This is a limited edition snuff.
It is hand-crafted in small batches to ensure even and pure aroma.
Pure natural sandalwood sourced from the jungles of Mysuru region of Karnatka is added to an exclusive snuff powder blend to create this masterpiece.

"While I am sure I have encountered sandalwood scent in numerous products before, I really doubt that any of them contained pure high grade oil (excluding some perfumes, where it is blended with other oils). The latest release by Six Photo piqued my interest and I ordered a tin of Mysore. And am I glad I did!
The picture doesn't do full justice to the colour of this snuff, which is actually more vivid than in the image above. It has a beautiful texture and is very easy to take by pinch and boxcar. I would call the grind medium, it's somewhat coarser than one would expect from an Indian snuff. Moisture is medium, too. Tin note isn't overpowering at all, sandalwood goes really well with this nice biscuity base tobacco. The burn is quite mild and short lasting, subsides fast, leaving that warming and comforting feeling. Flavour doesn't explode, but unfolds gently. This a well balanced snuff and you can feel the tobacco. Sandalwood lingers in the nose for long, subsiding and then reemerging suddenly. I won't be describing the scent (I'm too bad at it), but I find it blissful. After taking my very first pinch I realised that all I want to do is to sit down on a couch and breathe, enjoying the waves of this aroma. That's it..
It's a rare case when I don't think much about nicotine, for I feel it would be kind of inappropriate. Yes, nicotine is there (solid medium) and it surely adds to that comforting feeling. But first and foremost, it's The Scent.
Calling this snuff a masterpiece isn't an exaggeration."
