Red Lips Fashionista of the Week: Michelle W.

No comments

Hello Weekend!!!!!!

Happy Saturday, everyone! Thank you for joining us and reading another great article here at Red Lips and Cigar Sticks® we are happy to have you as one of our new, and/or faithful readers!

Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Michelle W. out of Oakland, California.


Michelle has been smoking cigars for six years. Her attraction to cigars started because she always liked the smell of cigars. And, one day, while in LA, she walked into a cigar shop to have her first cigar, which was the start of her cigar journey.


In many of our features, you might have noticed that the smell and the aroma of the cigars are always mentioned as a drawing point of interest. Therefore, one might wonder, what is it about the smell of cigars that’s so intriguing? For starters, when you first enter a cigar storefront, lounge, shop, and/or opening the doors to your very own personal humidor, you’re instantly greeted with the intense smells of the affray of cigars stored within the humidor. These smells can consist of wood, leather, coffee, toasted almonds, cherries jubilee, cedar and species, and so much more, which makes your senses go up since your smell and taste are directly related.

And, while smoking your cigar those are some of the very same flavors notes that’s tasted in your cigars, along with nutmeg, cedarwood, and hazelnut, which are all very appealing.  It’s no different than walking into a perfume/cologne store, you can smell all the different items throughout the store, which triggers your interest, as well as puts you in a happy and comforting place. It’s the same reaction you get from the smell of cigars buzzing from the humidor. Also, while smoking your cigar, as the smoke travels upward towards your nose, you can really smell and take in those aromas mentioned above.


As Michelle continued to take her cigar journey seriously, by learning about the different regions and blends, she discovered that she likes cigars that are Nicaraguan, as well as a Maduro blend, which is some of the tastiest and most flavorful blends in existence, when it comes to cigars. Michelle enjoys cigars such as Cohiba Nicaragua, Alex Bradley Presenado, La Gloria Series R, and La Flor Dominica Double Ligero.


Michelle enjoys a Cabernet or a Malbec with her cigars. She recently discovered Robert Mondavi’s Cabernet that’s aged in Bourbon barrels, which she enjoys and said it was very delicious with a cigar.
