Snuff is a granular tobacco mass that can be drawn up through the nose (perfume snuff) or baked together like a pinch of snuff, which is then placed under the lip (wet snuff). Then, there are many different sorts so-called “Cheat snuffs”, or in a more fine word, portions of snuff.

Before the production of wet snuff, the perfume snuff was the most usual shape of snuff, but around the 18th century the wet snuff was also available on the market.
