We’ve found that lots of people have a family member who smoked pipe tobacco. For many, it can be an incredibly nostalgic, comforting scent. Uncle Al’s House smells just like the sweet, smoky cherry pipe tobacco that our family’s pipe smoker, our great uncle Al favored most. One sniff and we’re transported back to his house. It was always thick with the lingering smoke of the pipe he puffed daily. Wisps of it leaving an ethereal, sweet, hazy trail throughout his sunroom, where he kept large work tables covered in model train sets. A magical space that enchanted us as children.
A stronger one than the Shoe Shop. Does not smell like a candle. Smells indeed like an old house that has absorbed the aroma of cherry pipe tobacco and old books for decades. I like it burning more than the immediate unlit smell. The test is when you leave and walk back in later. It really smells warm and delicious. Yet atypical of common sweet candles. It’s bold, masculine and temptuos. Different for me and now I’m thoroughly hooked.
Bought this as a sort of memento because my dad’s name was Al, haha. It has a very nice cherry tobacco scent that doesn’t overpower, but is strong enough to be able to catch little whiffs as a friendly lil hug. Like all Flynt Candle Company products I’ve purchased, excellent quality, and excellent customer service such as shipping notifications and updates! Really love that I found Flynt it feels great to do business with real people!
This candle reminds me of my dad. He smoked a pipe and his favorite tobacco was cherry vanilla. I lit this on Christmas Eve and it felt like my dad was there with us. It took me back! It’s Winter, and the fireplace is burning bright, warming up the house. My dad slips outside on the porch and smokes his pipe. The aroma sneaks back into the house and creates the memories that this brings back to me! Thank you!!!
This reminds me of my Grandpa and my Great Grandpa (and I’m a Grandma myself, so you get an idea of how nostalgic this scent is!).
I’ve been working from home in my small home office and I have a very stinky dog who likes to lie in there with me all day. This candle does a super job of making me forget that stink bomb is under foot.
This scent is even better than I imagined! It’s my new favorite!
So nostalgic! Could have a tad less sweet and more tobacco.
Not sure why we thought this would be good, wish I could exchange it.
