To pick up women.

Because some of them are not just pleasant smelling to others, but because they are wonderful to smoke.

The indiscriminate ridiculing of “aromatics” (as if all aromatics are the same) is as asinine as the indiscriminate ridiculing of anything else.

Snobbery, plain and simple.

It would be interesting to see objective evidence of this being the deciding factor in a successful pick up.

They are excellent for use as "condiment" tobacco's; sometimes not actually enough for a home "blend" but just for adding a pinch of extra to a bowl of something bland.

JK - I smoke mostly aromatics. Russ' Summer Splash has been in my pipe as I piddle around the shop in the evenings lately. I also like Virginia flakes and ropes but they require more attentions than I'm usually willing to give them. A good Burley/Cavendish aromatic is as comfortable and easy as the worn out t-shirt your wife wants to throw in the bin.

Recently I started ended up the day with a very light aromatic. Barbary Coast is my favorite. Not sure if Prince Albert or SWR is an aromatic but that's the level I'm talking about. I ordered a whole pound of Sutliff Creme Brulee one night after I had drunk too much Scotch. The bag is unopened if anybody wants it, PM your mailing address. First come first serve. I tried to pawn it off on Hugodrax but he has better sense. It's like smoking pudding.

I do like some Velvet on occasion also. GLP Triple Play also strikes me as barely aromatic for some reason but just barely.

Sometimes I'm just in the mood for something a little sweeter than most of the burley blends I smoke. As far as the room note helping in picking up girls, I bet my last dime you'd have a better chance smoking a good aromatic than Latakia Flake.

Makes it easier for Jule smokers to relate to you.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Does white Ariel smoke Jules? Or aromatics? How does that work underwater? I'm confused.

ETA: (Just to establish my Disney cred) I assume that if white Ariel smokes aromatics, she uses a snarfblatt.
