Fribourgh & Treyer Princes is a seemingly less refined offering with no obvious perfume but rather a more marsh-like scent that is reminiscent of a hay fields after the rain. The sensation in the nose is without any unpleasantness. The rustic nature of this snuff reveals a rich dark color, sticky moist and chunky texture that offer the most extraordinary rush of nicotine than one would expect from a much dryer powder. Another tome to add to your English snuff library. Enjoy a pinch today.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.

In A Movable Feast, Ford Maddox Ford tells Ernest Hemingway that: “A gentleman will always cut a cad.” According to the makers of Fribourg &Treyer, the recipe for Princes dates all the way back to the Regency period. A likely concoction for Prinny himself, it is bracing like a slap across the face by a pair of bespoke gloves. Black like a used espresso puck, this high moisture snuff leaves the throat clear of any unpleasant residue and has no burn or fever to speak of. Its uniquely clean flavouring is a blend of cat urine and civet that is refreshingly pleasant. Martial, the high nicotine content drills your senses to full attention like a Regimental Sergeant Major.
Mr Souter's review was dead on. I have a pinch to add. Princes took a bit of getting used to. It is stronger and less obviously scented than my other snuffs.
On the first few tastes I did not like it, but persisted based on Fribourg's reputation.
I am glad I did. There seems to be a bit of citrus in it but its primary taste is of a fine pipe tobacco.
If one were used to drinking aperitifs and cordials and was presented with a fine, old single malt scotch the scotch would take some getting used to. Princes reminds me of such a scotch.
What I like most about is that before bedtime I wash my nose (using a 10cc syringe but sans needle) and "yoga" inhale it through my nose and out my mouth. When the detritus of the days snuffing is clear all that remains is the smoky taste of Princes. I find this very pleasant and relax with it while reading.
Just prior to sleep I take a pinch of a floral which blends well with the smokiness of the Princes.
Macouba and Jasmine are still my favorites but I will order more Princes when the time to reorder comes.
Very dark and heavy, pleasent light vinegar scent. Very rich scents to this one. People say its not an all dayer, but i have been happily taking this throughout the day with great enjoyment. Nicotine is medium, good tingles in nose. Little bit messy asit is dark in colour. Enjoy.
Complete dissapointment. I get nothing that was described by the other reviews for the princes . What I do have is a dark tamed down macouba with the same citronella candle scent. What I got says princes but the review of the princes special is very similar to what I received and because of the princes special review I opted for the princes instead because I don't care for the citronella mosquito repellent smell. So pissed.
As a first review I chose this particular product because of its unique characteristics.
The 2 reviews I read here touch on the earthiness, although neither makes mention of the ammonia sensation I get from it. Reading elsewhere, I believe this may dissipate if left open.
The grind and moisture do in fact make it an easy snuff to take, if one can value a beginner's opinion. Having shared with coworkers, some really take to this, others do not. Those that don't seem to agree that it is the ammonia sensation. Personally, I would buy this again.
