I am a fan of floral flavors. Get the sneers and jeers out of the way because if you are dismissing a whole category of tobacco flavors you are doing yourself a great disservice.
Jasmine is one of the first flavors I ever smoked. In fact it’s the first hookah tobacco I ever bought so it has a bit of a special place in my heart. I am always happy to try a new brand’s interpretation on an old favorite so I jumped on the opportunity to try out a jasmine that just hit the market.
The smell on the Social Smoke Jasmine is that of flowery soap. I was a little worried at this point and when started the bowl I was still a little worried as the flavor was somewhat soapy and a little cloying. As the bowl heated up the flavors mellowed out and took on a nice nuance of sweet jasmine water with slightly fruity characters that real jasmine can exhibit if used properly. I really started to like this one and my worries melted away. I was just enjoying my hookah while watching a movie and my friends played a game on the dining room table and it was not until my friend asked me if I had packed another bowl that I realized how long this bowl had been smoking. It was around an hour and fifteen minutes that he pointed that out and there was still life left i the bowl. I would not have been surprised if another round of could could have pulled another hour out of that pack but it was late.
7 out of 10. I know that floral flavors are not for everyone but this is really worth a look. Social Smoke’s Jasmine is a great flavor that just needs a little patiences and time to really shine. Points lost for the initial flavor and the price.
