  • Where can you buy tobacco?

  • First of all, you need to know that in France, the sale of tobacco is regulated. Only tobacconists are allowed to sell tobacco. Moreover, the legislation prohibits the sale of tobacco on the Internet and by mail order. Therefore, you will not find tobacco on or on any other French website.

    The solution is to go directly to a tobacconist's and to find out what pipe tobacco your tobacconiste can offer you. Of course, each tobacconist makes his own selection and you will not find the same tobacco everywhere. We suggest you to contact the tobacconists nearby; they will certainly be able to advise you according to your tastes and eventually order some specific tobaccos for you!
