Sealed Tins

Post by plainview » Wed Nov 01, 2017 12:33 pm

With the exception of the pull-top lid variety (a la McClelland, GLP), all of my sealed tins carry some pipe tobacco scent - noticed most especially at the lips/lids. I've long thought that the smell is simply a residue of the tins' time in the factory - bumping into objects with fragrant oil residues, etc. And, whenever I open these tins, the vacuum seals always are present.

Is there another explanation for the sealed tin fragrance? Is a vacuum sealed tin (a la Samuel Gawith, Esoterica) not 100% airtight?

Now, that's entirely believable.
