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.
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.
