    Default Are there any Demeter frags worth it?

    That is the question..
    I've been interested in "Dirt" for quite some time, but I never see it anywhere, nor have I seen any from that house offering substantial discounts. So I'm curious, are there any worth the price? I hear longevity sucks on most, which is expected.. but aye.. I'm willing to consider if there's something above average.

    Whiskey Tobacco was surprisingly good, and surprisingly the sweetest and strongest of their pipe tobaccos.

    paperback is pretty good, the only one i've actually worn with some regularity.

    Dirt and leather are pretty good.

    Dirt and Gingerale are the best among the ones I've tried. Some of their line can tend to get plasticky and cheap smelling over time.

    The only one I own and wear is Gingerale. Very nice on hot summer days.

    Leather is okay. But it's more on the side of hide and kind of borders on beef jerky sometimes. I prefer something that smells like a jacket. Anyway, I have Fraser Fir and Snow, which I use as room sprays when I miss real winters. And Mahogany, which I've actually worn a few times. If you like woods, it's an excellent take on it. Smells like you're pressing your nose to some freshly sanded mahogany.

    Demeter's longevity seems to be poor for those few that I've tried (except Leather, which could be a good or bad thing).

    I agree. Also try Pruning Shears and Firefly if you can find 'em.

    What about the Watermelon one? Or what about any of the beachy-ish ones?
