I understand snuff is the new... nouvelle cuisine? Black? Flavour of the month? Soup du jour?
I was invited to sniff some snuff on Friday in the company of Paul Cook (but not by him, please note) and advised that it was a big help on smelly tube journeys because it blotted out the aroma of fellow-humans; that it would probably make me sneeze; and that it might stain my upper lip yellow.
Once I had the reassurance that it wouldn't turn me into a smoker, I had a little pinch of the stuff.
It smelled of menthol and was a bit like sniffing white pepper although that actually did make me sneeze, and the snuff just made me feel like it.
I'd love to have a sweet little snuff-box, but the snuff itself? No, not really.
