C’est La Vie means “That’s life!”, and this smooth and satisfying, richly aromatic blend will definitely bring your taste buds to life. Made mostly of the finest flue-cured tobaccos, it is gently pressed and cut in the traditional Cavendish method. This process infuses the leaf with a richly sweet and creamy note of French vanilla flavor. Even though the enrapturing aroma will fill the room, the taste is remarkably subtle, and it’s wonderfully easy on the tongue. Take yourself on an intriguing Parisian vacation with the goodness of C’est La Vie.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant

I found this tobacco blend to be a mild aromatic that produces a pleasant room note. I often take this blend on long walks. This particular blend, like the other Scandinavian Tobacco Group offerings, will not blow you away but does provide an enjoyable experience. I was not overwhelmed by the vanilla flavoring; for me, the topping added enough taste to make the intended point without being overly sweet, like for instance some examples of Cherry Cavendish often are.

This is a decent smoke. It isn't bad, it isn't mind-blowing. It packs well, smokes cool, and tastes decent. I have yet to taste any vanilla in it though. It's a good tobacco to keep in the car or in the workshop, but it certainly isn't anything I'd keep in my rotation on purpose.

Pipe Used: MM cob, various briars

This blend is completely inoffensive... which means that it's also somewhat without character in my opinion. It's mild with a pleasant room note so long as it's smoked slow and cool. And vigorous puffing will quickly cause that vanilla topping to scorch and become acrid. This is also packed VERY wet so definitely needs some dry-down time.
