Snuff by Schiaparelli is a really solid and nice woody-herbal aromatic fougère quite on the formal, mature and refined side; mostly centered on mossy notes, herbs, tobacco, lavender, carnation, balsamic-resinous-piney notes, iris. Not a powerhouse for sure, and not even a “dark fougère” with loads of bitter leather like many other scents of its era. There’s some leather here too, but Snuff is more bright and balsamic, more about herbs, woods and pine, with a gentle floral and slightly shady “barbershop” side. It has a really elegant feel of mellow softness all over, which reminds me of Hermès Equipage: that same type of “tobacco bag” smell, which evokes the effortless and relaxed elegance of a gentleman’s weekend. Oddly enough though, it also – and more strongly - reminds me of another scent which has quite a much different mood: the ultra-cheap yet underrated youngster Haschish pour Homme by Veejaga. Try it; I’ve both here around, and to me they share quite a lot of common notes, with two really similar drydowns. Snuff is just a bit darker and more formal initially, and overall smells perhaps a bit more “expensive”, but they’re really close. Well anyway, a solid and totally pleasant fougère, worthy a try, but sadly apparently nearly impossible to find.
