For those who don’t smoke cigars, they see the regular cigar smoking as a habit. Nothing could be further than the truth. You see, cigar smoking is not a habit (how demeaning). It’s a culture. A lifestyle every aficionado appreciates and loves.
And as with every lifestyle, it requires a few accessories to make the lifestyle a pleasant journey through life. The cigar smokers journey might be through an aromatic cloud of smoke, but boy is the journey good. And to make the journey better, there are a number of cool cigar accessories on the market that you just must have.
For the cigar aficionado, not just any cigar cutter will do, it has to represent their lifestyle, as is with every other cigar accessory. So let’s look at a few cigar smoking accessories, shall we?
No serious cigar smoker should be without a humidor. Seeing as cigars require proper storage lest they get destroyed, you will need to invest in a humidor. Not just any humidor mind you, but a humidor that is fit enough to reflect your personality. From custom-made humidors to amazing factory made humidors, you can be sure to find one that “is really you”.
Cool threads? Check. Smoking hot shoes? Check. Tight belt? Check. Fine cigar? Check. Sharp looking cutter? Gorgeous cutter? Okay, nice cutter? What? You use a cheap cutter? How could you? And it’s even plastic? A cutter is to a cigar smoker what a chain is to a rapper - it has to shine. It is disrespect to yourself and your cigar to use a cheap cutter. I bet those cool threads feel like vomiting every time you put “that thing” in your pockets.
It’s time to upgrade to an S.T. Dupont or a sparkling Lamborghini double-blade cigar cutter. Trust me. Your cigar, will not change its taste, but you will definitely feel good having an elegant cutter to trim it with.
Ah yes, the cigar lighter. Without it, there will be no relaxing smoking session. Even if you have some matches on hand, you’d rather not use them – they’ll spoil your cigars flavor. Why then would you not invest in a good cigar lighter seeing as a cigar lighter is super important to your lifestyle?
Why not take a look at some palladium coated Davidoff Prestige cigar lighters or Colibri’s Julius Classic Luxury cigar lighters.
“Ah, yes. Life is good”. That’s what goes through everyone as they taste the flavors of their favorite smoke swirling in their mouth. “Oh, sh*t!” That’s upon realizing there is no ashtray nearby. Come on man, it’s time to stop improvising. Your empty cup of coffee or whiskey glass is not an ashtray.
Go through some Cohiba cigar accessories and select a gorgeous ashtray that will complement your smoking room. A classic example is one of their four cigar round ashtrays.
Any Cigar Accessories for Women?
It may seem as if all the cigar-related accessories are predominantly masculine in design but that is not so. True though, the world of cigars is still predominantly male, but the number of women cigar smokers is on the rise. Standing at 2% of American women, it’s not that far from the percentage of American men who smoke cigars – 9%. And that at such a fast pace that Habanos has crafted a cigar specifically targeting the female market – enter the Julieta.
As for cigar accessories for the cigar “aficionadas” (female cigar smokers), they may not be as many being advertised but you are bound to find a lot of good ones if you look. That being said, this is a great market gap for those who are willing to give it a shot.

If you don’t know where to start, start with Cohiba, they always have great stuff to suit every pocket.
