Let me start by telling you a bit about myself. Before the violet I had only ever used the McC's O&G, so I have nothing for compaison to violet. I must also say that I am a manly man, hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking, building and the likes. With that said, I only ordered the violet asit seemed to intrique my woman, though she had no intention of sniffing it herself. So i recievered my order and opened the tin and as I thought it smelled of grandmas perfume, put not in a bad way. More of a reminisent scent from y childhood sort of way, so I took a sniff, WHOA! I drew it too far in as it was quite fine and rather dry, and what a burn! I loved it! That tiny little tin sure didn't last long. It's not an all day snuff, nor an every day snuff, but, good for occasions for relaxing. I can see myself on the porch on a summer eve sniffing this and enjoying the sunset with the hound. I can't say as though all would enjoy this product, but I believe most should at last try it. just get the minitin and its not a huge loss.
