Fume D'Amour by Illusione


I can’t believe I haven’t smoked an Illusione Fume D’Amour since last year!

Returning from convalescing, this is pretty much my first cigar in two months; and a great way to come back.

I’m glad I choose this cigar for my first to smoke from my absence!

I’m smoking my last one today, so it’s time to order more.

Viso and Seco are tobaccos that come from the middle and lower thirds of a tobacco plant respectively and are what’s purported to be in this tobacco blend for Illusione’s Fume D’Amour cigar. These particular leaves that while both offer flavor, they are not as strong generally as higher-priming counterpart, ligero.

Punch-cut and a light and black pepper makes its self known via my nose but not my palette, overall this is a smooth start and I expect the same throughout. This is probably my fourth or fifth Fume D’Amour. Do I taste green apples?

Thick creamy smoke is why I love this cigar… every time.

At the last third, Oak is taking over with pepper still on the retrohale and I’m enjoying this last cigar in my inventory.

Until next time
Stay Smokey
Stay Chill
