Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Denise Morales out of New York.


Denise is the owner and creator of CFC International, LLC, which is better known as Cigar Fetish. However, before this business was created, Denise was a former cigarette smoker, for 20 years, and when she stopped smoking cigarettes, she did not believe that she would smoke any tobacco products, period! Her familiarity to cigars was no stranger because her mother and sister are avid cigar smokers, so they both in a sense were advocating the cigar culture, but Denise was not ready to try a cigar, at this time.

However, in the summer of 2013, a very close friend of hers, who is a cigar smoker was gracious enough to provide her with a “starter packet” to get her started with a cigar and the proper essentials for her to cut and light her gifted treats, and this started her cigar journey. Over the course of these six years that Denise has been a cigar smoker, she’s smoked many different blends/types of cigars and it’s very hard for any cigar smoker, to pinpoint a favorite cigar, which we all tend to have a certain preference based on our moods and/or occasions.


Denise does get full enjoyment from smoking “The Hammer,” Padrón 50th Anniversary Limited Edition, this is one of the most beautiful and luxurious cigar projects, by this maker.  When Denise is having this cigar, she likes to pair it with a glass of white Hennessy to relax in her own down-time, but she also loves entertaining and socializing, and hosting events for friends and family, as well as for her fellow “Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf.” Denise truly enjoys smoking great cigars and having an outstanding libation to complement her cigar! Also, she loves being a part of the “Cigar Community” because of the fellowship and comradery amongst the phenomenal and wonderful “Brothers and Sisters of the leaf.”


This inspired Denise to develop her business, Cigar Fetish, because of her passion for cigars, which lead into a business venture that has afforded her the opportunity to travel and meet so many great individuals throughout the United States, and around the world, which she believes she would not have otherwise had this type of exposure, to meet other like-minded individuals.


Denise is our Red Lips Fashionista because of her involvement in the “Cigar Community,” she has a true admiration for the rich culture, of the “Cigar Lifestyle,” and she truly loves meeting so many amazing people of the culture, who she can share ideas with and discuss business plans that are reciprocated well!


Also, Denise is very fashionable, stylish, and sophisticated “Sister of the Leaf” (SOTL), who would like to continue to grow her business to provide a pleasurable social ambiance for the “Brothers and Sisters of the leaf” can truly enjoy themselves while smoking their cigar.  Denise lives by the motto of “aiming to please” and it’s her desire to maximize the cigar experience and create memories to share!
