    Well since I am a cigar smoker I am a bit biased. I smoke cigars and the ladies think I am very sexy. Lucky me!

    HELL NO....one of the nastiest smells on Earth. Tell your wife to shove that burning cancer stick into your mouth and make you eat it next time you try to light one up.

    I smoked years ago. Can't tolerate it--in any form--now.

    Oh, and cigar smokers are suckin' on a phallic symbol. Just ask Freud.

    I only like the smell of "Black and Mild" cigars. I still puff on them from time to time(w/o inhaling). Keeps me from going back to cigarettes.

    Horrible smell. Funny how tobacco can smell so different depending on whether it's a cigarette, a cigar or a pipe. Out of the three, cigar smoke is by far the worst!

    Cigars smell good. Problem I have is they still taste like ass. So I've tried them a couple times, but don't see the point in them.

    They're great if you want me to vomit all over you. Can't help it - the smell does it to me with predictable regularity.

    when i was a grad student- i worked with a coroner who
    would light up a cigar when we did an especially gross case,
    all of the aromas blended together to make them all a little more
    "pleasant". he would hold the cigar with a pair of forceps like a
    giant roach clip, never having to touch it; no matter how messy he was.
    those of who live in areas with a lot of blackflies somtimes will "dust"
    our clothes and exposed skin with cigar smoke, it seems to help
    the the little beasts at bay.

    Depends on the cigar. They're not all the same.

    ps-
    A cigar made by Acid Cigar called Nasty
    seems to be especially effective on blackflies.

    I'm a former smoker, quit 17 years ago, and yet I like the smell of tobacco smoke...pipes, cigars, and even cigarettes. I don't worry about the hazards of second hand smoke, either...I figure if I survived 30 years of 3-pack-a-day cigarette smoking, an occasional whiff of smoke isn't going to hurt me.

    No I don't. My Uncle Eddy smoked those things and I knew when he was at the house when I came home from school. I hated that smell, and still don't like it.

    True 'nuff.
    I can't stand the smell of cheap cigars. I'm not talking about price, either, because Dominican and Jamaican rounds can be had for as little as $3.00 each. I'm talking about machine made, tube bound, chemically flavour laced crapola cigars like Swisher Sweets or Black And Milds. Sorry; Alfalfa packed in a cardboard binder tube and wrapped with a reject leaf from Brown and Williamson before being sprayed with fake vanilla and glued to a plastic filter tip... that's not a cigar.
    Now, set me up on the big leather sofa with a glass of scotch and a Partagas 8-9-8 at the Vancouver Cigar Company, and I'm a happy man.

    I like smoking them and the way they smell. They remind me of the old guys down in the front row at the ballpark and of the NYC subways when I was a kid. Few things seem to polarize people like cigars. My father in law smokes cigars, so my wife thinks they're dandy.

    True, Swishers are the Yugos of the cigar world.

    Nice poll!

    I hate the damned things, along with anything else that burns tabacco. They are better than cigarettes, though.

    I agree with the assessment, but I think the good wife should aim a little lower.

    I'm not a smoker, but pipe tobacco can have a pleasant aroma. Cigars are simply vile. Cigarettes just make my blood vessels. chest and nose constrict.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    The aroma inside a tobacco curing barn - good. Burning tobacco - I'll pass.

    .
    Freud also died of oral cancer, and stopped saying much at all. Had his palate and jaw removed, but smoked cigars up to the bitter end.



    Cigar smoke smells OK for a few seconds, but it goes stale very quickly. And it really stinks up a place thoroughly, even if the place is a city street.
    They told me to wear more lycra, and I said "no, no, no."

    HELL NO! First of all, I never have and never will be someone who smokes.
    Second, the odor of the f-ing things smells like there's a dump fire going nearby.

    Cigars no ... pipes yes. And yes I'm a non-smoker. It's a nostalgic thing for me I guess. My grandfather used to smoke a pipe.
