with touches of musk. Lovely.
This snuff is a pleasant surprise for me. The label says from the makers of White Elephant, and yes indeed. It does have some of the same qualities of W.E., though to me, its nicer. HIgh nicotine, dry, very fine grind, and the scent...I think its lily, but I'm not sure. One thing for sure is that it is not an incense type scent. Its floral, and Indian, but like no other scent I have had before. Perhaps a little too fine for beginners, but those who enjoy fine, dry snuffs will find it a refreshing surprise. And one more thing, its a great value. The 20 gram tin is packed solid, and sealed with a plastic cover. Not overpowering, yet satisfying in nicotine, I could see this as an all day snuff. The scent lingers for about 15 minutes, and when it fades, it leaves no cloying after-scent. Recommended.
