Fribourgh & Treyer Old Paris is one of the original mixes that has persisted through out snuff history with its recognizable perfume that has a sweet and pungent tobacco taste with very woodsy notes. This amalgam is quite original, and to be appreciated must be treated as part of one's snuff education. The reddish brown color, fine grain and medium moisture has a slight burn when sniffed and delivers a medium nicotine clout. Enjoy a pinch today.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.

Simple upfront, complex over time.
It smells like old things and places.
In the heart of Dandyism, at 53 Jermyn Street in London (to be exact) you will find an exquisite bronze statue of George Bryan Brummel by Irena Sedlecka. A 7-minute walk down Jermyn Street will bring you to 34 Haymarket, the former home of Friboug & Treyer, which are the makers of this snuff. F&T was located here from 1720 until 1981. Clients included Mr. Brummel himself, as well as the future King George IV. Old Paris was “Beau” Brummel’s favourite snuff. This tin of rusty-red fluff greets you with a very slight burn. Feverish, its flavours are a subtle combination of leather, wet leaves, saddle soap, dates and rendered lamb fat. It tastes like the library at the East India Club. I was so deeply enamoured with it on the night we first met, that I immediately ordered the large box for fear of finding myself, at some point, without.
Absolutely Love this Snuff!! Strong, Very Moist and Course. Not for the faint of heart, you have to be willing to try something different. The Dates really stick out as soon as you break the seal you can smell them. Great satisfying Snuff.
Date liqueur, Cuban style tobacco with a medium grind. This stuff is world class. A little rough on the nose and very subtle in flavor make it a challenging snuff in that it's so good you will tend to snuff it till it hurts. A highly recommended experience of subliminal addiction.
