Fribourg & Treyer Bordeaux is a highly fragrant mixture that evokes a time when wigs, walking sticks, snuff boxes and handkerchiefs were de rigeur. The floral bouquet commingles with the savory and spicy notes to create this unique mixture. Steadfast to tradition, this celebrated concoction is truly the essence of English snuff taking. Enjoy a pinch today.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
This is not the first Fribourg & Treyer snuff I've purchased nor will it be the last. The quality is of course on par with all their superior sniffs perfect moisture content, fine to medium grind a glorious medium brown with an above medium nicotine content. I will admit I was initially put off be the overwhelming geranium scent that blasted out of the tin upon first opening. I do enjoy floral suffs but the monochrome scent of geranium wouldn't be a conscious choice for me. But I gave it a airing out period and found myself returning again and again to this lovely snuff. Front and back drip with occasional nicotine overload. But overall fantastic stuff. Recommended!
When I was a child my grandmother's house always smelled of lilacs and her treats were wonderfully vintage lemon drops and violet pastilles from Les Anis de Flavigny. This snuff triggers memories of visits to Grand-maman's on the Plateau Mont-Royal and basking in her radiance. I particularly enjoyed Bordeaux's citrusy-floral notes after a meal of roast duck as a means of clearing the pallet of the residual fats as one would do with a trou-Normand.
